Worried about roof problems? Whether it is a bad storm or a poorly maintained roof, you may be worried about problems on your roof. Fortunately, at CP Construction Solutions we have put together three common roof problems you can look out for to ensure that your roof can be fixed as quickly as possible.
Loose and Missing Tiles
In bad storms or big gusts of wind, it is not uncommon for roof tiles to become loose or fall off. While this can be a common occurrence, it is vital that you get the problem fixed quickly to ensure that your property doesn’t suffer from any further damage. The best way to identify if you are missing tiles is to stand outside your home and look at the roof. By looking at your roof, you should be able to quickly identify if your home is missing any roof tiles. However, if there are areas you cannot see, you may want to ask a neighbour if they have spotted any loose or missing tiles, as they may have a better view from their home, particularly from upstairs rooms.
Your guttering is an integral part of your roof, not only does it channel water away from running down your home, but it also prevents water ingressing into the fabric of your building. If the water manages to ingress the fabric of the building, it can lead to problems such as damp, mould and rot in your home, so it is important to efficiently identify any problems with your guttering. If you are already struggling with damp in your home, check out our last article on stopping damp in houses.
Blocked gutters can be caused by a range of things including leaves, debris and even dead animals. If your gutters become blocked, they can no longer channel the water from your home, this makes blocked guttering one of the easy roof problems to identify. As the gutter no longer channels the water, you will notice water running down the outside of your house. If this is the case, you should have the blockage removed by a professional to ensure that the problem is properly resolved.
A sagging roof is incredibly easy to identify because, as the name would suggest, you will see visible bowing in the line of your roof. Fortunately, this is not necessarily as catastrophic as it may first seem, however it is important that you have the problem checked to ensure that it does not damage your home.
In many older buildings, a sagging roof can add character, but if the roof becomes unstable the sagging is a real issue. If the shape of the roof continues to change then it the problem could be serious, and can even be an indication of serious structural problems. Whether your property is brand new or incredibly old, if you’ve noticed sagging on your roof you must have your roof inspected. If there is a problem with your roof, or the building structure, an expert from CP Construction Solutions can advise you on how it could be fixed and implement the required changes.
