Vancouver Residential Roofing

Local Re-Roofing

Your roof will last you a variable amount of time based on several different factors, but ideally, you will only have to fix or replace it once during the ownership of your house. 

To help ensure that your roof lasts for years to come, you will want to hire the right roofers, but how do you know that you are hiring the right company?

When it comes to Vancouver residential roofing, there are a few tips to help you make your decision.

  • Go Local. In addition to helping local businesses, which is always nice, going local means you are dealing with a company well-versed in the rules and regulations that are pertinent to you. They will also likely have relationships with local suppliers and work crews, and if they have been working in your community for some time, they are more likely to be legitimate and reliable.
  • Verify Their Credentials. Even if you are going with an established local company, you should still do your research. This is true of any business that you will be entrusting with a significant project. You can check that they have the applicable required business license, and ask for proof of insurance, including liability coverage and worker’s compensation. All employees and/ or subcontractors should be covered. Not having adequate insurance could lead to issues for you in the event of injuries or other issues arising during the work.
  • Check Their Better Business Bureau (BBB) Always check that the company has a good score on the BBB and avoid any that you can’t find on BBB.org. Contractors can only retain their certification by maintaining a satisfactory rating.
  • Get a Written Description of the Work Being Done. You should have a written description of all the work to be done before you agree to work with any contractor. They should provide you not only details about the work itself, but also the estimated time and costs that will be involved.
  • Check Referrals and Reviews. Checking the company’s website to see their customer testimonials is standard and can be useful but remember that companies decide what they will post on their own sites so you may want to visit third-party websites to see other reviews. By researching the experiences of others, you will have an idea of what to expect for yourself.
  • The Work Should be Guaranteed. Any work that you have done by a roofing contractor should come with a guarantee for at least a year and must be in writing. It should also give details of what will happen should the guarantee not be met.

Your home is likely going to be the biggest investment you ever make, and the roof is a vital component. Don’t trust your investment to just anybody. When looking to fix or replace your roof, you want a roofer that demonstrates honesty, quality, and integrity. You want Komo Roofing. Contact us today to learn more and request a free estimate.

5 Common Roofing Problems in Vancouver BC

Vancouver’s summers can be a hot and beautiful place to be but as winter settles in, the shorter days can bring in a whole host of roofing issues. Here are five common issues we see happen to Vancouver and the surrounding lower mainland roofs.

Broken or Clogged gutters

As the days become shorter and the trees begin to change color there is one part of your roof that needs your close attention. These parts are your gutters. As trees begin to lose their leaves, they tend to have the habit of dropping some of their foliage on your roof. These ultimately end up sliding down your roof and fall into your gutters. With the sudden increase in rainy days, it is extremely easy to find your gutters clogged. Fall and winter storms can also cause damage to your gutters. Any broken gutters need to be fixed as soon as possible as a leaking or broken gutter can cause damage to other parts of your house such as your walls or possibly leak into your home.  

Moss

living in the Pacific Northwest there is an abundance of moss everywhere you go. It can be a beautiful thing but there is one place where it does not belong. And that is your roof! Moss on a roof can clog your gutters or in the worst case, damage your roof. It’s important to have the moss removed as soon as possible. There are many products in-store that can remove this moss. However, if accessing your roof is difficult it is best left with your roofing experts.  

Animals and pests

Vancouver has a whole host of little critters and bugs that love to call your home or roof their own. From woodpeckers that try and build their house in your walls to the mice that call your attic home, there is a large host of animals that want to utilize your roof as well. The issue with this is that they can cause damage to your roof and it does not take very much time at all for them to get to work on making holes or removing roofing material. Check for pests and birds and ensure that they are not damaging your roof.  

Neglection

Not looking after your roof or having it checked from time to time can cause premature wear and a whole load of issues to stack up ultimately resulting in the need for a roof replacement. If you are not able to see your roof it’s a good idea to hire a professional to check it if you think there could be damage or other issues. Leaving a roof replacement to the last moment can cause other costly damages to your home.  

Storms

BC’s rainy falls and winters can bring in heavy winds and sometimes even heavy snowfalls. A storm can cause havoc on your roof by sending tree branches and other objects hurtling. Large branches and objects can break off shingles or remove objects likes vents from your room. These will ultimately end up causing water ingress. It is best to have your roof inspected by professionals if you think there has been any damage done to your roof.
