Given their position on a property, it’s easy to understand why roofs are so often ‘out of sight, out of mind’. Simple maintenance checks and small-scale roofing repairs play an important role in lessening the likelihood of much larger-scale emergency repairs being necessary.
A significant amount of the roofing repairs work we undertake as roofing contractors consists of fixing an area that is leaking, whether through deterioration over time or sudden damage. Given the amount of rain we receive, and the exposed nature of roofs on Bromley, Orpington, Sevenoaks and Kent-based properties, this isn’t surprising.
There are numerous ways water can leak into a property including:
As soon as water finds a way into the internal structure of a roof, the problem only grows exponentially worse. To prevent large-scale, costly or emergency roofing repairs, it always pays to be vigilant to your roof’s condition.
In our role as roofing contractors, the wider roofing services we provide for property owners in Bromley, Orpington, Sevenoaks and the surrounding Kent areas includes the maintenance or replacement of uPVC fascias, soffits and guttering, as well as moss cleaning.
uPVC fascias, soffits and guttering remain essential components to a fully functioning roofing system. Their durable, interlocking nature prevents water ingress at the potentially exposed areas at the edge of, and underneath, timber rafters.
Any crack or breakage in these roofline products leads to water ingress that can potentially cause rotting or damp damage to rafters and joists.
An abundance of moss on the roof of a Bromley, Orpington, Sevenoaks or wider Kent area property can also lead to roofing damage. Moss holds water so, over time, roofing materials are more likely to rot where moss grows. In a similar vein, during freeze-thaw cycles, the water that moss holds expands, eventually pulling the tiles apart.
As reputable roofing contractors, we ensure that our roofing services fully comply with current Health & Safety legislation. For the ultimate peace of mind, our roofing repairs and roofing services in Bromley, Orpington, Sevenoaks and across Kent are covered by £1m public liability insurance and £10m employer’s insurance.
