Ringwood

If you’ve lived 10 years or more in the same house here in Ringwood, you may be wondering about the integrity of your roofing. Will it last another 10 years? Most experts on this matter say that roofs usually last 30 to 50 years. However, as roofs age, its ability to withstand environmental elements diminishes.

There are some things that must be done to the roof to make sure it will last a long time. Otherwise, it will be due for repairs or replacement much sooner than expected. An assessment of the roofing by a reputable roofer is necessary to know what procedures are required.

Melbourne Roof Specialist can send a professional roofer to your real property in Ringwood for a visual inspection. Depending on the type of roofing materials used, the age and condition of the roof, he will make an appropriate recommendation such as mentioned below to help prolong the roof’s lifespan.

Replace Broken Tiles

Terracotta or concrete tiles are durable roofing materials. However, they also become brittle as years pass. When tree branches fall on the roof, for example during a storm, the tiles may crack. When someone makes a wrong step on the roof, the tiles may crack. When tiles absorb moisture, perhaps because of moss growth or compromised sealant, the tiles may suffer winter crack.

Broken or cracked tiles, including ridge caps, need to be replaced to prevent the exposure and deterioration of the overall roofing structure, which could lead to roof leaks and other damages.

High Pressure Water Cleaning

Using high pressure water for cleaning is not recommended for all types of roof. Metal and concrete roofs can handle this method of cleaning. But as for shingles, the use of chemicals or soft washing is better because high pressure water can damage the shingles.

Moss and algal growth, debris and leaves must be removed for two reasons. They diminish the aesthetic appeal of the roof and they contribute to the potential source of damages and roof leaks. If not removed, they hamper the smooth flow of water or may cause water overflow.

Gutter Installation / Gutter Cleaning

Several problems may arise in relation to gutters; therefore, homeowners need to be closely monitoring their gutter system. Gutters may be clogged with debris and leaves; gutters may be leaking or pulling away from the fascia boards; or gutters may have been installed with an incorrect slope or the gutter joints are separating.

All these problems must be addressed either with cleaning, a simple repair or a new gutter installation if the whole system is found beyond repair.

These three are just a few of the roofing services that homeowners may need to have a well-maintained roofing. Call Melbourne Roof Specialist to get a free quote on these and other roofing services.
