La Niña declared for Eastern Australia

La Niña declared for Eastern Australia Sunshine Coast

The Bureau of Meteorology has declared a La Niña, the climate driver typically associated with wet conditions for eastern and northern Australia over summer.

 

With the wet season quickly approaching, it’s time to maintain your roof, just like you would your car.

Here are 4 maintenance tips during the rainy season.

 

1.           Check your roof regularly

We recommend you check your roof every six months. If you have any of the following or any concerns, don’t hesitate to contact our team on 1300 147 663.

– Signs of aging, discoloration, build-up of debris

– Rusty roof screws

 

2.           Clean up debris and other particles

Water pooling on the roof can eventually cause leaks and even more serious problems for your home in the long run. Make sure you clean all the branches, leaves, dirt, and other debris from your house’s roof. Keeping the roof clean and clear gives rainwater an apparent path out of your roof after a rainstorm event.

 

3.           Clean your gutters

A gutter plays a vital part in your building’s roofing system as the main purpose of building the gutter is to evacuate and collect the water that settles on the roof. It also removes water from the foundation of the building to protect the exterior surfaces as well as to prevent water from entering the premises.

 

4.           Trim any overhanging tree branches

Consider eliminating branches or foliage over hanging as there are higher chances of blockages and gutter problems due to leaves or branches that might be stuck in between the path of passing water.

Besides, it will diminish the possibility of them falling during, rain, storm or wind and damaging your building.
