Most of us don’t really think about the roof of our homes, despite the important job that it does! That is until something goes wrong with it! Keep an eye out for problems that may be caused by your roof – water and damp patches on walls and ceiling, water pouring down from the roof or tiles that have come off are all signs that there could well be damage that needs to be repaired.

Make sure that you get a professional like this Cheltenham roofing company to repair the roof – it is not only incredibly dangerous to go climbing around on your own roof, but when you don’t know what you are doing you could make the problem a lot worse!

These are a couple of common roof problems that you may have…

 

Damage from Trees – Trees around the house look lovely but must be cared for regularly by a tree surgeon, as the branches can damage your roof. As well as this you also run the risk of an already weak or damaged tree being blown over in a storm and landing on your roof.

Blocked Drains – Drains are there to make sure that water is moved from your roof down to the drains to make sure that it won’t cause any damage. Unfortunately drains can become blocked by all sorts of things – leaves, dirt and even birds’ nests! Once the drains are blocked the water will then not be able to get down to the drain and will start to cause all sorts of problems with the guttering and the roof.
