Tips for Keeping Your Roof in Top Condition
Looking after your roof is essential for keeping your property safe and warm. Damaged roofs can cause leaks and cold draughts and they can also be a safety hazard, with loose tiles posing a risk if they were to fall off. If your roof becomes seriously damaged, a replacement roof will cost you more in the long run so it’s highly beneficial to keep it in good condition.
Here are some top tips from the property experts at Lti Transformations to keep your roof in top condition:
- Inspect your roof on a regular basis. This is a good habit to adopt in order to spot damage at the earliest point possible. You may need to inspect your roof more regularly if there has been any adverse weather to ensure it has not sustained damage. In general, inspecting roofs in spring is a good option as you can see any damage caused during winter and repairs will be easier.
- Keep roofs and gutters clean. Moss can be especially problematic if left alone for too long as it holds water, so get rid of this as soon as you see it. Gutters should not be left to build up dirt and overflow as this can cause damage to roofs and fascias.
- Consider a roof refurbishment if your roof becomes damaged. This involves roof cleaning and treatment as well as any necessary repairs to restore your roof to good condition. A primer, coat and seal will then be applied to help with the roof’s upkeep, protecting it from future damage and wear and tear. A roof refurbishment is excellent value for money as it will prevent a roof replacement being needed and it is sufficient to keep many roofs in top condition.
- Carry out repairs quickly. If tiles and shingle are missing or your roof is leaking, this can lead to bigger problems if not fixed as soon as possible. If you need help repairing your roof, contact a professional who will be able to do the work for you.
