Routine roof repairs are vital to the maintenance of your roof, and are a very cost effective alternative to replacing your whole roof due to age or environmental damage. When you regularly repair damaged roof tiles or replace old screws that keep roofing sheets in place, you drastically improve the longevity of your roof which, in turn, saves you money and inconvenience later on.
The process of roof repair will depend on the type of roof you have, and what items need to be repaired. Oftentimes this is a straightforward process that simply involves replacing the old with the new, and as such usually requires less than a day to complete.
The following is a general idea of the main repairs carried out on popular roof types:
Tiled roofs will need to have broken or cracked tiles removed and replaced. Replacement tiles are usually colour and style matched so they complement the overall look of the current roof.
Ridge-capping and Pointing will need to be repaired due to age related wear and tear.
Tin roofs will need to have screws refitted due to deteriorated or rusted screw washers, which can cause leaks into the roof cavity resulting in significant water damage. Tin roofs are also highly susceptible to corrosion and rust over time.
Galvanised iron roofs may require sheets to be re-fitted due to environmental damage, such as cyclonic winds, as well as require screws to be replaced due to deteriorated or rusted screw washers.
