When is the best time to replace a roof?

Are you wondering about whether your roof needs minor repairs, or if it needs a complete re-roofing? The advice from specialists, like those at Clinique de la toiture FCA in Montreal, will be very useful for you! Specializing in flat roofs, we can carry out both the renovation and the replacement of a roof; but unless there is an emergency that needs to be dealt with in the next few days, certain times of the year are more conducive than others for roof work. And sometimes, a simple repair is enough!

Having your roof inspected

Before starting any sort of work, our expert roofers specialized in all types of roofs (including white roofs) will inspect yours by searching for potential problems; after all, there is no point in completely replacing your roof if a repair of a few hundred dollars will be enough! They will check the state of the covering, will search for traces of water infiltration and will inspect the drains, the insulation as well as many other points.

If problems are detected (such as mold, infiltrations or a covering in bad condition), we will offer you a timetable of the required work, depending on the urgency of the situation.

When should a roof be repaired or replaced?

If it leaks or if repairs are urgent, the work should be carried out as soon as possible and this, no matter the season. However, if it’s not an emergency, it’s better to undertake the work in the spring or the fall, when temperatures are milder, not to cold nor too hot. This is especially true if you need to replace a shingle roof, since very low temperatures will prevent the tiles from properly sticking.

Moreover, did you know that you could benefit from grants for the renovation of a roof? Indeed, the different levels of government—and even some municipalities—propose financial aids for home renovation; find out if the work you are planning is eligible!
