Emergency Roof Repairs in the GTA During the Winter

Expert 24-Hour Emergency Roof Repair Services for Toronto and GTA Residents

Broken Gutter After StormThe arrival of winter requires residents of Toronto to make some adjustments in lifestyle, albeit temporarily, in order to deal with anticipated accumulations of snow and sub-zero temperatures. Digging out their winter clothing from storage and ensuring that they are prepared for digging out their driveways are just two of the preparatory steps that need to be taken.

However, while they can prepare for winter’s inclement conditions on the whole, Toronto and area residents cannot anticipate the specific types of weather they might encounter, nor when those wintry elements will hit the region; high winds, ice storms, heavy snows, and freeze-and-thaw cycles can all be a part of the winter weather landscape in the GTA.

And, in the same way that these types of conditions can catch local residents off-guard, they can play havoc with the roofs of their homes and businesses, perhaps leading to the need for emergency roof repair service.  Often, it is the signs of a leak/water penetration that stimulate the calls for these services e.g.: stained ceilings, moisture on walls/floors, or water collecting in light fixtures, but the source of any such situations throughout the winter season can be attributed to a variety of factors, including but not limited to:

  • Missing shingles
  • Ice dam formations
  • Blocked gutters or vents
  • Insufficient attic insulation
  • Inadequate attic ventilation
  • Damage from fallen branches
  • Loose, missing, cracked caulking
  • Damage to the chimney or masonry

At the first signs of a leak or other roof damage during the winter, it will be important to have the matter addressed as quickly as possible in order to prevent more extensive and hence more expensive damage to the home and property. Although these can be rather unfortunate circumstances, Toronto homeowners have the capability to react quickly by calling on the 24-hour emergency roof repair services provided by Avenue Road Roofing.

  • Evaluate the extent of the damage
  • Determine/recommend the right solution
  • Prepare a cost estimate for the repair work
