When to redo your residential roof?
The best time to redo a residential roof is summer. It is during this period that the climatic conditions are favorable for freely carrying out repair work.

- Once every 10 years: if the roof is less than 10 years old;
- Once every 2 years: if the roof is less than 20 years old;
- Annually: if the roof is over 40 years old.

Evaluate the general structure of the roof
A roofer can undertake a roof diagnostic to determine the presence of anomalies, including breaks or installation faults. A repair is necessary when these problems are perceived at the level of the frame, shingles, under-roof or ridge.

What materials to choose to redo your residential roof?
The role of a roof is to protect a building, but also to provide the comfort that tenants need. It is therefore necessary to choose the material carefully to obtain the desired effect.
Here are the different options available to you:
- The elastomeric membrane: popular for its ease of installation, regardless of the season. It is resistant and has a high level of waterproofing. Its disadvantage lies in its installation exposing the risk of fire.
- Plants: they block the ultraviolet rays responsible for the deterioration of the roof. They have good acoustic and thermal performance, but require a lot of maintenance.
- Steel: it is fully recyclable. It is low maintenance and good value for money.
- The asphalt shingle: An asphalt shingle roof can withstand strong winds of up to 100 km / h. Some materials have the ability to reflect the sun’s rays to keep the attic cool.
- Slate: this coating has the advantage of not fading under the action of sunlight. His condition remains virtually the same, regardless of the effect of the ultraviolet rays. It is also resistant to frost, bad weather and acid rain. Its drawback is its significant weight and its fragile nature during installation.
