Why You Might Need a Roof Inspection in Brisbane Northside or Southside

Though a roof is one of the most important components of any house, not all homeowners think to schedule a roof inspection until leaks and other obvious problems arise. Waiting this long to get a roof inspection does ensure that you aren’t spending any money on searching for problems that aren’t there.

However, if the condition of a roof has deteriorated to such an extent that it is leaking water into the house, the damage is already likely extensive and costly. You can save money on repairs by having regular roofing inspections, catching any defects before they become serious problems and investing in preventative maintenance.

But why should you consider a roof inspection in Brisbane Northside? How do you know when it is time to give A.M.J a call to come and look at your roof?

Some experts recommend annual roofing inspections, just to be safe. However, it’s also a good idea to do a roof inspection before you finalise a purchase or move into a new home, or after a major storm. Here are three questions A.M.J can help you to answer in those situations.

Is there asbestos in the roof? For older homes especially, this is an important question to ask before you finalise a purchase. Between the 1940s and the 1980s, asbestos was used frequently in Australian construction projects. Anything built after 2003—when asbestos was completely banned—won’t contain asbestos.

However, homes built prior to 1990 (and even some built afterwards) might have asbestos-containing materials in the flooring, the insulation, the ceiling tiles, the roof shingles and more. At A.M.J, we are only licenced to perform asbestos roof removals.
Is the roof in good condition? Roofs can be damaged by storms and other inclement weather, but even in the best circumstances, they will wear out over time. When you purchase a new home, it’s also important to know how old the roof is and, approximately, how much life it has left.

If you are going to need to replace the roof in a year or so, do you really want to go through with purchasing the home at all? Or can you use that information to negotiate a lower price for the property? A.M.J Metal Roofing Pty Ltd can provide you with an accurate assessment of a roof’s condition.

Was the roof damaged during a storm? A great time to call A.M.J for a roof inspection in Brisbane Southside is after a storm. Heavy winds, relentless rain or hard hail can leave roofs dented, cracked, covered in debris or stripped of shingles. Our inspectors will look at your roof and let you know if any immediate repairs are necessary in order to stave off future problems.
