Have your roof inspected and re pointed or restored if required
Whether your roof is tiled or metal, it’s important to regularly have it professionally inspected. The entire surface of your roof is not visible from the ground meaning damage can easily go un-noticed. If your roof is tiled, over time, small cracks or breaks can appear in the mortar that holds the tile ridges on your roof. Repointing your roofs tiles can fix these small cracks or breaks and stop moisture seeping into your roof. Repointing your tiles and ridge caps will also make your tiles safe and secure in high winds and bad weather.
Clean your gutters
When winters rain arrives, your homes gutters have a vital role to play. Gutters should be cleaned of leaves, sand and debris before winter arrives and any damaged repaired. Doing so can help prevent water from entering the roof cavity of your home.
Have overhanging branches trimmed
Strong and gusty winds can cause tree branches to break and fall. If you have large trees close to your home, these branches can fall and cause extensive damage to your roof. Minimise the risk of damage to your roof from falling tree branches by having these trimmed before winter arrives.
