The main cause of long-term roof damage is a poorly maintained roof. As a fundamental part of your home, it is important to keep on top of the regular maintenance and inspection of it, to prevent expensive repair work being required.
The frequency of checks on your roof should ideally be once a year, to prevent any major damages occurring. Here at Clark Roofing Ltd we are more than happy to carry out regular roof inspections on your roof to your convenience and deal with any minor repairs or leaks that are required, which will prevent major damages to your house in the long run. This means that you could end up saving money, as large roof repairs can be very costly.
OUR ROOF MAINTENANCE SERVICE
There are many checks we carry out when we look at your roof in order to cover all areas and identify any potential problems. The problems we look for are:
- Broken shingles or missing shingles, are they buckling, curling or blistering
- Missing or broken tiles and slates
- Broken leadwork, are there any cracks?
- Damaged chimney cap
- Cracked caulk
- Rusting on the flashing
- Moss or lichen can be a sign of decaying
- Cleaning and testing of guttering so Fascias doesn’t rot
EARLY SIGNS OF A LEAK
Leaking around your roof can be caused by many things, for example cracks and holes in roof vents or ridge caps. Excess moisture and clogged gutters are also primary reasons that a roof may be leaking, so although we are at hand to carry out regular roof maintenance, there are some early signs of leaking that you can look out for to minimise your damage and costs. We advise you to look out for dark or damp areas on your ceilings and fireplaces, peeling paint under the roof overhands, and damp marks near the boiler.
If you see any of these signs of a leaky roof, or wish to take advantage of our excellent maintenance service, do not hesitate to get in touch.
