Repairing Storm Damaged Roofs

The Australian macho instinct, always come to the fore, when calamity strikes and this applies when strong stormy weather spoils the usually calm and sunny climate of this beautiful country. With over 20 years of experience at the roofing game, we at Roofing Corp in Sydney know what damage a storm can wreak upon a roof. Despite the macho instinct, we would caution against any DIY approach because fixing a damaged roof can be potentially dangerous and hiring an expert to do the job is definitely the better option.

Differing storm damage scenarios

The storms that rage in some part of Australia, especially the northern and north eastern part of the country can be phenomenal and the damage they incur can sometimes reach very astronomic levels that can sometimes soar into the hundreds of millions. Other parts of the country do not succumb to these catastrophic phenomena but one thing that emerges from these storms is truly perplexing. The aftermath of the storm witnesses some roofs still completely intact, while others have been partly or totally plucked from their trusses. No doubt, the better constructed roofs are the survivors.

Roofing weaknesses

Like everything else, roofs can become susceptible to certain weaknesses caused by the elements, time and workmanship. At Roofing Corp, during more than 20 years of expertise on structural roofing, we have noted that more storms are occurring now than in the past and this increasing incidence tends to weaken roofs over time. The action of insects and natural decay also play havoc with the condition of many roofs and can weaken trusses, rafters or joints in the house frame. The loosening of nails and screws that are left unattended can also cause roof damage. At Roofing Corp, we try our utmost in pre-empting these causative events and always succeed in keeping our roofs in place.
