When it comes to protecting the integrity of your home, your roof needs to be part of your regular maintenance schedule. Too often, homeowners forget about their roof and the likelihood of severe damage increases, so it is important that your roof is preserved regularly by a specialist. In this article, we’re taking an in-depth look at roof maintenance.

 Regular Maintenance

Just like the interior of your building, your roof requires regular maintenance to protect it from harsh weather. Unlike other aspects of a property, your roof is exposed to the elements constantly, leading to expensive damage. If left unrepaired over time, your property is exposed to debris that can damage the interior. If you notice a difference in temperature or can see structural problems, it is important that you book in a roof inspection right away, particularly if your property is over 10 years old.

Perth’s unpredictable weather can wreak serious havoc on roofs, especially during a storm. Regular maintenance allows peace of mind that your roof is in peak condition. After all, you have invested good money into your property.

What to Look For

If you are concerned about the state of your roof, you can always undertake an inspection on your own but make sure you abide by all safety protocols. A good starting point is to look from the ground to see if there is any damage visible from below.

Depending on your roof type, some damage may not be visible to the naked eye so you will need to climb onto the roof. Before you begin, be sure that you have all the right safety equipment with you, including harnesses. From there, carefully set your ladder and climb up. Once you are on top, any serious damage will be visible so pay close attention. If the problem is minor, such as loose roof tiles, feel free to safely fix it yourself if you know what to do.
