The roof is one of the most important parts of the house. Problematic or damaged roof, certainly can cause discomfort in the house.
There are seven problems that often occur on the roof of the house. Here are seven of these issues and how to handle it:
1. Roof Too Ramps
Roof slope factor must be considered, so that the falling water can flow immediately. Sloping roof causes water to slow down and eventually will gather in concrete and seeps.
How to fix it, roof design should follow the slope of the ideal conditions are 30-40 degrees. The size of this slope is ideal for the limit to be able to hold the roof truss roof cover well so that water can be poured immediately into the ground. In contrast, a steep roof can make a tile degenerate.
2. Roof Leaks
The roof needs to be checked and maintained at least once a year. Pay attention to every ridge, meeting forms the roof, and gutters. Changes in weather-particularly extreme-weather can make easily broken tile and cement on ridge cracks. To that end, seal the connection tile, ridge, and gutters with waterproofing.
3. Frame Roof Brittle
The cause of the rottenness of the roof frame varies, for example seepage water dripping from between tiles and gutters. Replace the entire roof frame must be done if the damage is severe, such as horses or most porous rafters. However, if the damage is only a small portion rafters and battens, you can repair any damaged parts.
4. Tile Slump
Generally, clay tile is designed for angles from 27.5 to 40 degrees. If the mounting angle does not fit, will be the entrance of water. Meanwhile, cracks tile is made to anticipate the expansion of pieces of tile, as well as air vents.
Preferably, the angle made sloping roof with a wider angle of 40 degrees. Each piece of tile should also be nailed to battens which is right underneath that are not easily sag.
5. Ridge Cracks
Ridge cracks occur due to weather changes. The fix, minimize the connection such as the use of the roof ridge and sequence. Ridge size or sequence should not be too high because it will cause a gap that inviting water. Alternatively, apply special sheets are waterproof, soft, and supple on the surface of the ridge.
6. Hair Cracks in Concrete Dak
Hot and cold changes continuously will make a smooth concrete cracks. However, any small cracks certainly makes water entry.
These problems can be overcome by paying attention to the composition of a mixture of concrete and casting process, because these two things will determine the quality of concrete. If the fracture has occurred, use the entire surface of the roof waterproofing.
7. Temperature Heat in the Attic
Heat in the attic temperature can be reduced with cross ventilation. You can modify the vent and make a cavity under the tile.
