“Keeping your Home maintenance free”
Most homeowners take great care and pride ensuring their biggest investment is maintained by keeping gardens tidy, timberwork and metal painted, pest control up to date, windows cleaned and of course not to mention day to day internal maintenance.
The roof is also an important area of a home but often gets neglected mainly because it is difficult to reach and requires specialized knowledge. Roof maintenance, or postponement of it, is usually justified with the “It doesn’t leak” syndrome. A regular check-up by a licensed roofing company can put ones mind at rest rather than discovering a problem in the middle of a downpour.
Common problems with most roofs can be readily repaired by a qualified tradesperson. Areas at risk include cracked, loose or missing mortar that is no longer bonding the ridge capping to the tiles, broken or fractured tiles and sometimes tiles that have become dislodged, damaged flashings and rusted valleys. These areas will suddenly create leaks that have been waiting for their chance to betray the plaster ceilings they have faithfully protected for years.
Time for a new roof or can it be restored?
This is a common question homeowners ask when they notice their roof is looking old and realize roof maintenance for their most important asset cannot be put off any longer.
There have been numerous myths circulated over the years about roof tiles becoming weak and brittle and the needing to be replaced. While this may be true for some early types of poorly made tiles, most tiled roofs if maintained will last for many generations. However, even though tile manufacturers will guarantee the performance of the tiles, this does not mean your roof is free of maintenance.
Let’s face it; your roof is one of the most demanding components of your home. It not only protects your home from the weather and environmental elements but it has a major impact on the look, feel and value of your home.
There is also a lot of confusion about painting roofs when the roof starts to discolour and attract fungal growths.
It’s pointless painting a roof just to make it look nice. A specialised roofing membrane “system” needs to be applied to properly restore the roof. When common paint is used it may look okay for a while but it will eventually need to be redone at an additional cost.
Restoration is the total process of returning a roof to its original or similar new condition. This avoids the waste and unnecessary expense of removal and replacement. Restoration encompasses all the necessary repairs, cleaning, sealing and re-coating for beautification and waterproofing. As each roof is different and will have varied requirements, a simple inspection by a professional can determine the appropriate treatment and process for your roof.
