If you own a home or business, you might have questions about roofing maintenance. If you’re concerned about your roof, don’t wait until it’s leaking to get it repaired. Dwight’s Roofing serves the greater Edmonton area and we are happy to answer all your roof-related questions.
Dwight’s Roofing employees are experienced professionals who adhere to strict safety policies and work year-round. We carry a liability insurance policy to ensure that our customers are protected in the case of an accident, and every employee is covered by WCB insurance.
Hiring a company or individual not covered by insurance is a high risk, and you and your insurance company are liable if an accident happens on your property.
Why is underlayment important?
Underlay acts as a buffer between the shingles and the roof deck – it is your roof’s back-up protection in the event of wind-driven rain, or torn or broken shingles during a storm. It also provides protection from ice damming’s negative effects in the winter.
Dwight began roofing in Edmonton as his own crew in 1976 and established Dwight’s Roofing back in 1987. We have had happy repeat customers tell us, “You shingled my home after the tornado, and we want you to put our next one on.”
What are some of the warranties Dwight’s Roofing provides?
Because of how long Dwight’s name has been in the Edmonton roofing business, our warranties are truly valuable. We stand behind our workmanship warranties 100%.
Ice dams occur when melting snow continually thaws and refreezes. As snow on the roof melts, water runs under the existing snow and refreezes at the bottom edge of the roof. This process repeats, forming pools of water against the built-up ice dams and refreezing, growing into larger chunks of ice. The ice works its way up under the shingles on your roof deck, and eventually leaks into your house. The main cause of ice dams is heat escaping from your home. Insufficient attic insulation allows the heated air of the attic to escape and reach the underside of the roof deck creating condensation, and inadequate attic ventilation or not enough ventilation prevents moisture from escaping from your attic. Here are some ways prevent ice damming on your roof:
Why is ventilation an important factor when installing my roof
Ventilation is a crucial factor in the life of your roof. Built-up heat in your home during the summer and cold weather such as rain and snow in the winter will accelerate the aging process of your shingles. Proper air circulation, regardless of outside temperatures, will greatly reduce the chances of your roof leaking due to the roof deck curling, blistering, and rotting, or wet insulation.
We believe an educated customer is our best customer.
