During this time of the year, the weather in the UK can be quite unpredictable. Heavy rain and unexpected thunderstorms can be a real test for roofs, to see if they can withstand the conditions. If your roofing isn’t weatherproof, then it is worthwhile having it repaired or replaced. If you need a second opinion to determine if there are issues with your current roofing, contact commercial roofing contractors who can help.
Below are a few example scenarios which could signal that your roof is not weatherproof.
Water spots can be a sign that a leak is happening somewhere. However, it can be very difficult to identify the source if it is a slow leak. For example, not all leaks fall straight, instead they can travel along roof panels and as such land elsewhere. So while it may be helpful for knowing that you have a leak in your roof, you may need the help of Hampshire roofing professionals to track down where the leak is coming from.
If the shingles are deteriorating, you may notice a mass of loose granules flowing out of the downspout during rainfall. A few granules collected in the gutters shouldn’t be too much of a concern, however, losing a lot of the granules could be a sign that your shingles are ageing and may need replacing so you have an effective system.
If you notice cracking in the shingles, then this could be a sign that the granules have worn off, which can lead to shingles becoming brittle and in need of replacing.
If you suspect there are issues with the shingles on your roof, contact commercial roofing companies to see if a repair or a replacement is needed. They can guide you through their findings and recommend the right service.
Winter is the ideal time to have your roof examined to see if it is watertight. During checks, it should be warm and dry. There may also be a slight breeze when it is especially cold and windy. There shouldn’t be any sight or smells of damp, so have all areas covered during checks including the upper corners and around the chimney stack. Your water tank should be checked for any leaks too.
If you have chosen to buy a property which is more of a DIY project, it is important to ask for professional second opinions on a number of things to make sure that the building is safe. For example, asking a Hampshire roofing contractor to come in and have a look to make sure the roof can withstand the weather and is still holding strong is always a good idea. This way if there is a problem, you can be advised on the recommended next steps.
