It is easy to forget to check the very thing that protects our biggest asset, our roof! Is your roof sheeting cracked, sagging or in need of replacing? Are broken tiles and ridge caps allowing water to enter your ceiling spaces? With our roof typically over our heads, we often forget to notice when such an important part of our house requires a bit of attention.
During the hot Australian summers, silicone seals expand and break their bonds allowing water to flow through during rainy days and create drip spots on the ceiling below. Valley tray edges can become flattened over time and allow heavy rains to run over the lips and into the ceiling space below. The pointing of your ridge capping should be sealed to the tiles and ensure that the ridge stays attached to the roof in high winds. If the ridge line is cracked or becomes loose, it should be re-pointed to create a tight waterproof seal.
You should have your roof checked by a professional at least once a year to ensure that gutters and valleys are free of debris, so they don’t allow water to backflow into your eaves or ceiling. Chimney flues, lead flashing and all protruding roof fixings should be checked to maintain the silicone bonds and weather seals remain intact. Roof tiles should be inspected for cracks and ridge capping should be re-pointed if loose to ensure your roofing stays firmly attached.
Working Class Hands can inspect and repair any roof leak and stop further water from entering your ceiling space. We can measure and fit new lead flashings, downpipes, valley trays or colourbond steel sheeting to ensure that rain stays on the outside of your roof space. We use quality Australian made products for all our roofing repairs to ensure a longer life span in our climate and less maintenance.
A quick inspection of your entire roof space now, will ensure that you don’t get water where it shouldn’t be. A little maintenance goes a long way to keeping your biggest asset secure and dry through the wet season.
