Unpredictable weather conditions are on the rise in Ottawa. Long winters with lots of snow, major floods due to rain and melting snow and recently, tornados passing thru Ottawa and the Valley.

As a homeowner, there are list of maintenance that needs to be inspected and repaired in order to prevent the worst from happening. Your roof, foundation and exterior walls protect you and your family from elements of mother nature. There are ways to be proactive and inspect regularly.

Your roof must be in top notch shape to perform under high gusting winds, sun, rain, snow and ice. Shingles alone is not enough. Second line of defense is very important to act as a moisture barrier to perform. Good dept of insulation and proper ventilation will save energy.  Once the roof is 10 years old its time for inspection and maintenance. Only a professional roofing contractor will know what to look for. Clean eavestroughing twice a year and install leafguards if located in wooded areas.

Your siding protects you from all directions. Have a qualified siding contractor inspect all the walls, caulk around the windows, vents, chimney ect.. to keep it dry and intact. One piece of lose siding could turn into entire wall if not repaired asap. Call your local siding contractor for repairs.

Soffit and fascia are the cosmetic details plus ventilated soffit allow fresh air to enter into your attic and push the moist air out thru the roof ventilation. Has to be balanced. Soffit and fascia is also there to keep the wildlife out in the wild not in your attic. Hire professional soffit and fascia contractor for repairs.

If there are issues with the roof and you are avoiding it, it can cost you way more than you think.

There is nothing wrong with repairing it here and there but the real question is how often your roof needs to be repaired, how much money have spent on repairs and the final question is how much would cost to replace the entire roof?

Did somebody say winter? Yes you heard it right winter. It is that time of year cleaning the front and back yard few times until there is no more leaves left to rake.

You don’t necessarily need to be living beside a lot of trees but the wind has its own method of drifting. Cleaning around the house gives every home a fresh and clean start when the spring is knocking at the door. But before we go to fast, we need to make it thru the winter first. It takes a lot of dedication to take all the necessary steps to protect yourself and your loved ones from the cold winter days. For starters make sure your hydro and natural gas bills are paid up to date for any surprise delays during cold days. Your roof is in good shape and has been inspected by a professional roofing company. Any branch that is leaning towards your roof is a potential danger so trim it down. All the gutters are free from leaves, debris and maybe tennis balls. It may sound strange but I’ve seen it too many times. A clogged drain is a first element of a massive ice dam that could destroy your home and cost you a chunk. Make sure all the drains are functioning and water is being guided “away” from your foundation.

If you have a low-pitched roof that is facing north, be sure to keep an eye on it because it can get messy especially when the thaw begins. Roof rakes are good to have but always hire insured and experienced roofing companies to perform the risky stuff, don’t take a chance. If you notice a leak, call your local roofing company to remove all the snow and ice off the roof.
