With your roof being the first form of protection for your home against bad weather, it needs to stay in optimal condition. If not, your entire home is at risk – not to mention the safety of you and your loved ones as well. We’ve put together a small guide for you that covers 5 of the most common roofing issues and how our team at Ron Nickel Roofing can help.
1. Initial installation was faulty
If your roof has been poorly installed, then chances are you’ll encounter problems sooner rather than later. If, for example, your tiles have not been placed properly, then water will enter and cause damage to your roof and the structure of your home. Or, if the flashing has not been fitted properly, your chimney and vents will be left unprotected.
Here at Ron Nickel Roofing, we offer roof replacement services. Not only will this help maintain your roof space, but it will also add value to your property (should you wish to sell it in the future). Using quality products like Zincalume metal sheeting and Trimdeck roofing, rest assured your roof will be left in excellent shape.
2. Water damage
Water will sneak into any cracks or gaps on your roof if it’s damaged (we can’t stand it when that happens, and we’re confident that you can’t either). Whether it’s due to a missing tile, or damage to your protective membranes, your roof will not be able to withstand heavy rain and snow.
At Ron Nickel Roofing, we can repair or install new metal sheets to prevent more water from coming into your home.
3. Pooling water
A working roof transports rainwater away from your home. If water is pooling on your roof, then that’s a major sign that there’s something wrong. Over time, your roof will become heavier and could collapse from the load it’s carrying.
You’ll be pleased to know that at Ron Nickel Roofing, we’ll find the cause of your pooling water and will repair and replace the damaged components accordingly.
4. Blocked drains
If your roof water is not being transported to your drains, then (like with pooling water) the heavier load could lead to your roof collapsing. Your blocked drains could be caused by a build-up of debris, leaves, or silt.
At Ron Nickel Roofing, we offer roof gutter services, which means we’ll find the root cause of your blocked drains and clear them, ensuring that your downpipes and gutters are left in excellent working condition.
5. Lack of maintenance
If you neglect your roof, it will begin to deteriorate. Many of the issues outlined above start off very small and can be spotted during an inspection. The sooner you get your roof fixed, the less extensive (and cheaper) the work will be.
We’ve got you covered! At Ron Nickel Roofing, we carry out regular roofing inspections so we are more than happy to send our team to you if you live in the New South Wales and Queensland regions.
