The roof leaking after heavy rain is a rather common problem in many parts of the world. Unfortunately, Mumbai is no exception to this problem. The roofing of the velodrome in the Indira Gandhi National Stadium has been a major issue on Friday evening. Earlier in the week, the newly built cycling track at the Indira Gandhi National Stadium had its roof leaking after heavy rains and fortunately, the damages have been found and they have been rectified. However, the same problem is likely to plague the entire venue during the festive season. Therefore, it is important to understand how roof maintenance professionals can solve such issues.
The first step in this process is to ensure that the roof is not leaking at all. If you can see only small, imperceptible watermarks on the roof, then the problem is probably confined to the roofing material used. In this case, you will have to repair these marks using specialised roofing materials and ensure that they are sealed well so that there is no chance of seepage or leakage. This can be done easily by using a high quality roofing material that does not allow the water to seep into the structure.
The next step in this process is to gather all the relevant information regarding the roof leaking and then determine which roofing material is required. For instance, if the damage is caused because of shingle cracks, then you will have to confirm whether you require steel roofing or asphalt shingles. Similarly, if you request quotes for the roof repairs from various companies, you will be able to compare the different material costs. Requesting quotes from a customer type service will enable you to identify the right company for the job.
One important aspect to keep in mind when requesting quotes from roofing companies is whether or not they offer guarantee on the roof work. You should always ask whether this is included in the quote. If not, then it means that you should plan on calling them back after comparing prices to find out whether they have any such guarantee. If they do, then you know that you can put your worries to rest as roofing materials are almost never defective. Therefore, you should definitely take this factor into consideration before proceeding any further.
Another important aspect to keep in mind when requesting quotes from roofing companies is the warranty that is provided with the roof repair. It is a good idea to check the coverage offered because sometimes the estimate is for only the repairing of the roof… Therefore, before finalising your deal, make sure that the warranty provided will cover the cost of any material or labor that may be needed during the repair process.
The third important factor that one should consider before requesting quotes from roofing companies is whether or not they have a provision for allowing a customer to pay for additional materials when it is required. There are many roofing contractors that are open to this provision but unfortunately, not all of them do. Therefore, it would be best if you specify that you require additional materials like someone uses when installing a washing machine on the roof.
Before requesting quotes from roofing companies, it is also a good idea to find out if the contractor has any permit or license required to carry out the work on the roof. A license or permit is required to ensure that the contractor has complied with all the necessary safety measures and has ensured that the roof is in compliance with the community’s local building codes. The contractor will also need to have insurance that ensures the roof and the materials being used on the roof are not being damaged due to natural calamities like storms, fire and flooding.
In conclusion, remember that your roof needs to be safe for the people living or working on it. That means that it is vital that the roofer has the proper tools, protective gear and even experience before beginning to work. If you choose a roofing contractor that does not have these things then you are potentially throwing your money away. On the other hand, if you choose a roofer who has all of these things then you can be guaranteed that your investment will indeed be safe and that you will not have to worry about whether the roofer was licensed or not.
