The Summer is Officially Here with North American Heatwave

A Reminder About Roof Maintenance and Inspection

Summer is here already, and some are rejoicing at the chance to enjoy sunny days in the park and backyard parties with loved ones. However, the entirety of North America was struck with a heatwave last week that required cooling stations to be opened throughout the Toronto area, providing water and snacks to those in need. The public often thinks of roofing and roof maintenance during the harsh winter months, but the intense heat can also cause great strain on your roofing system as well.

The local roofing experts here at Roof Pro + want all of the citizens of Toronto to be safe and secure during this time, and make sure your roof is in perfect condition. Harsh rain, wind, and snow are certainly great threats to the health of your roofing, but the intense heat and moisture will cause stress and damage as well. If you believe that your roof is already in a critical condition, the summer heat could be the last straw, causing great damage to your home.

Staying on the Cutting Edge of Roofing Science

Studying the Latest Advancements in the Roofing Industry

Roof Pro + may be experts in the field with the experience that is required to become known as Toronto’s best roofing company. However, this does not mean we are set in our ways or refuse to learn new things about roofing and building science. In fact, we have made it a top priority to stay constantly educated and updated with respect to technological changes in the field. Our President, Chris Hasenauer, is the roofing expert and leading authority on the current industry trends and knowledge on the scientific side of the business.

One important aspect of roofing education is understanding exactly how a manufacturer instructs the contractor to install their product. A roofing warranty is a very valuable thing, securing your home financially in an unfortunate event. However, this warranty can become null and void if the roofing system is not installed correctly! Contractors must know precisely what the manufacturer says about installation and follow the directions. Roof Pro + studies this intensely, and always make sure the work is installed properly. The difference between a roof lasting 10 years with good installation and 30 years with excellent installation can be minor, which is why attention to detail and following manufacturer instruction is so very important.

The Great Need for and Benefits of Attic Insulation

Energy and Money-Saving Opportunity for 7 Million Canadians

There are far too many in this country that do not have attic insulation, though this is changing quickly. As technology advances and energy costs increase due to limited resources, more and more Canadians are finally seeing attic insulation as a necessity instead of a luxury. While there is an initial cost associated with attic insulation, the long term benefits are absolutely outstanding, and are well worth the proactive purchase. The skilled professionals at Roof Pro + may be experts in roofing, but they also excel in attic insulation as well, and can save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

Insulating your attic is the number one way to lower the cost of your monthly power bill. When one weighs this fact against the truth that 7 million Canadians do not have attic insulation, the reality is mind-boggling. Everyone wants to save money on their energy bill, and this is especially true during the rugged winter months here in Ontario. One reason so many citizens do not have attic insulation is the fact that it may be difficult to tell if a home has the appropriate level of insulation in the first place. A homeowner can inspect an attic and not have the expertise to understand if they are hemorrhaging money by not having the proper insulation.
