One thing people should really focus on is that they have a balanced roof system.

A properly installed roof system with the proper underlayment's and venting will reduce the roof top snow removal burden year after year.


The snow melting on the roof outside ambient weather conditions is a problem between a lack of venting and a lack of insulation quality of the sort. With a lack of venting and air circulation or fresh air exchange.  You can see a very large amount of condensation that will actually drip in the interior of the house which can also make it look like it's a roof leak.

So snow removal is just masking the issues at hand and pushing them off till another time.


To really tackle the problem contractors need to start being more inquisitive in regards to the roof system. Hire a pro.

Things to do

1- Hire someone to do a roof inspection to make sure you have a properly balanced venting system. This system should be balanced with the proper vents at the top of the roof to exhaust Warm air, in addition, you do need some soffit vents or intake vents at the lower edge of the roof if none are present at the soffit area.

2- Make sure you have a good R value of insulation in the attic. And open soffit vents.

We have a good contractor that can top up the insulation in the attic with some nice blown in insulation.


We do it right. We price it right.

Adrenaline Trusted Regina roofer tip on which elements affect the lifespan of your roof


What elements affect the lifespan of my roof? 

Several questions need to be answered when determining the approximate lifespan of a roof that has been correctly installed. To start, one must examine the type of a roof. Whether the roof is sloped or flat, it has two basic elements: the roof deck and the wood planks, plywood, or oriented strand board, otherwise known as particle board. These elements are usually used in residential construction and have a weather-resistance or waterproof finish. A sloped roof can be finished with asphalt composite shingles, wood shingles/shakes, clay tiles, metal, or slate tiles.

                                      


A flat roof’s membrane typically includes several layers or plies of felt with a coat of tar between each ply. The surface of the roof is then covered with gravel to protect the membrane from the sun. Other flat roof finishes include a rubberized asphalt membrane, or plastic and rubber membranes. Even a flat roof is slightly sloped to allow the roof to drain properly and dry. The slope of the roof must also be taken into account. The weather resistant finish of a sloped roof can be compared to an umbrella - designed to shed water or snow and dry before the materials become saturated. The steeper the slope, the better the roof sheds water. Therefore, a typical asphalt composite shingle may last longer on a roof with a greater slope, as it allows the shingle to dry faster. 


Other factors that affect the roof’s lifespan include its proximity to weather, including sun, wind, rain and snow. Take exposure to the sun as an example: On a sloped roof finished with asphalt composite shingles, the portion of a roof that faces south or southwest typically has more exposure to the sun. The sun’s rays can cause the shingles to become brittle and age prematurely. This is why some areas may show more deterioration then others.


                                    


The conditions in an attic space can also affect  a roof’s life. If insulation and ventilation levels are inadequate, air leaks from an interior living space can cause a build-up of warm, moist air. Under certain weather conditions, moisture condenses in  an attic space, potentially causing mold and mildew accumulation on the roof deck and framing, which can lead to wood rot.

The following summary provides a typical life expectancy of various roof finish materials:

   Asphalt composite shingles: 1525 years

   Wood shakes/shingles: 1535 years

   Slate tiles: 35100 years

   Built up roof (tar and gravel): 1030 years

   Modified bitumen: 1525 years

   Rolled roofing (selvage): 5 10 years

It takes a trained eye to properly evaluate a roof and to understand the many facts that affect the performance of a roof system. A properly trained home inspector can provide a homeowner with an objective opinion regarding the current conditions of a roof.

Adrenaline Trusted Regina Roofers tip on keeping your eavestroughs clean


 

Keep your eavestroughs clean to prevent costly damage to your home:

Often homeowners neglect exterior items of their home, like the eavestroughs (gutters) and downpipes. But neglecting them can lead to serious problems with both the home’s interior and exterior. That’s why it is extremely important to keep up annual outdoor maintenance on your home to avoid costly problems later on.

 

 

If your roof gutters are too high for you to safely take care of yourself, you can always hire a professional for the job. If it’s something that you feel you can safely do yourself, here are some things to keep in mind when caring for your eavestroughs.

Be sure to clean out your eavestroughs at least twice a year. It is important to do this before the temperature drops below freezing, so remember to schedule this in for the fall and then again in the spring.

 

 

The gutters need to be cleared of any debris and make sure the drains to the downpipes are open. Clogged gutters can cause many issues like discolouring your siding or causing leaks inside your home. Even something as simple as leaving rotting leaves in there can rot wood fascia, damage shingles, and break the eavestrough itself.

Safely climb up on a ladder to inspect the eavestroughs and see what debris may be clogging them up. You should wear gloves when clearing them out because of sharp metal bits that could be in there or use a garden hand shovel to get out dirt and leaves and put them into a bag that you can hang on the ladder. Once everything is cleaned out, wash the gutters out with a hose and the water should drain properly down the pipe. You can always install mesh screens or leaf guards to make this job easier in the future. If you can, also open any downpipes that have been crushed at the ground. Another thing to inspect is the eavestrough’s nails and then hammer in any loose ones back into the fascia.

 

 

Taking the time to inspect and maintain your home’s eavestroughs will help protect your home from precipitation and help minimize water damage to the outside and inside of your home.
