Frankston Building Inspector for Building Inspections Australia checks all your roof components for building defects and damage. Loose fixings are a common problem on older iron clad roofs.
It’s common for old nail type roof fixings to lift over time and become detached from the roof frame. A number of factors such as timber shrinkage, moisture, storm activity and sinking foundations can cause the nails to pop and lose traction.
Whist not usually considered urgent, a property owner should seriously consider replacing the nails with roofing screws to help prevent water ingress and to hold the covering firmly in place. This roof will most likely be replaced due to the excessive surface rust in addition to the loose fixings. Licensed plumbers are usually the trade responsible for fixing these defects.
