Work on pre-existing rooves is covered by specific building regulations in Britain. If over fifty percent of your roof is being replaced you should give the relevant authorities not less than 2 days notice. You must do this if the intended work is due to accidental damage, is purely for cosmetic purposes or is because of the age of the roof. As much as 5k plus added costs is the penalty for not abiding by these rules.

These kinds of problems may also lead to gutters and downpipes getting blocked, so keep your eyes peeled and ensure that they are dealt with without delay.

Roof Repointing Bishop Auckland

The cement mortar mix which secures roof ridge tiles in place is known as roof bedding, and whilst this should stay strong for years to come without any maintenance, it really is in the worst place in relation to weather exposure. The ridge tiles and bedding mortar suffer the high and low temperatures and also have to stand up to the full impact of the continuously changing climatic conditions. The main enemy of the bedding materials is ice, if this finds its way into gaps in the mortar it could cause huge issues, splitting off large sections and degrading the adhesion to the ridge tiles. Regular repointing of the roof bedding will help to preserve the durability and look of your roof, and should also make it survive and stay sound for longer. If bedding is allowed to deteriorate you may need to have all of the ridge tiles lifted and re-bedded. A flexible pointing compound is frequently used nowadays, and this keeps the mortar sound as it flexes with the weather.

Thatched Roofing Bishop Auckland

Roof Thatching Bishop Auckland County Durham

The age-old craft of making roofs from bundles of dried vegetation such as marram grass, sedge, heather, rushes, straw or reed is known as thatching, and it is a bit of a declining trade at present. The tightly bundled material enables water to run easily off and in addition provides valuable insulation for the rooms underneath. Traditionally thatching was passed through the generations with father teaching son the craft secrets. Though still widespread in rural environments, thatched roofs have generally declined, due to high costs and a shortage of skilled tradesmen to carry out the work. Few people would argue the fact that a thatched roof is more attractive than a contemporary tile or slate roof and can actually seem like a piece of art. Once completed a brand new thatched roof should last for approximately 30 or more, but since the ridge suffers from more wear, re-ridging needs to be carried out after 10 years or so.
