Roof repairs are one of the most common reasons people approach roofing businesses such as ourselves. We will advise you about the most appropriate and cost effective method for repairing your roof which will suit your needs and your budget.
Most of us experience roofing problems at some time or the other which can cause a great deal of misery, not to mention the expense. We have all been plagued by a leaking roof, blocked guttering, missing tiles or damp in the loft which is no respecter of background, lifestyle or income.
These problems affect domestic, commercial and industrial properties so no-one is immune.
However, a problem with your roof does not automatically mean a complete new roof is required. In many cases a simple repair will solve the problem providing it is dealt with sooner rather than later. This is why we advise customers to approach us as soon as they notice a problem with their roof. The reason for this is that it will be cheaper and easier to deal with.
The most common roof problems
There are roofing problems which we see time and time again. These include:
- Leaking roof
- Broken tiles
- Missing tiles
- Misaligned tiles
- Damaged slates
- Leaking/corroded flashings
- Blocked/leaking/sagging guttering
- Damaged/exposed roof lining, e.g. felt lining
- Dry rot
These are caused by the weather, poor installation or design, faulty flashings and neglect. But in most of these cases prevention is better than cure.
There is very little anyone can do about the weather as any structure will shows signs of wear and tear from constant exposure to the elements. But the rate at which a roof deteriorates is decided by the type and quality of materials used.
At Rydale Roofing we only use premium quality materials which will guarantee the longevity of your roof.
Poor design or build
Poor design or installation is another common reason. A roof which has been badly designed or botched will cause a range of problems that can be costly to fix. In some cases a complete re-roof is required.
We only use highly qualified, skilled tradesmen who have in-depth knowledge and experience of all types of roofing systems.
These are the most vulnerable aspect of a roof as they provide watertight seals between different sections of the roof. Lead flashing is used as a barrier between the chimney and roof tiles and is known for its highly resistant properties.
But once flashing starts to let in water it needs to be replaced because if left untreated, will compromise the rest of the roof.
This is a relatively easy job to do. We will identify the cause of your flashing failure and repair or replace worn out flashing where necessary.
This is sadly, an all-too common cause of many roofing problems. Most roofing problems are preventable but are allowed to develop due to a lack of care and maintenance.
A roof is a very important part of any building, whether a domestic household, industrial unit or a series of commercial properties. But in all cases it needs to be inspected and maintained on a regular basis.
A regular ‘roof checkup’ means that any minor roof problems such as a broken tile can be dealt with straightaway, which will save both time and money. And let’s be honest; money is something that is in short supply at the moment so anything which saves money is a good thing.
We can save you money by carrying out an inspection of your roof before providing you with a no obligation, written estimate which highlights any problems. A quote will also be provided on request.
All of this is FREE so why not call us to find out how we can help you save time and money
