Maintenance and repairs to roofs

by

Your roof is your home’s number one defence against the elements. No part plays a bigger role in keeping the elements out, so when a roof requires a repair, there’s little time to waste.
Why it’s important: A leaking roof can cause serious damage to your home. Failing to address leaks right away can significantly raise the cost of roofing repair. That is because once the water breaks through the roof and gets into the house, it can cause damage to timber work and ceilings.
