Energy efficient roofing is becoming more popular than ever as many homeowners strive to reduce their impact on the planet. It can also have cost saving benefits for property owners too.

Value for Money
When considering your budget, always weigh up the cost of multiple repairs vs a new roof. Most property owners dread the costs when it comes to roofing work, but choosing quality doesn’t always mean going for the most expensive option. A well-planned installation by an experienced company and regular maintenance are key.
Attractive Roofing Materials
While functionality is always high on the list for anyone investing in a new roof, you can also think about using the upgrade as a way to add some more kerb appeal to your home. Many roofing components come in a variety of colours and shapes. It’s possible to find the perfect look, whether you live in a traditional or modern property.

What Is a Roof Puncture?
A roof puncture occurs when weight and sharp pressure creates a hole in roofing material. Punctures are dangerous because they are easily overlooked, more than other types of roofing damage. Moisture may then leak into the vulnerable areas of the roof.
Weather Conditions and Age
One common cause of roof punctures is weather conditions. Debris from a storm with strong winds can hit your roof and compromise its integrity. Branches or other stray materials hurled against your roof during heavy rainfall may create leaks that cause damage to interiors. Older roofing also usually wears over time, making it more susceptible to punctures.
Certain structures like antennas installed on your roof can affect materials beneath and cause punctures to develop. When plumbers, technicians or other personnel go on your roof the foot traffic can deteriorate the condition of your roof and cause punctures. (A flat roof may be more at risk for punctures because weight is not displaced on a flat surface.)
Preventing and Repairing Roof Punctures
Commercial property owners who attempt to DIY repairs may unintentionally cause more harm than good to their roofing. Specialised knowledge and experience in roofing installation can help avoid accidental roof punctures and other problems.
