A newly-built house in Narre Warren probably won’t need the repair services of a roofing expert for a couple of years. Most roofs are built to last for years especially if made with high quality materials and proper installation. But, the secret in extending the lifespan of a roof is proper maintenance.
Everyday weather conditions, the extreme heat, rain and cold temperature, affect roof performance and durability. Terracotta tile roofing, for example, is made of clay that’s naturally moisture absorbent. This is why moss and lichen grow on it making the roof look ugly. In addition, the flow of water to the gutter may be hampered. Sometimes, it is also necessary to fix deteriorated mortar joints.
Concrete roofs, on the other hand, are subject to moisture penetration, which affect the durability of the underlayment and batten system. With deterioration, these parts need to be replaced in 5 years or so.
Another popular type of roof, Colorbond roofing, can last for years with little maintenance. However, its condition must be checked routinely to prevent the onset of rusts. If not checked, a little rust spot can become a big hole causing water leaks during the rainy season.
Our company roof specialists offer services for all types of roof, including de-mossing, cleaning and re-glazing of tile roofs, re-pointing and resealing, guttering, rust-proofing metal roofs, repainting and other roof-related repairs.
