A damaged roof can pose a serious threat to the safety of your home or commercial property, but with regular maintenance, you can ensure that your roof doesn’t need repairing anytime soon.
Easy maintenance for a problem-free roof:
- Guttering and hopper heads should be cleared on a biannual basis to prevent the build-up of leaves and silt, particularly if your guttering is overlooked by trees.
- Roof leaks should be attended to immediately. Water can be very destructive and what may start as a minor problem could soon deteriorate to be a major problem.
- Solar paint can prolong the life of your roof and we recommend that you have it painted every 3-5 years, depending on the direction the roof is facing. South facing roofs, which potentially get stronger sunlight, are more at risk, but painting can help to prevent problems.
- Heavy storms and extreme weather can badly affect the condition of your roof. From minor damage that has resulted in a slipped tile or slate, to more severe damage that could result in you needing a complete renewal of your roof, out tradesmen are equipped and trained to deal with either.
