We have been working in Barrhaven pretty much this whole summer and lots of roofs needs replacing. If the majority of your roof is facing south or southwest you will be replacing your roof more often.
You roof protects you, keeps you dry and keeps you cold. Poor maintenance is the biggest problem with most of the houses. A simple leak can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. First time this season we have run into a house that has so much plywood damage it was a nightmare. Every section we removed the old shingles had water damage. Total of four guys against this one house full of surprises. It is so dangerous to walk on it because we might end up in one of the bedrooms unintentionally.
There are many steps homeowners can take to eliminate further damage caused by a leak, poor ventilation or ice damming. If your roof leaks once it will follow the same path and cause more damage in your attic. Always clean your gutters twice a year. Make sure there is proper intake and ventilation system in place to eliminate ice damming or prevent leaks.
