As we walk around our homes, we take great pride in them and rightly so, but as we check for maintenance issues on our property, we very seldom really look up and take a good look at the roof. Out of sight, out of mind is a popular saying and it applies here. Just because it looks OK, doesn’t mean that it is and it has to be checked at least once annually if it is to keep its strength and integrity. Roofs in the UK and constantly overlooked and this results in large budget being spent to repair them.
If you haven’t had your roof checked in a while, call on your local roofers in Bristol to come out and do the necessary checks for you. There are a number of things that they can check for you.
- The chimney and chimney pots need to be checked for damage from flying branches and other debris. If there is damage found, your roofer can fix it.
- Roof tiles and roof slates come loose in high winds and they need to be put back into place. If they are beyond repair, then they can be replaced easily and quickly.
- Guttering is a very important part of the roof and it needs to be kept clear, especially in the UK, due to our wet weather. Leaves and even dead animals need to be removed.
By completing the above jobs, you are taking your first steps to protecting your roof and your home.
