With any roof – no matter what type – if you have a leak, then you have a problem
Age is one of the most obvious factors that affects a roofs lifespan. yet it is one that many homeowners often overlook. Every roof has an expected lifespan, which will vary depending on the factors such as weather conditions and materials used. If your roof is starting to look a little old and tired, it may be time for an upgrade.
Lack of Maintenance
Every roof will require some maintenance from time to time – especially after bad weather. For examples, roof tiles can slip and ridge tiles may need repointing. You should always use an experienced roofing contractor in order to ensure the work is completed to a professional standard.
Poor Ventilation or Insulation
If your roof space is badly ventilated, it could lead to complications. Poor ventilation can cause a build-up of heat and moisture which is trapped with nowhere to go. In turn, this can weaken the roof structure or cause damage to the roof surface.
Flashing acts as a seal between the joints of the roof, helping to keep water out and preventing leaks. If your flashing has deteriorated, or has been installed incorrectly, water can enter your roof and potentially cause damage over time.
Faulty workmanship massively increases the likelihood of problems and reduces a roofs life expectancy. This tends to be one of the more common reasons for problems that crop up at some point in the life of the roof.
