With most Newcastle and Hunter Valley residents still reeling from the financial crises caused by COVID-19, roof repair services are seen as more of a luxury than a necessity. However, this is a particularly costly mistake. Your roof is the largest form of protection for your home and possessions. Ignoring any potential weaknesses or structural issues could be disastrous, resulting in water damage from leaks, high energy bills, pest infestations, mould and rot, and even a complete collapse!
However, that doesn’t mean that you want to schedule a call-out with a professional roof repair company if they’re not needed right now. So, how do you know when roof repair services are needed? Keep calm and read on! Our roofing experts have listed three serious signs that the time is now.
#1 Blistering Or Peeling Paint
If your exterior paint is peeling or bubbling (blistering), then you’ve got one of two problems on your hands. Your attic may be poorly ventilated, allowing moisture and humidity to build up around your roofline. Not only are perpetual paint jobs expensive, but moisture and humidity will also invite mould and mildew – so you’ll want to call professional roof repair services. It may also indicate that your guttering system has failed, which will also need professional help ASAP as this could cause flooding and leaking issues fast.
#2 Water Stains On Walls Or Ceiling
If you notice any water stains or discolouration inside your home, you may have a serious problem. If it’s caused by a leak, you should get a professional roofer in to locate and patch it before it causes more water damage. However, if it’s caused by weaknesses in the underlayment allowing moisture in, you may even need a complete roof replacement ASAP before it causes structural collapse!
#3 Sagging Roof Deck Or Rafters
This is a particularly worrying issue that could also require a complete roof replacement. Call in a professional roofer immediately to assess the issue and decide whether localised repairs are needed to prevent collapse or a replacement to solve the failure.
