12 Signs That Indicate The Need For Roof Restoration

3 Dec , 2020  

Roofs are essential parts of our houses or any building structure, and their maintenance should not be ignored. If you are not sure whether your roof needs restoration or not… 

12 signs that will help you identify the need for roof restoration

  1. Curled cracked or missing shingles:  If your roof shingles show any of these signs, it means that your roof needs replacement or restoration. It will depend upon the condition of the tiles to decide which of the option is more suited. 
  1. Dirty or dark Shingles: Sometimes, shingles turn dark or even wet. It is a sign of trapped moisture in the shingles, and it indicates that you should get the restoration done. 
  1. Plants on the roof: Plants look beautiful in the garden, but if plants like fungus and moulds or any other small plants or grass are growing on your rooftop, then you should get the restoration done to get rid of it.
  1. Dirty shingles: Shingles easily get covered with dust and dirt and even spider webs. All these things can further deteriorate the conditions of the shingles. Thus, it is essential to do deep cleaning, and roof restoration is the best process for cleaning the roof
  1. Shingle dust or Granules in the gutter: Shingles shed when they start wearing out, and their granules are like black sand. You should check your channel, and if you find any particles or pieces of the shingles in that, then it is a possibility that you may face significant damage in the future due to roof decay. Under such circumstances, you should try to get the roof restoration done at the earliest.
  1. Staining on the walls: Discolouration on the walls may be caused due to many reasons. One of the major causes is that your roof might be allowing the moisture to the walls’ interiors. This moisture can lead to the staining of the walls, and to get rid of that, you will need to get the roof restoration done.
  1. Roof objects and opening wear and tear: Deterioration starts with the openings of the roof, such as vents, pipes, and chimneys. You should check these places for cracks, gaps, or rust. If they are the only places affected, you don’t need entire restoration. 
  1. Sagging roof deck: If your attic’s decking looks sagging, it is because of the moisturizer. You will either need replacement or restoration depending on the condition of the roof.
  1. Leakage in the roof: If the top’s porous underlayment is causing the leak after the rains, you will have to get the roof replacement done. But if only some flashing needs to be replaced, then you can fix it with roof restoration.  
  1. Peeling of exterior paint: Often, we see the roof paint blistering or peeling. It can be an indication of moisture in your roof or the failure of the gutter system. In both cases, you will need to complete the restoration process; else the damage will further increase. 
  1.  Sun Light falling in your attic: If you can see the sun rays coming in your attic, it means that your shingles are cracked, or they have gaps, and they need to be replaced. 
  1. Age of the roof: If your roof is 20-25 years old, it clearly indicates that your roof needs to be restored. 

Conclusion

These were some of the significant signs that indicate your roof needs restoration. In case you see such characters, don’t avoid the repair and call the professionals to get it done.

Rental Inspection Cleaning Tips

At some stage of our lives, most of us have all rented a property. Whether it’s been your own rental, or living with friends the mad rush of cleaning and tearing your hair out to get the place ‘perfect’ is all too familiar. For those bending the rules (and yes, there’s a few) you’ll find yourself hiding dog toys in the car and dropping your furry friend to the neighbours. And between trying to look like the gold-star tenant and playing detective removing all traces of additional housemates, the whole process can be extremely stressful. More…

How to be more productive if you are a work-at-home mom

11 Jan , 2018  

Work-at-home-mother

 Aren’t you lucky to be able to stay at home and tend to your children’s needs while being still in a position of contributing to the family budget? I feel this way, too. But it took me some time to truly appreciate the opportunity to work from home without compromising my idea of being a good mom at the same time. I had to fine tune my expectations in both endeavours, adjust goals, configure relationships with clients and reinvent the concept of time management to suit my family needs. As a result, I became more organised, fulfilled and happier. I manage now to complete whatever tasks I’ve set for myself for the day and still have free time to enjoy a half-an-hour chat with a friend, for instance.

How to organise a kid-friendly Halloween party for under twos

Spooktober is here! Well, if I missed celebrating Halloween last year (stuck at home with 20-day old Jason), I am not going to skip on the fun this year. And keeping the kid in me happy won’t be my usual excuse for doing so. I’ve got a curious one-year old now, whose main job is to learn, explore and experience everything that is new to him. I am also lucky to have a bunch of close mommy friends with toddlers to join in the party. So, I thought that it would be a good idea if I shared out loud with you some tips and ideas on how to hold a Halloween party for toddling bubs who don’t end up spooked up, crying their eyes out amidst the ghost hunt game.

Travelling with kids comes with its own set of challenges. Camping around Australia is the perfect opportunity to indulge in freedom, fun and thrilling outback adventures. But throw children into the mix, and the experience can be overwhelming and exhausting too. Camping with kids brings in an entirely new set of requirements to consider. A camping rig with space becomes a priority, smart storage solutions are essential and implementing at-home creature comforts feels more practical for all.

Moving house. It’s a dreaded term for many of us. Even the most organised households can struggle with the emotional and physical stress that comes with it.

A small amount of hibernation can be good – but don’t let those winter blues kill the fun.

Extend the summer season by crafting a backyard space you won’t want to leave during winter. Incorporating comfort, shelter and warmth will help to establish an area you can use anytime. Here’s how to get the most out of your space this winter:

Happy Earth Day, Australia!

21 Apr , 2017  

Earth Day

I have always tried to live an environmentally conscious life and every year I do something special to celebrate Earth Day. Whether I take part in an organised event in Melbourne, go on a hike with friends or finish a long due design project at home by reusing some old materials, I just make sure that I mark the day in my own way.
Well, this year, it is my first Earth Day as a mum. And I feel a little bit restricted to just do anything I like to show my appreciation for Nature. Moreover, with rain forecast for tomorrow and for the week ahead, my choice of options seems rather limited. So, I have decided to bring Earth Day at home by drafting a list of the small things I could do to contribute to our environment.

Feel free to follow in my footsteps, you pretty Eco-minded mums!
