All Your Roofing FAQs Answered

How do I know my roof needs to be replaced?

There are a few signs that you can look out for:

  1. Your roof has not been replaced in over 20 years
  2. Your tiles or roof shingles are curling upwards
  3. There are cracks in your tiles
  4. There are entire tiles or shingles missing from your roof
  5. There are roof granules collecting in your gutter
  6. There are gaps in your roof which are letting in the light
  7. An area of your roof is sagging

Can you claim roof repair on insurance?

Part of your roof can be covered by insurance, but it is rare to get full coverage.

Full coverage is only given in the event that the roof was previously in very good condition before it became damaged.

The cause of the damage must also be included in the insurance policy to give full coverage.

How much are gutter repairs?

The cost of gutter repairs are cheaper than roof repairs, however, the price will depend on your individual requirements and situation.

If my roof is damaged, can I carry out work by myself?

Most roof repair work requires the help of a professional.

It can be risky to attempt a repair yourself. Improper techniques can result in injuries as well as damage to your roof.

If you do need to assess your roof yourself, then ensure that your ladder is braced with rubber safety feet.

Having someone foot the ladder and help are essential to ensuring your safety.

Also, wear sensible shoes so that you do not slip on the ladder.

How many years should I expect on my warranty?

Usually, there is a 25-year guarantee on flat roofs, and a 10-year warranty on tile roofs, which also includes solvency protection.

What are the most important things to consider when replacing or choosing a new roof?

There are three key things to consider when choosing a new roof: pitch, planning and weight.

You need to determine the pitch of your roof to know which products you can use.

The new product you choose must meet planning requirements.

Depending on the material you choose, you may need structural support for your roof.

Noting the weight of your chosen roof covering can help save time and money before you make your final decision.

How much does a new or replacement roof cost?

This will depend on the material, size, complexity, location and fitting costs of your new or replacement roof.

A typical roof on a semi-detached property will cost anything from £3,500.
