Considerations that can Affect Your Roof’s Lifespan.

Your roof is, without doubt, the most important feature of your building, and a well-constructed roof is vital when it comes to guaranteeing that you, your family, and your belongings all stay protected dry, warm. Furthermore, a leaking roof can cause irreversible damage to your building such as:

Creates a breeding ground for mould and bacteria

Causes damage to ceilings and coverings

Causes damp insulation materials

Causes damage to partition walls

Acceleration of the age of the roof

Insect infestation

A roof lifespan can vary depending on various factors.

Understanding this can help ensure the best product is chosen for each project. Some of the issues to consider include:

  • Sun- prolonged periods of strong sun can cause cracking and breakage of certain types of roof tiles.
  • Wind-strong wind can wreak havoc with your roof, damaging roof tiles, and potentially causing the need for repairs
  • Rain-If your roof is not watertight, rainwater could make its way through the weakest areas and could contribute to moisture-related problems like damp and rot.
  • High levels of pollution in the atmospheric conditions
  • High impact cleaning (such as pressure washing)
  • Incorrect Installation e.g. walking directly on the roof, without the use of platforms or crawl boards.
  • Trees overhanging your roof, you should check for any signs of damage, particularly in high winds
  • Roofing Material-different roof materials suit different conditions, and each material has its own unique list of advantages
