How do I know if my roof needs to be repaired?
Higher Energy Bills
If you have suddenly noticed a significant spike in your heating or air conditioning costs, there’s a chance that warm or cool air could be escaping via your roof. If you get your roof repaired quickly and address the ventilation issue, your energy bills should return to normal.
Peeling or Blistering Exterior Paint
If your attic is not ventilated properly, a build-up of humidity or moisture near the roofline could cause paint to blister and peel. This could also be a sign that your gutter system isn’t functioning properly, so this is also worth inspecting.
Staining on Interior Walls
If you have noticed some discolouration or staining on your ceiling or interior walls, this could be due to a variety of factors. The underlayment of your roof could be allowing moisture to enter your home, leading to staining, so you will need to consult a professional to have this fixed.
Wet, Dark or Dirty Shingles
If the shingles of your roof are trapping moisture, they aren’t functioning properly. However, it is important to note that water runs downhill, so the moisture may not appear directly underneath the affected shingle. If you suspect that your shingles are damaged, you will need to have the entire roof inspected.
Shingle Remnants in Gutters
If you have spotted a black and coarse substance that looks like sand in your gutters, there’s a chance that this could be shingle granules. Asphalt or composite shingles shed when they begin to wear away and often land in your gutters, so they will need to be replaced.
Rays of Outside Light in the Attic
If you notice rays of light entering your attic during the day, there are holes in your roof that water can also enter through. Check your shingles to see if they need replacing and call our team of experts to fix the problem.
What do roof repairs involve?
Several things can go wrong with your property’s roof, including broken roof tiles, weather damage and leaks. A professional roof repair job on the Gold Coast involves identifying these issues with your roof and then carrying out the appropriate repair tasks required to return your roof to good condition.
There are several different types of roof repair, including:
Sagging Roof Repair
If your roof is sagging, this is likely to be caused by one of two things; either the internal structure has suffered water damage or the roof’s materials are too heavy for the timber frame and are causing it to sag.
If the materials on your roof are too heavy, the repair job will usually involve adding more joists; the cost of which will vary depending on how many joists are required and the size of your roof.
If your internal structure is sagging as a result of waterlogging, you will need to have some of the parts replaced. The price of this will depend on the size of your roof and the extent of the damage.
Damaged Roof Tiles
If one of the tiles in your roof is missing or broken, it is essential to have this fixed immediately. Broken roof tiles could not only cause water and wind to leak into your home, but they could also fall and injure someone passing by.
Damage caused by missing tiles could also cause further damage to the surrounding tiles, causing even further damage and more expensive future repair costs.
Roof Valley Repair
The portion of your roof where the two slopes meet is known as the roof valley. The function of this part of your roof is to join the entire roof together and direct rainwater downwards towards the gutter below.
The roof valley is rainwater’s first point of contact, and so it is subject to a lot of wear and tear. Over time, contact with water can cause significant damage to the roof valley, which can lead to leaks.
To repair this, our experts will either replace the cement of the roof valley or reuse the existing flashing after the leak has been fixed. This repair job can take up to a day to complete.
