Residential Roof Repairs
As a homeowner in Greater Vancouver and Lower Mainland, you have many responsibilities when it comes to the upkeep of your property. Some people like to focus on their home’s exterior because it adds curb appeal; others focus on internal updates to keep their home looking fresh. In general, homeowners tend to neglect their roofs.
If your roof is not maintained, it can start to show signs of damage and can even start to leak. There is no specific date or time limit on when you should perform residential roof repairs. Some homeowners choose to wait until they notice a leak before scheduling a repair. Others have their roofs regularly inspected and maintained to avoid leaks.
Your roof is a very important component of your home. It keeps the rain, wind, and snow out. A damaged roof should be repaired quickly to ensure further damage doesn’t occur.
Our Residential Roof Repairs include:
Are Residential Roof Repairs Necessary?
Any roof repair is important, but determining whether the damage has put your home in an emergency situation is imperative. A good rule of thumb is that if the plywood under your shingles is exposed, a roofing contractor should be contacted as soon as possible. Other emergency situations that will require immediate attention are ones that pose a safety threat to your living environment.
As always, use your best discretion when handling roofing situations. It is always better to call a roofer sooner rather than later.

Residential Roof Maintenance
Your home is likely one of the largest investments you will make in a lifetime. Your roof is the most vital component of that investment. Like any valuable asset, your roof should be maintained in order to maximize it’s useful like and minimize repair costs.
The key to extending the life of your roof is scheduled preventative maintenance. It can help protect your home from adverse weather conditions and harsh elements and can potentially save you thousands of dollars on repairs and replacement services over the years. Did you know that poor maintenance is one of the leading causes of premature roof failure?
Whether your roof is brand new or nearing its life expectancy, residential roof maintenance can provide many long-term benefits. We recommend for you to have roof maintenance performed once a year. If your home is located near trees, you should consider two cleanings per year.
Residential Roof Maintenance Schedule
Our professional team of residential roof maintenance experts will conduct a visual inspection and perform scheduled maintenance. During the inspection, we will look for any obvious signs of damage, such as missing shingles. We will also carefully look at components, like flashings, roof fixtures, the overall roof integrity, and other factors that can be early warning signs of existing or future problems.

Emergency Roof Repairs
No matter how impervious you think your roof is, it is not indestructible. Emergencies can happen suddenly and without notice. They can be caused by unexpected natural disasters and other circumstances that are out of our control.
Roofs are a vulnerable part of a building when a natural disaster occurs. If the roof sustains damage from strong winds, hail, snow etc., it’s important to take action immediately and take decisive steps to protect yourself and the building you are in.
We provide Emergency Roof Repairs Services for:
What Should you do in an Emergency Situation?
If you find yourself in an emergency situation, it’s better to wait until the natural disaster is over before addressing the damage. Performing repairs while the weather is unstable is dangerous and can cause additional issues. Objects on the roof that are made out of metal can attract lightning; winds can be so strong that they sweep people off buildings.
Before performing emergency roof repairs, it is necessary to conduct a thorough inspection to detect all of the damage and evaluate the needed repairs. This should be done during daylight hours in a stable environment.
Next Steps: Emergency Roof Repairs
Depending on the damage, your roof may require a small repair or an entire roof replacement. If the weather is still unstable, it’s possible to employ the following steps as a way to reduce the damage.
Locate the Leak
If the water continues to enter the building, it can cause serious structural damage. Try to locate the source of the leak and try to control the water that is entering. If your roof covering is over a layer of plywood, then keep in mind that water will generally travel from the entry point to the nearest joint, depending on how your roof slopes.
Minimize Interior Damage
A leak will pool at the ceiling until it finds a penetration point. This is usually a light fixture or a heat register. To minimize the damage, find the wettest area in the ceiling and poke a small hole in the middle. Then, use a bucket to collect the draining water.
Maintain the Situation until Help Arrives
Once you have located the point of entry, you can perform a temporary roof repair. This will include using roofing cement, roofing tape or a tarp.
These steps will help prevent further damage to your home until a professional Vancouver and Lower Mainland Roofing Contractor arrives.
Do you need Emergency Roof Repairs in Vancouver and Lower Mainland?
It’s no secret that we receive a tremendous amount of rain in Greater Vancouver and Lower Mainland. Our homes shed this water from the roof through the gutter system which controls the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation, and landscape. Gutters are an integral part of your home’s well-being. Uncontrolled rainwater from your roof can damage your foundation, create a wet basement, cause sliding and wood to rot and encourage interior mold and mildew growth. On your lawn, pooled rainwater can drown your landscaping, breed mosquitos, and prevent you from enjoying your backyard.
At Macbeth Roofing, we understand that your home needs the appropriate system of gutters and downspouts to properly achieve this process.
There are two types of gutter systems:
Homeowners and architects love the appearance of hidden/built-in gutters as they aren’t visible when looking at the home’s exterior.
Another popular choice for homeowners is continuous aluminum gutters. They are attached to the exterior fascia and can be painted to compliment the exterior colours of your home.
Should you hire someone to clean and maintain your gutter systems?
All gutter systems require proper maintenance and regular cleaning. Gutter systems that have been neglected will hold accumulated debris and standing water. The build-up of debris and water can be extremely heavy and can damage the angle of the gutter, known as the pitch. If this pitch is lost due to excess weight, then standing water can back up into the home or overflow into the home’s foundation.
Our qualified roofers can provide the necessary maintenance and repairs to extend the life of your gutter system. We would be pleased to provide you with a Free Consultation to discuss your gutter system options.
