Why is Roof Maintenance Important?

Roof systems in Ontario are under substantial stress from heat, UV rays, high winds and freezing temperatures. Roof systems are constantly expanding and contracting from heat and cold, such movement in the roof system will cause it to weaken over time causing splits and cracks. In a climate such as ours, it is important to protect and to monitor the roof system from exposure to these elements and proactively repair them to prevent interior damage.

Key Benefits of Proactive Roof Maintenance

A proactive commercial and multi-unit residential* roof maintenance program is simply a program of scheduled inspections and corrective actions. The following four factors identify the benefits of initiating a proactive roof maintenance program:

  1. To extend and maximize the service life of the roofing system through regular assessments and proactive maintenance.
  2. To take proactive measures to help detect minor problems before major damage is widespread and repair costs add up.
  3. To maintain the validity of the warranties and guarantees. Even a brand new roof requires regular maintenance to keep it functioning as intended. Without regular maintenance many warranties and roof guarantees become void.
  4. To maintain and/or increase property value.

At Detail Roofing, we have developed a Preventative Roof Maintenance Program that currently ensures our customers buildings are covered 100% throughout the year. To date, we are the largest roof maintenance provider in the GTA . All you have to do is sign up for the program and we take care of the rest.

Roof leaks happen at all times of day or night.  If there’s water coming into a unit  it is an emergency.  Luckily Detail Roofing has roofing technicians available 24/7.

Is the Roof Leak an Emergency?

If the roof is actively leaking it is an emergency. You should not allow a leak to continue for the following reasons:

  • The water is breaking down the wood fibers and causing rot and decay.
  • This decay leads to mold growth.
  • The mold spores get in the air and cause respiratory problems for the residents.
  • Water continues to spread above the ceiling into ventilation leading to more interior damage.
  • Water come into contact with the electrical wiring and could cause a fire.
  • The source of the leak will get weaker allowing water in at a faster rate. The additional pressure will cause more damage.
  • Carpets, floors, furniture and other contents will be damaged.
  • The building structure will be damaged.

All of these consequences will end up costing more than simply getting the roof leak repaired as soon as possible.

Detail Roofing is available to make repairs day or night, 365 days a year so there is no sense in waiting and allowing damage to continue.

Is the Leak Coming From the Roof?

You know there’s an active leak but aren’t sure if it’s coming from the roof or plumbing pipes.  How can you tell?  Who should you call? Locating a water leak is not an easy task.  The important thing is to not wait.  Even if you’re not sure it’s best to call someone.  The worst that can happen is one contractor comes to the location and identifies that it is not a leak they can deal with and you’ll have to try the other contractor.  At least you’re one step closer to getting it fixed and mitigating the damage.

Chances are it’s a roof leak if:

  • It has rained or snowed recently.
  • Gutters have not been cleaned lately.
  • The ventilation system is not working well.
  • There is noticeable damage to shingles or soffit.
  • There are or were icicles hanging off the roof.
  • There have been major weather events lately. (high winds causing flying debris)


When a call that comes in at night because a roof in a townhouse complex is leaking and water is entering the unit be sure to call Detail Roofing for a quick repair.


Our professionally trained technicians and crews are available 24 hours a day to repair your roof system.
