Roofing Repair Services

A roof leak isn’t just an annoying problem. If not addressed quickly and professionally, a roof leak can cause serious property damage and lead to dampness and mould, potentially endangering the health of your household. If your roof is in good condition, it provides protection from water, more efficient heating and cooling and gives your home a more appealing appearance, too!

Your home’s roof is critical in preventing water damage to the rest of the building, including the insulation and structural integrity.

Because the consequences of a leak can be serious, we know how important it is for you to have your roof leak fixed quickly by an expert roofer with the necessary experience to get the job done right.

Contact us today for all your roof repair services in or near Lismore.

Gutter Repairs

It’s also important that your gutters are working effectively to maintain the condition of your roof and the rest of your home. Your gutter system should direct excess water to tanks and downpipes, channelling it away from the ground, where it may cause flooding or damage your home’s foundations.

Gutters are prone to damage over time. This can result in leaks that cause water to fall in unsuitable areas. If your gutter system is not working as it should, we can assess whether it can be repaired or offer replacement options.

The natural build-up of leaves, branches and other debris can place excess strain on your gutter and disrupt the desired flow of water. Our Lismore plumbing team can provide solutions like adding leaf guards to your gutters, ensuring that water is not blocked.

Signs That Your Roof Needs Repair

Maintaining a healthy roof is an integral aspect of protecting your property. Neglected roof damage can lead to leaks, decreased energy efficiency and even structural damage over time. Here are key signs that your roof might need repairs:

Damaged or Missing Tiles

Tiles act as the first line of defence against harsh weather. If you notice broken, cracked or missing tiles, seek professional help.

Moss and Algae Growth

While moss or algae growth on your roof might not seem like a pressing issue, it can lead to underlying problems over time.

Increased Energy Bills

A sudden or unexpected increase in your heating or cooling bills might indicate a problem with your roof insulation.

Daylight through Roof Boards

If you notice sunlight peeking through cracks in the roof, it’s a clear sign your roof needs immediate attention. These gaps not only let in light but also potentially allow water and cold air to seep in.

If you observe any of these signs or have other concerns about your roof, don’t hesitate to contact us for a comprehensive inspection and expert advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my roof inspected?

To maintain the integrity and longevity of your roof, biannual inspections are recommended. Typically, these should be carried out in spring and autumn to prepare for summer and winter. This schedule ensures that any damage caused by winter is addressed in a timely manner and that your roof is primed to handle the summer heat. However, it’s also important to conduct inspections after weather events like storms, heavy winds or hail, which can cause immediate and significant damage. Regular roof inspections are an investment in preventive care, often saving you from expenses associated with extensive repairs or replacements.

How do I prevent gutter blockage?

Preventing gutter blockages is integral to the health of your roof and the structural integrity of your home. The most important action is regular cleaning, but there are additional preventative measures that you can follow.

To make your gutters cleaner and prevent debris buildup, you can install gutter guards, which are particularly beneficial in regions with numerous trees. Trimming the trees near your house regularly can also minimise the amount of leaves that end up in the gutters. Additionally, it’s a good idea to frequently inspect and remove any bird nests or debris that may have accumulated in the gutters.

How often should I have my gutters cleaned?

The frequency of gutter cleaning depends on several factors, such as the number of trees near your property, local weather patterns and whether you have gutter guards. A general recommendation is to clean your gutters at least twice a year.

You should clean them once in late autumn after the majority of leaves have fallen and again in late spring to clear any debris buildup. Regular cleaning ensures that your gutters remain unobstructed and can efficiently direct water away from your property.

What are the dangers of blocked gutters?

Blocked gutters can lead to a number of problems for your property. When blocked, water can overflow and seep into the roof or walls, potentially damaging your property’s structure and leading to costly repairs. Additionally, the standing water can serve as a breeding ground for pests and cause the growth of mould and mildew, posing health risks.

In severe cases, blocked gutters can become heavy enough to pull away from your home, leading to additional property damage and potential safety risks. With regular cleaning and maintenance services, you can prevent these issues and keep your gutter system functioning optimally.

How can I tell if my gutters are not working properly?

There are several indicators that your gutters may not be working properly. Externally, you might observe water overflowing during a rainstorm, gutters sagging or pulling away from the house or visible cracks and rust.

Internally, you may notice peeling paint or wallpaper, water stains on the ceilings or walls or an unusual amount of mould growth near the ceiling. If left unattended, these problems can lead to significant structural damage to your home. If you notice any of these signs, contact the professionals at O’Brien Electrical and Plumbing Lismore to inspect and fix the issue promptly.

What is the process of a roof repair or replacement?

The process begins with a comprehensive inspection of your roof. This assessment helps determine the extent of the damage and identify the appropriate solution. A repair might involve replacing damaged tiles, patching small leaks, addressing areas of isolated wear and tear or fixing minor gutter issues.

A full roof replacement, however, is a more comprehensive process. It involves removing the existing roofing material, thoroughly inspecting and repairing any underlying structural damage and installing a new roof. Throughout the process, our team ensures meticulous attention to detail, adherence to safety measures and minimal disruption to your routine.
