How Do I Know If I Need Roofing Repairs?

All too often, roof system problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic inspections often uncover many visible signs of roofing problems before any of this unfortunate damage can take place. If indoors, look for cracked paint, discoloured plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas. For definitive answers, talk to the friendly team at Hornby Roofing. In addition, there are also a set list of factors to look out for when assessing your roof for future damage:
  • Sun – Heat and ultraviolet rays cause roofing materials to deteriorate over time. Deterioration can occur faster on the sides facing directly into the strong Hawke’s Bay sun we are so well known for.
  • Rain – When water gets under roofing materials, it can work its way to the roof deck and cause the roof structure to rot. Extra moisture also encourages mildew and rot elsewhere in a house.
  • Leaves and Trees – Tree branches touching a roof will scratch and gouge roofing materials when the branches are blown by the wind. Falling branches from overhanging trees can also damage roofing.
  • Wind – High winds can lift edges of roofing materials and force water and debris underneath them. Extremely high winds can cause extensive damage.
  • Condensation – Condensation can result from the build-up of relatively warm, moisture-laden air. Moisture in a poorly ventilated attic promotes decay of wood possibly destroying a roof.

Should I Completely Replace a Leaking Roof?

Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged. 

A complete roof system failure, however, generally is irreversible. We can also check if it’s a result of improper installation or the wrong choice of materials.

What Are My Options If I Decide to Re-Roof?

You have two basic options; You can choose a complete replacement of the roof system, or a partial replacement to the existing roof where needed.

Can I Do Roofing Work Myself?

Most work should not be done yourself. Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace roof systems. You can damage your roof system by using improper roofing techniques.
