When you suspect there’s a problem with your roof, it’s always wise to get in touch with a roofer as soon as possible, as they can diagnose the problem and set about fixing it. Whilst this much is evident from the job title, you may be unsure about the actual duties that roofers have and the services they could offer you. With this in mind, here are the main services that roofers offer to their clients.
A clean roof helps to remove the growth of moss or algae, which could eventually invest your pipes – and even limit the life expectancy of your roof. For that reason, a roofer can be essential for keeping the roof clean, and this, once again, helps to improve the overall aesthetics of your home to passers-by and guests. To make sure a mould colony isn’t causing invisible damage to your roof, it helps to contact a roofer and investigate.
Your roof will sustain minor damages due to wear and tear or poor weather conditions, and while this usually won’t pose a problem, it could lead to catastrophic leaks over time. Small gaps in your roof which are invisible from most angles can lead to water infesting your property, weakening its structure and damaging your belongings. If you suspect a leak in your home, a qualified roofer could check this out and assess if there are any leaks present.
If there’s a leak in your home or any other type of damage to your roof, a roofer can work to repair this, while preventing you from needing a full roof replacement. Most damages are possible to repair quickly and without substantial fees. If your home has a sudden spike in energy bills, damaged roof shingles, peeling paint – or any other symptoms of roof damage – it’s worth contacting a roofer to investigate for any potential concerns.
If the roof has noticeable wear and tear, especially over a long period of time, a roof restoration may be a cost-effective alternative to a full roof replacement. Roofers have the skills to assess the roof in its entirety and can determine if a restoration is worthwhile repairing and replacing individual tiles as necessary to help it return to life. A team of roofers could conduct a full restoration in a matter of days, using high-quality roof materials.
Roofs come in many shapes and sizes, and this impacts how your roofer works – including the approach they will take. Qualified and skilled roofers conduct a wide range of duties across roofs of all kinds, including steep roofs. Roofers know how to avoid slips or falls on difficult, sometimes slippery surfaces, and how to make use of fall arrest technology. No matter how steep your roof is, an experienced roofer can still repair or restore it.
One of a roofer’s most prominent duties is to paint roofs in a range of compelling colours – allowing the home to stand out amongst the crowd. This also has practical benefits, such as providing a strong defence against the natural wear and tear of the environment, including the intense Australian sun. Roofers begin by clearing the roof of moss or debris before adding an initial primer, followed by two more coatings for high-quality roof protection.
Another service that many roofers provide, colour consultancy involves little direct roof work but can be a vital prerequisite for figuring out their roof painting approach. Roofers work closely with their clients, in advance of any painting jobs, to assess the overall aesthetic of their home – and determine the colours which best suit the home’s mood. Roofers who offer painting services understand that the colour of your roof affects how people view your property, making it essential that you agree on a good hue.
Roofers don’t just work with the roofs themselves, but also your guttering, fascias and downpipes which require regular maintenance; for this reason, you may hire a roofer to paint these parts of your home. This makes sure your roof and guttering have a consistent aesthetic – as painting one but not the other is immediately obvious. Your roofer can paint your gutters, fascias and downpipes to both strengthen and revitalise them.
