  • Roofs play some of the most important roles to
    keep homes livable. In addition to creating a
    barrier to keep out anything foreign, roofs
    protect the interior of your home from the
    weather and provide insulation during the hottest
    and coldest months.
  • The thing is, not a lot of people would think
    about giving their roofs some TLC to ensure
    maximum functionality. Most of the time,
    homeowners only give time and attention to their
    roof when a problem is already present.

3
  • Now the question is, whom do you call when you
    encounter a certain issue with your roof?
  • Read on and find out the differences among
    roofers, roof plumbers, and roof contractors.

4
Roofer
  • Roofer refers to anyone who works or fixes roofs.
    They can be licensed or unlicensed roofing
    contractors Adelaide or anyone who works for any
    roofing firm.
  • While its common and acceptable for licensed
    roofing contractors to bring along unlicensed
    workers to assist with the project, its not
    advisable to hire an unlicensed roofer to work on
    his own for your roofing needs.
  • That said, you might want to do some background
    checking before hiring a roofer to know whether
    they are license holders. This is to ensure they
    receive the necessary training needed to perform
    the job well.

5
  • Here are a few signs to know when to call a
    professional roofer
  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • Granule loss
  • Damaged flashing
  • Presence of algae and mould
  • Leaking and water spots
  • Moss-covered roofs

6
Roofing Contractor
  • A roofing contractor is someone who received a
    government-awarded license that proves they are
    fully trained and skilled to perform roof repairs
    Adelaide or roof replacements.
  • There are roofing contractors who work for
    roofing companies and while they may bring along
    a crew of other skilled and trained workers, they
    are capable of handling the work on their own.
  • Roofing contractors work on the same problems
    taken care of by roofers.

7
Roof Plumber
  • Roof plumbing is any work that involves the use
    of flashings, any part of a drainage system that
    accumulates or gets rid of storm water, or any
    connection of storm water pipes to rainwater
    tanks. It also includes the connection of storm
    water downpipes to a drainage disposal point.
  • As the name suggests, roof plumbers deal with
    these specific roofing needs. This includes the
    installation of gutters, flashings, downpipes,
    rainwater tanks, etc. They can work on commercial
    and residential properties.

8
  • They are also able to handle sheeting and wall
    cladding projects. Roof plumbers are also capable
    of reading and interpreting technical diagrams,
    which is why theyre able to install roof
    drainage systems of different angles on
    buildings.
  • Here are a few more tasks that roof plumbers take
    care of
  • Measurement and installation of gutters
  • Construction of ductwork joints, angled gutters
    and stop ends
  • Installation of other collection devices.
  • Termination of building storm water drains
    through a street kerb or a storm water drainage
    system
  • Fixing roof leaks

Why you should avoid DIY roof repairs
  • While it may be tempting to get a ladder and deal
    with your roofing problems yourself, there are
    several reasons why you shouldnt do it.
  • Here are some examples
  • Repairing your roof yourself could void any
    material warranty
  • You could make the problem worse and end up
    paying more later on
  • Getting on your roof may lead to an accident or
    injury
  • Poorly done repairs may lead to leaks and damage
  • Lack of professional training and knowledge to
    properly perform the repairs

10
  • Fixing your roof DIY style can be a challenging,
    tedious, and dangerous job. Instead of attempting
    to do the work yourself, only to cause further
    damage, you need to hire the right professional
    to do the job. Knowing the differences between
    roofers, roof contractors, and roof plumbers
    allows you to conveniently seek help and deal
    with your roofing needs.
