Reparing or replace a roof, in Drummondville

Do you need to repair your roof or re-roof? Is it even time to ask yourself this question? This article is intended to guide you in such a reflection. ​

Assess the damage

What is the first step? The first step is to assess the extent of the damage. How do you do this? It involves identifying areas of your roof that are worn or broken. How much of it is affected now? Are we talking about almost the entire surface or a few localized areas of breakage scattered here and there? Finally, what is the cause of this deterioration? These are the questions to ask yourself.

Don’t wait for problem to arise before taking action

Don’t wait until the last minute to have your roof repaired or redone. For example, if you wait until water infiltration alerts you, the costs will be much higher than if you do it before it happens. Prevention is always better than an afterthought. Judging when to act, however, is not as obvious as one would like it to be. And should it be repaired or redone? This is another difficult aspect to gauge. At Toiture Drummondville, we have the know-how to inspect the situation and give you the right answer. Our quotes are free, so take advantage of them! Our master roofer will give you useful advice to help you make an informed decision. ​

Roof repair: When is it a good option?

One-off damage
A roof is repaired when specific circumstances occur. For example, a branch that damaged some asphalt shingles or strong winds that tore off some of them… In other words, you repair instead of re-roofing when only a few sections are damaged due to a momentary incident.

Be aware of one situation in particular: if you have to repair the same area several times, a more serious problem could be lurking underneath these benign exteriors. You can ask Toiture Drummondville to inspect the condition of your roof and we will give you a free evaluation of the work to be done, as well as the extent of it.
Too late or too early in the season to install a new roof
In Quebec, the weather is variable. This presents a real challenge when it comes to roof installation. However, it’s not a good time to do it in winter or early spring. The weather is not on our side. Except that some breakages or infiltrations do not always wait for the ideal period to appear. Therefore, if needed, emergency repairs can be done out of season until the right time comes.
Repair for financial reasons
Replacing a roof is not necessarily possible for every budget at the time of need. When it is due but financial resources are not available, it is better to repair minimally to postpone the moment of redoing everything than to only wait.


Sometimes a complete re-roofing is the right choice. How can you tell when it’s time to contact us, Toiture Drummonville, your professional roofer? The following will give you some clues on this subject. 

Shingles frequently found on the ground
If asphalt shingle tear-offs occur on a regular basis, you may seriously suspect that the time for a resurfacing has arrived. But if it takes a storm or high winds for this to happen, it doesn’t automatically mean that a re-shingling is required. So frequency is an important factor.

Bent asphalt shingles
If your asphalt shingles start to curl, you should have your roof inspected by calling us at 819-803-7905. We will evaluate the situation and give you our usual free estimate of the work to planned.

Cracked seal
If you were not the first owner of your home, you may have no idea when the roof was last re-roofed, especially if you don’t even know the year it was built. In this case, your attention should be focused on the sealants. These are the best indicators of the level of wear and tear. Look at them around the chimney or flashings, and other areas… When the asphalt plastic cement is cracked, it may be time to redo it.

Stains, mold and other organic matter
If you see mold, stains or other organic material on your roof, it is strongly recommended that you contact your master roofer. As usual, we will do a reconnaissance examination at no charge to tell you what the problem is and how much it would cost.

Installing a new roof to help sell your home

A new buyer wants as much turnkey as possible. They don’t want to have to re-roof shortly after making such a large investment. They will look first at offers that will help them avoid it. So, if you want to sell and your roof is in need of repair, invest in this necessity to put all the chances on your side by increasing the value of your property in the eyes of prospects.
