A homeowner must keep their roof in a good state of repair

Taking Care of Your Roofing Needs in Ottawa

Bad weather conditions; long winters and excessive winds have come to terms with your roofing system.  Don’t wait too long before insuring the replacement of your roofing surface. This concern has to be at the top of your list.  You have to look at this from an investment point of view and not just an expense.


Unfortunately we often wait too long and end up dealing with this situation in an urgent manner, after a rainstorm or hailstorm.  Panic starts to set in when water comes in from the chimney or the ceiling. The worst is probably happening in the attic – mold or rot.

Water infiltration will cause disaster to your home, goods and personal belongings.  This will add a significant cost to your loss, not forgetting that you will have to repair your ceilings, perhaps your wood floors, insulation, etc…

For these reasons, you have to invest in your roof in order to limit your damages and liable expense.  Call upon Kaloozie Comforts’ roofing team in Ottawa to solve your roofing problems and concerns. 

Do I need a new Roof?

Normally due to the long-term effects of weathering, sooner or later, every roof needs replacing.  If your roof is more than 15 years old, it’s a prime candidate.

Check it out:  On the ground, walk around your home and inspect your roof for cracked, curled or missing shingles, broken edges and any excessive loss of the protective mineral granules.  DO NOT CLIMB ON THE ROOF – walking on the roof is dangerous and can damage it.

In your attic, take a flashlight and look at the underside of the roof and rafters for any stains or wet spots indicating water leaks. If you require an expert’s eye, give us a call and we’ll have someone from our team take a look!

A homeowner MUST keep their roof in a good state of repair. The most obvious is curling shingles.

At this point, most insurance companies will no longer honor damage caused by a leaky roof, but instead will refer to the maintenance clause of the insurance policy.
