ROOFING

We undertake all aspects of roofing repairs including; renovation, slating, tiling, felt repair and replacement, guttering, lead work, pointing and moss removal, which not only makes your property more attractive, but also it prolongs the lifespan of your roof.

 

Common problems

 

  • Debris on the ground from broken slates, tiles or defective mortar could indicate that there may be a problem.
  • If you have missing tiles or slates, damage will occur to roof felt, timbers or plaster ceilings.
  • Moss, leaves and other debris can block gutters. Overflow of guttering can cause damp to penetrate when running down the walls or to back flow into the roof area.
  • Moss retains moisture, which may damage the roof covering, particularly if left on the roof in frosty weather, careful removal is advisable and treatments are available to eliminate this problem with a roof coating solution.
  • Hips, ridges and flashings can become detached in windy weather if pointing is not maintained. Look in gutters or gullies for signs of mortar droppings.
  • Where a fuel fire is used check for smoke exiting through brickwork or at base of pots. Pointing and re-flaunching may be required.

Many roof coverings such as lead or thatch require specialist repair. Do not use unskilled labour or quick-fix materials as these could cause greater long term expense.

Re-Roof and Flat Roofs

 

Due to increased customer demand, we are fitting more EPDM rubber as a modern solution for a leaking flat roof. It is the best answer to replace or renovate old worn out roofing materials. The all-cold process ensures quick fitting, therefore reducing costs, as no flat roofing specialist tools are required.

Flat roof felt, asphalt and bitumen have a limited life span due to rapid deterioration caused by varied weather conditions. Our new rubber membrane solution will prevent the need for continually re-felting problem areas and is guaranteed for 10 years.

Fascia’s, Gutter & Soffits

 

Why spend your time repairing, replacing or re-painting leaky old guttering when our UPVC products are all you need for a maintenance free and cost effective alternative. Our specialist installation team can have all your fascia, soffits and guttering made to measure and replaced in no time at all.

 

What is a fascia?

  • This is the horizontal piece between the top of an exterior wall and the projecting eaves. It normally refers to the fascia board, which caps the end of the rafters outside a building and often holds the rain gutter.

 

What is a soffit?

  • This is the finished surface below the fascia and rafters, and can include the underneath part of an arch or architrave or underneath a flight of stairs. It can also include the exposed underside of any section of a roof eave.

 

How do I know when my fascia and soffits need replacing?

There are several warning signs, including leaking guttering and the wood starting to rot. Damp can also start appearing in the corner of adjoining bedrooms. You may also be able to see soffits starting to sag.
