How many times have you woken up at night, scared out of your skin that there is a burglar or a ghost in your house? How many times have your children come up to your room in the middle of the night screaming about scary noises? If you have experienced either of the two, or both like me, then let me let you in on a secret: you do not have a burglar or a ghost in your house, it is actually your roof tiles or nails that are creaking to make their need for repair reach you!
After months of neglecting what my roof kept saying, I finally had to call Richard Roof Services when one morning as my children were leaving for school, a tile blew off the roof with a strong wind and fell just a few feet away from my kids. Please DO NOT delay your roof tiles’ repair like I made the mistake of doing, this can get dangerous!
Firstly, they will do a survey of your roof, as they bids of mine, and give an estimate of the total cost that will be incurred. These usually depend on the following factors:
Second step they did was to pry loose the tiles that were ABOVE the broken or cracked tiles, fill the holes or cracks elsewhere with cement. The workers then broke the broken or damaged tile entirely and removed the pieces.
The third step they used was to place the new tiles, but these have to have a proper layer of cement or glue or any respective adhesive that is most commonly used, applied at the bottom of the tile. This layer is used with precision as too thick a layer can prevent effective sticking as can too thin a layer.
One of the added advantages of hiring roof repair service providers was that they also fixed a few more things on my roof than just the tiles! They identified and fixed any leaks that they could find on my roof! The method to fix leaks is the same as replacing broken tiles; such as removing the tile above the tile that has the leak and then breaking the faulty tile to fix the leak. This is why repair and fixing of leaks can be done together.
So now that your roof is repaired what time window do you have until calling for these services again? This usually varies from one service provider to another, but at an average can be anywhere from 5 to 15 years!
do not think anymore but call them immediately!
