Roof Repair Canberra

There is a human trait that is common with most of us, and that is the belief that if we ignore a problem, it will get better by itself.
 
Unfortunately, as much as we might wish that to be true, it very often isn’t. Usually, if we ignore a problem, the problem gets worse.
 
This is especially the case with your roof. If you’ve noticed a problem with your roof – a leak, or missing tiles or shingles – ignoring it will not make it go away. Usually, ignoring it will actually mean that the missing shingles turns into a leak, or the leak gets worse and worse, causing more damage on your roof over a larger area.

In fact, if you ignore the leak for too long, it may not even be possible to simply repair the roof. The damage might have become so widespread that you need a roof restoration, or even a roof replacement, and that costs a lot more than a simple repair.

At ACT Now Roofing Canberra, we take your roof seriously. We hope you do too. As soon as you notice that there is something wrong with your roof, you should call us. We will inspect your roof and consult with you as to the best course of action for you going forward. Early action is crucial to avoid even bigger roof repair, restoration or replacement bills.
 
But what if you don’t know what you are looking for? Some signs that your roof might need repairing are obvious – a trickle of water dripping into your attic, is an obvious one, or tiles or shingles from your roof lying in your back yard after a storm is another one – but finding the less obvious signs might require a little more investigation.

​We go into more detail on our main page here, under the section ‘Are There Things I Can Look Out For To Determine Whether My Roof Might Need To Be Looked At’ if you want to understand more, but for this page, we’ll list out some things you can check to see if your roof might require a repair. Some of these might require a ladder, so if you are not supremely confident in your ability to climb up and down a ladder and to work at heights, we would ask you to instead call us for an inspection. We do not want you hurting yourself.

  1. If you have shingles, check your gutters for black sandlike substance, which occurs when shingles begin wearing out.
  2. Do you have missing shingles? Are they cracked? Do you see any curled at the edges?
  3. Do your shingles look damp, dark and dirty?
  4. Do you see corrosion or rust in your roof valleys?
  5. Do you see moss buildup in the cracks between your roofing material?
  6. In your attic or roof crawl space: Do you see moisture stains on the ceiling?
  7. Still in the attic or crawl space: Do you see sunlight coming through cracks and holes in the ceiling?
  8. One more for the attic or crawl space: Can you see any sagging wooden beams or rafters?
  9. Is your roof just … old?
