As a UK homeowner, you will already know how the harsh climate can have a negative impact on the home, in particular, the roof, which takes the full force of the weather. The key to roof maintenance lies in regular inspections, which will highlight any minor issues that can be repaired before they cause any damage.
What Does a Roof Inspection Involve?
A typical roof inspection would include the following
- Checking for missing or broken roof tiles.
- Cleaning out the guttering.
- Inspecting the fascia and soffit boards for damage.
- Checking the Chimney
- Inspecting the flashing
How Often Should My Roof Be Inspected?
Some homeowners prefer to inspect their roof every 6 months, while other make it an annual exercise, and with good roof construction in Plymouth, there shouldn’t be any serious issues. It is always a good idea to check the roof after a bout of heavy weather, as storm damage is a real risk.
The people who build roofs also maintain them, and if you would like to have your property added to a contractor’s list, give them a call and tell them how often you would like a roof inspection and they would be happy to oblige. The roofing contractor would issue you with a detailed written report on every aspect of the roof, and that would be included in the price.
Failure to keep your eye on the condition of your roof could have serious consequences, and it only takes a couple of missing tiles to cause serious internal damage, so have your roof checked on a regular basis.
