The Importance of Taking a Proactive Approach to Roof Repairs

Taking a proactive approach to roof repairs will save you money in the long run, and will keep your roof in the right condition to extend its life without frequently having to repair it. 

Since the roof is such an important part of the entire structure of your house, protecting it and your family from the elements, it is one of the most important investments you’ll have made, or will make in your home.

If you live in Cape Town and the surrounding areas, you’ll know all about heavy rain in winter and the gale-force winds that accompany the more severe storms, which makes taking care of your roof something that belongs at the top of your to-do list when it comes to home maintenance.

As such a major investment, it’s well worth contacting the team of professional roofing experts at Empire Roofing to carry out a roof inspection, something that should be at least once a year, to remain on top of roof repairs that may be needed.

This team has over a decade under their belts in the roofing industry in Cape Town, making them a company you can rely on to give you an expert opinion on the state of your roof and which, if any, roof repairs need to be carried out ASAP.

Prevention is better than the cure!

When it comes to keeping your roof in a healthy condition, prevention is definitely better than the cure, and it’s far less costly than having to replace your roof sooner than expected.

It’s a good idea to get the ladder out and give your roof a once-over to see if there are any obvious signs of leaks, cracked tiles, holes in the roof sheeting or the presence of moss, but, it takes real professionals like the experts at Empire Roofing to find problems on the roof that are less obvious to an untrained eye.

One roof leak could lead to a lot of damage!

Even the smallest of roof leaks needs to be taken seriously, because once water has found an ingress into your roof, you could be looking at expensive damage to the roof deck, which in turn, could lead to interior damage to ceilings and walls.

The roof decking, which is the wood or plywood under the tiles or roof sheeting, is fundamental to the condition of your roof; it won’t help to repair roof sheets or tiles if the roof deck is in bad condition, which is why you need experienced roofers to give the entire roof structure a thorough inspection.

If the roof deck or beams supporting the roof are showing signs of water damage, or they’re sagging, you could be looking at having to replace both the roof deck and the tiles or roof sheeting.

Procrastinating about roof repairs can lead to far greater expense than is absolutely necessary to keep your roof in good condition, keeping it strong enough to handle all that mother nature has to throw at it, through each season.

This is why taking a proactive approach to roof repairs is vital, especially in an economy that has seen budgets shrinking dramatically since the advent of the Coronavirus pandemic.
