How to prevent leaky roofs in winter in Ottawa


Depending on the duration of the winter and amount of snow accumulated on your roof can say everything we need to know.

Around this time of year I would clear the snow from the first 6 feet of the roof of our home starting from eavestroughs. I would clean all the valleys as well as all the roof ventilation if it’s covered with snow or not.

Skylights are not to be forgotten. Most roof leaks are caused by ice damming and Skylights are one of those obstacles that require preventive maintenance prior to warmer temperatures.

Having all necessary maintenance done on your roof before the thaw can save you from experiencing leaks and thousands of dollars.

Preventive maintenance is a scheduled service to minimize risks of having water damage caused by snow and ice accumulations on your roof.

Depending on the pitch of the roof, snow may pile up due to design of the roof trusses. When there are walls and valleys are involved, it is venerable to accumulation. Melting snow can turn into ice damming and cause water pooling on your pitched roof.  If you have experienced leaks due to ice damming, it is highly recommended to do preventive maintenance on your roof.

Heat loss is another reason why the accumulation of the ice is greater when compared to neighboring houses. When there isn’t significant amount of insulation is in your attic, this can increase your heating bills dramatically. Blue staining and leaks when temperatures drow down to ZERO amd warmer are the signs of heat loss.

Having proper ventilated attic is another important factor. Your attic should be same temperature as the outside. If not there is an issue with your ventilation system. This can cause ice damming and leaks.

A new roof has more advantages in the long-term when compared to repairing it once or twice a year. Roof Repairs may  cost few hundred dollars but again depending on the situation it may be a lot more than you’ve expected.
Most important advantage of a new roof is that you will be worry free for a very long time if it was done right. You may have to come up with the money at once and getbitbover with, charge it to a credit card or whichever makes you comfortable.

Depending on the weather your roof will age a lot faster when compared to milder weather when no rain or snow is in the forecast. Heavy rain is the worst when it comes to wear and tear. Annual roof inspection is a must if your roof is older than 8 years. Eavestroughs needs to be cleaned at least once a year prior to winter. It can be DIY project for the homeowners but again, if its difficult to access, hiring a professional roofing company is a must. All these maintenance costs will add up at the end of the year.
