How to Know When Your Roof Requires Repairs

April 21, 2020

Is your Adelaide roof damaged? It might be, but how would you know? When was the last time you had it inspected?
In the fast-paced life we are living, people rarely think about the condition of the roof above their heads. Although the roof goes through a lot, especially with the extreme weather conditions of Adelaide. A damaged roof can compromise the safety of your family or clients and employees. That is why regular roof repairs and maintenance are not a luxury for property owners.
Here are some signs your Adelaide property requires a professional roof repairs service:
Stains on the Ceilings or Walls
One of the most obvious ways to identify a leaky roof is by noticing wet spots on your ceiling or walls. You might also find puddles of water forming on the floor or in your attic. Without proper roof repairs, this could lead to water damages inside your Adelaide property. Roof leaks could also compromise the integrity of the whole building structure.
The problem is that leaks do not always have visible signs. The small water drops of leaks can get trapped in the insulation. That is why you need to have routine roof repairs and maintenance, even if you do not notice any problems.
Peeling of Paint
Many people are not aware of the extent of damage heat, and humidity could cause to your Adelaide roof. In the summer, you could notice the paint on some roofs being peeled. Internally, mould and mildew could also be signs of heat damage. In this case, roof repairs are not just essential for the look and integrity of your roof. Mould could cause health problems to your family or clients.
Sunlight Coming Through
Holes in your Adelaide roof will not just let rainwater in. Small sparkles of sunlight could also be an indicator of holes in your roof. Although this is a visible sign you need a professional roof repairs service, it usually is overlooked. To check for roof holes, you need to make the rooms and the attic as dark as you can. If you see even small sparkles of light, you need to call a roof repairs service as soon as possible.
Higher Energy Bills
A sudden spike in your electricity bill could be an indicator of roof damage. It could be due to air leaking through your Adelaide roof or the insulation getting weaker. Here, roof repairs will save you money on energy cost.
