Roof Maintenance

A Word on RUST
In our tropical climate, electrolysis between dissimilar metals is a common occurence on roofs. Zincalume steel and Colorbond roof sheeting do not like contact with lead, copper or stainless steel. When lead is in contact with Zincalume metal and there is moisture between them, a small electric current is generated and the ‘weaker’ material (zincalume steel) sacrifices itself by ‘rusting’. This leads to premature deterioration of the protective coating of the metal roof sheet. 

Often it is cheaper to get the roofing professionals to perform a roof replacement rather that to keep repairing a faulty roof.

If a roof is rusty and near the end of its life, painting, patch repairs and other temporary repairs will not add substantially to the life of that roof. Because the roof has to be replaced anyway (sometimes quite soon), the extra costs of the roof repair work and any other repair work to the ceilings and house interiors are all in addition to the roof replacement costs. It is better to ‘bite the bullet’ and opt for a roof replacement before wasting any more money doing temporary repair work.
