Signs You Need Your Roof Repaired
Australia is a beautiful country and Sydney, in particular, is a lovely city to live in. However, this does not mean the area is free from weather patterns and other environmental factors that can negatively impact roofs. When you encounter any of the following issues, it is time to call in the roof repair experts.
v and storms each year. Whether you have slate, tile, or colourbond roofing, moisture can make its way into your roof and beneath the seals. This can damage your roofing materials and then lead to leaks. If you notice water stains on your ceiling or if there is a noticeable leak, don’t let the issue fester. Have a professional inspect your roof right away and have the damage repaired pronto.
Moulds or Rotting
Apart from leaks, moisture can also cause some parts of your roof to rot. It will also make it a great environment for mould growth, which is unhealthy and can be dangerous for your family. The sad fact is that these issues won’t be readily apparent until the problem has become a big one. Therefore, it is best if you schedule roof repair specialists to inspect your roof regularly throughout the year. This way, they can spot any mould or rot issue early on and prevent it from exploding into expensive repairs..
Having trees around your property is certainly great for kerb appeal, but if overhanging tree branches are touching your roof – this could create a problem sooner or later. If left unattended, those branches (and fallen leaves) will get heavier and the load won’t be good for your roof. This could lead to broken tiles or warped metal roofing. Not only that, trees can transfer sap, seeds, and other oils that might damage your roofing materials.
Then, there is Australia’s wildlife. Having tree branches touching your roof means it will be easier for animals to access your roof. They might break the tiles or somehow burrow through. When any of these happen, request assistance from expert roofers right away. It is also best to have your trees trimmed in order to prevent further damage.
Other Roofing Issues
Aside from the above mentioned issues, other roof difficulties you might encounter involve poor insulation, low-quality gutter work, and bad flashing. It does not matter as well if you have metal/colourbond, slate, tile, terracotta, or concrete roofing. If it was installed poorly, then problems will occur. The age of your roof as well as how frequently it was inspected and maintained over the years will also affect its condition. However rest assured, Southern Cross Roofing has got you covered.
