Your roof is supposed to be checked at least once annually, to ensure that it is doing the job that it is supposed to do. However, much like your car, if you don’t take care of it, then it is unlikely to deliver results. You change the oil in your car, so why do you not take care of your roof also. Years of neglect takes its toll on your roof and if you continued to ignore smaller issues, then these became bigger problems and before you knew it, you were told that you had to replace the whole roof of your home. Generally, this is an expensive project, but there is help out there.
You can find affordable re-roofing services in Shrewsbury and these contractors can build you a new roof from start to finish in no time. Speed is the key when it comes to the UK weather. However, it shouldn’t have come to this if you had completed the following jobs.
- Your local roofer can check for loose tiles or slates on your roof after a storm and if they are damaged, they will be replaced. He normally keeps a stock of the popular ones.
- While up there, he can check for other holes and cracks in the roofing felt and chimney stack to make sure that no water is leaking into the roof space. A dry roof is a strong roof.
- Guttering can be cleared away of leaves and twigs to allow rain water to drain away and algae and moss build up can be removed which gives the roof a longer life cycle.
Get the above jobs done and you can expect your roof to last just as long as the building itself.
