Strong winds have caused severe problems to roofs across the North of England and in Scotland, with some parts of major cities like Leeds and Glasgow having roads closed through damage or the heightened risk to the public.

It was announced only last week that a hotel roof was blown off in Glasgow city centre during the stormy weather and with winds and cold spells continuing, the issues appears to look like it will get worse.

Other areas of Leeds have been closed due to the high winds and the icy weather has not helped the situation closing other areas too.

In other roofing news this week, Prime Minister David Cameron visited a college in Nottingham to try his hand at roofing. Under the tutelage of former apprentice Lynden Blackwood, the Conservative Leader supposedly learnt some of the basics of roofing, as well as understanding how the J Wright Roofing College had helped to set pupils up for future careers in the roofing industry.

DPR Roofing employ a range of specialist local Leeds roofers and we are always keeping a look out for roofing news in the industry. Currently we are aware that strong winds are causing problems so are urging people to check their roofs periodically. You should also check the roof after any heavy snow has melted from the roof as water will find a natural path inside should you have any leakages.

Should you be concerned about any roofing damage at your home or your commercial unit it is important to act quickly. Any problems that are left will only get worse and could cost more money to get them fixed.
