A homeowner from Fixby, contacted DPR’s Huddersfield roofers to carry out a survey and repairs to his property’s roof.

The survey found that the rear elevation roof was in need of extensive repair so it was recommended that the homeowner, Mr Henshaw, consider replacing this section of the roof with a new Superior fibreglass roof that would come with a 20 year guarantee, and carry out minor repairs to the less-affected areas.

Mr Henshaw agreed and instructed the Huddersfield roofers to schedule the work as soon as possible.

With a date for the repairs and instalment of the replacement roof agreed the DPR’s roofing team arrived at the property on the agreed date for the repairs and instalment of the replacement roof and began erecting access equipment and preparing the site for the work.

First they stripped all existing felt and timber decking boards in preparation for the decking boards required for the fibreglass roof.

Next, the roofers de-nailed the roof timbers and fit the new tounged and grooved Sterling roof decking boards to all areas. They then fitted the bespoke pre-made fibreglass trims to the roof perimeter and applied a new resin coat and fibreglass matting to all junctions.

The experienced roofing team then cleaned the roof decking of all dust and applied a laminate resin coat in conjunction with high quality fibreglass matting to bind with the pre-fitted trims.

Finally, a specially formulated coloured topcoat was applied to the entire roof area and trims to form a seamless watertight seal.

With the replacement roof now in place, minor repairs were then carried out to the ridge mortar of the garage roof along with the leadwork to the front and side elevation of the garage roof.

The home and garage roofs are now completely repaired and when sending payment for the works, Mr Henshaw kindly wrote: ‘May I take this opportunity to offer my thanks for the highly professional way your teams carried out the roofing work on our home.’
