Brutal Winter - Is Your Roof Prepared

When the expert meteorologists claimed earlier this year that this season could be a harsh one for Ontario, they seemed to have made an accurate prediction. The first major hurricane of winter is quickly approaching the United States eastern seaboard, and this monstrous hurricane will have an effect on parts of southern and eastern Ontario. This means a special danger for homes in need of roofing maintenance and repair.

We are no strangers to harsh winter weather, but 2012 poses a special type of threat, the likes of which we will see in the earlier parts of next week. While it is too early to tell if hurricane Sandy will cause major snow in the area, heavy winds and rains are expected to hit the area early next week.

Roofing Management and Winter Storms

Post-Tropical Storm Leslie Reminds Homeowners of Roofing Importance

Last month, post-tropical storm Leslie pounded Newfoundland, causing power outages, uprooted trees, and roof devastation. While those accustomed to the harsh Canadian climate are fully aware of these dangers, it serves as an important reminder of the necessity of proper roofing. Roofing maintenance and inspection should be performed regularly, especially with the prevalence and power of Canada’s rugged winter storms.

We live in a beautiful area of pristine wildlife and iconic winter views, but this majestic location can be very dangerous as well. In order to properly protect your home and family, proper roofing may be the most important aspect of living in the Ontario area. Disaster preparedness should be at the forefront of any homeowner’s mind, and roofing is at the top of this list. While backup power, emergency kits, and crisis planning are all important, having a durable and healthy roof may be the most essential factor during a crisis.

Far too many homeowners do not think about their roofing situation until it is too late. The roof is seen as an afterthought, an aspect of the home that only needs attention when there is a definite need for repair. Nothing could be further from the truth. Roofing is subjected to the harshest of the elements, constantly being tested, battered, and belted with harsh winter weather. Much like a vehicle, regular inspection and maintenance is necessary before real trouble occurs. If this is not done, a winter storm can become a calamity that may cost you thousands.
