By the time a roof is actively leaking, it’s probably been damaged for quite a while so it’s vital to keep up with regular inspections. Tell-tale signs can include dark spots on the ceiling interior, peeling paint near roof overhangs, damp areas by the fireplace, and water stains on the pipes.

Rust Treatment And Rust Repairs
Help prevent rust by ensuring your roof has an intact protective coating. If there is already rust on your roof, it will not stop if left untreated. It’s important to attend to it early. Rust will eat away at the roof, creating cracks and holes until it leads to irreparable damage.
Here are 11 Signs Your Roof Needs Repairing Or Replacing
Roof re-coating is a cost effective and incredible efficient way to transform a rusty roof and make it look like a brand new aluminium roof. It provides an excellent amount of protection to large roofs with surface rust while keeping the costs down. We use a bitumen/aluminium mix that lasts a great deal longer than any standard acrylic paint.

Flashing And Sheet Replacement
Flashing is sheet metal that protects joints, edges, and breaks in your roof. Damaged or improperly installed roof flashing, especially around a chimney, is one of the most common causes of roof leaks. Once you notice there’s an issue with flashing, it’s a race against time – every new weather event could make the situation worse.
Skylight Repairs And Replacement
Damage or ageing of a skylight can lead to leaks and make your home less energy-efficient. Although some repairs can be done by an experienced homeowner, skylight repair or replacement should be left to professionals. A small crack or leak in a skylight can easily turn into a much larger issue, and trying to do it yourself may lead to more expense in the end. We can investigate your leak to determine the cause and suggest the most secure and cost effective solution.
Silicon can be used to create a silicone restoration membrane on almost any existing roof system. Benefits of using silicone include: time and cost savings, extended roof life, and reduced energy expenses.
