Common Issues That Lead To A Roof Examination

  • Missing slates, tiles can lead to damaged roof felt, plastic ceilings and timbers.
  • After a windy Autumn, you might notice roof debris on the ground. This can mean that there are effects on your roof and it needs to be examined
  • Look at your gutters, do you see moss, leaves and debris blocking the rainwater flow? If so, this can lead to damp penetration through the external walls
  • Has the life of the lead and zinc on your roof hit their limits and are now splitting? If so, they will need replacing
  • Are there any cracks in the concrete flashings, this will allow rainwater to penetrate the loft?
  • Do you have a chimney, can you see smoke emanating from the wall? This can mean there are issues with cracks in the wall
  • If you have any cracked felt, this will permit rainwater to damage the flat roof wooden frame if left, which will eventually cause the timber to possibly rot. Likewise, felt roofing does have a lifespan and if you notice bubbles in the felt, then it is likely that the felt has lived its lifespan.
  • During stormy weather, it is not uncommon for hips, ridges and flashings become detached. Signs of this will be in the guttering with mortar droppings
  • Non maintained wooden soffits and fascias are hazardous as they can become rotten, leaving guttering fixings unsafe and dangerous. We would advise that there is a switch to UPVC rooflines.
