Every roof ages over time. Roof restoration offers a cheaper alternative to roof replacement since you don’t have to replace the entire roof. By having your roof restored it will increase its lifespan. A quality restoration by KTM Exteriors will ensure that your roof looks as good as new.
A roof restoration usually includes some minor repairs of worn sections of the roof. Restoration will not only upgrade the roof functionality but its aesthetics too. In addition to being cost-effective, restoring your roof is environmentally friendly and is sometimes a better alternative to roof replacement. So, if your commercial or residential roof requires more than a few repairs, it is worth approaching KTM to consider having your roof restored.
A quality roofing system will ensure your residential or commercial roof can withstand harsh weather conditions such as torrential rain, intense sun, and hailstorms. Older roofing systems can result in leaks and mold growth which can have a devastating effect on your property. There are a number of situations where you may want to consider a roof restoration:
Leaks in the Ceiling
The first indication of a roof that requires immediate restoration is when it leaks and forms dark spots or moisture trails on the ceiling. Leaks may also compromise your home’s interior through water damage, resulting in mold and rot growing on your ceiling.
Your Roof is Old
The average roof has a lifespan of between 20-25 years. However, the duration may vary depending on the roof material used. If your roof has come close to the end of its life, you may want to consider a restoration, as continual roof repairs will be expensive in the long run.
Roof is Sagging
Another sure sign of a damaged roof is when sagging occurs. If you notice a low spot in your roof, a restoration should be considered as it’s likely that your roof rafters are damaged.
Roof Valleys are Damaged
Deteriorating roof valleys need to be attended to immediately. Check for loose or worn-out material around the vents, chimney, pipes, and gutters.
Otherwise known as rust, corrosion indicates that water is deteriorating either the roofing material, the roof fasteners and/or roof fittings. If you spot rust, rotting timber, or flaking paint, a certified roofing company such as KTM Exteriors can conduct a roof inspection and evaluate the level of roof damage done.
Mold on the Roof
Mold growth on the roof may result in hazardous health effects. Mold growth is a clear-cut sign that you should attend to your roof immediately. Mold is easy to notice due to its unpleasant smell and slimy appearance. It is characterized by brown, black, or dark-green splotches.
Ruined Downpipes and Gutters
Gutters and downpipes create a path for water to prevent it from damaging roofing, siding, fascia, and walls. If your gutters and downpipes are corroded or have cracks, holes, or loose fasteners, perform a quality inspection to assess if any damage is present.
Worn or Cracked Roof Flashing
If the cement or tar flashing on your roof looks missing, cracked, or worn-out, they should be replaced with new metal flashing. In addition to preventing leaks, it will enhance the roof's lifespan, and delay a premature roof replacement.
Broken or Cracked Tiles
Ensure that you remove tiles or shingles that are broken, cracked or porous and replace them as soon as possible. If individual tiles become damaged, it can cause water to drip in. If left unrestored, it can lead to rotting timber, and increase the cost of roof repairs or replacement.
Besides boosting your home or buildings safety, a roof restoration enhances its aesthetic appeal. Below are some benefits of having your roof restored.
Prevent Leaks and Future Damage
Without proper roof maintenance and care, your roof will likely be affected by harsh weather and falling debris. This damage may result in leaks that may be catastrophic to your property’s health. A quality roof restoration will ensure that your roof remains in top condition, and will eliminate the need for a complete replacement.
During restoration, your roofing contractor will remove and replace any broken shingles and re-nail loose ridge caps and shingles.
Improve Energy Efficiency in Your Home
If your roof is poorly maintained and run down, there will be excess airflow in and out of the roof cavity. Heating and cooling costs can quite literally go through the roof! Prevent costly airflow through the roof with a quality roof restoration and cut down on energy costs. Besides washing your hard-earned money down the drain, you’ll also be doing the environment a favor.
Extend the Roof’s Lifespan
Roof restoration adds years to your roof’s lifespan. You won’t need to worry about further damage, leaks, or the safety of your property for years to come. KTM Exteriors will ensure that your roof remains in good condition for decades after a restoration process.
Enhance The Value Of Your Home
Besides guaranteeing the appearance and safety of your home, a good restoration undoubtedly increases its market value. If you plan to sell or rent your home, don’t put off buyers or tenants with a roof that requires repair. With roof restoration, you will increase the chances of finding a buyer for a higher price.
