Every property requires roof repairs and maintenance during the course of its lifespan. In this article, we will discuss the most common types of roof repairs.

Repairing Broken Shingles

Alike tiles, shingles will eventually deteriorate and loosen. In various instances, you may notice gaps in your tiles from the ground, and if multiple tiles are missing then it could be time to get a completely new roof. Cracked or missing shingles leave your property vulnerable to UV radiation, water damage, leaks and in certain cases, the roof could even collapse. You will want to put your trust in an experienced and knowledgeable roofer to repair your shingles, to ensure effective results that stand the test of time. Get in touch with us today to arrange top quality results.

Fixing or Replacing Damaged Tiles

Many properties have tile roofs that are constructed to be long lasting. Tiles that are damaged will require replacement. Forming an essential form of protection, just a single missing tile can allow moisture to penetrate through, damaging the underlayment and structure. We can carefully pry up broken tiles, just above the damaged ones, and break up the faulty tile, getting rid of any nails. Next, we can spread a small quantity of roofing cement beneath the underside of the new tile. An adhesive, as opposed to nails, will keep this tile in position. Finally, we will gently, though snugly, secure the tiles in place.

Stopping a Leak THROUGH ROOF REPAIRS

Roofing serves to battle against moisture entering your property. Roofing materials behave as a shield, keeping moisture away from the roof. However, if you have discovered that your roof is leaking, it is vital that you take action as soon as possible. Once it has penetrated damaged shingles or broken tiles, water will get through to the underlayment. If the underlayment is penetrated, it will get to the structure of your roof, resulting in a build-up of mould and rot in the structure and in your attic. If this is overlooked, this can cause significant damage to the structure of your property. So, if you suspect your roof is leaking, do not hesitate to get in touch with us at your earliest convenience.

Helping a Flat Roof To Drain Water

If you have a flat roof, drainage is vital, as you would not want your roof to retain water. One of the most common kinds of repair that roofs require is assistance with drainage, whether in the form of inner drains, scuppers or gutters. Just a few indicators that a company can be trusted with offering roofing solutions include a history of work and financial records of past work; clients that speak highly of a company’s work, and detailed, written proposals. Here at our company, we are in possession of all of the above, so choose us for effective solutions.
