“If you run from a leaking roof, you will end up with a flood”.
The importance of a roof in a building cannot be overemphasized. Any person building a new home, the one area he should never attempt to cut corners or costs is the roof. Cutting corners on the roof is akin to shooting oneself in the foot because it will definitely boomerang as they say, “if you buy cheap, you will buy twice”.
In an interview, Dr. Ezekiel Ibeh, the CEO of Swisstech Industries LTD (manufacturers of Swiss Metrotile) confirmed the importance of a good roof over a building. To him, the roof is the main component of a building that protects the entire environment and building a house without quality roof is like having a car without good tires and they will surely disappoint in a short time.
He believes that when contemplating a home, the roof should be regarded as the numero uno. “The door may protect against criminal activities, but a good roof will always have a lot of functions which include improving the aesthetics of the house, the health and overall safety of the occupants of the building, etc”. He said.
Most times when people choose the kind of roof they want on their building, they do not reason beyond having a shade and neglect other important functions of a roof in a building. But a roof is beyond just a shade over a building. According to a research, a roof contributes to a large extent to the wellbeing of occupants of a house. It went further to say that a leaky roof can be very dangerous to health. Prolonged leaks can lead to problems like mould and mildew growth. Mould is triggering to asthma sufferers because when tiny spores are inhaled, they inflame the airways causing coughing, chest tightness and throat irritations. Not only is mould a serious risk to asthma sufferers, but mould causes fevers, headaches, skin problems like eczema and contributes to poor sleeping.
Apart from the health implications, it also has other hazardous effects. For instance, if a leak from a roof meets exposed electrical wiring, it can cause a short-circuit and can ignite a fire and any combustible materials will go up in flames. Most fire incidents are traceable to leaky roofs.
This is the reason a good roof is a solid investment. It will prevent you from spending millions of naira on maintenance or even a complete change down the road and this is the problem Swiss metrotile has set out and has continued to solve for decades.
