Roof Services Perth
Unfortunately, there comes a time when even a roof of the highest quality is no longer able to stand up to the extreme weather in Western Australia. There are some options if your roof is no longer sturdy enough to protect the contents of your home or business. A roof that is no longer sturdy is a danger to you and others.
Reroofing is an increasingly popular choice to give new life to an old roof. It is a relatively simple process which involves placing a new roof surface on top of an existing roof. The most important factor when you are considering reroofing your home is the condition of your existing roof. If the frame and supports of the roof are still intact and in good shape, then reroofing is a fast, uncomplicated process. It is also very cost effective since the first supports are still used.
A helpful idea when reroofing is to add a layer of insulation between the old roof and the new roof. This extra layer of insulation will help you save money in two ways. During the powerful heat of summer extra insulation will help keep the heat out and the cold air from air conditioning inside. Conversely, the insulation will keep you warm and comfortable during the winter. Another thing to consider is the addition of whirly birds to help with ventilation and air flow. Because we firmly believe that a self-contained ventilation system like the whirlybird can make a large impact on comfort and environmental consciousness, we at Perth Roofing and Gutters offer our customers a free whirly bird for every $1,500 spent on a roofing project.
Reroofing is an ideal time to consider cosmetic changes to your roof. Switching out tile for metal or vice versa is a common procedure during a reroofing project. Chances are if you are in need of reroofing, there may be some new and very attractive roofing options which were not available when installing the original roof. We can also work with you to create some structural changes to your roof. Reroofing can give your home or business new life and a new look for a fraction of the cost of other roofing options that are available to you.
If you suspect that there is a problem with your roof, it is in your best interest to call Perth Roofing and Gutters for an inspection.
Here are some signs that your roof may need reroofing.
- Your roof shows signs of wear.
- Your roof is over 20 years old.
- You have cracked or missing tiles.
- Vegetation is growing on your roof.
- You see interior evidence of water leaks or water damage.
If you notice one or more of these signs, do not delay in calling us to come out and inspect your roof. This service is free, and you are under no obligation to approve work on your roof. It is always best to err on the side of caution and having your roof professionally inspected will either put your mind at ease or alert you to an issue that you may have had no idea existed. Often people erroneously believe that reroofing is too expensive and then put off calling us. Most, if not all, roofing problems are less costly to fix if you do the repairs right away. No matter the trouble, you can be sure that it won’t fix itself, but we can fix it for you.
