Saving Money with Elzor Roofpainters
A few facts to consider why having your roof painted by Elzor may save you money.
How often do you think about The roof above your head in a literal sense?
Your roof is the primary protection against rain,heat,wind,hailstorms.
Everyday your roof is exposed to all the elements of nature, and these all contribute to deterioration and damage.
The number one cause of roof problems is obvious, and visible in a poorly maintained roof.
With proper maintenance your roof may last a very long time.
Why is roof maintenance important? Let’s look at some of the reasons below:
Roof maintenance can mean the difference between replacing a roof, which is a very expensive exercise or regular maintenance and painting..
How often should you have your roof inspected and maintained? That depends on several factors the age of the roof, weather conditions, and any problems identified during previous inspections.
Even if your roof is newer or hasn’t had any issues, it’s always a good idea to have it inspected at least once every few years.
Having a roof guarantee does not automatically mean you will remain covered as there are many factors to consider.
Some of these guarantees may even be voided by something as simple as installing a satellite dish.
There are many roofing companies and roof material manufacturers that may require a professional inspection every few years or even after a major weather event.
Failure to present proof of this may lead to complications when claiming.
Your roof is part of your homes appeal. Sometimes it could even make or break the sale of your home.
People around you notice the state of your roof far more often than you may think.
Often people don’t think of the fact that when an emergency situation arises they are at the mercy of the roofing company. This is because during an emergency situation time is limited in shopping around for the best deal while your castle is slowly disintegrating.
Some roofing companies are aware of the emergency element ,and may even take advantage of this when adapting their quotes and pricing.
Some roofing companies may make their money on emergency service calls not on roof replacement. Service calls are often billed on a time and materials basis, with extra money being charged on after hours. Driving to the location, setting up equipment and investigating the problem are all part of the bill.
If your roof turns out to be defective or has a major problem, you can spend thousands of rands repairing it. This is in addition to the time you will have to spend having your roof repaired, which can mean missed time from work or appointments as well as the possibility that you may not be able to live in part or all of your house.
The money you could have spent on routine maintenance and or painting costs is a lot less than what you’ll spend during an emergency situation.
Could your roof be hiding something ?
Homeowners often don’t realize that there is damage to their roof until it begins to leak, and by then the problem is often much larger than it appears. Water can infiltrate your ceiling and damage insulation, wood framing and structural steel even before mold appears or ceilings and walls start leaking.
A known fact when it comes to a leaking roof is that often the damaged areas could be far from the actual leak. This is due to gravity and natural contours
Preventative maintenance is the most proactive way to keep your roof and home in good condition and prevent problems in the future. Maintenance lets you be in control and concentrate on other things, giving you peace of mind.
Always think ahead
But when it comes to your roof, thinking ahead is what you need to do. If you do eventually have to have your roof replaced, frequent maintenance will make the job easier for the roofing company, allowing them to complete the job quickly and taking less time out of your schedule.
Maintaining your roof is necessary to protect your home and everyone that lives there. Dealing with roof issues is frustrating and time-consuming. Stay ahead of any problems with preventative roof maintenance.
Roof maintenance is time saving, eco-friendly, increases your house’s appeal, gives you peace of mind and saves you money in the long run by extending the life of your roof.
Most importantly, a little roof maintenance can result in a lot of savings, especially when compared to repairing the damage from a leak or having to replace all or part of your roof due to a major issue.
