Roofing Repairs Sydney? Should you DIY?

02/05/2017

Are you looking for information about roofing repairs Sydney and considering a DIY approach to your roofing repair job? It’s tempting to carry out repairs around the home yourself because it can save you hundreds of dollars, right? Well, it depends on what exactly needs to be repaired, and the skills and tools you have available. There’s nothing to stop you from DIY’ing, however be smart and recognise when it’s time to hire an expert.

When it comes to roofing repairs in Sydney, there are a few things that could go wrong, which could cost you a lot more than if you had hired a professional in the first place. Not to mention, are you comfortable working at heights? It may look easy, but the view down from the roof can make the bravest people nervous. A medical report published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health last year showed that each year roughly 5,000 people are hospitalised for injuries as a result off falling off a ladder. Only 20% of these accidents were due to workplace injuries, which means that most of these people that fell off a ladder were at home – sometimes with serious injuries and long recovery times.

Sydney has copped a lot of rain and storms so far, this year, leaving hundreds of properties with roof damage. A quick patch up may seem like a good idea, however you’ll kick yourself the next time it rains, as water will run through the tiniest crack in your roof causing water damage inside the roof and ceiling. Water damage can turn from minor to major relatively quickly, staining the ceiling, growing mould and even affecting electricals. Over time, leaks can wear away at your roof’s structural integrity and cause parts of it to collapse.

Your roof protects everything contained in your house including you and your family.
