Some common roofing problems that may effect you include the following:

  • Missing, slipped or broken tiles
  • Repairing a slate roof
  • Leaking chimney flashings
  • Leaking lead valleys
  • Dislodged or loose ridge & hip tiles
  • Torn, ripped or missing felt / roof linings

Some guidelines on how you can monitor and perhaps prevent roof repairs or replacements:

Neglect of Roof or Lack of Maintenance – Neglecting or failure to detect and fix minor roof deterioration at the first sign of leaking is probably the biggest reason why more expensive roof repairs are required.

Weathering – Over time, roofing materials will deteriorate from exposure to the weather. The rate the materials deteriorate will depend on the type of material being used and the conditions of exposure that they experience. We regularly replace tiles that are over 100 years old, proving that if you fit a good roof then it will last a lifetime.

Improper Design – Roofing problems are sometimes caused by the incorrect design of the roofing system. Design mistakes early on are financially costly to remedy and normally can only be corrected during a complete roof replacement.

Flashing failures – Flashings provide watertight joins between roofing materials and roof projections. They are the most vulnerable part of your roof, but the good news is that they are usually easy to be repaired or replaced. Flashings are a very important part of your roofing system, as the roof is only as strong as it’s weakest part.
