SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Our wide range of roofing services are available to clients in Halifax and the surrounding areas of West Yorkshire. Our services include:
Flat roofs are a popular choice of roof for houses, garages and extensions. The supporting structure of a flat roof is a timber frame made of joists, timber decking, wall plates and metal joist hangers, which we custom build on your site. Although they are called flat roofs, it is essential that they have a minor fall to ensure water can easily flow off the roof rather than puddles forming, as puddles can lead to leaks. The average flat roof in the UK has a pitch of approximately ten degrees. You can choose which flat roof covering you would like, as we have felt and mastic asphalt available, which are both made from bitumen. It is essential when we are installing your roof that we prevent leaks from occurring at abutments and parapets. We create a skirting to ensure it is watertight at the edge of the flat roof where the roof covering meets the house walls.
Although we are experts in flat roofing systems, we also specialise in the installation of natural slate, concrete tiles, single ply membrane, leadwork and shingles.

We can carry out all aspects of roof repairs including flat roof repairs, repointing work, guttering replacement, leak repairs and tile replacement.
Guttering can be made from a variety of materials including cast iron, painted steel, lead, galvanised steel, painted aluminium, PVC and copper. Our contractors can install both metal guttering and plastic (PVC) guttering, always in compliance with the relevant building regulations. Metal gutters are beneficial as they can expand and contract according to the temperature, and they are not damaged by UV light from the sun, unlike plastic guttering. Iron cast metal guttering systems are heavy and strong and able to withstand extreme elements, however the other metals are much lighter. Modern metal guttering is seamless, meaning there are no joints, screws or bolts that could break or erode, decreasing the chance of a leak. PVC (plastic) guttering is strong and flexible, and less likely to lose its shape.
The purpose of a gutter is to drain away rain when it lands on your property, to stop a flood occurring or excessive puddles forming. Keeping your gutter clean and maintained is essential for protecting the interior and exterior of your property from structural damage caused by water. Our roofers can remove built up leaves and debris from your gutter, remove any blockages and clear the downpipe to ensure your guttering systems are operating as they should. If your gutter is sagging, then the screws on the brackets may have come loose, or the bracket may need replacing.
