By having your roof regularly maintained, you are reducing the risk of it suddenly breaking, as a roof is usually expensive to repair. The weather can erode and damage your roof over time, causing it to become weaker and more vulnerable to failure and leaks. Your roof is regularly exposed to ultraviolet radiation, snow, sleet, hail, rain and wind, which could have a negative affect on its performance. If your roof has a poor design, weak materials or is over 20 years old, it is likely that it will not be as resistant to these external factors, and you may need it replacing. We provide roof maintenance in the Leeds area to identify any potential problems with your roof and prevent them before they occur.
Although we specialise in roof maintenance and repairs, we can provide a wide range of roofing services including:
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Roof maintenance involves the regular inspection of certain elements of your roofing systems, which is usually carried out once or twice a year to make your roof more manageable. You should also have your roof inspected after extreme weather has occurred, including storms, hurricanes and hailstorms. We inspect the flashing on your roof, as most leaks first develop at areas with flashing, including the skylights, perimeters, drains, equipment curbs and walls. The roof flashing is more susceptible to damage than the field membrane because it is exposed to UV degradation. We also inspect the field of the roof, to ensure there is not excessive wear. Our team of roofers can prevent future problems occurring by providing repairs to any damage that is developing. We have extensive knowledge in both tile and slate roofs and can provide regular maintenance for both. Tile roofs are usually made out of clay or cement, and they should last around 50 years if they are maintained correctly. Slate roofs are very durable and hard wearing but they are a lot more expensive than their tile alternatives. Inspections we carry out on all roofs are:
- Clay Tiles, Slate & Stone
- Hips & Ridges
- Asphalt & Flat Roofs
- Roof Field Membrane
If the rain is driving underneath the tiles on your roof or there is a slate broken or out of place, you should get it repaired immediately to prevent it becoming a bigger problem. Whether you have a felt, asphalt, slate, lead or tiled roof, we can visit your property to assess the damage, and provide you with cost-effective roof repairs. We can provide gutter cleaning, leak repairs and chimney replacements to properties, regardless of how large your roof is. There are signs to look out for to identify if your roof is leaking, for example damp patches, water stains, mould or wet insulation in the attic. On the exterior of your property you can look out for broken roof tiles, dented areas, black patches and overflowing guttering on the roof, as these are all signs of damage. With over 17 years of experience in the roofing industry, we can carry out repairs to soffits, flashing, lead, pointing, flashing, gullies and all other aspects of your roof.
With access to a wide range of materials we provide the supply and installation of all types of roof, including high performance felt, concrete, pitched, clay, lead, slate, fibreglass and tile. We are passionate about quality and take pride in creating roofs with an aesthetically pleasing appearance as well as being long-lasting with a high durability. Our roofers are happy to work alongside architects, contractors, joiners, landscapers and homeowners to create a high quality, durable roof for your property. We can design and install new roofs and supply you with structurally strong guttering and a chimneystack. All the work we carry out on your roof complies with current health and safety regulations for your peace of mind. Our experienced team can provide roof installations for new builds, house extensions, bungalows, conservatories and restorations.
You should have a new roof installed either every 20 years or when it is broken, as this will increase the value of your home and reduce the risk of it failing. When completing the replacement of a roof, keeping your property protected from weather damage is our priority, so we use tarps and protection plywood to create walls and siding to prevent any rain or wind entering. This is particularly important when we remove the old shingles to replace any damaged wood decking, as the interior of your property is exposed.
