Roof lead flashing that isn’t properly installed
The flashing on your roof is what seals it back after things such as vent pipes, sky lights and chimneys have been installed. If the flashing hasn’t been properly attached then these open seams can cause your tiles to blow away. Particularly in bad weather. A good roofing company in Shrewsbury like us can fix this quickly and easily for you.
They may seem relatively innocent, but bugs, birds and other small creatures that can take up home in your roof can cause some quite major issues. It may seem a little cruel to evict them, but if you let them stay then you could risk paying out for some pretty costly roof repairs.
Standing water on your roof
If you have standing water on your roof, then you may find that you need to take a look at it. This is usually caused by improper drainage or debris building up around guttering which can cause the water to gather, and perhaps even cause some damage.
Nature is one of the biggest trouble makers in the world of roof repair. The wind, in particular, is known to be the reason for punctures and holes popping up, which will then need to be repaired. We are also an Emergency roofer in Shrewsbury and the local area's, with a 24 HR storm hotline 01743 403103. If your roof has been damaged by a storm call us immediately.
Another natural nuisance that might lead to roof repairs is trees. Trees that are overhanging can rub on the surface of a roof, which can rub away the protective top layer which stops leaks. Even worse than this is falling branches, which, if they are heavy enough or land with enough force, can cause some serious damage.
Not maintaining your roof
One of the biggest reasons that a roof may need repairs is because you are not taking proper care of it. It is important to find an expert in roofing that can take a look at the roof and make sure that it is in the best condition possible. That way, you can be sure that any roof repairs that need to be carried out are minimal and won’t end up costing you the Earth.
