Wellington Tile roof repairs

Tiled roof repairs in Wellington.

  Tile roof repairs in Wellington, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt. Tiled roofing offers a number of distinct benefits over other roof coverings. Due to their solid construction, tiles can last in excess of one hundred years. They withstand attack against pests and the corrosive effects of Wellington’s harsh climate. Tiled roofing provides better thermal and acoustic properties over metal and shingle coverings. With only a small amount of maintenance, you can save yourself money and increase the lifespan of your building. Give me a call or fill in the roofing estimate form below for your free quote. 

 

Roof survey

Take a good look at your roof and look for broken, cracked or loose tiles. This is often best done from inside the lofts space. During bright sunshine cracks will become easier to notice from inside the loft. Similarly, slipped tiles will be easy to spot from such a close proximity.

From the outside give the roofing cement a good inspection. You can safely do this from the ground. Loose or cracked mortar is often a cause of leaks and early roof failure. If the roofing cement requires attention it should be repointed as soon as possible to avoid leaks.

Roof Leaks

Tile roof leaks. Roof leaks are not only extremely annoying; they cause an unhealthy damp environment within your home. Leaks should be dealt with as soon as you notice them. This will prevent serious damage to the buildings structure and save you money on repairs. Give me a call and I will provide you with a free quote to permanently stop that leak.

 

Roof Moss

It is a good idea to remove any moss from your roof. This is particularly important with clay tiles. Moss may cause the surface of the clay to delaminate and fail prematurely. Concrete tile roofing will not suffer any damage to the surface, but moss and Lichen will hold water on the roof. Moss may also block the connecting channels between tiles. In severe cases this can cause the channels to become blocked resulting in leaks. A good spray with a fungicidal treatment every 3 to 5 years should prevent any damage.
 

Roof painting

With age, concrete tiles can become faded and loose their original colour. Although this in no way affects the tiles ability to shed water you may wish to have your roof painted for aesthetic reasons. As with all painting work, preparation is the key to an attractive and durable finish. Money spent on expensive paint will be wasted if the roof surface has not been properly repaired.
