Having a good roof is important as it is necessary to keep water, storm and other natural elements out of the building. Condition of the roof is usually checked when you sell your house.
Leaking roofs can do a lot of damage particularly if left to leak for a long time. Small leaks can go unnoticed for a long time. If the building has a timber construction purlins and joists can start to rot.
High Roofs and Hard to Access Roof Areas
We use rope access techniques to access hard to get to areas, and high level roofing. Working at heights requires supervision and protection. We use correct equipment to protect our roofers.
Some areas will need scaffolding where extensive repairs are needed. Scaffolding is the most common way to have a safe work platform for working at heights. In New Zealand, scaffolds must comply with Scaffolding, Access & Rigging New Zealand (SARNZ) guidelines. Scaffolds must be erected and dismantled by trained people.

With roof replacement, it is important to get the gradient right. Corrugated iron roofing has a small pitch of 8 degrees and 10 degrees if it is in short sheets. Other materials can go down to 1.5 degrees pitch which is 25 mm per meter rise. When roof does not have this pitch, they need raise to meet supplier installation instructions and be in compliance to the building code. Guarantees will not apply if the roof is not raised. Suppliers also insist on the owner washing iron roofing to meet warranty conditions.
