What can go wrong with the roof?
With your roof being exposed to the elements, it’s inevitably going to develop various problems over time. Even the most sophisticated roofing systems are not spared. The average life span of a roof is about 25 years though with proper maintenance it can last for longer. A lot can go wrong over time, you may begin to lose tiles, or your roof may start sagging — in which case, your home will require a full roof replacement. Common problems that require repairs include leaks, loose/missing or cracked tiles, blocked gutters and cracked flashing.
- Leak repairs
Roof leaks should be promptly fixed before it leads to structural damage. Detecting the source of a leak may be challenging, but our experienced repair specialists will quickly identify and fix any leaks.
- Repair of roof tiles
Occasionally, roof tiles become porous, delaminate or break away. In such instances, roof repairs in Melbourne will be necessary. The types of repair work often required are re-bedding and re-pointing.
- Gutter cleaning
Your guttering plays an important role in efficiently distributing rainwater. Moss can grow quickly on roof tiles and in your guttering — especially if the home is in a shaded area. Moss can also clog the gutter if not removed. When the gutter is clogged, it may cause the fascia boards to rot, making it easy for water to enter your home and damage the ceiling, walls and woodwork. In addition to roof repairs and restorations, Top Glaze Roofing Systems offer high-quality guttering, downpipes and fascia covers with a 20-year warranty.
- Repair of cracked flashing
Flashing is made of metal strips attached to the seams and edges of the roof to create a water-resistant barrier. When it’s damaged, it can cause the roof to leak. Small holes are easily plugged or repaired, but flashing with larger holes will need to be replaced.
