Rusty RoofWhen you think of maintenance around your home, it’s often assumed your roof will stand the test of time and doesn’t need to be inspected or repaired. However, this is not the case. Your roof protects you, your family plus everything in your home and maintenance and repairs are important.

Read on to learn 5 important things to know when it comes to maintaining and repairing your roof including:

  • Don’t delay having repairs done
  • Use a professional and reputable roofing company
  • Quality workmanship
  • Safety
  • Warranty and Insurance

Don’t delay having repairs done

One of the most obvious signs of roof damage is a leaking roof. The occasional drip or two coming from your roof in winter is often forgotten about once summer arrives. If your roof is leaking or showing any signs of damage, it’s essential to prioritise having it repaired. The longer you wait to have your roof inspected and repaired, the more extensive the damage, and cost of repairs, can be.

Use a professional and reputable roofing company

Roof repairs and roof restoration is not a do it yourself task. Working on a roof is dangerous and should only be done by those with the expertise, experience, knowledge and insurance required to do so. Hiring a professional to complete your roof repairs will provide you with a flawless finish using the correct materials ensures the job is completed correctly and your repairs will stand the test of time.

Quality workmanship

Maintaining and Repairing Your RoofResearch the products being used and quality of the workmanship you will receive when having your roof restored. While the lowest quote is an initial saving to your budget now, it can inevitably cost you more in the long run if high quality products and workmanship is not provided.


When working on a roof, safety is the highest priority. It is often underestimated how dangerous working on a roof can be. Inspecting and repairing a roof involves working at heights and climbing up and down ladders. A roof repair is normally not a task that can be worked on a few hours here and there as if not completed in full, your roof can be left exposed and risk further damage.

Warranty and Insurance

While each individual insurance policy and/or warranty differs, roof repairs may be covered under your home insurance or warranty. However, to be eligible to make a claim, many insurers and warranties will only consider claims where the roof repairs have been completed by a professional. Check your individual insurance policy and/or warranty for specific terms and conditions relating to your roof.
