Here are 6 signs that it may be time for roof restoration.
#1 Water Damage Or Leak Marks
Have you noticed frequent water leaks or water damage or stains on your ceiling lately? This is a sign that your roof may have a crack, hole or damaged flashing. You may notice moisture or mould growing and spreading on the ceiling in your home. Once you have spotted the brown watermarks on your ceiling, its time to to get professional help.
#2 Sagging Roof
If certain areas of your ceiling are slightly sagging it could be a major indication that your roof must be repaired. If you notice that there is a bend in your ceiling this is an indication that there is or was water pooling in your roof space. You should reach out to Roof Ranger immediately as this is a safety issue and must have professional attention.
#3 Damaged Or Missing Tile
Roof tiles are durable, however, they can be cracked or broken by falling tree branches or during a storm. These damaged tiles must be replaced as soon as possible if neglected or not replaced water can seep through the cracks and cause the timber roof rafters to rot leading to more expensive roof restoration.
#4 Flashing Material
Flashing a roof is the process of installing waterproof materials to direct water away from critical areas of a roof such as chimneys, skylights and vents. It is also placed in the roof valleys, edges and joins and all other gaps to prevent water damage or leaks. If the roof flashing becomes worn it may be replaced, however regular maintenance by a professional roofing company can help avoid a costly roof flashing replacement.
#5 Poor Maintenance
Roofs are designed to protect your home interior and depending on your roof materials you should not have any issues or problems. However, in order to have a roof for a lifetime, regular maintenance and inspection are essential. Identifying a roof problem early can save you money and stop potential damage to the interior of your home. Roof Ranger can carry out a routine maintenance check and if any damage is discovered they will discuss the best option for you.
#6 Gutters & Downpipes
Occasionally gutters and downpipes can become detached from your home this can occur due to wearing out, or the fascia losing its strength or if the gutter or downpipe was not properly installed. Another gutter problem is rusting this can be prevented with regular gutter cleaning. To avoid leaf build up which will then cause rain to stagnate in the gutters and will cause the gutters to rust. Replacing a gutter or downpipe is costly so regular maintenance inspections are a good idea.
