Winter Roof Leaks
When your roof appears to be leaking in the middle of winter, it is probably not an actual leak, but a ventilation issue. With temperatures fluctuating as much as they do in this province, a lot of condensation can build up in your attic, which results in moisture penetrations. We can help with a ventilation inspection and assessment. Often a few extra vents can solve this problem. For more information about ventilation in your attic, read this article from the CMHC.
