Over the last two decades, Centurion proper has become so much more than just drive-through territory between Johannesburg and Pretoria. In fact, those who do drive through Centurion on a regular basis have every right to feel a little jealous, as the greater Centurion area contains some popular entertainment and other venues, loads of innovative architecture and great amenities, while also sporting mostly neat and tidy common areas. A visibly smart standard of living, as a general rule, dominates the area. Quality Roof repairs in Centurion has contributed to this.
That said, all roofs smart or otherwise take a hammering from Gauteng’s weather, and if you ask Centurion residents, some of the most violent weather in recent years seems to brew up right over their heads! Roof repairs in Centurion were always as constant as anywhere else in suburban South Africa, but they’ve taken on a new sense of responsibility with Gauteng’s seemingly worsening annual weather. Spring in Centurion seems to kick off with violent, gusty winds and dry storms, and hail has become a standard feature. From stinging, icy gravel a few decades ago, Gauteng’s hailstones are today often alarmingly large, something Centurion residents are not supposed to have to deal with as a regular occurrence.
Roof Maintenance Has Risen in Importance
What is a house without a roof? Certainly not a home, although it’s a question better expressed as: “What’s a home with a leaking roof?” The answer to that question is easily gleaned from anyone who’s had to live with one. A leaking roof is like a boat－even one hole is enough to sink the ship (or drive you mad!). Not only does living with a leak force you to emotionally downgrade your attachment to whatever is underneath it (as wherever water falls indoors it’s going to eventually do damage), it’s also simply dangerous.
It’s easy to forget because we never see it, but modern houses have extensive timber and electrical components hidden above the ceiling. While South African legislation governing roof construction and the electrical wiring of a house is robust, meaning that electrical wiring in the roof isn’t prone to easy malfunction when exposed to the weather through a damaged roof, do you really want to be pouring water in that space? The possibilities for down-the-line damage increase the longer a roof is left unrepaired, and include damage to electrical circuitry and appliances. Then there’s the aesthetic and structural integrity of ceilings to consider, with those ugly brown blotches that just shave value off the overall look and feel of your home.
