Roof Repairs Perth

There are going to be times where you are questioning exactly what needs to be done when you are facing roof repairs Perth.  A leaking, or damaged, roof can be a horrible situation, especially if you think that you are facing thousands of dollars in roofing contractors’ bills to get it fixed.  Those costs may have you wanting to take the easiest, and cheapest, way out, even it is not your best option. 

When to Consider Patching for Roof Repairs Perth

If you have a newer roof and there is a small leak, or minimal damage, you can usually get away with patching your roof.  Of course, I would need to go up on your roof to survey the damage myself and to make sure that there are no other underlying concerns that would cause the patch to fail.  I have been doing roof repairs Perth for long enough now, so I know when a patch will hold and when it will open a whole can of worms in the future. 

Don’t worry, I will give you my honest opinion and even walk you through all your options. 

When to Consider Repairing Your Roof in Perth

For those times where a patch just isn’t going to do the job with your roof repairs Perth, I am going to need to be brutally honest and tell you that repairs are necessary.  However, the repairs might not be as bad as you think, because they normally require the replacement of a few tiles or shingles.  This is much better, and cheaper, than tearing the entire roof off and replacing it all. 

All I need to do is remove the damaged tiles or shingles and replace them with brand-new ones.  Depending on the age of your roof, the new tiles or shingles will not be the same color.  This will be due to the fact that the tiles or shingles on your home may have faded from the sun.  No worries, I can always see if I can find new tiles or shingles that match the current color of the ones on your roof, so it doesn’t look like there is a major patch up there.  I find that this can be quite helpful in the future when you want to sell your home, because potential homeowners will not think there have been major issues. 

When to Consider Replacing Your Roof in Perth

There may be a time when you simply must consider replacing your roof in Perth.  This will often happen when your roof requires roof repairs Perth and you decide that your roof is so old that it is better to replace it all then try to piecemeal it back together again.  There are also times when no number of patches or repairs can possibly get your roof back to where it was, and a replacement is the only option that I see is feasible. 

I understand that this is the most expensive option, but there are times when it is unavoidable.  Again, I take my time to share what I discovered about your roof with you and the reasons why I am recommending a complete replacement over a few simple roof repairs Perth.  

4 Things to Consider when Contemplating Patching, Repairing, or Replacing Your Roof in Perth

There are a few things that I always keep in mind when I am evaluating the condition of a roof in Perth.  I thought I would give you an idea of what they are, so you will understand the process I take. 

  1. The age of your roof
  2. Whether or not any leaks are present
  3. How long you are planning on staying in your current home
  4. Whether you are planning on making any other external changes to your home and need your roof to match the rest of the exterior at the end

Of course, you may have your own thoughts as to whether you think your roof repairs in Perth require patching, repairing, or replacing.  I am more than willing to listen to your thoughts and address all your concerns before we agree on the work that needs to be completed.  After all, you may have circumstances that I am unaware of yet and once I know about it, I may agree with the choice you want to make. 

Oftentimes, that happens when I am more than happy to simply make repairs to a roof in Perth, but a customer hasn’t informed me that they are moving in a couple years and wants to replace the entire roof instead.  I will often agree with them, because a new roof will increase the value of their home when they do go to sell.
