Why you should re-roof
Knowing what to look for is the first step in determining whether it’s time to replace your roof.
Obviously leaks appearing is your first red-flag. Most people don’t really think about the roof over their heads…until it springs a leak!
Don’t wait until water is pouring through the ceiling and you have to break out the buckets to pay attention to your roof. Homeowners should perform a regular roof inspection twice a year, in the spring and autumn. You should remove debris from rooftops, drains, gutters and downspouts, and at the same time, check for signs of damage. This may include:
- Indications of leakage
- Corrosion and peeling paint
- Missing or exposed nails/screws
- Lifting of iron sheets of tiles due to wind damage
- Cracked or weathered/exposed tiles
- Moss and vegetation growth
- Leaking guttering and downpipes
