At DPR Roofing, we are often the first point of call for commercial and domestic property owners in Leeds when they have a problem with their roofs.

Issues with roofs can arise for a number of different reasons including missing or loose tiles, lack of regular maintenance and extreme weather conditions. Whatever the issue however it is imperative a full survey of the roof is completed and any work is conducted in the shortest time frame to limit the total damage to the site.

To ensure that no problem is too big or difficult for our team, all our Leeds based roofers are qualified to the highest of levels and regularly undertake new qualification courses to enhance their skills further.

To explain the type of work we come across the most, we have listed some of the common roof issues.

Lack of maintenance

This is one of the most common issues of roof damage, on both newer and old types of building. We recently wrote an article on its importance but lack of maintenance can have serious implications. If things such as the gutter is not x learned properly water cannot leave the roof by its correct channels, if tiles are loose then water can find way into the property and much more. Often a simple routine check can pick up the issues quickly.


The weather is the other major cause of roof damage. Strong winds and rain, which occur frequently in the higher locations of Leeds, can cause serious damage, ripping off rood tiles and destroying guttering. It can also lift up felt roofs if not fitted properly and heavy rain centrated and collecting in one are can cause any roof to split.

These are two of the most common causes of roof problems our Leeds roofers face on serious daily basis. If you too have an issue with your roof and require a repair, please do not hesitate to contact one of our team today on
