General Roofing Information

Your Roof

­ One of the m­ost important parts of your home or business premises. A leaking or insecure roof can lead to long term problems such as rotten timbers or other structural damage. Many homeowners make the mistake of spending time and money on internal refurbishment while neglecting the basic fabric of the building. A sound roof is fundamental to protecting your property and maintaining its value.

Property Purchase

If you are moving house or considering a property purchase, the condition of the roof will be an important consideration. Your surveyor will usually comment on this in their report, but surveyors are sometimes a little pessimistic and may not cover all the details. We can look at the roof and give you a fair and impartial assessment, together with a detailed quotation for any work.


Roof Repairs - Planned

Most properties need some on-going maintenance. If you have concerns about your roof we will take a look and make an assessment. If minor repairs are needed we will advise you accordingly, if more extensive work is needed we will give you a detailed breakdown. We can also advise you about any work that needs immediate attention and what can be delayed to spread the cost. We have come across a number of 'quick fixes' that are sometimes proposed by builders, such as a 'cold solution' over your roof. We would strongly advise you to treat these with caution and seek professional advice - you can talk to us or consult a surveyor or architect. They will tell you that roofing work is best undertaken by a specialist rather than a general builder.

Roof Repairs - Emergency

We provide a call out service to deal with storm damage or other emergencies. We will put temporary measures in place to protect your property. We can then do a more detailed assessment, to help you with any insurance claims and get your roof fixed. A call out charge is payable, but we will not seek to make things worse for you by hitting you with unreasonable charges. Making your roof sound should be your first priority - please call us as soon as possible. We would advise you to check your insurance policy, as it may not cover all costs.
