We recommend checking roofs done two to three months, in anticipation of rain at any time.
- After the roof of the house inspected and get repairs, next is examining the ceiling of the house. If the ceiling of your house made of concrete check whether there is seepage from the roof of the house. Avoid puddles that there is in this no top, so that water can not seeped toward the ceiling. If the ceiling of your house made of plywood or gypsum check if there are visible signs of water marks on the ceiling. Usually ceiling damage seen from the water mark on the ceiling. Immediately repair or replace ceiling of the house if there is damage. Lafon if broken and humid allowed to continue, the consequences will be fatal.

Note the angle of the roof to maximize the ability of tile in blocking rainwater. On ceramic tile angle required is about 30 degrees, while the asbestos roof takes around 15 degrees. If the angle of the roof is not considered properly, then the rain that accompanied the wind can go through the tile gap.

Equal to check the roof, this examination should be done two to three months.
