5 Key Signs For Gutter Repairs

Gutters and downpipes are principal accessories of a house that help to drain away roof water during rainfall. Maintaining your gutters not only makes them last longer but also ensures that your home’s foundation remains intact throughout wet periods. Below are 5 signs that you should look for to ascertain that you need gutter repairs.

Sagging Gutters or Downpipes

A gutter becomes weakened when there is heavy downpour due to a large volume of water flowing through it. Gutters made of flexible materials like aluminum and vinyl may easily bend or sag under the large mass of water. Sagging causes water to accumulate at a certain section of the gutter leading to overflows that may damage the foundation.

Leaking

Leaking is a common problem in gutters especially at the joints where gutters connect. This leaking occurs due to the presence of cracks or holes on your gutter. Natural elements like heavy winds and sunlight are common contributors to cracks. It’s highly recommended to seek repair services before the leaking gets out of hand and cause costly damages.

Overflowing water

When water overflows along the length of your gutter, it may be due to the following causes;

•The downpipe and the gutter are too small to handle a large volume of water.
•One section of gutter is sagging.
•The gutter and/or the downpipe are clogged.

Gutter overflow is a big threat to the foundation of your house. Hence you should consult professionals to install a new gutter, fix the sagging one or unclog the gutter. By doing so, you will protect fascia boards and the foundation from water damage.

Stains and paint peeling

Stains and peeling of paint on your gutter are key indicators of water retention. This denotes that your gutter is not properly draining rainwater. Don’t wait for the eventual damage of your foundation. Find professionals like Choice Roof Restoration’s Ipswich gutter repairs service to do the gutter repairs for you at an affordable cost while saving huge damage costs.

Flooding around the foundation

Gutters are designed to direct rainwater from the roof in order to protect your home’s foundation from waterlogging. Therefore, the presence of water pools around the foundation indicates that your gutter system is faulty. It could be as a result of a faulty waterspout or incorrect installation of the gutter.

7 Signs Your Roof Needs Repair

When was the last time you checked your roof? We bet it’s a long time. It’s not always apparent to know when we need a roof replacement. Today our post covers the signs to look for if your roof needs attention. The roof is the most common part of a home that gets damaged. Although there is no need to examine it frequently, it’s good to recognise the warning signs of a damaged roof that needs repair. Read on for signs that your roof needs repair especially during this summer when the weather is quite hot.

Bad looking shingles

If you examine your roof and see cracked, curled, broken or darker than usual, you have to consider replacing all of them. Black sand in the gutters is another sign that the shingles are wearing out thus repairing them will buy your roof sometime.

Wear and tear all over roof objects

When a roof is damaged, the area around the vent pipes, chimney and other roof objects are subject to wear first. Carefully examine these areas, and if there are signs of wear, then it’s possible your roof needs repair to fix the situation and avoid leaks.

Presence of debris around the roof perimeter

These are the small pieces that resemble dark coarse sand. They come from deteriorating shingles. Once you start seeing granules in the yard, landscaping, and the gutter, it means they are coming from the roof.

A leaky roof/light in the internal roof cavity

When you start seeing the internal roof cavity without requiring a torch, it shows that the roof is leaking light. Old tiles or iron sheeting combined with boiling weather conditions during this summer are some of the causes that can lead to a leaky roof. These are definite signs that your roof needs repair.

Peeling and blistering of Exterior and interior paint.

A roof that leaks and moisture may cause the peeling off of the exterior paint. The growth of mildew and mold are also signs that your roof is in dire need of repair.

Visible Signs of Sagging

When you see a roof deck that is sagging in numerous spots or rafters that sag downwards instead of being straight it’s time to check your roof for moisture or visible damage.

A steady Rise in Energy Bills

When you start experiencing a sudden spike on your energy bill, i.e., heating and cooling costs it means that either warm or cold air is leaking through the roof. Every time your bill steadily rises, please check your roof for signs of hole or damages and repair them.

When you’re looking for roof restoration or repair, there is a lot to consider and it can be confusing. Don’t skimp on quality and cost.

Roof Sarking and Blankets – Do You Need It?

Roof sarking/roof blanketing – what is it and do I need it?

Depending on when your home was built, you might or might not have had roof sarking (tiled roofs) or a roof blanket (metal roofs) installed prior to the roof covering being laid. The majority of roofing contractors will include this in their price, however it is not mandatory to install, and a cheap or less professional installer may choose to skip this step.

At Choice Roof Restoration, we’re here to let you know why you should check if you’ve had it done or not, and the problems it can lead to if you don’t.

Tiled Roofs

Sarking, also called sisalation paper, is designed to keep water and debris seeping through your tiles and into your roof cavity. Some newer models of sarking also have heat reflection options that can add to the effect of insulation.  Tile roof sarking is a foil that is laid over the top of the roof structure from large rolls and kept in place by tile battens that are screwed in. The purpose of this is to add protection from outside elements such as rain, snow, and other debris if a tile or tiles should come loose and leave gaps.

Unfortunately, here in QLD, we are known for our major storm season. These storms can cause the roofing tiles to lift up and allow water, leaves, dirt etc to get through. Without roof sarking, it will end up pooling inside your roof cavity. If you have sarking installed, the rain and other debris will be reflected off and end up being diverted into your gutters. This keeps it outside rather than inside your house and causing issues such as ceiling sagging and mould.

It’s issues like these that make regular roof inspections very important, and a job that Choice Roof Restoration QLD take seriously. If a loose or broken tile/tiles are left unchecked, it can cost you a lot more money in the future to not only repair the roof, but also any damage that has occurred within your house as a result.

Metal Sheet Roofing

Metal roofs are, more often than not, installed with a roof blanket or foil under the sheeting. However, with this type of roof, the blanket is more designed to reduce noise inside the house, rather than a strong weather repellant. Depending on your budget, you can choose a roof blanket for noise reduction or a foil for heat reflection. Roof blankets come in several thicknesses, most with a foil facing. The all-foil products can end up being a little pricier but in hot climates is probably the better option for reducing heat inside your house.

If you suspect your roof may not have this level of protection, why not contact us today? Not only can we check the condition of your roof, but we can also talk with you about the options available.

Repair or Restore Your Roof?

Sooner or later, every owner of a house asks the question: repair or restore my roof? Dependant on the current condition of your roof, it may not be the easiest question to answer. Unless you have knowledge in this area, it can be very hard to tell. That is why it is always the safest option to consult with experts in roofs such as the team at Choice Roof Restoration. Most reputable companies are more than happy to offer a free, no-obligation quote.

Once you have decided on repairing or restoring your roof, there are steps to take to make sure you get it right the first time. If you’ve employed a specialist company for the job, you can ask them about their processes and materials, to make sure they’re doing the best job possible for you.

 Choose the best quality Roofing Materials

Deciding on the best roofing material helps you avoid frequent maintenance and/or repairs in the foreseeable future. Selecting the right materials for your climate is extremely important, as well as the appearance you want. A good roofing company will go through all the benefits and drawbacks of materials available.

Opt for Modern Materials

Modern roof materials available today may cost a little bit more, but they’re also lighter to handle, more durable in harsh weather conditions and have a longer lifespan. This makes them more cost-effective over a longer period of time when you restore the roof.

Get Regular Roof Inspections

If you live in a relatively stable climate, then an inspection every couple of years should be sufficient. If you live in an area prone to extreme conditions such as cyclones, severe electrical storms, or extreme cold,  a yearly roof inspection is your safest option. This will mean problems are found and rectified before they get serious and expensive.

Keep Your Roof Clear and Clean

It is recommended that your roof should be checked for mould, moss and mildew approximately every six months to a year, or after a weather event when a lot of debris has fallen. If these are allowed to remain on your roof, they can eat into the materials and end up shortening the lifespan of your roof.

Colouring or Painting

For tiled or iron sheeting roofs, use the most durable outdoor, specialist roof paint. This ensures the strongest, toughest and longest-lasting protection.

Employ A Specialist
