Work on pre-existing rooves is governed by specific building regulations in Britain. A minimum of 48 hrs notice must be provided to the relevant authorities if more than half of the surface of the roof is going to be replaced. It doesn't matter if such work is purely for cosmetic purposes, is because of the age of the roof or is due to accidental damage. Around £5000 plus added costs is the fine for not following this rule.

If you don't need to have repair work done to your roof but only it to be cleaned, you will still need to contact your local Ascot roofing company. Unfortunately the proliferation of algae, mould and moss on rooves is pretty commonplace in the UK, where our temperate and mostly wet climate provides the perfect growing environment. This has an undesirable impact on the appearance of your roof and can also cause problems with damp and rain leaking into your property. These types of problems can also result in drains and rain gutters becoming clogged, therefore keep keep a close eye on them and ensure they're sorted without delay.

Ridge Tile Replacement Ascot

Ridge Tile Replacement Ascot

The fact is that the ridge tiles on a roof sometimes become wobbly, and as a result this is among the foremost reasons for needing roof repairs. This is rarely due to issues with the ridge tiles themselves but is more to do with the effects of the weather on the mortar that keeps them in place. There's not only the risk of rain water leaking into your roof space, but in addition the threat of falling tiles that could cause injury or even death. If you suspect that one or more of your ridge tiles has come loose, make sure you call in a certified Ascot roofer to carry out an inspection. Any self-respecting roof contractor will supply you with an honest assessment of the situation and offer the ideal resolution to get your roof back into shape. If the predicament with your roof is really poor, it may be necessary to take off and re-bed all your ridge tiles. If there doesn't seem to be any loosened ridge tiles, but you've still got a leak, then it might be that one has a crack in it. To resolve this issue, the broken ridge tile must be taken off and replaced. (Tags: Ridge Tile Repairs, Ridge Tile Replacement, Ridge Tiles Ascot)

Thatched Roofing Ascot

Thatched Roofer Ascot Berkshire

A bit of a dying profession these days, thatching is the age-old craft of building roofs out of layers of dried vegetation for example marram grass, straw, heather, reed, rushes or sedge. A water resistant barrier with decent insulating qualities is offered by the close bundling of the materials. Thatching is one of those professions that is as a rule passed down the generations. With advances in modern day roofing materials, thatched roofs have slowly disappeared although in rural areas it is still a popular style of roofing. Not many would argue that a thatched roof is far more attractive than a contemporary slate or tile roof and can actually seem like a work of art. A thatched roof will typically do its job for about 30-35 years, though re-ridging is normally necessary every ten years.
