How Do I Know If I Need A New Garage Roof?
Even with the best care, as things age they can start to fall apart. This is particularly true when it comes to garage roofs. Below are just some of the signs that it maybe time for a new garage roof.
Rust – One of the biggest hints that the roof may not be in the best condition is rust. This may be visible as patches or streaks and it is often found where the sheets overlap and around nail holes. The nails themselves will also show signs of wear and tear over the years, loose nails in particular. This is because moisture is able to get into the hole of the nail and this can cause the timber damage.
Noise – When it is time to replace your garage roof you may also see an increase in noise during windy weather. Loose nails will mean that the sheets will bang and flap around which are all signs that it is time to call in a repair company.
Leaks – A garage roof that is past its best may be more prone to leaks. Leaks are not only a nuisance but they can also cause damage to the items that you store in there too.
Why Should I Use An Expert?
There are a variety of reasons why turning to an expert company to assess your garage roof is important. One of these is because the rust patches and other damage can cause your roof to weaken, and this may lead to injury if you try to inspect it yourself.
The other main reason is asbestos. Asbestos is common in corrugated garage roofs and despite this asbestos being low grade, there is still a possibility that it will have an impact on your health. You should always speak to a company that will know exactly how to approach asbestos garage removal. It is also important that they know how to remove and dispose of asbestos.
