Without access to Calgary AB roofers with in-depth experience and knowledge about your roof, it’s challenging to learn whether your roof will make it throughout the quarantine period. However, if your roof looks like it’s in good shape when you observe it from the outside, it most likely is. If you’re experiencing these three during your quarantine period, you can worry less about your roof.
You’ve Recently Had Roofers Inspect and Perform Maintenance
Roofing maintenance is essential for all types of roofs. Metal roofs might be the most durable and capable, but it requires proper detail-oriented observations and minor repairs to extend its lifespan too. If you’ve recently had an inspection and roofers addressed areas of concern, you won’t need to worry about your roof’s condition for years.
No Leaks and Strange Air Draft Sources
Roof leaks during summer storms are the clearest signals you need to have roof repairs soon. Furthermore, faint and strange air drafts indicate a compromise in your property insulation. While it’s not exclusively due to your roof, it’s most likely the source of your insulation problems.
Your Roof Is Less Than 15 Years Old
The roof will outlast the quarantine period if it is less than two decades old. Your roof can provide you excellent roofing throughout the quarantine period. In truth, roofs more than 10 years old are likely to show problematic signs, but these are most apparent with those beyond 15 years of age.

#1 Several Missing or Loose Shingles
Having one or two loose or missing shingles happens on occasion, especially if your roof is a more than few years old. A quick replacement of the shingles and the problem is solved. However, if your roof has several missing or loose shingles, or if you have had to replace several in the past, you may have a bigger problem.
Missing and broken shingles leave your roof vulnerable to rain, snow, and ice. When the water starts to take hold, the roof deck starts to deteriorate, which can loosen nails on other shingles, causing them to become loose. If not corrected early, the problem can continue to spread.
#2 Curling, Cracking, Blistering Shingles
Asphalt shingles arrive from the factory flexible, yet solid. However, time and the elements take their toll. Eventually, the shingle underlayment starts to dry out and deteriorate. This is when you start to see the edges of the shingle curl up. You may see cracking at various points. These are early signs your roof is starting to fail.
Blistering happens with humidity levels get too high around the shingle. This most often occurs when moisture builds up in the attic in hot humid conditions. The hot sun above and the moisture below cause the shingle surface to bubble up. It’s a sign of inadequate attic ventilation, a major cause of early roof failure. (Continued)
