Living in Auckland you know how unpredictable the weather can be and the storms that lash the area can be devastating, causing serious damage to your roof.
You need to always be prepared and there are a few things you can do before and after a storm to reduce the repairs costs you may need to face should you roof be damaged.
Before the Storm
It’s important you have an Auckland roofing company that you can trust come out on an annual basis to carry out a roof inspection. Annual roof inspections can catch any potential problems early, repairs can be made and the risk of further damage is dramatically reduced.
Always take the time to do your garden maintenance, keep any trees cut back away from the roof, reducing the risk of the branches smashing your roof during high winds.
When you get the news that a storm is on the way, you can’t expect your roofing Auckland company to rush out and check your roof, which is why you do your regular inspections.
But what you can do is to ensure branches are cut back and there isn’t anything that can smash down onto your roof during the storm. Check the ceiling space for leaks and ensure everything is in order before the storm hits.
If you like you can climb up onto the roof and ensure the tiles are in place and ready for the weather that is rapidly approaching.
After the Storm
Unfortunately during the storm there isn’t much you can do. If you notice that your roof suddenly starts leaking, place a bucket directly under the leak in the ceiling space to reduce the risk of it leaking into the lower floors of the property.
As soon as the storm is over, whether you have leaks or not, it’s advisable to call in your roofing Auckland company to do a quick inspection. Rather be safe than sorry.
You can always climb into your ceiling space and look for leaks, walk around the property and ensure that trees haven’t blown over and get a look at the roof to see if there is any debris on the roof.
Finally climb up onto the roof and inspect it yourself. But if you are unsure at any stage, call in your roofing company to do the necessary checks.
