Do You Have an Issue With Your Roof?
As with all aspects of property maintenance, a proactive approach to roof care helps to identify issues early. In turn, this allows us to perform the necessary fix long before it develops into a much bigger problem. Of course, smaller roof repairs minimise costs, disruption and stress.
But how can you tell if your roof has a leak? First, we strongly advise having it inspected at least once a year. For added peace of mind, however, you can increase this to two annually.If you decide one is enough, this should occur in early autumn, while the weather is still calm and before temperatures drop off. In the event of a problem, our roofing company also has enough time to carry out the necessary roof repairs.
If you choose to have two inspections, the other should take place in the spring. This lets our team assess your roof after the worst of the winter weather has passed.
A diligent approach to pitched and flat roofing maintenance delays the point where you need to invest in large-scale repairs and an eventual replacement. By extending your roof covering’s lifespan, you also maximise your initial investment in it.
But you should always stay vigilant for the first signs of roofing damage at your Eastbourne, Lewes, Seaford or Sussex-area property. These include:
- Dirty or dark patches on your roof
- Signs of water damage inside your house
- Cracked, slipped or missing slates or tiles
- New and unexpected mould growths
- Water marks on external walls
- Loose or missing flashing on your roof
- Sand or granular debris in gutters or garden
- A sag in your roofing structure
