We have found that the following factors have led to your house or property needing it's roof repaired

1. Neglect of Roof or Lack of Maintenance
The basic neglect or failure to detect and fix minor roof deterioration at the first sign of leaking or problems is probably the biggest reason why roof repairs are required

2. Weathering
It's natural that roofing materials deteriorate from exposure to the weather over time but the rate that they deteriorate is determined by the kind of material and the conditions of exposure that they experience. We regularly replace tiles that are over 100 years old, proving that if you fit a good roof then it will last a lifetime.

3. Improper Design
Roofing problems are sometimes caused by the incorrect initial design of the roofing system. Design mistakes early on are financially costly to remedy and normally can only be corrected during a complete roof replacement.

4. Flashing Failures
Flashings provide watertight joins between roofing materials and roof projections like between your roof tiles and your chimney, where lead flashings are commonly used, they can also be used between different roof sections. Flashings are the most vulnerable part of your roof. but the good news is that they are easily replaced if they show signs of aging or begin to let in water,. Their importance to the health of the roofing system cannot be exaggerated, as the roof is only as strong as it's weakest part.
