Scoresby

Scoresby has an oceanic climate, which means there is sufficient rain all throughout the year. If you live in this suburb, it is important to have a home with the right type of roofing and do the necessary maintenance to make sure that your family stays dry and safe.

When it comes to roof styles, flat roofs or those with little to no pitch are not recommended. This is because flat roofs tend to pool water when it rains and that contributes to roof leakages. It is better to choose roofs with slopes so that rain water runs off smoothly to the gutter.

As for the type of materials to use, choose one that is durable and can withstand heavy rain and strong winds. Both tile roofing and metal roofing are good choices, but to be sure that your choice of material, whatever it is, will last long-term, appropriate maintenance should be observed. If you need help with any roof maintenance services, Melbourne Roof Specialist provides quality and affordable services in the Scoresby area.

Even if you don’t see any drip or discoloration on ceilings or walls, it is a good idea to have your roof inspected every six months. Doing so will allow you to spot potential future problems. Fixing them now will keep the damages minimal enabling you to save more.

Tile Roofing Repairs

Tile roofs can last many, many years, but problems may arise as a result of wear and tear. Do the following fixes right away when you see the corresponding problem.

  • De-mossing and Pressure cleaning – Moss on roof tiles are not only unattractive, it can also cause the tiles to absorb more water, thereby adding strain to the roof structure.
  • Tile replacement – Cracked tiles expose the underlayment so that when it rains, it’s possible for water to seep through which eventually leads to sagging roof, discolored ceilings or leaks.
  • Valley restoration – Valleys can be clogged with debris and leaves. If not cleaned regularly, it may be overloaded with rain water and cause leaks. If made with galvanized metal, valleys are prone to rusting and may need replacement.

Metal Roofing Repairs

The number one problem with metal roofs is corrosion. Some parts that may have rusted, such as the nails or screws, the roof edges, or the flashing, need to be fixed right away. It’s not right to just paint the surface to cover the rust. These steps are necessary to prevent further corrosion.

  • Scrape away the rust using wire brush.
  • Clean the area.
  • Apply a metal primer to prevent further rusting.
  • Coat several times with the suitable paint.

If the metal sheets have small holes because of rust formation, the holes must be patched. If the whole metal sheet is covered with rust, it’s better to remove and replace it.

Roof specialists replaced our sagging old tiled roof with a new colourbond roof. They worked really well with our carpenter and communicated well before and during the project. We are really happy with the end result. Their pricing was competive and we definately recommend them.

Amanda W
Great team, and seamless experience. The team kept me up to date and the work done was thorough, and to a high quality. Highly recommended. Restored our late 70’s tiled roof to look like new. Neighbors have all commented how great it now looks.

Peter Pianta
I had a number of roofing tradespeople who had repaired and replaced sections of my roof in the past and I had not been overly happy with the quality of work completed. After making the tough decision to replace the entire roof, I turned to the roof specialist for assistance. Whilst not the cheapest, they were competitively priced and in terms of the outcome achieved, great value for money. The team was fast, efficient, tidy and the finish was excellent. One could not ask for much more.
