When it comes to roof repairs, there are many questions that are associated with it. We have created a FAQ guide. If any of your questions aren’t answered, please contact us.

Q: How can a home owner recognise when a roof system has problems?

A: Majority of the time, roofing problems are discovered once the leaking or other serious damage has occurred.

If you inspect your house twice a year it can reveal any cracks, missing shingles, loose seams or a warped shape. Or even excessive surface granules in your gutter. When you inspect in doors, looked for cracked walls/ceilings, discoloured plasterboard of peeling wallpaper.

If you notice any of these, contact us today and we will help.

Q: What are my options if I decide to reroof?

A: You have a choice. You can decide to have a complete replacement of your roofing system involving a tear-off of your existing roof system. Or you can choose to repair the faulty parts of your roofing system. If you aren’t sure what is suitable, drop us a call on 01473 407953 and we will advise you.

Q: My roof leaks. Do I need to have it replaced completely?

A:Most of the time this isn’t the case. Leaks can be caused from flashing or from a loose section of your roofing system. If damage is extensive to the point where it cannot be repaired and it would be more beneficial then a new roof installation is likely to take place.

Q: How long can I expect my roof system to last?

A: The majority of new roofing systems are designed to last for around 20+ years. Depending on the materials used this can be more or less.

It can also depend on the environment it is surrounded by – the weather climate can alter it’s life span dramatically. As well as how well it is maintained.

Q: How can I determine my annual roofing cost?

A: When considering your roofing options, there are always things to consider:
Annual Roofing Cost = Total Cost (Materials & Labour) / Life Expectancy of Roof System (in years)
