Your roof is one of the most important structural features of your home, however it is not exactly easy to inspect for damage or minor surface wear and tear every day. Due to the extensive exposure to weather elements, including harsh sun, heavy winds and rain, your roof is the recipient of significantly eroding and damaging forces that must be considered when choosing your roof surface and keeping it maintained. Small issues can quickly turn into big problems and regular roof inspection by an expert, such as ROOFWEST Roof Restorations, is vital to save money and inconvenience in the future.
How do you know if your roof needs restoring? It’s the first place to show ageing but it’s the hardest to see. Some indicators your roof needs restoring before costly repairs are required include:
- Loose Roof Tiles
- Vermin Party
- Faded Tiles and Tin
Loose Roof Tiles
Often not too much of a cause for concern, a loose roof tile that has not been cracked can be easily be replaced back into it’s original spot. However, one usually ensures others, and this will mean that your UV protection coating has broken down and needs to be recoated. Recoat and restore your roof with ROOFWEST’s premium roofing membranes, fully adhered and fluid applied to protect the tiles and prevent loosening and inevitable cracking.
Can you hear the mice and possums taking up residence in your roof cavity? Not only does their excrement smell, their nocturnal noises keep everyone awake at night and claw activity damages the roof insulation. Access to the inside of your roof means a crack or hole in your roof surface, inviting vermin in to spend the night in the warmth. Have the roof repaired and keep your roof cavity free of the vermin party.
Faded Tiles and Tin
Considered more of an aesthetic issue, the quality, colour and texture of your roof surface can indicate much more than just age and exposure. A faded roof can denote significant wear and tear to the roof membrane, a sign that further damage may be following close behind. Mould or fungi growing on a tin roof needs to be removed to prevent bacterial growth and decay. Not just about keeping up appearances with your home’s crowning glory, the state of your roof is your main indicator that it may need some attention before any damage occurs.
