Yearly Roof Inspection
A roof has to withstand the elements, and everything the British weather can throw at it all year round.
Small roof damage is often ignored but can quickly lead to more expensive repairs if not dealt with quickly.
Roofs are commonly made either of cement tiles or slate in the UK, although some properties may also have thatched or shingle tile coverings.
Minor damage can soon start to cost a lot of money if left un-repaired. Maintenance is essential to keep your costs down.
A roof has to be able to withstand extremes of temperature, wet as well as dry weather, wind, ice, frosts, as well as withstanding wildlife and plant life too.
The different weather conditions that we have put your roof under a lot of stresses.
Your roof has to move and flex according to the different conditions it faces, and this movement over time can often cause tiles, slates and ridges to become loosened from the cement holding them in place.
Animal, birds and wildlife can often cause damage to cement work, chimneys, ridges etc. which can cause tiles and slates to slip.
Stormy weather will soon blow loose slates and tiles off your roof, causing a danger to people below.
Something as simple as a missing or slipped tile can allow a strong wind to lift your roof into the street.
Cement flashing around brickwork and chimneys is susceptible to moisture which will soon cause damage once it is allowed to penetrate the cement. These are often the first areas of a roof to need maintenance.
Guttering and fascias can also cause problems to your roof. If fascias are not maintained they will rot, causing truss damage which is costly to repair.
Regular roof inspections and a little maintenance can save the expense of large repair bills in the longer term.
Small levels of roof maintenance can protect you from large re-roofing bills later on. A well maintained roof will last for decades, a roof left to rot will cost you much more in the long term.
An annual roof inspection provides the security you need to know that your property is ready to fend off the worst of the winter weather.
Knowing that your roof in secure and watertight will give you piece of mind during the harshest of winter weather.
