Your to-do list ramps up in the fall in Canada. Here in snowy London ON, there are a few must-do projects like removing leaves from your eavestroughs and downspouts before they freeze in place. If your facia boards and eavestroughs are older, call a roofing contractor to assess their useful life.Armour Shield Roofing strongly discourages homeowners from going up and down ladders or doing repairs on their roofs. The accidents and fatalities sustained by untrained individuals are tragic and avoidable by calling a professional roofing contractor. Your eavestroughs are an essential part of your home. They divert water away from your home through downspouts helping prevent problems like flooding, structural damage, mould growth, and flooding on your property. All of this can be a substantial cost to deal with. Prevention is almost always more affordable than necessary roofing repairs. Armour Shield Roofing has provided London Ontario and the surrounding area with exceptional 5 Star service since 1996. We certify and train our employees professionally for all roofing projects.
