While it may be tempting to keep making patch repairs to a faulty roof, in the long term, the cost and benefits or completely re-roofing will often be more cost efficient than the constant repairs. Roof replacements are solid home improvement investments, whether your roof is beyond repairing, or whether you’re just looking for a new contemporary colour to lift the style and value of your home.
2. Re-Gutter & Fascia
Gutters and downpipes are often overlooked in the home maintenance schedule – Yet they are one of the most important components due to the large volume of water that falls on the average Australian roof. Neglecting them means running the risk of major damage through leaks caused by blocked or damaged guttering and downpipes.
Insulation acts as a barrier to heat loss and heat gain, particularly in roofs and ceilings, walls and floors. In many homes insulation is the most practical and cost-effective way to make a house more energy efficient, keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter and saving up to 80% in heating and cooling losses. In addition, insulation may reduce condensation in the home. This can provide health benefits by reducing mould and damp.
4. Roof Ventilation
Roof ventilation makes it easier to keep a home cool. When the temperature of a roof space becomes excessively hot and isn’t ventilated, the hot air has nowhere to go and heat penetrates the ceiling (even if insulated) and starts heating up the house. On particularly hot days, this has the effect of making it difficult to keep the living space cool and makes the air conditioner’s job that much harder.
