When it comes to roof repairs in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton, Oates Roofing Maintenance never do things by halves, unless of course that’s what the clients wants and Needs!
Such was the case on a recent project we completed. After a thorough inspection of the roofing sections on the home, it was decided the best course of action was to replace half the roof, as the other half of the roof was in good condition and didn’t need any attention. We certainly didn’t do things by halves when it came to replacing the roofing section and the client will have a great looking roof, free from leaks or any other hassles, for many years to come.
Roof repairs in Carlton
Whether you live in Carlton or any other suburb of Melbourne, roof repairs is a fact of life. Like any other component on your home, your roof will need attention at some stage. Whether you have a roof with a common material such as concrete tiles or metal such as Colorbond, or a roof with slate, concrete, terracotta tiles or another material, the sun, rain, hail, wind and other elements will eventually take its toll.
What items on your Carlton roof may need repairing? Let’s take a look at the common ones:
- A tiled roof is the most common type of roof in Carlton and Melbourne and for good reason. It’s stylish and durable, but that doesn’t mean the humble tiled roof doesn’t have issues. Tiles crack and break and therefore need replacing, and re-bedding and repointing of a tiled roof is another common roof repair job. In addition, moss can build up on a tiled roof and will need professional cleaning.
- The other most common roof type in Carlton is the metal roof, which like tiles is generally reliable and durable. In fact, a metal roof can last for decades without a single issue. But eventually roof repairs will need to be carried out, whether it’s a small job like replacing a single sheet of metal or a complete replacement.
- Gutters, like roofs, can last for years without an issue, but they will rust and degrade over time and need attention. Of course, the most common issue with most gutters is simply that they need cleaning or unblocking to remove debris. While this is a common job, it’s also an important one, because blocked gutters can cause overflows that can cause damage to your home and to your roof.
- Other roof repairs that are commonly required in Carlton and Melbourne include downpipe replacement, roof cleaning, repairing of flashing and complete reroofing (even if it is only half a roof like our recent clients!).
