If you have recently had work done on your roof, either by someone gaining access to fit an aerial or to do some pointing to a chimney, they may have damaged the waterproof membrane that lies beneath the roof slates. In other cases, it may be just a small hole, that has been affected by strong rain or frost and ice damage. In this case, the fault needs to be located and fixed quickly to prevent further problems, to prevent further water leaking through your ceilings.
Always get a detailed report after a roof inspection. If you are having a complete re-roof and are looking to compare quotes from other companies, we are happy to introduce you to previously completed jobs in the local area. In fact, here's one that we think you may recognise.
The first time you'll realise you have a problem with a loose slate or damage to a roof, is when it rains. Which due to the local climate in North Manchester, can be around 110 inches a year. In the Bury and Ramsbottom area, many homes have 'Welsh Slate' as a covering to keep out the rain. It's been used for 100's of years and is an effective deterrent to the elements, including frost and snow. There are many different grades and types of slate, some with a green or purple colouring due the the level of elements contained. The main property of slate is that it has a low water and moisture absorption level, making it virtually waterproof.
Over half of all reported incidents in 2013/14 by the Roofing industry, were due to this. These statistics are from companies whose profession it is to deal with repairs and roofing matters. Don''t go on the roof, or even a ladder, leave it to the professionals!

Usually most people don't need to call a roofing repair company until it's usually to late. That's when roof repairs can become expensive and lead to further damage throughout the home. As properties become older and the weather too takes its toll, it's a good idea to get some free advice from a professional company.

In terms of preventing further expense and cost to the house-holder or future owners, a complete re-roofing might actually add value to your home. It'll certainly give you peace of mind when winter arrives. The main cost is the membrane and labour, as most of the slates can be used again. After all, they're around 500 million years old. Care must be taken when removing the slates to prevent damage, where they can be re-installed again once the protective covering is put in place.
