Unfortunately many homeowners don’t look into getting their house roof repaired until something dramatic happens.

Roof repairs are best handled before they become big issues. If you wait too long to get a minor problem fixed, you can end up with extensive and expensive damage to your property.

The best approach is to be aware of your house roof and its condition and call in an expert like BP Roofing as soon as you notice something like:

  • Cracked, warped or missing shingles or tiles
  • Broken or loose flashing
  • Rust, in the case of metal roofing
  • Leaks inside the home.

Indicators of a leak may include cracked paint, peeling wallpaper or wall coverings inside your home. Discoloured plasterboard or walls can also indicate roof damage.

You should conduct periodic inspections of our house roof to ensure small problems don’t become big ones. If you can’t safely examine your own house roof, then contact a professional to conduct regular inspections and maintenance.

In most cases, a leaky house roof can be repaired and/or restored. Sometimes though it may be necessary to replace the whole roof. This will depend on the extent of the damage to the roof, the age of the roof, as well as the quality of the roofing and its installation.

The best way to determine this is to speak to an expert, who can advise on your specific circumstances.

When it comes to working on your house roof, it’s best left to the professionals.

While it may be tempting to attempt your own DIY, one simple mistake could cost you dearly in the long-run. A poorly installed or repaired house roof can result in damage to your property. More importantly, getting up on your house roof can be extremely dangerous.

Professional roofers such as BP Roofing have extensive training and experience to carry out your roof repair, restoration or installation, safely and to the highest standard.

What you may wish to do yourself, is simple maintenance and inspection tasks including checking your roof condition at the same time you clean out your gutters. However, great care should be taken to do this safely, and appropriate safety measures taken.

How long your house roof lasts will depend on the type of roofing, the quality of materials used and the weather conditions your roofing is subjected to. Generally speaking, a modern roofing system should last at least 20 years. We recommend checking roofing material and installation warranties before deciding on the roof type and roofing company you will use.

There are several factors that should influence which roofing company you decide to choose. Here are some things to consider:

  • How much experience do they have?
  • What qualifications and insurances do they have?
  • What warranties do they offer and for how long?
  • What is included in their quote? What is excluded?
  • Do they plan on reusing any of the existing roofing materials?
  • Will they dispose of any materials they remove?
  • How long will it take to install/repair?
  • Do they have any testimonials?
