Why You Should Replace Your Tiled Roof

With the winter season fast approaching, it’s almost sure that you don’t want to have rainwater making its way into your home. If you’ve been wondering about the state of your old tiled roof, then perhaps it’s time to properly assess your roofing situation and be proactive before something terrible happens.

Older tile roofs that have been hard worn by Adelaide’s climate can pose a pretty significant threat to your home. If furniture damage, high heating bills and indoor-rain don’t sound like your cup of tea, then you should consider swapping out your old tile roof as soon as possible!

Don't Wait Until It's Too Late

Some people keep putting off tending to their roof because, well, it’s a somewhat tedious job.

The problems usually start following a big storm. You’ll be tucked up in the comfort of your own home when some tiles will be thrown from the roof or cracked by flying debris. You’ll start to hear a faint dripping from upstairs as the water penetrates inside. Worry starts to rightfully grow in your belly as you realise what’s going on.

To make matters worse, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’re not the only one in Adelaide with a creaky roof, so when bad weather hits, roofers will be in pressing demand.
When it comes to roofing, prevention is the best medicine. If you have any reason to suspect that your roof may need repair or replacement, do yourself a favour and have it seen to by a qualified roofing specialist before disaster strikes. You’ll avoid a whole host of problems from mild carpet damage to a full-blown electrical meltdown.

Disaster-Avoidance Aside, There Are Many Other Reasons to Switch

If you’re the kind of person that’s hard to convince about swapping out your tiled roof for a steel roof, then there are a few more reasons why you should consider going for it.
In a time-pressed world, steel roofs dramatically reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep them in good shape. With steel roofing, you can free up time and pleasurably spend it rather than being up on a ladder, clearing grot between tiles.

Steel roofing also offers better insulation during Adelaide’s hot summer days. The premier material for steel roofing, Colorbond Steel, is available in over twenty shades and can adequately reflect the powerful UV rays away from your home. The result is that not only is your home a more comfortable temperature year-round, but you’ll probably end up lowering your energy bill too.

Tiled roofs look beautiful and perform to an acceptable level for a good few years. However, when it comes to the performance and aesthetics that a steel roof can offer, tiled roofing pale in comparison.
Steel roofing from Old Port Roofing, is still the top choice for roofing in Adelaide. If you would like to discover more about steel roofing can benefit your home or business, then don’t hesitate to give us a call.
