Looking after your roof maintenance might not be high up on your list of priorities.
But it’s actually extremely important especially as regular inspections and checks can help to keep your roof safe and prevent any future issues which could be costly.
Gutters should be regularly checked so they don’t become blocked and prevent water moving freely.
Ignoring a blocked gutter can lead to outlet blockages, leaks, internal structure problems and even damage to expensive equipment.

As with most buildings, over time, wear and tear occurs and so repairs do need to be carried out.
Sometimes, these repairs are due to water damage, structural damage, poor design or installation.
Maintenance to flat roofs includes checking gutters, flashing, tiles, re-felting, replacing bitumen sills and brickwork.
Where necessary we may need to make repairs or replace sections.
We can also strip down an entire roof and re-build it but we always discuss any maintenance needed with you beforehand and provide you with a full report and price.
Our roof engineers take time to understand why your roof needs maintenance before providing you with a tailor-made quote.
We are always transparent with our costs too, so you stay within your budget.
Roof repairs extend to a number of different reasons, for example, leaks and moisture ingress which is due to flashings being poorly installed or membranes loosening.
Unfortunately if this is not dealt with, internal structures in the roof could end up in water damage and mould can grow.
When seams or laps are exposed they can loosen the roof, in extreme weather a roof could even blow off!
Your laps and seams should be regularly checked to prevent this from happening.
Ponding water occurs on flat roofs because of their nature and if your water doesn’t clear within a few days it means there is a problem with pitching and blocked guttering.
Membranes can split, crack and blister and this happens during extreme temperature changes.
