If anything, you can only truly see it clearly if you grab a ladder take the time to climb up on roof of the house – like in the case of a minor leak. Roof painting and roof restoration isn’t just required if your roof looks faded or has some lichen or mould on it.
Even though some homeowners may consider ignoring it, it should go without saying that any responsible homeowner ought to be on the front line taking timely measures to have the condition of their roof inspected on a regular basis, especially when the roof is over ten years old. This can ensure their home of longevity, including undertaking prompt roof repairs, roof painting and roof restoration as needed.
At the end of the day, your roof is the first line of defence against weather, such as winds, scorching sun, The Lakes storms, etc. Talking of which, regular roof painting The Lakes is not only one of the easiest ways of maintaining the state of a roof but also cost effective compared to other alternatives such as a full structural replacement.
Roof Painting The Lakes Residential and Commercial Properties
That said, here is a quick overview of the often commonly overlooked benefits of hiring a professional The Lakes roof painter occasionally.
Extends the Life of Your Roof
There’s no refuting that regularly applying a protective coating of your roof and making an effort to maintain with regular repainting prevents water ingress and also coming into direct contact with the roofing material, whether metal (iron sheets), tiles or otherwise. Keep it in the back of your head that water is considered to be among the most damaging and corrosive natural elements a homeowner must deal with. Hence, it is worth investing a significant effort in keeping this at bay.
Prevents Repeated Rusting and Corrosion
Despite what most people think, rust does more damage to your tin roof than simply lowering its aesthetics value. Firstly, rust is a form of oxidation it has the ability to eat through the roofing structure and weakening its mechanical make-up. Which, of course, explains why badly rusted roofs don’t generally hold up for more than a couple of winter seasons. Secondly, with rust comes several leakages, holes and splits which only serve to allow the ingress of water especially during a heavier downpour. In more severe cases, this water may make its way to the ceiling and or metal structure underneath and weaken it as well. Even worse, it may also encounter some of the most vulnerable parts of your home such as the electrical junctions and wiring, insulation or the woodwork. For the latter, a termite or other timber pest infestation can often quickly follow.
Removes unsightly Stains and Improves your Property’s Resale Value
Potential home buyers will always calculate a home’s aesthetic worth, as well as its perceived and functional value. This is the reason you will have a harder time selling an un-impressionable home, even though it may be in an upscale part of the town. As discussed earlier, there is nothing that adds that enticing glamour to your residential or commercial property than a fresh coat of roofing paint. The boldness of a freshly painted roof will attract potential buyers in their droves to your doorstep if you’re looking to sell, or will have you the envy of the street if you are settled in for the long haul. Either way, with the roof maintenance complete and a fresh coat of paint, you will have nothing to worry about for years to come, just a gutter cleaning once a year and our guys will inspect the roof while we are on site so you have nothing to worry about at all.
