When to Call an Expert?

There's no question that homeowners can handle many basic home repairs personally. While this is undoubtedly money-saving, a DIY approach is not always the best. This is especially true with more specialized repairs (like roof leak repair and attic leak repair).

Attic and roof repairs are quite specialized, and it’s essential to understand the cause and scope of a problem. That’s where an expert would be a valuable asset – to evaluate the problem areas, recommend a remedy, and fix it right from the start. Whatever the problem – from roof leaks to flashing issues to moisture build-up – an expert inspection will soon determine the extent of repair required. Most importantly, early diagnosis is the best way to prevent more significant problems from arising.

With EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, homeowners are assured that water leakage problems are correctly identified and a suitable remedy is offered. More than that, EcoComfort will do it all, from shingle replacement to roof restoration. The experts at EcoComfort see the roof and attic as a "system," meaning that many elements work together to provide benefits. As such, upgrades and improvements might include better vapour barriers, better ventilation, and better air sealing.

Expert Attention for Attic and Roof Leak Repairs

When maintenance is neglected, including roof and attic leak repairs, the potential for damage can result in serious restoration work that calls for emergency roof repair. That’s why it’s important to have the roof inspected from season to season, and professionally assessed for necessary repairs. Here, a preventive approach will really pay off – doing routine attic and roof leak repairs will allow for proper upkeep and the prevention of bigger problems, not to mention emergency roof repair situations with plenty of damage.

Common Causes of Roof Leaks

For the most part, homeowners don’t ever go into their attic. The fact is, few homeowners know what to do up there or what to look for in the event of problems. With something serious like water leakage, there’s much to consider – there may be a roof leak; there may be ice damming; there may even be a high level of attic condensation. And here, finding the origin and extent of the leakage is likely beyond the capacity of the average homeowner.

While not all roof leaks are a sign of trouble, there may be a need for roof leak repair or attic leak repair. The key is to pinpoint the problem, and this may well require a professional roofing specialist. The worst option is to undertake a DIY remedy when an expert is needed. 

  • Flashing is Cracked: Flashing is installed under roof shingles to provide a water-resistant barrier. Leaking is prevalent when flashing is cracked or broken.
  • Broken Roof Shingles: Missing shingles or broken shingles are easy to identify. This problem can cause a slow leak in the roof as water collects in the attic.
  • Valleys Aren’t Sealed: With a sloped roof, a damaged valley can allow rainwater to leak into the attic as water freely runs down the roof's slope.
  • Damaged Roof Vents: When roof vents are damaged or compromised, outside water can leak into the attic and roof cavity through the damaged edges.
  • Build-up of Ice Dams: When ice forms on the edge of the roof, it prevents melting snow from draining, and the build-up of water can cause various damages.
  • Cracks in Chimney: Chimney cracks typically develop in the chimney’s mortared areas, particularly where the chimneystack connects to the roof.
  • Skylight Problems: Poorly installed skylights will leak rainwater around the edges of the unit. But it could also be a problem with the flashing around.

Seasonal Roof & Attic Leak Damage

Homes in the Greater Toronto Area can fall victim to roof and attic leaks any time of the year. But, with the seasonal conditions of Southern Ontario, certain weather conditions increase the likelihood that you will need attic roof leak repair or emergency roof repair. 

  • Spring: Between March and June, rain is regularly forecasted and snow from the winter is simultaneously melting at a fast rate. Together, this leads to an influx in water that can seep into damaged roofs and infiltrate attics. 
  • Spring & Fall: When the temperature changes quickly between hot and cold, the cities in the Greater Toronto Area tend to see high speed winds. With more wind storms and windier days in the past couple years, it’s important for homeowners to keep an eye out for roof damage. It’s not uncommon for wind storms to rip shingles off roofs or puncture roofing with debris. This type of damage creates vulnerabilities that provide an opportunity for leaks and water damage that require emergency leak repairs.
  • Winter: Infamous for damage, winter brings ice, hail, freezing rain, and snow to homeowners in the Greater Toronto Area. Freezing rain, ice, and snow are all very heavy, as these types of precipitation build up on the roof they can cause wear and tear to building materials and attic insulation.

To find out if you have any existing attic damage, or if you need attic roof leak repair in Toronto or the surrounding area, contact EcoComfort to schedule an attic inspection.
