Before you get a roof repair offer, an estimate or neighbour opinion check it by yourself. Those easy steps will provide you with an updated stat on your property attic condition.


Gaining access: make sure you are dressed properly and have a flashlight.Spring roofing Check the home interior, the majority of homes have interior access doors or hatches that lead to the attic.

Checking for roof leaks: the best time to check for roof leaks is during or just after a rainstorm or after the snow melt.

Existing insulation: the good condition can be described as evenly distributed and dry.

Air leaks: the condense air from a warm house go up and cause the moisture.

Vapour barriers (polyethylene): The walls are lined with heavy concrete blocks and separated from the rest of the building by a vapour barrier, so minimizing changes in temperature and humidity. The vapour barrier will probably be either a layer of kraft or waxed paper or, polyethylene.

Ventilation: Vents should be evenly distributed to give good cross-ventilation in four directions.
