Heating and cooling your home can be a year-round expense in Toronto with extreme temperatures that require furnaces and air conditioners to work hard. Keeping your home comfortable is easier if your HVAC system is complimented by a well-insulated roof and air-tight windows. By weatherproofing your roof and investing in proper attic ventilation in Toronto, you may improve the energy efficiency of your home and save money on utilities over time. At Alpine Roofing, we provide skilled roof leak repairs and maintenance services on roofs of any size or material.
You may not even realize, but the quality and state of your roof can have a significant impact on the amount of money you spend on heating and cooling each month. Below are a few tips for weatherproofing your home and protecting it from the elements over the long-term:
Weatherproofing Protects Your Investment – Weatherproofing will increase the longevity of your roofing system by sealing it and protecting it from water damage. It will also save you money on roof repairs over time. When weatherproofing is completed, our roofers will perform a thorough inspection and repair any existing damage. Finally, a sealant will be applied to the roof.
Protect a Flat Roof – Flat roofing in Toronto is particularly susceptible to leaks and water damage due to standing water, so waterproofing is a great option. This is especially true in rainy or wet climates. If you live in or around the city, you understand the elements your roof must battle against throughout the year, melting ice and snow. Consider investing in a high quality roofing material and upgrading your investment so that it will last much longer than asphalt shingles alone and prevent the need for roof leak repairs.
Proper Attic Ventilation – When it comes to extending the life of your roof, attic ventilation is one of the most important components. Our contractors will visit your home and inspect the current state of your attic. If necessary, we will carry out the steps to properly ventilate the area. By doing so, your attic will be able to push outside air into your home to remove heat and moisture. This will help your home stay cooler in the summer, reducing air conditioning costs, and also prevent frost and ice dams from building up in the winter. Many homeowners tend to experience a positive impact on their monthly utility expenses once this system is installed.
