Replacing a Roof - 3 Things You Can do to Avoid it

Replacing a roof is no easy task nor is it affordable. Therefore, taking the right precautions to avoid the need to replace your roof should be on the top of your priority list.

Furthermore, the last thing anyone wants to do is replace their roof during the cold winter months in South Africa as replacing a roof doesn't happen overnight.

We have compiled a list of three major things that you can do to ensure your roof lasts as long as it should while helping you avoid the hefty cost of replacing a roof.

How to avoid a roof replacement - roofing materials Cape Town

Avoid Replacing a Roof by Inspecting and Maintaining

The value of regular roof inspections cannot be fully expressed. Our belief is that you really don’t need to have a problem with your roof in order to carry out an inspection.

By conducting regular inspections, you will be able to identify potential issues that may arise in the future.

This gives you the opportunity to carry out some basic, routine maintenance that will help you prevent a small issue from becoming much bigger and more expensive to repair.

Although roofing materials are not made to last forever, you can really extend the lifespan of your roof by doing regular inspections, and the older your roof is, the more regularly you should inspect it.

What to Look for When Inspecting Your Roof

It can be easy to miss potential issues when inspecting your roof, especially if you’re not entirely sure what to look for.

We suggest at least the following, every time you inspect:

  • Walk around and check the exterior from the ground for any visible signs of sagging, aging or damage and take notes of problem areas
  • Check for piles of leaves and areas with moss or algae as these are major causes of serious leakage
  • If you have roofing shingles, look out for missing, warped or buckled shingles that are peeling away from the roof as this will lead to serious water damage if left unrepaired. Also, check for granule loss on your shingles. If there is loss of granules, it means your shingles have aged and may not be protecting your home as they should
  • Clean your gutters and roof overhangs and while you’re there, check for rot as this indicates that there is a bigger issue that needs attention

Don’t Waste Time, Repair Immediately – The Importance of Roof Maintenance

So, you’ve spotted some damaged areas or minor leaks; don’t wait too long before attending to these issues.

The longer you wait, the bigger the problem will become and the more costly it will be to repair.

Your roof is constantly exposed to extreme weather conditions as well as other destructive forces such as rodents and birds.

Any weak spots will be extra vulnerable to these factors and if left unattended, you could be faced with all the nightmares that come with replacing a roof.

Waterproof Your Roof

A roof that has not been waterproofed and is exposed to excess water or moisture paves a one-way road to disaster.

Leaks and moisture can cause serious mould and rotting of trusses which compromises the stability of the roof structure.

This can lead to a complete collapse, so it's easy to see why waterproofing your roof should be taken seriously. In fact, there should be no question about it.

A waterproofed roof is more likely to last much longer than one that isn’t protected against moisture and it’s likely that your insurance will be unwilling to pay for any type of water damage if the roof is not waterproofed.

Cape Roof Sheeting – Roofing Materials Cape Town

When it comes to basic roof repair and maintenance, a little bit of DIY knowledge will do. However, for the more serious issues such as waterproofing, we suggest you use the services of a professional.
