Q: How do I determine if I need a new roof?
A: At times, it’s easy to see roof damage, especially following major storms. However, there are often unseen problems with roofing systems. Therefore, it is important to schedule a thorough inspection of your roof to allow our team of experts to assess any roof damage. Platinum Roof Coatings offers a no cost, no-obligation roof inspection by a qualified professional to determine if your roof is damaged and in need of repair or replacement.
Q: What are the causes of roof damage?
A: There are many causes of roof damage. The most common are:
We often fail to adequately maintain our roof, which is the most common cause of roof damage. This is why it’s important for a professional roofing technician to regularly inspect the exterior of your roof. Our team of experts can assess issues including missing or broken tiles, holes, mouldy or rotted areas, and loose or missing flashing. Additionally, they can check for leaks, gaps, and signs of water damage.
Severe wind and hail storms often cause great damage to a home’s roof. Weather damage also occurs over time due to the harsh Australian sun. The only way to be sure if the weather has affected your roof is to have it inspected by a professional.
- Attendant Part Defects
Defects or damage to attendant roofing parts such as gutters, flashing and fascia can lead to roof damage. For example, flashing helps direct the flow of water around openings. If flashing has come away from the seams or has holes, water can seep into your home’s walls, leading to mould problems and damaging building materials. This can lead to expensive renovations that are easily avoided if you have your roofing inspected regularly.
Large branches, leaves and debris can both damage roof materials and block gutters, preventing water from draining away from your roof. The combination of excess foliage and poor drainage can help foster damp areas that promote moss and algae to grow.
Q: Can I partially restore a roof?
A: Yes, it’s possible to partially restore a roof. Again, a thorough inspection is required to assess your roof issues, enabling our technicians to provide advice and recommendations. For example, you may just need some roof re-pointing and broken tiles replaced.
