The cold, wet and windy weather we’ve been experiencing lately in Melbourne is making life a little tough for most of us, but you should also spare a thought for your roof. While your roof is made to withstand the elements, extreme conditions can take its toll and eventually lead to roof leaks.

In this blog we’ll look at how the Melbourne weather – both hot and cold – can impact your roof and potentially result in roof leaks. We’ll also look at what you can do to protect your roof and reduce the chances of issues down the track.

So, let’s look at the pros and cons of reroofing versus restoring your Melbourne roof.

5 Reasons to Get Your Roof Inspected

Considering you rarely see your roof from above, it can be easy to forget about. It is also hard for the untrained eye to be able to determine its condition just from looking at it. Roof replacements can be costly for home and business owners. Having routine roof inspections will mean avoiding expensive roof replacements and repairs in the future, as often a small inexpensive issue can turn into a large problem. If you are looking to buy a home, a roof inspection should be carried out along with a house inspection to ensure it is in safe and good condition.
