Choosing a roof restoration company

If your home is more than 10 years old and it hasn’t had any remodelling done over the past decade, it is likely that wear and tear is beginning to show. If the time has come to consider renovating one of the most important structural elements of your home not to be overlooked is your roof. Whilst the roof of a home provides shelter and security it is also the part of your home that is most exposed to the environment and harsh elements of sun, rain, wind and storms. Over time, the roof will begin to fade, tiles may become brittle and loose or steel roofing may begin to rust, causing leaks and damage to your ceiling. A roof restoration is an elaborate and time-consuming process. Roof coatings today are far more specialised and require a very specific application by a trained professional to maximise performance, ensuring your roof lasts for many years to come. You’ll want to make sure you hire a reputable company who will do the job right the first time. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a roof restoration company:

Choose a licensed company who employs qualified tradesmen

By hiring a fully licensed roof restoration company you’re more likely to get a quality restoration by professionals with good customer service. Check that the company employs qualified tradespeople who proudly represent their company as opposed to a company who uses independent contractors.

Ask about insurance

A roof restoration company should have the appropriate insurances to protect both themselves and their clients against any loss or damage to the property, materials and protection in the case of accident, injury or death.

Warranty

Choose a roof restoration company who offers a minimum 10-year warranty on both materials and workmanship. A dual warranty gives the customer assurance that the roof coatings and materials used are of high quality carried out by an experienced professional who knows what they’re doing.

Initial Inspection and quotes

Ensure that the roofing company thoroughly inspects your roof before supplying you with a written fixed quote. You don’t want any nasty surprises halfway through your restoration when you are already committed and can’t back out.

With all the warnings we have already been hearing of regarding Queensland’s heatwaves this summer, ensure you are prepared for the storm and fire season which is now upon our doorstep. It is essential to be prepared now as temperatures have already started to rise and the risks of storms and fires have increased dramatically. There are a few simple steps to take now, especially with Christmas fast approaching to be ready this summer.

Inspect your roof for any signs of wear, look for any loose tiles or sheeting, rusty screws or indications that your roof may be at risk of leaking. The summer storms really put our roof to the test, and if there are any areas of concern, you can guarantee that the Qld summer storms are going to reveal any problems and put you at risk of having water damage into your home from these problems with your roof. Preventing such issues by inspecting the roof and having problems repaired urgently will save a great deal of hassle and potentially extra expenses.

Additionally now is the time to carry out maintenance of gutters as leaves and debris may have accumulated since last summer. Clear the gutters out and inspect their condition. Leaves and other dry material that builds up in the gutters are a dangerous fire hazard. As such any trees or overhanging branches should also be trimmed to reduce the risk that the fire and storm season brings.
