Roof Maintenance Brisbane
When it comes to roofing, regular roof maintenance Brisbane is the best damage preventative solution and cost effective way to make sure your roof stands the test of time. Your roof is constantly exposed to natures elements especially when it comes to the Australian Summer and wet seasons. You need to plan ahead to ensure that your roof remains functional and keeps you and your family safe every season.
Leaves and debris can build up on your roof very quickly and before long, limit and even block the water flow to the outlests. (downpipes) This in turn causes the water to flow back into your roof and ceilings.
Your roof is made up of a series of water channels that allows water to run off into the valley irons and gutters. Valley irons are designed to direct water to the gutters and are unable to hold large amounts of water volume. Having your roof and gutters clean and free of debris will reduce the risk of blockage and potential water damage.
WHAT ARE THE TOP 3 THINGS YOU MUST DO TO PROTECT YOUR ROOF?
Regular roof maintenance and inspections are important. They are the key to keeping your roof sound and structural. As they say, “preventative is better than cure”. The best thing to do is to get a roofing professional in to analyse the condition of your roof. People usually don’t notice their roof has broken down until water marks and stains appear on their ceilings. This can easily be avoided by having a regular maintenance inspection which would be more cost efficient in the long run.
Identify problems you can see from the ground. RIDGE CAPPING IS WHAT LOCKS YOUR ROOF TILES DOWN. If you notice any cracked roof tiles or any cracked cement breaking away from the ridge capping this will need to be addressed sooner rather than later. Because if the caps get blown off in storm season the rest of the roof could follow!
Keeping your roof and gutters clean from debris. Debris can block up your down pipes and the flow of water coming off your roof particularly in the wet season where there is a high volume of water and cause damage. Ideally a gutter clean is recommended every 6 months or before the storm and fire season. Could be more often depending on your surroundings.
