Professional roofing companies recommend that Reigate home and business owners regularly check their pitched or flat roof for deterioration. By safely inspecting the condition of old or new roof installations, clients can identify any problems at the earliest stage. This reduces the likelihood of roof repairs which are required to fix costly, large-scale issues.
The roofers at D Hunt Roofing Ltd provide advice for annual or seasonal inspections, with specific signs to look out for.
As well as checking pitched and flat roofs every 12 months, roofing companies urge Reigate clients to assess any damage following extreme weather patterns. Storms, rain and gale-force winds can wear away old and new roofing materials, such as slates and tiles, which require roof repairs. These can be cracked or dislodged, which leads to leaks and damp. Roofline components, like guttering systems, fascias and soffit boards are equally at risk.
Inspections help to keep new roofs in great condition, by ensuring gutters are not blocked with debris to maintain a free-flowing drainage system for run-off water. Roofers strongly suggest this as pooling water, which results from poor drainage at your Reigate property, is a major concern for premises with flat roofs. If left unchecked, the stagnating water can lead to the decay and worn membranes.
