The roof is an important part of your home. It is one of the main guarantors of your comfort and well-being, allowing you to live protected from bad weather and the vagaries of the climate. A roof in bad condition can cause you problems, especially at the level of the solidity of your building, if you do not take into account the problem quickly enough. Today, I propose you to discover in a few lines how to take care effectively of the roof of your house.
Cleaning and maintenance of your roof
Once in a while, you have to take care of cleaning your roof, especially when it is invaded by moss. This is not only unsightly, but it can also affect the durability of the roof.
Also, you need to scrape off the moss and then use the right products to ensure a good cleaning of the roof. You should know that this varies depending on the material used for your roof: concrete, slate, clay tile.
You must then apply the appropriate treatments, such as water-repellent treatments that help the tiles to be stronger and less porous, for example.
Treating waterproofing problems
Do you have waterproofing problems in your home? Most of them come from the roof, because it has not been treated effectively against this concern. So, from time to time, you should check if your roof’s waterproofing is still up to par.
Also, I advise you to fix the problem fast enough so that there is no more concern about water infiltration. The installation of a waterproofing is quite easy, especially when it comes to a flat roof. You can do it yourself.
To do so, you must first prepare the terrace with a good cleaning. Then simply unroll the roof decking and cut it to size. Then use mastic adhesive for a good fixation on the whole roof area and apply it by removing the protective film little by little. Do the same until the entire surface is covered.
