In fact, many clients initially notice a mouldy smell or see traces of water damage alerting them to the issue. Our experienced and friendly, professional team can assess the damage and provide you with an accurate quote to return your abode to fresh and fabulous in no time.

Interior and Exterior Perimeter Check

Claw Roofing in Calgary recommends conducting biannual maintenance checks

around your property. Travel from room to room and watch for interior water staining marks and visible water damage or moisture. Check closets and storage areas as carefully as any other room. Water damage can be seeping upwards from cracks along your foundation or subsequent issues. When you check the exterior, look for pooling water, inconsistent drainage, poor ventilation or roofing components in need of repair. Pay attention to any locations that suffer from icicles or ice build-up as they often deteriorate faster. Improperly installed HVAC systems can showcase their age and ill fitted status by contributing to areas of standing water.

Wind, Hail, Rain and Snow

A tremendous amount of roof issues can occur due to storm damage that occurred months prior. Storm season can suddenly arise and the extent of damage may remain unknown until the wetter and warmer months arrive. Conducting your maintenance checks in spring and fall are highly recommended. Standing water and improper drainage can influence mold and mosquitoes; two items that can make your life miserable. Thankfully, Claw Roofing in Calgary can help you fix, repair, remove and replace any leaky or damaged roofing materials.

Trees

The gorgeous trees along your property may benefit from a specific trim if they are constantly clogging your gutters. Overhanging branches can add excess weight and irreparable damage to your gutters if left unchecked. It is vital to clean your gutters on a regular basis to be proactive with removing natural debris that can interfere with water’s ability to correctly exit your roofline and drain away from your home.

Surface Erosion

Surface erosion can occur from aging shingles, punctures and critter damage that all contribute to wear and tear in certain areas of your roof. This lack of protection can leave you more closely exposed to the elements than you prefer. Surface erosion can lead to significant damage if left untreated.
