Four Roofing Myths Busted

Busting Roofing Myths

The importance of roofing is often understated. This part of your home does so much more than just help the rain run off! It protects, it looks great, and it can change the entire dynamic of your home. At SA Quality Home Improvements we know that there is a fair bit of nonsense out there when it comes to the important factors of roofing.


If you are thinking about re-roofing your home, or want to know a bit more about your current roofing system, we have you covered.


Replace Flashings with roofs

Some people don’t think of flashings when they think of roofing. However, flashings are a vital component of your roofing system. If you are replacing worn and corroded iron, your flashings will need replacement as well. Flashings are vital to the overall integrity of your roofing system and can be the difference between water making its way into your home, and you having a water-damage-free interior. While there are different kinds of flashings, this component is always important, and should not be neglected in any situation.


Roofing CAN affect your power consumption

It can be difficult to comprehend, but the quality and state of your roof will affect your utility bills, especially with certain materials. Using Colorbond, the heat resistant and insulative qualities will mean that you won’t have to constantly heat or cool your home for the comfort of those inside. A high-quality roofing system can control natural heat, allowing you to enjoy a comfortable environment without excessive cooling and heating.


Lightweight can mean strong

Just because a material is light and easy to manoeuvre, doesn’t mean it isn’t as strong as they come! Although Colorbond is light and comes in big sheets, the core of the material is incredibly durable, and difficult to compromise. Durable materials are less likely to be dented by debris, erode or incur any kind of damage that may be common with weak alternatives.
