When to Get a New Roof Installed

At Above All, we understand a well-maintained roof is crucial for the protection and comfort of any home. Over time, roofs can deteriorate due to age, weather conditions, or other factors, leading to potential issues such as leaks, reduced energy efficiency, and compromised structural integrity, especially in our extreme Winnipeg climate. In such cases, it is important to consider getting a new roof installed. At Above All, we offer a wide range of professional roofing services and materials, to ensure your new roof can withstand all weather conditions and lasts for years to come. Let’s go over some of the signs that indicate the need for a new roof, the benefits of timely roof replacement, the ideal time for roof installation, how to choose a reputable roofing contractor, the roof installation process, and tips for maintaining a new roof.

Signs that Indicate the Need for a New Roof

  1. Age of the roof: One of the key indicators that it may be time for a new roof is its age. Most roofs have a lifespan of 20 to 25 years (some premium products can last up to 50 years). If your roof is approaching or has surpassed this age, it is advisable to consider a replacement.
  2. Visible damage or leaks: Obvious signs of water damage, such as water stains on ceilings or walls, are clear indications that your roof is compromised and needs attention. Additionally, cracked, warped, or missing shingles are visible signs of damage that warrant a new roof.
  3. Curling or missing shingles: Shingles that are curling at the edges or entirely missing expose your roof to potential leaks and further damage. Simply replacing these shingles individually may not be sufficient, and a new roof installation might be necessary to ensure complete protection.
  4. Increased energy bills: A worn-out roof can compromise your home’s insulation, causing your HVAC system to work harder to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. If you notice a sudden spike in your energy bills, it could be an indication that your roof is no longer providing adequate insulation.

Above All specializes in identifying these signs and providing professional assessments to determine if a new roof is required for your home.

The Benefits of Timely Roof Replacement

  1. Enhanced protection from the elements: A new roof offers superior protection against rain, snow, wind, and other weather conditions. It prevents water leaks, mold growth, and structural damage, ensuring the safety and well-being of your home and its occupants.
  2. Improved energy efficiency: Modern roofing materials and techniques are designed to enhance energy efficiency. By installing a new roof, you can reduce heat loss in winter and minimize heat gain in summer, leading to lower energy consumption and reduced utility bills.
  3. Increased property value: A well-maintained roof significantly enhances the curb appeal and value of your property. Should you decide to sell your home in the future, a new roof will defiantly attract potential buyers and increase its market value.

Above All understands the importance of these benefits, providing high-quality roof installations to all our clients.

Choosing the Right Time for Roof Installation

  1. Weather conditions and seasons: Timing is crucial when it comes to roof installation. Ideally, it should be scheduled during periods of dry weather to avoid complications and delays. Summer and fall are generally favourable seasons for roof replacements, as the weather tends to be more predictable.
  2. Scheduling during off-peak times: Roofing companies often experience higher demand during certain seasons. To ensure prompt service and potentially secure cost savings with Above All, consider scheduling your roof installation during the off-season in winter months, so when spring, summer and fall come around we can ensure the completion of your roofing project.

Above All offers flexible scheduling options and can help you choose the most suitable time for your roof installation, taking into account weather conditions and their availability.

Selecting a Reputable Roofing Contractor

  1. Researching local roofing companies: It is important to research local roofing companies that have a good reputation and a track record of quality work. Above All is a well-established roofing company in Winnipeg known for our dependable work, professionalism, years of expertise, and client satisfaction.
  2. Reading customer reviews and testimonials: Reading customer reviews and testimonials is an effective way to gauge the satisfaction level of previous clients. Above All takes pride in their positive customer feedback and testimonials, demonstrating our commitment to delivering superior service.
  3. Checking for proper licensing and insurance: Above All is fully licensed and insured, providing you with peace of mind knowing that we will meet all the necessary legal requirements and have appropriate insurance coverage.

By choosing Above All roofing, you can be confident that when we install a roof, it is done right and will last.
