Protect Your Family and Your Pocket Book with Roof Waterproofing

In South Africa, it is illegal to not waterproof your roof. Well, illegal is a strong word. However, under the National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act, waterproofing your roof is mandatory. According to the guidelines, you should have a durable roof and make sure that water cannot penetrate its interior. The roof should have a non-accumulating surface.

You might have to replace your roof if you experience roof leaks due to an incorrect installation of the roof, storm damage, or neglect of maintenance. Roofs last 25 to 30 years, which means replacing your roof might be the best option if you have continuous problems. A small roof leak may seem innocuous, but it can cause extensive, dangerous, and costly damage.

It is common for homeowners to view a leaky roof as a structural issue, but such an issue can actually pose serious health and safety risks. One such danger is damp, which can cause paint to peel and mould to grow on walls, ceilings, and furniture. In addition to being unsightly, this is also dangerous and harmful to your health.

There are also fire hazards to consider. If your electrical wiring is visible in your ceiling, shorted wires from a leak could cause a fire. A leaky roof can also cause structural damage. As a result, the roof frames and wood deteriorate, posing a danger to the structure. A roofing professional should be called in to help with these issues.
