Homeowners in South East Queensland are all too familiar with the seasonal thunderstorms in the spring and summer months.
Brisbane also lies in the Tropical Cyclone risk area and, although cyclones are rare, the ones that hit are known to cause tremendous damage.
Torn roofs and felled trees are a common occurrence.
Even the strongest metal roof is no match for a severe hail storm.
As a homeowner, it is important to know what to do in the event a tree has fallen, otherwise you have storm damage that will ultimately require emergency roof repair.
A roof that is damaged is at the mercy of dangerous elements, such as torrential rain and strong winds.
Any repair work should be done before further rain arrives. Failing to do so could result in structural damage to the rest of the house, therefore incurring higher costs.
Inspect Your Roof
As a general rule, it is important to check your roof at least once a year, especially if you have experienced severe storms or hail in recent times.
Regardless of the type of roof, it is still exposed to the elements and if it remains unchecked, you could be overlooking small problems that could get out of hand quickly.
Inspect your roof, make note of any obvious signs of damage and contact Homestyle Roof Painters right away for emergency roof repair.
Our experts will fully assess your roof’s condition and carry out the necessary repairs.
Do a Preliminary Check
Start indoors and check your ceilings and walls for signs of water damage. Mould, discolouration, or blistered surfaces are tell-tale signs of leaks.
Go outdoors and check the surface of the ground that is under your roof.
Signs of broken or crumbling tiles indicate your roof has damaged tiles which makes it vulnerable to leaks.
Walk around the perimeter of your property and examine the shape of your roof.
A saggy or misshapen roof can indicate problems with the supporting roof structure.
