Just like your car needs its annual MOT, your roof needs regular inspections too. Strong and built to last for decades, over time, roofs will eventually start showing signs of deterioration. However, before you thinking you may have to have an entirely new roof, you should consider tile roof coating instead.
An alternative to roof replacement?
Compared to tile roof replacement cost, roof coating prices are but a fraction. For this reason, it is worthwhile to consider having your roof repaired and a coating solution applied instead of replacing it. The savings you can make are substantial, both in case terms and resources. Here are a few reasons why you should consider roof coating before a complete roof replacement:
- Unless your roof has caved in, there’s generally never a need for a complete roof replacement.
- Roof coating costs less than replacement.
- Most roofing problems can be solved with repairs and a coating applied to prolong life.
- Roofs are modular structures which have a very long lifespan if maintained correctly.
What should you do if your roof is in need of repair?
It is often the case that homeowners put off getting work done to fix their roofs. Unless there is a gaping hole or water entering the house, many homeowners will not take any action until it becomes an emergency. When it comes to roofs, this is the wrong approach to take.
So, if you notice missing tiles or find tiles lying on the ground especially after a storm, contact a roofer for a roof inspection. It is often the case that a missing tile may be the start of more damage to your roof, hence the need to act fast.
