Our Roof Cleaning and Maintenance Services Cover a Variety of Faults or Issues
Whether you’ve got a felt, slate or tile roof, our highly skilled roofers provide the highest standard of roof cleaning and maintenance work.
Roof Cleaning – Moss Removal Services
Large patches of moss can hold water against the roof surface, causing it to rot. Additionally, the water can pool in small gaps between roof tiles, which can cause damage when it freezes. Removing moss yourself can be dangerous, and cause further damage so its best left to the experts.
Roof Cleaning and Maintenance – Tile Repointing Services
Repointing is used when the mortar between tile roof components cracks or breaks apart. This sometimes leaves a gap where water can get under the tiles. Birds and rodents can also borrow in and make their nest under the tiles. Our repointing services will prevent this damage.
Chimney Repointing Services
Repointing is the process of renewing the ‘pointing’, which is the external part of mortar joints, in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay cause gaps in the joints between masonry units. This usually happens in bricks, allowing the undesirable entrance of water.
Removal and Replacement of Lead Work
Lead is extremely durable, meaning poor installation causes most issues. The most common problem is leadwork simply coming loose from the wall and leaving a gap for rainwater. Over longer periods, leadwork can eventually split due to the exposure to British weather.
Tile Replacement Services
Slipped tiles or slates will be very easy to notice. They can result in larger amounts of rainwater hitting the underlay, putting it under increased pressure. If water pools build up in the area where a tile or slate has slipped, a leak into the inside of the roof is increasingly likely.
Re-cementing Ridge, Hip & Verge Tiles
Over time the cement on the roof can fail due to constant exposure to high winds and bad weather. They should last a few decades before needing to be replaced if fitted properly in the first place! Our professionals will remove the old mortar, then re-cement the ridge tiles.
Gutter Cleaning and Unblocking Services
Gutters direct rainfall away from your building to protect the outside of the property and the foundations. If there is a problem with the gutters it can cause water damage to your property.
Any Type of Leak Repair
Running out of buckets? It’s time to fix those leaks. Water typically comes in through several key areas:
- Worn, broken, or missing shingles
- Where nails have worked loose
- Through corroded or poorly sealed roof flashing around vents, skylights, chimneys or roof plane intersections
