    Repairing Storm Damage to your Home’s Roof

    With yet another bout of storms hitting the South West of England, many of us are finding ourselves continuing to have to make repairs to the damage the bad weather has caused our home. With some parts of the South West seeing terrible flooding, thousands of homes have been water damaged, and with gale force winds having already battered parts of the UK and unfortunately more expected, some homeowners may find that they are facing problems such as leaky roofs and other damage to the upper storeys of their properties.

    Should you find yourself discovering problems with the roofing on your home, whether storm damaged or general disrepair, here’s what to do to make sure that issues are fixed and further problems are avoided.

    Safety First

    When assessing storm damage to roofing, or making checks for any damage caused by general wear over time can be difficult, and should be approached with caution. Obvious damage such as tiles on the ground, or leaks in the attic or loft space can be clear indicators of problems, but in many cases damage can be unclear. Checks for disrepair can be made by simply standing where your roof is visible (across the road or at the end of your garden, usually) and looking for missing tiles or apparent gaps in your roofing either with the naked eye or binoculars.

    Without the correct safety equipment, homeowners are not advised to climb up onto the roof to assess damage, and should instead seek help from a recommended roofer that has the correct equipment and an awareness of their health and safety guidelines so as to avoid accidents.

    Act Quickly

    With the roofs of our houses helping to protect us from the elements, and our homes from weather damage, disrepair and damage needs to be quickly and properly fixed so as to avoid further problems. If you find that your roof is damaged, further deterioration can be avoided by acting quickly and contacting a qualified professional to come and begin repairs.

    Missing tiles that allow for rain to enter your property can lead to serious water damage, damp issues, and further long term issues with your property. Leaving damage unrepaired could leave homeowners with serious structural problems that with increase the time it takes for issues to be fixed and the cost of fixing the damage.

    If you have noticed damage to your roof caused by the recent storms or just general disrepair and need a trusted tradesperson to help fix issues, then check out our roofing area of our website. For any other damage caused by the bad weather, why not see whether our local recommended builders in Bristol can help, or give us a call on 0117 908 1198.
