Seven Reasons Why You Need a Roof Restoration

by Nav G on Jun 26, 2018

The term ‘roof restoration’ is used to refer to the process of cleaning, re-coating and repairing a roof.  It may involve activities like realigning and resealing the roof, replacing structural supports and removing damaged tiles. It can be done on any roof whether it is made of concrete slabs or galvanized iron.

The trick is to know when to do it. One thing though is sure; a damaged roof could lead to damage of property like electronics inside the house due to water leaks, moldy ceilings, and health issues and eventually, a house could topple due to water leaking to its foundations.

As a rule of thumb, consider a roof restoration in NSW if you have been in a house for over five years. In fact, bring in an expert to check your roof’s integrity when you begin to notice things like cracked tiles, misalignment and debris stuck in the roof crevices. If you still need convincing, here are seven reasons why you need a roof restoration:

To protect against extreme weather

Roofs protect your household from weather conditions such as winds, storms, and rainfall. However, over time, these weather conditions can wear out the roof. What’s more, the well-kept roof will also provide insulation, controlling the temperatures inside the house. Damage to the roof, if not managed early could mean that you spend more and not just on repairs; you will pay more in energy bills, trying to keep the atmosphere in the house comfortable.

To ensure maximum safety

Damaged roofs can endanger the lives of those living in the homes. It starts with a small crack which soon escalates.  Before long, it is a safety issue; tiles could fall anytime, and in case of rainfall, the roof leaks all over the place.

To reduce water damage

Many people are familiar with water damage following blocked pipes. However, heavy winds and storms can bring debris, moisture, and dust that block gutters and drains. Without regular inspections and roof restorations in NSW, the draining pipes stop functioning. Water accumulates on the roof and begins to leak into the ceiling wreaking havoc in the home.

To protect against animals and birds

Damage to roof tiles could invite animals and birds to live in the cracks. Pests could even build their nests, and once they do, that can only spread. When the animals breed, you will have no option but to replace the roof, eventually. Besides that, you will incur a lot of money paying an exterminator. The best option is to do roof restorations in NSW regularly.

To improve the aesthetics

Nothing does wonders for the look of your house than a well-maintained roof. Compared to other parts of your home, the roof is the part most likely to be destroyed by external factors. From rust to colour fades, a roof restoration will solve these issues. It will return the roof to its original beauty injecting life to it that can be felt from miles away. As an added benefit, should you plan to sell your house; the restoration will increase its value.

To go green

If you are concerned about your carbon footprint, you may consider doing a roof restoration towards reducing it. You can change the material of your roof. You will also have less to dispose of, and you get to improve your home’s sustainability by reusing the roof you already have.

To get additional warranty

Many roof restoration companies use materials with manufacturer warranties up to 15 years. You can go for a service with this offer especially if you are planning to sell your home. Remember to check the number of years your restoration covers.

A roof restoration specialist will provide you with quality materials that you can trust to last. They also offer additional benefits such as warranties and sometimes regular inspections. The expert will also be able to figure out other aspects such as where the roof may be losing heat, something that you cannot do for yourself. Therefore, if your roof is looking worse for wear, contact your local roof restoration team for help.
