Signs That Your Property Needs A Roof Restoration
If you've got an older home then often a roof restoration can be a good idea since it can prevent interior damage and save you from costly repair work.
Roof restoration in Brisbane covers a wide range of procedures including renovation of the interior roof, replacing structural supports, replacement of damaged tiles, realignment of the roof, resealing, and various other roof repair work. While it may be yet another expense that you hadn't budgeted for, the good news is that any roof restoration work quickly pays for itself many times over, saving you money on costly repairs and the possibility of serious damage to your home.
That said, how do you know when your roof needs restoration? Are there any early warning signs to be aware of? We've listed below some of the common roof problems you may encounter and what to look for.
Carrying out a Visual Inspection
You don't have to be a qualified roofing contractor to detect problems with your roof but it helps if you can recognise the early warning signs before they develop into something more serious. A visual inspection of your roof can flag up problem areas which aren't that difficult to spot.
Something's not quite right
Misaligned tiles are a sure-fire sign that some sort of roof problem has occurred. Don't worry, it may only be something minor. Either way, it's always best to call out a roofing company to take a look for you. Often minor roof repairs are all that's needed to fix this problem.
An entire section of tiles are out of kilter
This is a bad sign but the good news is it may not be that difficult to fix. More complex restoration may be justified if a large number of tiles are involved or it's having a knock-on effect that's damaging other tiles.
Debris stuck in between the tiles
Most debris on roofs doesn't hang around for long. In fact, there shouldn't be any gaps in between the tiles for debris to gather in the first place. Gaps such as these can point to problems with the roof's interior. Whatever the cause a roof inspection is necessary to ascertain the extent of any damage.
Your gutters may have become misaligned due to storm damage or excessive rain. Whatever the cause it's important to check there are no leaks as this could cause damage elsewhere in your property.
Gaps between the roof and the ceiling
These shouldn't be any gaps in this area and for there to be any, it shows that your roof has moved. It's important to call out a roofing contractor asap since your roof may need extensive repairs or even replacement.
