Roof Repairs
 

Your roof is one of the most important features of your home and provides protection from the elements for you and your family.

 

We repair concrete tile roofs.

Common problems with roofs include cracked or broken ridges and tiles that can result in leaking. 

As your roof is one of the most important features of your home  you should ensure that it is kept in excellent condition

 all year round. That's why we recommend to maintain it regularly by keeping it clean of moss and lichens and replacing

 broken tiles and ridges to significantly extend its lifespan. 

By keeping your roof in excellent conditions all year round in order to minimise costs in the long run it is essential that you have 

a moss and lichen spray treatment at least every 3 years.  


Note this may also be a requirement of your warranty. 


  

Leaking Roofs

South Canterbury Roof Coatings Ltd can assist with fixing up annoying concrete tile roof leaks. Roof leaks can cause major problems and do damage to your home and cost you money down the line.Leaks occur generally in small areas, and usually as a result of one or more of the following problems:

  • Loose or missing fixings
  • Rust or holes
  • Cracked or broken roof tiles
  • Cracked or broken bedding (ridge or hip capping)
  • Displaced roof tiles
  • Tile water-courses blocked
  • Flashings blocked, damaged or displaced
  • Blocked gutters or down pipes

Re-bedding & Re-pointing

Bedding is the cement which is laid to secure the ridge capping in place. Often over a period of time the cement can crack, and in some cases completely fall out from its original place, leaving tiles and ridge capping unsecured.
