Roof repairs in Adelaide: Making Your Roof Like New Again
Roof restoration is a multifaceted process with several steps involved, each one of which treats a specific issue. The end result of this process? A fully restored roof that looks like brand new.
Here’s how it works:
First, the Rite Price Roofing team will perform a thorough inspection to identify every issue that is affecting your roof. During this inspection, we’ll make note of problems like broken tiles, loose flashing, leaky flues, rusted metal, and other issues that aren’t entirely obvious at first glance.
Next, we’ll use a gentle pressure wash to remove dirt, debris, moss, grime, and dust from your roof. This step is a 100% natural wash that doesn’t involve any chemicals whatsoever just pure, fresh water.
After we’re satisfied that your roof is clean, we’ll look at the ridge caps. If necessary, we’ll re-bed them in new concrete to create a straight line.
We’ll re-point your roof’s ridge caps with pointing mortar and seal them to be watertight. If we find any broken tiles or loose panels, we’ll attach new panels or tiles.
If you have a metal roof, we’ll apply a special anti-rust agent to the panels before fixing them to your home.
For tile roofs, we use a gripped primer to ensure they adhere properly and a set of two or more acrylic coats to protect your roof from the elements.
Our roofing professionals will do final Roof cleaning and inspection, addressing anything that may have been overlooked.
Once we’re satisfied that your roof is fully restored, you’ll receive your warranty and service information.
Ridge Capping: For a Beautiful, Well-Sealed Roof
The ridge caps on your roof are the long, angled pieces that bond and protect the joints where the slopes meet at the highest points of the roof.
Sometimes, weather conditions can cause cracks in the mortar that is used to hold ridge caps in place which means when the rainy season arrives, you’ll undoubtedly see leaks.
Leaving a broken or cracked ridge cap as-is will undoubtedly result in damage to the interior surface of your roof, which is why it’s important to address this issue promptly.
If your ridge caps are cracked, broken or deformed, your roofing contractor will recommend a ridge capping to replace the defective caps and seal your roofs joints.
During a ridge capping, your Adelaide roofing professional will remove any cracked, broken, or deformed ridge caps.
Next, your roofing contractor will re-bed any out-of-place ridge caps in a straight line and re-point them with pointing mortar. Any missing ridge caps will be replaced.
Once the ridge caps are secure, your roofing contractor will apply a coat of sealant or primer to the roof, plus a set of acrylic membrane coats to protect the caps.
The final step is to inspect the new ridge caps for alignment and workmanship, and to ensure they’re securely embedded into the mortar.
Roof Leak Repairs: Fixing This Common Problem
A roof leak is another minor roof issue that can cause serious problems. If left unchecked, a leaky roof could mean your attic becomes infested with rot, mould, and rust.
Eventually, leaks could wear away at your roofs structural integrity and cause parts of it to collapse.
That’s why its important to inspect your roof on a regular basis and have any leaks treated as soon as possible.
The first step in repairing a leaky roof is to find the source of the leak. This isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Although some leaks can come from an opening like a light fixture or heat register, they might also pool onto a depression in your roof. Once you’ve found the source, do whatever you can to stop the leak.
Next, you’ll want to inspect your tiles or sheets to determine if there’s any water damage. If you notice widespread water damage, you’ll want to open up your roof to take a look at the interior.
Look for warping, mould, water marks and other signs of a leak, and replace any materials that have been damaged. After you’ve treated the interior, you’ll want to deal with the exterior.
If only a few spots are showing water damage, you can replace the tiles or metal sheets and then treat and coat them as you normally would.
If, however, you see more widespread problems, you’ll need to talk to a roofing company about a roof replacement.
Roof Repairs & Maintenance: How to Keep Your Roof in Top Shape
Although it may be tempting to simply deal with problems as they arise, you’ll save a significant amount of time and money with regular maintenance and proactive inspections.
Roof maintenance can extend the life of your roof by several years and give you peace of mind. The key to great maintenance is regular inspections.
You’ll want to inspect your roof a minimum of twice per year once in the spring and once in the autumn. Ideally, though, you’ll inspect your roof four times per year that is, with the changing of every season.
The best time to inspect your roof is when you clean your gutters.
While you’re cleaning, you’ll want to look for problems like damaged, missing or warped tiles or sheets. Also pay attention for any build-ups of sticks, leaves, snow, algae, fungus, rust, water, or moss.
Check the flashing to ensure that its tightly affixed to the roof if not, you’ll want to remove all of the caulk, scrub the area, and then re-seal the flashing.
Finally, check around the base of any chimneys and around the joints. If you see any cracked mortar, you’ll want to re-seal them.
Roof Pressure Cleaning: Seasonal Washes Can Work Wonders
Your roof is regularly exposed to all manner of potentially harmful elements, like dust, dirt, smog, pollutants, lichens, and even the chemical trails left by jets flying overhead.
Metal roofs are somewhat immune to this debris the smooth surface prevents adhesion to the surface but tile roofs, both concrete and terracotta, have rough patches that make it easy for these foreign elements to stick to your roof.
That’s why cleaning your roof on a regular basis is critical. When it comes to cleaning your roof, a high pressure wash is a great way to blast away any debris, old paint, lichens, moss, dirt, and other contaminants that may be causing problems.
Ideally, you’ll want to do these pressure cleanings with a gentle solution that won’t damage your roof. Here at Rite Price Roofing, we use a water-only pressure wash with no added chemicals or soaps.
This keeps your roof clean without leaving behind a chemical residue that may cause problems. After a high-pressure water wash from Rite Price, your roof will regain its old shine. If you see any mould, you’ll want to use a rooftop mould killing solution to dispose of it.
If you have a wood roof, you’ll need to use a special solution for sensitive materials.
Here at Rite Price Roofing, we have access to several great solutions for mould that won’t harm your roof. We can apply this mould-killer safely and efficiently.
A professional roof cleaning is a fantastic way to clean your roof, and you’ll see a number of benefits.
First of all, you’ll extend the longevity of your roof and delay replacement.
Second, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your roof is in great shape.
And finally, you’ll see a big improvement in your curb appeal which is great if you’re looking to sell in the near future.
Roof Painting: For Curb Appeal That Won’t Harm Your House
If you’re in the process of doing roof repairs, you’ll want to finish the repairs with a coat of paint in order to protect your roof and give it some great curb appeal.
If you’ve never painted a roof before, though, you’ll need to ensure you’re using the proper kind of paint and the proper technique.
When painting your roof, make sure you use a waterproof heavy-duty acrylic spray paint.
You should be aware that this kind of spray paint isn’t always easy to apply, and over-painting is a frequent consequence of misuse.
If you want to make sure that you don’t get paint on any brick walls or siding, you should start the tiles by hand at the edges.
If you live in an area that is subject to frequent heatwaves, you may also want to look into a heat-reflective paint. Traditional roof paint tends to crack or warp under severe heat, and a heat-reflective paint won’t just stand up to this punishment it will reflect the heat away from your roof to keep your house cooler.
Roof Tile Repairs: Addressing Broken Tiles the Right Way
If you have a tile roof, you’re likely to see a few cracked or chipped tiles at some point.
These broken tiles can be hazardous if a piece of tile falls off your home, it could hit someone standing below.
That’s why replacing them the right way is critical. To do a tile roof repairs, you’ll need two pry bars and a replacement tile.
The two pry bars will be critical for opening up an access point to get to the broken tile.
First, you’ll want to slide a pry bar underneath the tile immediately above and to the right of the tile you’re replacing.
Next, gently elevate the tile on top of your pry bar and the tile to its immediate left. Slide the second pry bar under the tile that is to the left of the tile you want to replace. At this point, you’ve created a means of accessing the broken tile.
Now it’s time to gently remove the broken tile. Lift up the end of the tile and gently slide it out, then slide the new tile into place and remove the pry bars. There are lots of different issues that you may encounter when maintaining your roof, and any number of things can cause damage.
Now that you know some of these basic repair procedures, though, you’ll be in a great place to deal with issues as they arise. Should you encounter a problem that you can’t solve, though, an experienced roofing company can help.
