The owner of a home in Pontefract recently contacted DPR Roofing to provide quotations on ways in which we would be able to repair some damage to his bungalow’s roof.

The first, and cheapest, option was to remove and replace all damaged and broken roof tiles and replace with new ones, as well as laying new mortar bedding for the new tiles and carrying out all pointing work.

The owner of the bungalow, Mr Topham, decided to splash out on the second option we presented to him – which was to install an entire new roof that would come with a 20 year guarantee.

With the scaffolding erected and the various health and safety precautions in place, the Pontefract roofers arrived at the property on Carlton Gate and set about dismantling the old roof by removing external coverings, ridge tiles and flashing, and disposing of them accordingly.

After a thorough clean-down the experienced roofing team began installing new high-quality breathable under felt. This negates the requirement for fixed and aesthetically unappealing roof vents which can detract from the overall appearance of the new roof.

Next the new flashing and inter-locking roof tiles, which protect against water ingress, were then fitted to the new mortar bedding.

Finally, an extensive clean-up was done to ensure that all resultant rubble was removed and disposed of at a suitable waste control site – to leave the property looking like new.

The work, and finished roof, was praised by the homeowner, Mr Topham, who kindly took the time to write this letter complimenting our work.

The letter read: I would also like to say how pleased I was with the quality of the work and the manner it was carried out.

Your workforce were excellent and performed their tasks in a highly efficient, friendly and clean manner.

Many thanks to all involved,

Kind regards,

Peter Topham
