During this critical situation, the Best Top Roofing team worked very hard to fulfill all roof-related emergency repair calls. We served over 100s of roof repair calls within that week. Strong winds and snowfall damaged many roofs and lead to leaks.

Full guide for property owner after the storm hit their property

Tips for every home or business owner should follow after the storm hit their property:

  • After the storm has passed through, go outside and estimate the possible roof damage.
  • Keep your roof in good condition, because even a small leak causes a big problem for you and your roof in the future.
  • The major dangers of the storm are debris falling on the roof and deterioration of your shingles. This will damage the roof. Due to the high force of the wind, shingles can be lifted, come off, get punctured and leave an open spot for leaks.
  • As roof damage from wind storms isn’t always obvious, especially in the case of missing flashing in the crevices in your roof, it’s important to do a thorough inspection after strong winds in your area.
  • Performing a thorough inspection after a hail storm/wind or snow strom and knowing what to do after a damage has occured can help you avoid the common pitfalls that come along with various strom /hail roof damage.
  • Mold, rot, leaks and structural damage are all signs of rain damage and indicators that your roof may need to be replaced.

Roof damage identification might look like:

  1. Shingle condition: Missing shingle is sure sign of roof damage. But, also pay attention to the granule buildup on shingles for early signs of damage.
  2. Missing flashing: Check the edges of the roof and skylights, vents and chimneys.
  3. Loose or pealing sealant along those same penetration points.
  4. Water damage in the attic or along the ceiling.
  5. Granules deposit in eavtroughs.

Sometimes signs of damage are not that simple that a non-roofing expert can identify it. It is always a good idea to call a professional roofing expert to inspect the roof after a storm hit.


About Roof warranty and its coverage

When a new roof is purchased, it comes with its own warranty. But all roof warranties are not the same. In fact, many homeowners learn the hard way that most roof warranties only cover the cost of materials or just manufacturer or installation defects not weather-related issues. Whether you or your insurance provider will cover the damages, it is always best to work with experienced professional roofers through each step of the respective roof repairs or replacements. Emergency roof repairs can be major processes and should always be handled by a skilled roofing contractor. We are professional roofers in Edmonton, working diligently to make sure that clients are completely satisfied, from the initial inspection to the finishing touches of the repairs. We are available 24/7 to inspect, repair and or replace your damaged roof. (In emergency only)

Our dedicated team repaired 100s of roofs and received many thumbs up and reviews during this storm strike in Edmonton in January. We were able to reach out and conduct all the roof repairs within 48 hours of the call.

We are happy to publish some of the reviews here.

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value During our most recent windstorm, my roof was damaged as the shingles were lifting and I wasn't sure the extent of the damage. I called them and the same day, I had someone at my home to complete the roof inspection. They assessed the damage and took pictures for me before completing the work. Prices were extremely reasonable and they took all forms of payments, which I appreciated. Everything was done electronically, which I also appreciated - the pictures of the damages and the repairs were sent to my cell phone and the invoice was sent to my email. The owner, Harry communicated with me throughout the day as well to let me know when the roofers would be arriving and when they were done the work. You also get 5 years warranty on workmanship. I HIGHLY recommend this company.

Positive: Punctuality, Responsiveness, Value Called Best Top Roofing earlier today to get a roof repair estimate for damaged/missing shingles from the recent snow squall. After briefly discussing the damage with Harry (the owner), he noted he had crews working in my area and if they couldn't get to my place today, they could come tomorrow which was earlier than anticipated. To my surprise, Harry contacted me a little over 2 hours later saying his roofer was on the way. The roofing crew were pleasant, quick and efficient. Overall a good experience.

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Fabulous job! I called a few days after a wind storm blew some of my shingles off the roof. There happened to be a technician in the area who could come out the same day. The technician was polite, clean, took before, during, and after photos and sent them to my cell phone for my records, and took all of the debris and broken shingles with him when he left. It took him about an hour. Payment was made to Harry the owner, not the technician so I didn''t have to have any contact with anyone Payment was easy and could be done several different ways. The roof looks like nothing ever happened. Very pleased and would recommend this company for roof repairs!
