Spring Roofing Repairs & Maintenance

It can be tremendously alarming if your recent spring inspection revealed a swamp situation among your flat roofing. Unaddressed slope issues and too flat of a grade due to improper installation, age and stress can cause significant structural damage over time. Sagging roof issues create pooling water and a path of least resistance for standing water to eventually flow to. This can escalate to interior and exterior water damage and extend to issues far surpassing your roof. One season of improper snow or ice removal can be catastrophic to your flat roof and leave you in need of repair or replacement. Claw has all of your flat roof repair Calgary!

Calgary Roofing: Fix Your Improper Drainage Issues

Discovering the root cause of your flat roofing emergency is the best way to amend the issue. Improper drainage due to clogged gutters and downspouts can lead to organic debris accumulation. This can create a damp environment that is prone to mildew, rot and mold. It is essential to manually clear your gutters and inspect your downspouts, metal flashing, soffits, vents and fascia components at least twice a year to stay proactive with the health of your roof. If you are uncomfortable climbing ladders and conducting roofing maintenance, ensure that you hire a professional company to help you complete these dirty and necessary tasks.

Prevent Flat Roof Repair & Remove Overhanging Branches

Claw Roofing takes preventative maintenance highly into account during our roof assessments. If your gutters are continually plugged due to ultra-close landscaping, a simple tree haircut can save the day. If one overhead branch is causing you the most grief, consider having it professionally and carefully removed. It is preferable to keep your tree for shade, wildlife, oxygen and aesthetics. If you can save the tree and simply remove the main branch culprit, you can create a winning situation.
