The Importance of a Well-Maintained Roof

When you consider the amount of money that you’ve invested in buying your home or business premises, it’s undoubtedly worth devoting a little more time to think about how important it is to keep your roof in a well-maintained state.

In Adelaide, we’ve seen thousands of dollars wiped-off the face value of properties because the owners neglected to maintain their roofing carefully. Without a doubt, your roof is one of the most critical aspects of your home. Given that it’s constantly exposed to the elements and acts as a barrier to keep your family, your home or business and its contents safe and sound throughout the year, let’s look at a few reasons why it’s worth considering keeping your roof in tip-top shape.


Enhanced Safety

A poorly maintained roof will start to degrade far sooner than one that is looked after. When your roof starts to break down, you risk having small cracks and holes appearing in your roof. When this happens, water and moisture can permeate into your house and cause a whole host of problems. A Leaky roof can do immense damage to your home’s electrical systems. Water damage to walls and interior roofs can also end up costing you a small fortune to repair.

If that wasn’t bad enough, moisture seeping in from the outside could facilitate the growth of hazardous moulds and fungi which pose a severe risk to the house or buildings inhabitants. Additionally, cracks and holes can allow vermin such as mice, rats, birds, spiders and cockroaches to take up residence in your roofing which can lead to costly extermination costs. Lastly, if you own a commercial building, a damaged and warped roof can prove to be an easy weak-point for unscrupulous intruders who can easily make off with your valuable property. I think you’ll agree that none of these sound like more enticing propositions than basic roof maintenance!


Adds Value to Your Home

Not only does maintaining your roofing prevents the damage and stress caused by water damage and infestations, but it also adds significant value to your home. A building with a well-maintained roofing system represents a much more attractive investment than one that is suffering from mould, mildew and water damage problems. While there is a small cost associated with maintaining your roofing, you can be sure that not looking after it will be much-more-expensive in the long-run.


Makes Your Roof Last Longer

It’s unavoidable that at some point all roofs need replacing anyway, but that’s not a valid excuse to avoid maintaining your current one. You can vastly extend the longevity of your roofing by taking care of it. With regular inspections, timely repairs and proper maintenance, you can expect to more than double the lifespan of your roofing system. That means that you get to save both time and money in the long-run.
