How can you know if you require an urgent roof repair?

Jun 25


Sometimes, urgent repairs to the roof are needed because roof problems don't get better on their own. Roof problems only become worse over time, particularly when water is in the mix.

The bottom line is that if there is an issue that could potentially endanger your home or business there is a good chance that you need an emergency repair to your roof. In the meantime, however there are some significant alarms that signal that you should call Toronto roofing experts for a repair as soon as possible.


Most likely, you'll require roof repairs on an emergency basis when:


  • You could have a leaky roof

  • See missing or damaged shingles

  • Flashing around valleys or chimneys, wall junctions, and pipe boots, elevated or failing

  • It is vital to have a contractor visit your roof as soon as possible to fix any problems. This can prolong the life of the roof and help you save thousands in replacement costs.


Let's have a look of each and consider why an urgent roof repair is required.


Leaks in Your Roof

Leaks will never improve with time, they just get more severe. Even if you only see just a tiny amount of damages, water damage can remain very significant. Water can penetrate the walls of your home, causing damage to your insulation as well as the boards which hold your home together and that means it can cause harm that you aren't aware of until it's too far gone. The water can cause damage to your roof or cause wood to decay and seep through your walls.


It is vital to contact a Toronto roofing firm if you observe a leak, or any other symptoms.

Shingles damaged or missing

Damaged or missing shingles could provide a pathway for water to get into your home. Materials for roofing aren't compatible, which is the reason your roof is designed to be water-tight. Moisture can do tremendous amounts of destruction to the structure of your home. In addition to active leaks that can let water in through the walls and ceilings and floors, water can encourage the growth of mildew and mold. Both mildew and mold could cause serious health issues, therefore, you must deal with cracked, missing, broken or otherwise damaged shingles as soon as possible.


Flashing in the Failing or In the Position that is Lifted

Flashing is a thin , pliable material generally galvanized steel. However, it can be made from other metal or materials that directs water away from your roof. It is visible where the roof plane intersects a vertical surface, like dormers or walls. It's also placed around certain things on your roof including chimneys, vents, or skylights.


Because its role is to channel water away from these areas, it must to be maintained. It could let water in your home if your flashing becomes rusted, lifted, or is otherwise damaged.
