Roof repairs, like all building projects, are technically complex and need skill. Therefore we strongly recommend that you hire a roofer rather than attempt the continue repair yourself. Because it's likely to be more efficient, higher-quality and cheaper in the long term.
You should always include any additional information you feel would be beneficial to the roofer when asking for an estimate. If you want to know more about roofing, then consider the following:
What, in your opinion, is wrong about the roof's condition? Although you may be unable to identify the root cause, the symptoms will help you determine the situation. Do you have a leak in your home? It is cold. Both? You can see if the tiles are cracked, broken, or if there is a damage to their coating. Be precise.
You may not need to coat your entire roof. There are roof treatments that will protect your tiles, etc. from the weather. Roofers can help you if that is what you want and it's all you need.
Your home has a flat or sloped roof. A flat roof requires special attention. Because they do not drain as easily, flat roofs are more vulnerable.
Roof restoration may involve more than simply repairing the roof, and could require a full restoration. The materials used, the scope of work and even where it is located can determine whether or not roof specialists are needed. Remember this if your roof looks different.
Roof replacement: Some roofs also require a complete or partial replacement. The roof replacement process is different. You should still consider it even if your leak is small.
Gutters and fascias: This isn't roof repair. But gutters, facias, and other roofing parts are often neglected. Roofs require just as much attention and care. Do not automatically assume a roof leak is the culprit - your guttering could also be to blame.
