4 common roof problems and how to fix them

Roofs are subject to the elements, extreme temperature fluctuations and flying debris. They face many challenges throughout their lifespan. At René Perron Couvreurs, we specialize in roof repairs in Montreal. Our expert team has prepared this blog to inform you about four common roof problems and how to fix them. Enjoy reading!


1.     Water leak

A leaky roof is every homeowner’s worst nightmare. You can often tell if water is seeping into your home because you’ll see dark, blotchy stains on the ceiling. A leaky roof can damage the structure of your home and reduce its resale value. To avoid this issue or have your roof repaired, it’s a good idea to schedule regular inspections and have any damage repaired as soon as possible.


2.     Mould

Mould can be a health hazard and lead to high electricity bills. A roofer can install new vents or replace those that have failed to ensure your roof is adequately ventilated. If the mould isn’t due to poor ventilation, a roofing expert can help you get to the root of the problem and correct it.


3.     Wear and tear

It’s normal for your roof to have gradual wear and tear over time. However, some roofs deteriorate prematurely. Keeping up with regular maintenance and making minor fixes, such as replacing worn shingles, can help extend the life of your roof.


4.     Missing shingles

Strong winds combined with damaged sealant can cause the shingles on your roof to fall off. This problem can often be solved by replacing the missing shingles. However, if your roof loses shingles every time there’s inclement weather, the issue could be due to incorrect installation or defective shingles. It’s best to have a professional inspect your roof, assess the situation and determine the appropriate course of action.
