If you own a home long enough, sooner or later you will have to consider reroofing. If you suspect problems, make a thorough inspection of your roof. Roof tiles or slates will usually last from 20 to 40 years, depending on local climate, the quality of the tiles, quality of installation and with regular maintenance. If your roof is over 20 years old, it should be inspected yearly.

We are proud to announce Damp Guru's NEW roof service level agreements:-
The concept was initiated with a client of ours who had an acidic residue building up on their roof due to the by-product of their manufacturing process. They have a 3000m² of roofing and just did not have the cash flow to do the entire roof simultaneously but at the same time if they were to ignore the problem it would compound and they would have to re-clad the entire roof at a conservative R3million.
So we tailored a deal with them that has proven to be beneficial to both parties.
There was no hefty capital outlay for our client and we simply handled all the problems as they happened. Thereafter systematically waterproofing, regular inspections and minor maintenance was and is continuously being carried out.
The added benefit to them was that the flashing or guttering and down pipes are now being maintained as well.
So when it comes to Roof Servicing & Maintenance let Damp Guru handle your building/dwelling. It’s simple and effective.
Africa has its extremes especially the weather elements; temperatures can spike from hot too cold over a short space of time having significant impact on your roof, where the thermal shock increases and puts even more strain on the buildings and roof structures.
Older buildings have less energy in regards to withstanding the thermal shock.
By regular roof maintenance, the heat build-up is controlled somewhat and will reduce gutter and down pipe maintenance especially if you have box gutters.
The bottom line is…. Can you justify the comparison difference in regular maintenance to replacement?
Let’s look at an IBR roof for example over a 10 year cycle; bearing in mind the inflation alone on materials and labour would reach 150% conservatively.
Re-cladding a 1000m² roof now would cost you about R300k today, however in 10 years it would be over R900k. Damp Guru – Roof Maintenance however would be around R100k.
This is more of a summary and we would have to inspect and discuss each of our client's needs separately however these costings are based on our experience and a conservative budget. Ya ya... So what's the end line... Ok for budget reasons only these are guidelines that will form the realistic costing as each roof is different.
Why should I service my roof regularly?
Don't be like the rest of them... Ignorant and waiting for something to go wrong rather than fixing it.
Don't become a statistic… Give Damp Guru a call today!
