The Importance of Roof Inspection
Your home’s roof is its first line of defense against storms and extreme weather, be it a foot or more of snow dropping from the sky overnight or high winds that tear through the town. When homeowners place blind faith in their roof and neglect it completely until the first sign of a leak appears in the ceiling, they could already be facing unwanted structural issues, mold growth, or damaged insulation, for starters.
Aside from potential storm damage, you should also arrange inspections routinely. The first time you will want to carry out your inspection is, once before the season with the most severe weather, and once after. Roofing materials installed over a decade ago require yearly inspections because they start to wear down faster as they age. If you have a new roof, you can wait three to five years for a professional evaluation, followed by bi-annual checkups. While age affects the frequency, it’s best to schedule your appointment.
Regular roofing inspections are vital to keeping your home safe and secure, but it’s imperative that you choose a quality company. Spare yourself a headache down the road by having your roof periodically inspected by the All Weather Exteriors, they provides high-quality, reliable, and affordable work.

When is the best time to replace my roof in Winnipeg?
As we all know Winnipeg has cold winters! Luckily, a new roof can be installed in most types of weather, and asphalt shingles do not have any specific guidelines when it comes to the required installation temperatures. Many roofing contractors can install asphalt shingles even in cold weather as long as they take certain precautions. When maintained at colder temperatures asphalt shingles can become very brittle, leading to breakage if care is not used. Storing these products in a warm temperature and then transferring just a few bundles to the roof at any time can help minimize any brittleness and breakage.
Another issue involved when installing asphalt shingles in cold weather is sealing, because the self sealing strips may not adhere properly due to the colder weather. In cold weather and windy conditions the contractor should use hand tabbing, applying adhesive to the shingle undersides in quarter size amounts so that the shingles seal together properly. When the weather warms up the self sealing strips will set as intended, and the added adhesive holds the product in place until then.
The best time to roof in Canada could be spring (March-May), early summer (June), and the fall (September-November). The climatic conditions between March and June provide the ideal settings for the metal and asphalt roofing. The material rates and the Winnipeg Roofing Contractor quote prices will also be moderate during these months.
