Types Of Garage Roof Repair
Before jumping into the topic of garage roof repair, let’s have a quick look at the different types of issues that garage roofs have.
Leaking Roof Repair
The most common and familiar roof damage is leakage. In fact, over 90 percent of our garage roof repair enquiries are for this specific issue. It can happen due to a lot of factors — defective setup and installation, accumulation of debris, accidental damage, age of the roof, etc.
All of these factors can give rise to leakage or damp problems in your garage roof.
Repair of Elavated Material
Another common roof problem is the elevation of the roofing materials like tiles, slate, asphalt, etc. Usually, strong weather and accidental damage can cause the roofing materials to hoist from their normal architecture. This issue can cause further damage to the roof leading to leakage and bug infestation.
Repair of Missing Material
Roofing materials like tiles and slate can frequently be missing if the foundation is not strong or due to a strong storm or rain. When roofing materials go missing, there is plenty of gaps for the roof to start leaking. At some point, the entire roof can become damaged and will need immediate repair.
Another important reason for a garage roof repair is the presence of a hole or multiple holes. There are lots of reasons why this can happen. The most common reason is defective installation of the roof materials when the roof was installed. Mishandling the shingles can also lead to punctures within the roof. Pests can also infest the roofing material and lead to a hole formation. If you end up with a number of holes, the entire roof structure can get badly damaged.
Repair of Shrinkage
Last but not least, shrinkage of roof material is responsible for roof damage and leaks. Roof shrinkage happens when there is faulty manufacturing of the roof materials. It also occurs when the shingles have been applied poorly. Due to shrinkage in the roof, issues like cracks, ridges, and leakage can take place.
This is another issue that requires immediate repair to prevent further damage.
Garage Roof - Repair or Replacement?
Mainly due to the weather in Edinburgh, garage roofs undergo damage on a frequent basis.
Other reasons can be a faulty installation, leakage through the roof like the ones listed above. But when do you know if you should just repair the roof or completely replace it?
You can determine which one is suitable for you after a thorough inspection of your roof by our team. Some sales companies and other roofers will ALWAYS tell you that you need a replacement to get more of your money. Read our reviews we offer an honest, hardworking, transparent service and you will notice we have your best interests at heart within 5 minutes of your initial garage roof survey.
If you think your roof has some minor damages that can be solved easily, go for a repair. However, if you think your roof has gone beyond the point of any repair solution, then you’ll know it’s time for a replacement.
Garage Roof Repair
If you’re tight on budget, repairing your roof can be the best option. By repairing your roof, you not only get rid of all the issues, but can save a lot of cash. Repairs carried our correctly by professionals can last you for quite some time until you need to replace it.
You can opt for roof repair in the circumstances like roof roles, punctures, leakage, missing materials of the roof, cracks, faulty installation, minor damage done by strong weather, etc.
Repairing a roof has some obvious benefits. Firstly, it’s quite cheap in comparison to replacing one. Next, it strengthens the texture of your roof so that it can work well for many more years. Lastly, it improves the quality of
your old roof and like cards, some old roofs are built to withstand the test of time and then some!
Garage Roof Replacement
In some circumstances, when your roof has become severely damaged, repair is no longer an option — there are certain signs when you know it needs replaced. Usually, a roof requires replacement when there is the tripping of the shingles,
when the age of the roof has exceeded 10 years or more, or when the initial installation of the roof
caused it to be defective.
In these circumstances, a new roof is always the best option. With a new garage roof, you don’t have to worry about more issues arising constantly. Plus, it also enhances the look of your garage, garden and home. Instead of the old tired looking, rusty roof, you get a brand new roof in your choice of colour and design.
However, one disadvantage of replacing a roof can be the expense. Replacing a garage roof can cost you a decent sum of money compared to repairing it.
So, let Garage Roofs Edinburgh Ltd inspect your roof and inform you if it’s fit for repairing or needs a full replacement.
