Possibly the most vulnerable aspect of a building’s exterior is the roof system. The average roof braves many storms in its lifetime, and eventually it will need some care.

If your roof is properly maintained, it will safeguard the structural integrity of your house for many, many years. But the average lifespan of a tiled roof in New Zealand is up to about 50 years, so eventually most houses will require roof upgrades. 

Perhaps your roof needs a bit of sprucing, simply for aesthetic purposes. Whether it’s a leak causing water damage, a cracked tile, or dampness issues, our Whakatane Roofing team is eager to help you refresh the external appearance of your business or home.

The average roof will serve you for 15-20 years, and that will vary depending on how well it was initially installed and subsequently looked after over the years. It is normal to experience a few maintenance issues over the course of these 20 years, but what matters is that you have them looked at by professionals when a problem arises. 

So how do you know whether your home needs a re-roof? Here are a few warning signs to know whether your roof is in need of a new beginning:

  • Drooping Roof
  • Damaged Shingles
  • Leaking or Pooling Water
  • Clogged Gutters
  • Poor Maintenance
  • Damaged Flashing
