Is the roofing of your home starting to show signs of wear?

Roof renovations are one of the most expensive home investments. With Edmonton’s harsh winters, your roof must endure significant temperature changes. It is therefore strongly recommended to carefully choose the materials used, as well as the expert responsible for renovating your roof to avoid unpleasant surprises (bad insulation, cracks, material detachment, premature wear, etc.).

SmartReno connects you with the best Edmonton specialists so you can avoid entrusting your project to an inexperienced company or contractor. Start your project with total confidence.

4 things to consider for roof renovations in Edmonton

Whether by necessity or precaution, roof renovations are an essential part of home maintenance. If the work is done properly, a roof’s lifespan is about 20-25 years (or even longer according to some companies). A job well done, to us, means choosing the right materials and the right contractor.

Since these renovations are rather expensive, it is crucial to get good advice and choose a capable contractor. There are many roofing renovators in Edmonton but not all of them work in the same way or charge the same price.

Does your roof need to be repaired? To find out, you just need to be on the lookout for certain signs.

Missing shingles

With the harsh Edmonton winters, a few shingles can easily be blown away by the wind or heavy snowfall. Therefore, it’s prudent to check your roof regularly to make sure that no shingles are missing and that your home is well protected.

Worn shingles

In the same way that shingles go missing, your roof can be subjected to factors that weaken it over time. Bad weather accentuates and accelerates the deterioration of exposed shingles. If you notice ripples, cracks or other abnormalities, this is a sign that your roof will need renovations. It’s important to take precautions and act quickly, as water infiltration can happen fast.

Granule loss

Many Edmonton roofs are made of granulated shingles, known for their resistance and recommended in areas with tough winters. On the other hand, they aren’t immune to wear and should be checked regularly to prevent any water penetration that could cause serious damage to your home.

Flashings in poor condition

Skylights are very appealing and becoming more common in Edmonton. However, it can be one of the most fragile areas of your roof and it’s important to regularly check the condition of flashings around the windows.


Have you noticed one or more signs of roof deterioration? It may be time to consider a renovation. SmartReno can help you find experts quickly to give you the guidance you need.
