I notice the presence of mould and other signs of water infiltration. My team and I will replace defective surfaces by removing part – or even, if necessary, all – of the roof covering.Roof Waterproofing System
It is also possible that the leaks have damaged the structure of your roof. The type of intervention required may involve replacing some of the plywood sections. That way, the roof will provide a solid and level surface upon which to install the brand new shingles!Structure and Decking
How can you prevent ice from accumulating on my roof?
My team and I will make sure that the attic is properly insulated to prevent the transfer of heat between it and the house. That will help to prevent the snow from melting and infiltrating the house. To that end, we will install a firewall and replace the existing insulation with more efficient products.Roof Insulation
After replacing the plywood, I will need to prepare the surface by applying the drip caps! That is what prevents water from dripping down your walls.
A self-adhesive membrane should then be placed at the base of the roof, to keep it intact in case ice forms.
Do you know about vapour barrier underlayment? It creates a perfect shield against moisture.Roof Waterproofing System
To not freeeeeze in the winter or meltttt in the summer, your system must allow air to circulate so as to keep the attic as close as possible to the temperature outdoors. I will take apart the cornices if necessary and install a more powerful fan.Roof Ventilation
