Roof Maintenance in Vancouver’s Rainy Season

Heavy City RainRegular roof maintenance is necessary for Vancouver business or property owners to get through the rainy season unscathed.

Roof leaks are the most common problem in the rainy season. It doesn’t take much to cause just one leak, but it can lead to all kinds of costly problems like ruined ceilings, moisture in the walls, wood rot and
mould and overall damage to a property’s interior.

Trust roof maintenance experts to find leaks and repair them quickly.
