Best Calgary Roofing Contractors
When it comes to roofing contractors in Calgary, we stand out from the competition. Here’s why we are considered the best in the industry:
A damaged roof can result in water leaks and infiltration, leading to water damage inside the property. Water can compromise the structural integrity of the building and promote the growth of mold and mildew.
Water leaks from a damaged roof can cause damage to ceilings, walls, insulation, and electrical systems, leading to costly repairs and inconvenience for occupants.
Damaged roofs can pose safety hazards, especially if there are loose or hanging materials that might fall or cause injury.
A compromised roof can result in energy loss, as conditioned air escapes, leading to higher energy bills.
Common Causes of Emergency Roofing Repairs
Several factors can lead to the need for emergency roofing repairs in Calgary:
Severe storms with high winds, hail, and heavy rain or snow can cause roof shingles to be torn off, flashing to be damaged, or structural issues to occur.
Hailstorms can cause dents, cracks, and punctures in roofing materials, leading to leaks and water infiltration.
Fallen Trees or Debris
Fallen trees or debris during storms can impact and damage roofs, requiring immediate attention.
Heavy snow accumulation can place excessive weight on roofs, leading to structural damage or even collapse.
Immediate Actions in Roofing Emergencies
In the event of a roofing emergency, homeowners should take the following immediate actions:
Prioritize safety for yourself and your family. If there are any immediate risks, such as electrical hazards or structural instability, evacuate the property and seek shelter elsewhere.
Contain the Water
If there are active leaks, try to contain the water with buckets or other containers to prevent further interior damage.
Do Not Attempt Repairs
Avoid attempting DIY repairs, especially during a roofing emergency. Climbing onto a damaged roof can be dangerous and might exacerbate the problem.
