How Do I know When My Roof Needs to be Repaired?

How can I tell When My Roof Needs Repairing?

Leaks

It may seem obvious, but once a leak has become apparent in your roof, you will need to attend to it as soon as you can. This is because once a roof’s structural integrity is compromised, the leak will get much worse and your roof will be liable to fail. Obviously, the more advanced the problem, the more difficult and expensive it will be to repair your roof. So you should have it attended to without delay.

Guttering

Guttering that has become clogged or drained is a nuisance and is rendered useless. If there is a rainstorm and your guttering is not functioning correctly, or it has split and is causing water to pour off the side of your property, you can be sure that you will need it to be looked at by someone who is experienced.

Loose Shingles or Roof Tiles

Loose shingles and tiles can fall from your roof and potentially cause some damage, either to the plants in your garden. Or even to an unfortunate person that happens to walk underneath.

You want a Green Roofing Solution

Green roofing is an excellent solution for those wanting to reduce their carbon footprint and enhance their environmentally friendly credentials. The concept includes installing a living garden on the surface of your flat roof. Not only does this provide increased warmth and energy efficiency but it also improves the look of your home. Resale value can also be improved and surface water run-off will be reduced. Wildlife in particular benefits from having access to another ecosystem in which to feed. Additionally, a green roof can potentially last for decades if properly maintained, meaning you won’t have to have it repaired or replaced as often.
