Weather can significantly impact the condition and longevity of roofs in various ways:

– Sun Exposure: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause roofing materials to fade, crack, or become brittle over time.
– Rain and Moisture: Persistent rain can lead to water infiltration, especially if the roof has existing vulnerabilities like cracks or loose tiles.
– Wind Damage: Strong winds can dislodge or damage roofing materials, leading to leaks or more extensive damage.
– Hail: Hail can cause dents, cracks, or even break roofing tiles (depending on their quality).
– Temperature Fluctuations: Rapid temperature changes can cause roofing materials to expand and contract, weakening their integrity over time.
– Debris from Storms: Storms can bring debris damaging the roof or clogging gutters, affecting drainage.
A functioning roof is arguably the most crucial section of your home. Unfortunately, roofing problems are among the most commonly reported issues by building inspectors, making it a key influencing factor for buyers when choosing a home.

Neglecting your roof decreases your home’s overall value and drastically increases the chances you may need to fork out tens of thousands of wasted dollars in the future.
Like visiting the dentist, catching an issue with your roof early on is the best way to prevent a small issue from developing into a major financial headache. It’s generally recommended to have your roof professionally inspected for maintenance every 5 to 10 years. This ensures you’re maximising your roof’s longevity, preventing any minor issues from becoming major.
Requiring a complete roof replacement is rare and only sometimes needed. Often, our team will be able to complete cost-effective repairs and maintenance as a first measure before suggesting a replacement. There are, however, a few instances where a complete replacement is required:

– Extensive damage has occurred, and a significant portion of the roof is ruined due to severe weather, falling trees, or large-scale deterioration.
– It’s too old, and the tiles have begun to disintegrate. A roof’s lifespan greatly depends on regular maintenance and care, using the correct roofing materials, and expert installation, all of which can speed up deterioration if done improperly.
– Widespread leaking or extensive water damage often indicate that repairs may not suffice, and a complete replacement is a more viable option.
– Suppose your roof shows signs of sagging or you notice extensive structural problems. In that case, this is a critical indication that a replacement may be required to maintain the safety and integrity of your home.
– Upgrading for aesthetic or improved resale value requires a complete roof replacement.
Typically no, we’ll always recommend completing repairs and maintenance before suggesting a replacement to ensure our clients receive the most cost-effective solution.

Yes. In some instances, we can provide a ballpark over the phone. Still, it’s usually challenging to quote the repair cost until we’ve completed a thorough roofing inspection.
We can typically complete an inspection within 30 minutes, occasionally longer, depending on the issue.
There’s a range of telltale signs of damage your roofer will look for during an inspection:

– Missing, broken, or cracked tiles which indicates your roof is vulnerable to potential leaks and weather extremes
– Tile granules or shards in your gutter indicate wear and tear and tile ageing.
– Rust or corrosion on metal parts can occur, particularly around your roof’s flashing and vents, indicating potential leaks and water intrusion.
– Water damage signs such as leaks, stains, or mould growth within your attic.
– Compromised flashing around your chimney and skylights, signalling roof leak points.
– Sagging roof decks are uncommon and usually found in drastically aged roofs. A sagging roof indicates extensive structural issues or prolonged water damage.
– The growth of moss, algae, or lichen on your tiles indicates your tiles need cleaning.
– Interior signs of roof damage such as peeling paint, discoloured plasterboards, or ceiling stains.
– Deteriorating valleys means rainwater will not flow properly off your roof, increasing the chance of pooling and leaks.

These signs help our expert roofers accurately assess the roof’s condition and determine the necessary repairs.
It’s generally best practice to have your roof inspected by a licensed roofer every 10 to 15 years. An expert roofer will typically climb over your roof to visually examine its surface. They’ll also climb into the attic and inspect the interior of your roof (if necessary).
Undertaking roof repairs on your own can be risky and not recommended. Hiring professionals for any roof or leaky roof repair is always safer and more effective to ensure the issue is addressed correctly and professionally. In addition, having your roof repaired by an expert ensures everything is noticed, and you’re made entirely aware of any underlying issues, potentially yielding significant savings in the long term.
The duration of roof repairs depends on the extent of damage and project complexity. Minor repairs may take a few hours, while more extensive damage could require a day (or more).
Look for signs like missing or cracked tiles, leaks in your attic or ceiling, and damaged flashing. Regular inspections can also identify less obvious issues.
It entirely depends on the severity of the issue. Some roof leaks can be fixed easily, while others indicate more severe problems requiring extensive attention.
Regular inspections, keeping gutters clean, removing debris, and addressing minor issues promptly with the help of a qualified roofer can help maintain your roof and extend its lifespan.
Roof repairs are best done in dry, mild conditions. Extremely wet weather can make repairs unsafe for our staff and your home, making it an unideal working environment. We’ll typically postpone any repair work for a fine day (unless during emergencies).
