DPR Roofing, your local roofing contractor in Barnsley, urges homeowners to check for wear or damage to roofs after the winter months. Experienced roofers DPR advise that a quick, but thorough check on a regular basis can help avoid more serious roof problems. If you are not sure what to look for, DPR recommend calling in the services of a professional roofing company. DPR have over 20 years’ experience in roofing services around the Barnsley area, and are able to carry out prompt, efficient roof repairs. They advise Barnsley homeowners that attending to small repairs on roofs can be more economical in the long term than waiting until more damage has occurred.

The roofing team at DPR advises that everyone in the Barnsley area should check their roof carefully for signs that repairs may be necessary, and recommend using binoculars if necessary. They explain that a roof may have a potential problem even before it begins to leak, and action should be taken early to avoid this more troublesome fault.

Signs Barnsley homeowners should look out for are missing, cracked or damaged slates, or tiles, or damages to flashing. Patches of discolouration on some roof surfaces may also be an indication that the urgent services of a professional roofer are required.

Another possible indicator as to the probable health of your roof is its age – every type of roofing surface material has a projected life span, and if your roof is approaching the limit of its life expectancy, it may pay to be extra vigilant, or arrange a professional survey by local Barnsley roofing company DPR.
