A roof forms an important part of a property. Unless well taken care of it will deteriorate and fail. Replacing a roof has huge financial consequences and you might not be in the position to do so.
It’s a matter of fact that roof structures deteriorate over time. Wood eating bugs make a feast of the timber and then the rotting of wood is also possible. When the consultant entered the roof there was found that there was quite some damage to the roof structure.
The roof structure is compromised because of the weakening of the timber. Tiles are beginning to bulge which means that openings between them started to occur. Water will enter the roof and cause unnecessary damage.
|Broken timber needs to be replaced|
Water entry to the roof will result in the rotting of the structure and the forming of mould. Left in this situation will lead to the replacement of it in its entirety later on. The forming of mould, on the other hand, has medical consequences. Both these cases will be costly to rectify.
Suggestion to remedy the situation
Open up the roof by removing the tiles where the structure needs to be worked on. Replace or strengthen the roof structure by attaching new timber to the damaged structure. Replace the Harvey tiles and attach them properly. Make sure waterproofing is correctly done and then paint the roof.
