Tiled roofs were the cornerstone of any Australian Home – durable, long-lasting and low maintenance. Whether you live in a coastal area, a rural and rugged region, or within the inner suburbs of Sydney, tiled roofs are compatible for any harsh Australian climate, and withstood the test of time.
A tiled roof can span 50 years, depending on how well maintained. Regular maintenance having minor repairs fixed promptly to avoid long-term damage, should keep your roof structurally sound whilst still achieving the aesthetical appeal.
Durability is one benefit of a tiled roof, however, tiles can become damaged in many ways. Whether it be from heavy rainfall, strong winds or natural ageing, tiled roofs can easily become susceptible to damage or deterioration.
Once your tiled roof becomes damaged, we suggest investigating into repairing it as soon as possible as tiled roofs that are broken, missing pieces or have deteriorated leave exposed areas for water and moisture to infiltrate interiors of a house. When water gets inside the roof you may experience problems with moisture damage, rotting, mould, mildew, and ceiling damage. Therefore, we advise it is best to investigate having the issues resolved as quickly as possible.
