When it comes to your roof, cutting corners to save a dime is rarely the best decision.
The money you save on a patch job will, more often than not, end up costing you much more in damage and repairs later on!
While there are people who suggest that laying new shingles over an existing roof is a less costly alternative, failing to completely tear-off and replace your roofing systems can cause a wide variety of problems.
Laying new shingles over old and damaged ones will not only cause the new shingles to age prematurely, but it will also add a great deal of excess weight to the roof!
Whether you have a Residential, Commercial or Industrial Property, it is very important to be well-informed before making any repair decisions.
At T. Simpson Roofing Ltd, our full-time service team is available 24/7 to address any emergency issues that may arise.
With our annually-trained staff, there are no projects too big or too small.
With 25+ years of experience, we have seen it all!
From animal damage and extreme weather to structural aging and mold – there are a variety of reasons your roof might need replacing. While this important household structure is often overlooked during routine maintenance procedures, there are a variety of telling signs that may indicate your roof’s impending expiry date:
Missing and/or distorted shingles are the easiest visual sign of a roofing problem.
As the damaged areas would be visible from outside of the home, it is no surprise that these areas would also become vulnerable to the environmental elements.
Although it is important to replace these curled/missing shingles to avoid the impact of wind and rain, it is also important to note that these air leaks may be contributing to high energy expenses.
Racoons, squirrels and other small animals are often known to chew small holes into our roofing systems
If left unnoticed, these holes can let in rain and snow without us even noticing! Avoid the risks of danger and damage by monitoring your roof for animal interference.
By scheduling a routine maintenance check, you can catch the warning signs before it is too late.
One of the more obvious signs? Your roof is leaking!
A helpful place to look when reviewing your current roofing situation is in the attic.
Take some time to climb up under the eaves and look around with a flashlight.
If there are any stains, streaks, water or light beams coming through the top of your house, you may have a leaky roof problem.
Try investigating your attic during the daytime so that the sunlight can help identify any problem areas (or if you’re brave, try looking for leaks while it’s raining!).
A typical asphalt shingle roof is expected to last anywhere between 20 and 30 years.
Keeping a detailed record of your home’s renovations and improvements can help you monitor how long it’s been between upgrades!
By keeping on top of these timelines, you can avoid any surprises and/or unnecessary repair costs.
This will also help you predict when you might be due for your next roof replacement and budget accordingly.
A sagging roof can be a clear indication of a structural issue.
As trapped moisture and/or rotting boards can weaken the strength of your roof, it is important to get on top of your roof replacement before mold becomes a bigger problem.
Take some time to investigate the exterior and interior of your roofing structure and take note of any changes.
As a Canadian Roofing Company, we understand that our energy bills can fluctuate from season to season.
We also understand that skyrocketing bills are sometimes caused by poor ventilation and insulation within the home!
If you are noticing that your energy bills are spiking (along with any of the warning signs above), it might be a sign that your roof is under-performing.
Although roofing bargains can be tempting, it is important to make sure that every installation is done to proper code. In fact, the money you might save on a patch job often ends up costing much more in damage, repairs, and even energy expenses!
By opting for a brand new roof with our professional installation team, you can forget about repairs for many years to come.
Aged, damaged and patched-up roofs lose a great deal of their original energy efficiency, which compromises their ability to regulate the temperature of your home. As this causes your heating and AC systems to work overtime, your energy bills might become much harder to manage!
A new roof with more modern venting works to improve your home’s overall energy efficiency and save you money in the long-run.
Although the main function of a roof is to protect us from the outside elements, it can also create a beautiful, fresh appearance that increases overall curb appeal!
With a wide variety of customizable options to choose from, you can create the home of your dreams at a fraction of the cost of most aluminum, clay and cedar roofing options.
A professional roof replacement can drastically increase the value of your home. When the time comes that you are ready to sell, this investment can play a major role in your selling potential!
Selling for a higher price can allow you and your family to make a bigger downpayment on your next property, which could be the house of your dreams!
While shortcuts in your roofing options may be tempting to your budget, the threat of a collapsed roof or injured family member is never worth the risk. With an honest and fair evaluation, our carefully-trained professionals are here to help you protect your loved ones with the safety precautions you deserve.

“FYI--the guys who came to our house were amazing. They were courteous and professional. They also cleaned the area they worked in above and beyond what we expected--they cleaned up part of a mess that had everything to do with my husband and nothing to do with the roof! Haha! Seriously--we were very happy with their work and would (will!) happily have them back in the future. Thanks!”
