Own­ers of homes more than 25 years old should pay at­ten­tion to the roof, par­tic­u­larly if the orig­i­nal ma­te­ri­als are still in place. ›› Should the roof be cleaned and by who and how? A reg­u­lar roof health-check can give home­own­ers piece of mind. Al­ways use a qual­i­fied roof­ing trades­per­son to check sev­eral ar­eas in­clud­ing: any cracked tiles, tile dis­place­ment or de­bris build-up; check old ce­ment mor­tar bed­ding; flash­ings, gut­ters and down­pipes; and check­ing whether sark­ing is in­stalled as a bar­rier against dust, storms and bush­fires.
