Each spring as the snow melts and the temperatures creep up slowly we begin to receive calls from homeowners saying their roof is leaking. Upon inspection of the roof we find no possible point of entry from above the roof deck. The next place we check is the attic and upon closer inspection we often find frost buildup along gable walls or between the rafters of the roof.  As the temperature outside rises so to does the temperature inside the attic and as a result the excess frost begins to melt and if there is enough, can create damage to a dry walled ceiling or wall.

Why does the frost accumulate in the first place? There can be a variety of factors but they almost always boil down to two problems:

1) Inadequate moisture barrier and/or insulation.

2) Inadequate ventilation of the attic space.

The problems of the poor moisture barrier are most often solved by removal of the ceiling and a reinstallation of a new, proper barrier. This is not always practical and the problem can be alleviated by an increase in ventilation. The ventilation of an attic space is critical in removing the warm moist air escaping from the living spaces before it has the opportunity to freeze along the surfaces inside the attic.

If you are experiencing condensation issues throughout the winter or suspect you may have inadequate venting, feel free to contact us for an assessment and we will do our best to eliminate the problem.

2014 Roofing Season for Saskatoon

posted by Ireland Roofing    |   February 13, 2014 14:50

With spring fast approaching, many homeowners will be considering some type of renovation to their property. If a new roof is on your 'to do' list, now is the best time to secure your Saskatoon roofing contractor.

As they say “ the early bird gets the worm” and many of the top quality contractors will be fully booked by June. So stay ahead of the rush by getting on a contractor's estimate list early in the year. We can begin providing detailed estimates as soon as the snow is off the roof. The optimum time to have shingles installed is between the beginning of May up until the end of September. This allows the shingles to adhere properly without any interference from dust and other debris, which can weaken the seals before they are fully bonded.

Contact Ireland Roofing Ltd. today to request an estimate.
