The rainy season is over in the Western Cape but if you suffered a roof leak this winter, now is the time to fix it. Having a roof leak during a rainstorm isn’t exactly fun, especially if you aren’t home to deal with it right away. Water damage can cost thousands of rands to repair. Often, furniture and flooring need to be replaced completely.
Roof leaks sometimes come unexpectedly. One reason for sudden roof leaks is a blocked gutter obstructing water flow. Another common reason is damaged roof shingles which can be caused by our notorious Cape Town South Easter wind. Your roof might appear to be healthy on the surface but might be damaged or worn and in need of repairs. Whatever the reason, you need help and quickly. Here are 3 ways waterproofing your roof will benefit you.

If you take good care of your roof, it should last you up to 30 years. By applying a waterproof layer, your roof will be protected from the suns UV rays as well as the elements of mother nature, thus extending its lifespan even further.
