Don’t Be Caught Out This Winter; Get Your Roof Fixed Before It’s Too Late!

Remember the year of 2014? It was when the UK experienced a spell of extreme weather which caused widespread impacts and major damage to UK homes and buildings. This was the stormiest period of weather the UK has seen for the past 20 years. The storms resulted in major excess water problems with over 6000 properties flooding, caused not just by the floods but simply because a large proportion of properties had leaking roofs – roofs that only needed minor repairs… to start with!

It may seem like a big job but roofing contractors can fix most leaks with some straightforward but professionally done patchwork.

Curled shingles - gray/grey looking damaged roof shingles

Roof shingles over time can start to curl, this needs to be dealt with quick as curling shingles no longer protect your home from the elements of winter. You should arrange for your roof to be repaired before a small job turns into a big job.

Here are some facts from the UK Met Office

This map shows the rainfall amount from January 2014, as you can see the whole of England and Wales was above the percentage of rain between 1981-2010. It was the wettest January in England and Wales since 1766, with January 1948 being the closest comparable to January 2014. It was not wet everywhere though and parts of northern Scotland were significantly drier than average.

Why you should get your roof professionally checked over

It’s always a good idea to get your roof professionally checked over if you have any worries as the professionals know how to handle all roofing types:

  • Tiled Roofing
  • Slate Roofing
  • Flat Roofing

It’s also a lot safer for you to get professionals to look at your roof as some people might not feel very confident at scaling ladders. Even if you did get up onto your roof would you really know what you were looking at?

Thinking about leaving your minor roof damage for just another year?

We have all heard of the saying “ignoring it only makes it worse” this is true when it comes to roofs as a few curled shingles or a battered tile will only turn into a leaking roof, a minor leak will turn into a major leak and one missing shingle could turn into a few missing shingles. Small jobs like this if repaired early enough will stop your roof turning into a disaster zone. Repair whilst the damage is minor and prevent a bigger dent in your bank balance.
