How do you when to call a roofing company in Elderslie?

It may seem an obvious question with an obvious answer – as soon as there is an obvious problem with the roof, like a gaping hole or the unmistakable tap, tap, tap of rain leaking in.

However, when it gets to this point, it may be that the problem is advance and that with some know-how, what to look for and so on, the problem could have been spotted much earlier on.

Tip 1 – Regularly look up!

The roof is an important component of a building. It seals the property, keeping the weather out and it also provides strength to the four walls of the building too. Problems with roofs are rarely overly complicated. Like many aspects of the home, if problems are spotted early, they can be dealt with – and the cost can be much lower.

There are times when leaks do go on for some time, causing problems in the home such as damp and again, these can cost a lot to fix.

So, taking the time to look up and generally keep an eye on the roof on a regular basis will mean that some visible issues can be spotted and dealt with.

NEVER climb onto your roof! Even when dry, roofing materials can be slippery underfoot!

Tip 2- Go inside the loft space

Some properties have converted roof spaces but others are storage areas within the home. Either way, taking a look inside the loft space every now and then is also a good way of being able to examine the health of the roof in closer quarters.

Check for dampness, as well as a smell of damp too. If you do spot a suspect looking patch of damp or you can see small pin holes of daylight through the roof, you know you need roofing services in Elderslie.

Tip 3 – Storm check

Your roof faces all kinds of weather on a daily basis. But, after a storm – snow, ice, wind, rain and so on – it really does pay to spend some time looking at the roof.

If you notice a loose or missing tile, debris on the ground around your home or debris on the roof, call on reputable roofing services in Elderslie.

Tip 4 – Flashing and accessories

The roof is made up of not just the main material of slate and so on. There are also other components, such as flashing around the chimney breast that can weaken over time. Rain, wind, snow and ice can make its way in through the smallest of gaps.
