Inspecting your roof

There are many areas that are suggested when inspecting your roof. The exterior of your roof is one of the most important parts to regularly inspect, especially after a bad spell of weather. There are typically two types of materials that roofs are made from, metal and tiles. It is important to check tiled roofs for cracks and weather damage, whereas metal roofing can become loose, both styles of roofing if damaged can allow water to seep into the interior of the roof and cause costly damage to the roof structure.

One of the most common issues that arise if you have a flat roof is ponding or prolonged standing water puddles, these can both lead to premature ageing of the roof and can cause the roof to sag and split over time.

If your property has timber aspects that are exposed to the elements, these can become prone to rotting and mould which in time can cause irreversible damage to your roof.

It is equally important to inspect the interior of your roof, especially regularly inspecting the timber beams. If you notice cracks or areas of mould this is an indication that the beams are damaged and may require them to be replaced or maintained. It is crucial that you do not paint over the damaged areas as this can make the damager worse over time, in fact, it is essential to speak to a roofing expert so that they can analyse the damage and complete the best course of action. It is equally important to ensure that the waterproofing inside the roof is covering the open areas entirely so that there is no noticeable damage to the waterproofing. Any leaks that may go undetected can then damage further into the interior of the roof which will make them weak and undependable.

You may also find that you are noticing damp areas within the interior of your property, most commonly on your ceilings, this means that your property already has significant damage to the roof both externally and internally. Typically you will notice a variety of signs within your home from water stains to cracks or bubbles, this is a clear indication that you have water accumulating inside the roof. No matter the size of the crack you might be faced with big problems that will lead to a wide variety of issues.
