24/7 emergency services for repairing your roof.

Roof Emergency

In Repentigny, as well as in Terrebonne and throughout Lanaudière, the roofers at TOITURES BENOIT DUBOIS offer roof emergency services, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are experiencing water infiltration or any other urgent problem, we can intervene quickly to keep your building watertight.

Quick intervention by our roofers

We will first conduct an inspection of your roofing and attic (or loft) of your house, business, or commercial building. This will allow us to determine the nature and severity of the problems to be addressed. We can advise you if minor repairs are sufficient or if it would be necessary to replace your entire shingle covering (advanced deterioration).

Our specialists will inspect all parts of your roof. They will check the condition of the shingles, the underlayment, the roof edges, as well as the sealing of elements protruding from the roof (fan, plumbing vent, chimney, kitchen hood, skylight). They will also inspect flashings, soffits, gutters, insulation, ventilation, etc. Our team of experienced roofers will explain in detail the elements that need to be repaired, sealed, added, or replaced. We will provide you with the precise cost of each repair. Then, with your agreement, we will carry out the necessary repairs. If we believe that your roofing material should be replaced entirely, we will explain the reasons for this.

Problems requiring emergency roof intervention

Here are some situations that require emergency roof intervention: your roofing material allows water infiltration (water stains on ceilings or walls, damp attic beams and insulation); brown condensation or mold stains are present on your ceilings; the humidity level is very high in your attic; asphalt shingles are curled, missing, cracked, or heavily deteriorated; your flashings are blocked by poorly distributed insulation; roof equipment is worn or coming loose; ice accumulates on the edges of your roof.

An accumulation of icicles around the roof may be picturesque, but this ice can cause serious problems to the fascia membrane and shingles. Often, the problem of ice buildup around the roof originates from poor attic or loft ventilation.

Replacing damaged shingles in certain areas is futile if the attic is poorly insulated and ventilated. Before repairing the roofing material, these issues must be addressed if necessary. If the beams, panels, or roof support boards (decking) show moisture rings, wood blackened by mold, or rusty nails, then these boards or panels will need to be replaced due to water infiltration.

Regarding attic insulation, it is necessary to check if the insulation covers the surfaces well, if the insulation factor (R-value) needs to be increased, if the attic access hatch is well insulated and sealed, if the insulation is damaged due to water infiltration, and if the insulation has shifted onto the soffits and prevents air from entering and exiting. It is also essential to ensure that a vapor barrier is properly installed on the ceiling, under the insulation.

All these factors indicate that you should promptly contact our team of roofers for a roof emergency.

Water Infiltration

Sloped roofs with torn, cracked, or curled shingles can allow water to enter if the underlying sealing membrane is also torn. Sometimes the owner may not notice the infiltration because the water first significantly damages the attic timber before reaching the interior ceilings and walls. Damage to the insulation is also considerable when water infiltrates for weeks without the problem being detected and resolved.

That's why we recommend that homeowners regularly visually inspect their roofing material to ensure that the shingles are in good condition. This will prevent problems such as mold, fungi, rotten timber, excessive attic humidity, stained and swollen ceilings, wet insulation, etc. Quick intervention (within 15 days of the start of infiltration) is sufficient to limit the negative effects of a major water leak.

Our Intervention

If the caulking joints around the roof fan and other elements on the roof (chimney, plumbing vent, etc.) are deteriorated, we will seal them.

We will check if the soffits are blocked by insulation, if the fan is doing its job or needs replacement, if the shingles need to be replaced in certain areas or entirely, if the sealing membrane is torn under the damaged shingles; if the soffits need to be changed, if flashings need to be installed, if Styrovent panels need to be installed, if the insulation and timber are wet after a water leak, etc.
