Your roof keeps your home safe from the elements. A damaged or poorly-maintained roof can result in expensive property damage. Therefore, we’ve put together a guide so you know when to hire a roofer.
You Can See Damage On The Roof
If your roof has visible damage, like a hole or area with tiles missing, you need a roofer as soon as possible. Leaving it for too long can result in damage to your property’s structure. You’ll need to hire a professional to carry out a thorough inspection and get any repairs done quickly.
You’ve Got Damage On The Ceilings
Sometimes roof damage isn’t visible from outside your home. However, damp patches on your ceilings could indicate a crack in your roof that’s letting water in. Get a roofer in to have a look at your property and diagnose any issues. Even if the issue is attributed to something else, you’ll have peace of mind that your roof is safe and fit for purpose.
Your Roof Is Sagging
If you can see areas of your roof are sagging then that’s a sign that something isn’t right. Perhaps the timber is rotting or maybe your flat roof needs some maintenance. Whatever it is, a professional roofer can take a look and get your roof back to its former glory.
Your Roof Is Old
Depending on the type of roof that you have, you might need to hire a roofer to carry out a full replacement. Many roofs can last for between 15 and 25 years. If the age of yours surpasses this, it’s probably time for a refresh. Although a new roof can be an expensive job, it’s a necessary procedure. You’ll benefit from lower maintenance costs and the peace of mind that your roof will last for a further 15-25 years before it needs replacing again.
There’s Been A Big Weather Event
Storms can cause a lot of damage to roofs. From fallen trees to high winds and hail, there’s many outcomes of a big weather event that could require the help of a roofer. Not only that, but extreme heat can also cause damage to some roofs. UV damage can weaken the materials, resulting in cracks or blistering. If the weather has been particularly harsh in the last few weeks, you may want to call out a roofer for a maintenance check.
