How to Stop Roof Rat Damage
This article is designed to help homeowners understand the implication of roof rat damage. It also describes why it happens, and how they can use rodent proofing to protect their roofs and homes from such threats.
The roof felt is a heavy duty protective layer of material that is infused with asphalt. This waterproof construction material sits between the roof sheathing and the final layer of roofing material. If you are a savvy DIYer, laying a felt roof is something you could undertake as long as you understand the process and you do not rush the job.
Seasonal change brings new risks for your roof. Winter rain and snow can have a negative effect on the integrity of roofing structures which is why it is so important to ensure proper maintenance and care for your roof. Even summer heat and strong UV rays from the sun can dry and crack roof structures such as shingles and even roof linings. Indeed, regardless of the season, weather can damage your roof and ultimately lead to leaks, rot, and other structural problems. As such, weather proofing is an important prevention that helps you avoid repairs and expensive roof replacement. Your shingles, flashing, and chimney all need proper weather proofing so they are sound condition when the weather turns really bad.
Roofing replacement comes at a significant cost. Once you calculate the cost of tear down and waste disposal combined with the labour and materials involved in installation, even the cheapest roof is likely to cost several thousand dollars. As a cost saving effort, many home owners choose to have their new roof installed over the existing roof rather than pay extra for removal. Indeed, this is a common practice among many roofing contractors, but there are several well-documented problems with this type of roofing installation.
Most houses have roof space that is ready for converting into either extra living or storage space. It only costs a fraction of the price of a renovation or extension. Conventionally, a renovation can cost between $3,000 and $4,000 a square meter.
