Is the roofing of your Johnstone property in need of some attention?

The roof of any property needs some attention every now and then. Whether it is replacing a missing slate, or giving it a clean to remove moss and so on, the smallest of maintenance tasks can have a big impact on extending the life of your roof.

It is probably true to say, however, that very few of us give the roofing on our Johnstone a second glance. We only ever really look up when we know there is something wrong. It does pay, however, to perform some simple tasks every now and then to make sure that your roof is in tip top condition…

After the storm has passed

The weather plays an important part in how well and how long the roofing on a Johnstone property will stand the test of time. With the British tradition of naming storms, whenever the latest one has passed, spend a moment or two looking up at your roof.

From missing slates to debris, to damage to gutters and so on, spotting the signs early and getting them repaired is key to ensuring the longevity of a roof.

When there are variations in temperature

You may not think much to the heat of the Scottish summer, but your roof sits in blazing sunshine all day for days on end, sometimes.

When the temperature falls too, causing water to freeze, any droplet of water on the roof will be frozen solid. In the depth of winter, it can stay like that for days on end too. When it thaws, one or two droplets may not cause too much of a problem but over time, it could.

Go inside

If you do not go in your loft on a regular basis, then this is one way you can start to check the health of your roof. If it is safe to do so (never dangle from a ladder), take a moment or two to poke your head through the loft hatch and peer at the underside of your roof. You should not be able to see daylight at all, no matter how small the hole!

What’s growing on the roof?

Some roofs you may notice, have moss and so on growing on them. This is not something that will cause problems instantly, but these small plants are sponge like, sucking in moisture. This moisture is now sitting on your roof and over time, could cause a few issues.
If this is the case, consider having your roof professionally cleaned.
