It can be easy to neglect small problems around the house, and if left long enough, they can mount into huge critical problems.
One such issue is roof maintenance, with inevitable wear and tear meaning it will need repairs throughout its lifetime.
If you haven't examined your roof for a while, now may be the ideal time to give it a thorough check and carry out any maintenance work that is necessary.
When carrying out any job at an elevated height, it is vital to ensure you have the correct equipment to work safely.
Using a cherry picker or scissor lift from your local Kennards Hire store can assist you with conducting your roof check safely and efficiently.
All roofs will deteriorate over time, but you can do certain things to slow down the process, such as removing all debris on a regular basis - leaf litter in particular can create an acidic environment.
To prevent air blown debris from causing blockages, you can install a gutter guard system that will stop leaves and other materials from creating bigger problems down the track.
It is also a good idea to check your roof after severe weather and storms for any damage and get onto repairs straight away.
