How To Choose A Roofer

We know roof problems can cause significant damage to your house, especially if there is water leakage. In time, this can compromise the property’s structure. In many cases, homeowners realise that they have a roof problem when there is extensive damage and it’s too late for a quick fix. At this point, it is time to contact a professional roofer with urgency, to ensure any damage is dealt with before it causes more expense and damage to your property.

A great way to choose a roofing expert is to use references from families and friends who have used one before. You can also rely on the internet and local searches to find someone suitable for the job. Reviews are an excellent resource and are great for giving you an idea of what to expect from your roofer. You want someone who will turn up on time, fix the problem and act professionally at all times. Thankfully, the team at Duraseal meet those standards every time!

Find Roofing Services You Can Trust

It’s important that you can trust the contractor you choose to work on your home. We recommend that you find a roofing specialist who has a physical business location near you. This is important – and also common sense – because you will know where to go if you have a problem with the job that was carried out on your home or business. Your roofer also shouldn’t have to travel too far to carry out the work and any additional repairs if required.

Roofer Safety

The roofing contractors working on your home should be highly trained and aware of all safety precautions. They’ll also need the correct safety gear to guarantee the safety of everyone working on the project.

Whilst talking to potential contractors, ask about the kind of insurance that their roofing company has in place. Roofing companies are obliged to insure all their employees. This ensures that you are not made liable in case any of them are injured while they are carrying out work on your home. Liability insurance is something that you must confirm before allowing any contractor to work on your property.

Getting A Quote

All good roofing contractors should be happy to provide a free quote for their services. You should take them up on this offer, as it allows you to make an informed decision before hiring a new roofer. You could be parting with a lot of money, so it’s important to get the best quote for your budget.

With that being said, be mindful that the cheapest quote may not always be the best. So, weigh up what the quote includes and the quality of the workmanship of the examples you viewed. Remember, high quality solid work will last for a long time. Cutting corners to save costs may become far more expensive in the long run.

Finding Cost-Effective Roofing Services

To be abundantly clear: we would never recommend carrying out any roofing job as a DIY task. Without professional equipment and knowledge, it’s almost never going to be as cost-effective as you think.

Although you don’t always want to go for the cheapest option, that doesn’t mean that that you can’t go for something cost-effective. Many roofing contractors can purchase the materials and tools needed for the job at lower costs. This is because they often buy in bulk, and have long-term connections with retailers and suppliers in your area.

If you tried to buy all the items and tools that you need for your project yourself, the cost is likely to add up to – or even surpass – the cost of hiring the professional in the first place. Additionally, because a roofing contractor specialises in roofs, their work will be more precise and long lasting, resulting in a roof that will remain in good condition for much longer than if it was completed by someone without this expertise.

When Do You Need Roof Repairs?

Checking your roof is not always easy or something we remember to do. However, at least twice a year having a look up there is a good idea. If you’re not able to do it yourself, a professional can help. You may even be able to ask someone to take a look while carrying out other maintenance tasks, like cleaning the gutters.

These checks can mean you see any potential damages early. If your roof needs some maintenance, there are some simple signs to look out for.

Leaks & Water Damage

You might see the results of water damage in the attic or your loft space. There may be water marks and stains in these areas and in the rooms below. If you suddenly notice a freshwater leak, this is more than likely new damage. Thankfully, this may only need a simple repair. On the other hand, if the roof is sagging or the structure of the roof has caved in and given way, this is a sign that the water damage has been over a longer period. In this instance, a roof replacement may be required.

Light Showing Through The Roof Tiles

This is a pretty simple one. If you see light coming through one of your roof tiles, then this will need to be repaired. Even if it is only a small dot of light, it’s best to get ahead before a tiny hole becomes a bigger one. Check for these signs from the attic around sunset. At that time, the roof space will be darker but the remaining sunlight will shine through any holes or cracks.

Mould, Moss & Rotting

Exposure to moisture and cold, wet conditions can result in mould and moss growing. This should not be ignored, as it can cause damage to the structure of the roof. If this happens over a long period of time, the underlay will start to rot. This can weaken the foundation of the roof itself. Once the structure of the roof has reached a stage beyond repair, you’ll need a full replacement of the entire structure.

When To Replace An Old Roof

There is no one-fits-all time scale for roof replacements. Due to variations in materials, no one will be able to give you an exact date for replacement without carrying out a thorough assessment. However, nearly all materials will weaken over time and need to be replaced. If you are noticing that more repairs are needed more frequently, it may be time to get a professional roofing company to replace your roof for you.
