Article Summary: 

The most important details in this text are the six common roofing problems to watch out for this winter in Toronto, Ontario. These problems include ice damming, blow-offs, tenting, and billowing. To prevent ice damming, ensure proper ventilation, insulation, and underlayment. Blow-offs, tenting, and billowing can occur if the roof is not properly adhered to, or if it was installed incorrectly. Poor installation or workmanship can also increase the likelihood of future commercial roofing problems, reducing the roofing system’s life expectancy altogether.

Ask your contractor for a checklist specific to the roof system, such as licenses, insurance policies, and safety procedures. Have your contractor provide a written inspection report with digital photos and infrared scans. Limit foot traffic and seek a professional roofing inspection after tradespeople have been on the roof. Conduct visual inspections and thorough roofing inspections by a professional roofing contractor. Ask your Toronto-area commercial roofing contractor if they are certified by the manufacturer to repair your commercial flat roof this winter.
