Keeping your Roof in Good Repair

Your home is probably your largest asset so it stands to reason that keeping it in good repair is vital.

Roofs are an issue for some homeowners owing to the fact that they’re not easy to access; however, there are certain ways of checking the state of your roof’s repair without actually getting on it on a regular basis.

What to Look Out For

Missing or damaged tiles need to be remedied immediately or you may find that water will access your loft space and that can lead to a whole host of problems including damp and mould.

How to Carry Out an Interior Check

A thorough check of the interior of your roof can be made quite easily as long as your attic is accessible; if any issues are apparent, seek the advice of a professional.

Look for the following tell-tale signs.

  • Sagging
  • Dark patches
  • Water marks
  • Visible sunlight

All of these issues could cause long-term damage to your home and if you do become aware of any of them, it is important to get them repaired as soon as possible. If you have any concerns about your roof or know that you need a repair, get in touch with Loftworld today.
