Roof Repair Service
Whenever there is a storm outside your home, its hard not to be reminded of just how lucky you are to be inside in the warm and dry rather than stuck outside battling the weather. There is no better feeling than being protected, which is why it is so important to make sure that your roof is indeed protecting you. If you have regular storms that pass by your house, you may not even realize that the last storm actually damaged your roof and is slowly letting water into your home. This damage may seem like something easily fixed, but if it goes unnoticed for too long, it can lead to you getting mold in your roof cavity, which can quickly spread right through your home before you even realize it, leaving you with a repair bill in the hundreds of thousands that can take months to repair.
Common Damage And Wear
The most common damages are caused by storms or trees and branches falling on top of your roof, damaging your roofing material and allowing the weather to seep in. The problem with this kind of damage is that it can go unnoticed for so long until its almost too late to do anything about it. There are some tell tale signs of roofing damage you can look out for. Often the first thing to happen is your ceiling might start to crack or bow, and mold spots may start to appear in areas at the top of walls or on the ceiling. This means water is getting into your ceiling cavity somehow and its most likely through your roof. If you see this its best to give us a call immediately so we can come and assess the damage.
Roofing inspections are a great way to find out exactly what is wrong with your roof, because if there is one issue, there is likely to be more hiding about. Climbing on your own roof is never advised because the proper safety equipment needs to be worn so you don’t end up hurting yourself. We can come and inspect your roof to see what damage has been done and if there is anything else that needs to be addressed while we are up there, making sure that your roof is in the best condition possible when we leave the job.
Once the damage has been spotted its time to do an immediate repair. We stock all kinds of tools and equipment to get the job done properly the first time. We can also help source the right materials not just to fix the problem but to make sure it blends in with the rest of your roof and doesn’t stand out on top of your home.
These damages can happen without you even knowing about them. The best way to prevent them is to have ongoing maintenance done to your roof, even if its just organizing a roofing inspection every 6-12 months to check that everything is in good shape and to make sure you feel confident living in your own home.
