Protecting Your Home From Severe Storm Damage
All Roofing Services is encouraging home owners to be prepared, ensuring that roofs are safe and protected against any possibly severe storm and weather damage that may occur during summer.
Severe storms have already started, the first in early November, striking west and south-west Sydney with the worst damage. Calls to the SES were made reporting large trees down and some roof damage in the suburbs of Richmond, Penrith, Mount Druitt, Cambridge Park, Horsley Park and Ingleburn. In one recent storm, an employee of All Roofing Services filling-up at a local service station saw roofing sheets blowing down the street with the SES trying to catch them. The employee provided the SES with roofing screws and advice so that handled the dangerous situation.
With over 9 years experience, All roofing Services are experts in the roofing field, insisting on high-quality materials and professional workmanship. They are friendly, approachable and willing to help.
Julian Direau, the owner, comments that "Everyone wants their home protected from the elements and to provide their family with a safe and secure housing, however the roof is often the last thing people think about. It’s easy to neglect and most people don’t realise there is a problem until there is water leaking in to their home or we have had a major storm.”
After the 1999 storms when many homes and roofs where damaged, the NRMA stated that steel roofs are typically stronger and more hail-resistant than terra-cotta, concrete or slate. Julian says that in the Sydney summer climate where storms are frequently accompanied by hail and severe wind, a metal roof is often the best choice. The maintenance is easier and cheaper, metal roofs are long lasting and most importantly, a well maintained metal roof is more likely to be able to protect a home from untold costs of water damage.
Home owners with metal roofs may only face minor, non-penetrating damage such as dents and scratching from hail stones in comparison to the cost of repairing or replacing concrete, slate or terra-cotta tiles.
All Roofing Services encourages home owners to clean their gutters regularly as debris filled gutters combined with a large rain or hail fall has the potential to cause unlimited water damage inside a home. Home owners should also check or have professionals check for broken or cracked roofing tiles, loose roof plumbing and skylights and inefficient venting.
