Summer has certainly arrived – not just in Leeds and West Yorkshire, but across the whole country. However, as glorious as this year’s British Summer is, it may be causing serious damage to some flat roofs in Leeds that have been neglected over the years.

Roofs are vulnerable to the summer’s high temperatures because they are continually exposed to the sun’s damaging UV rays. As a result of these UV rays flat roofs in particular can become less reliable and efficient over time, allowing for the possibility of leaks and cracks and, if left untreated until the winter they can even contribute to an increase in energy bills.

If you would like a survey of your roof to assess it for signs of sun damage or general wear and tear that could also lead to problems then contact the Leeds roofers at DPR Roofing.

If inspected in time we can repair roofs that only have minor damage. But, flat roofing can become unrepairable if allowed to corrode for too long. This is why it’s important to have roofs inspected and, if damage is found, have it repaired and restored as soon as possible.

Carrying out timely and professional repairs to a roof can dramatically extend its life – avoiding the need for new roof installations. By carrying out yearly inspections, repairs and restorations can be made that could extend the roof’s lifespan by up to 10 years.

However, if indeed your roof is beyond repair, DPR’s Leeds roofers will be able to provide a variety of options for installing a new roof to suit every budget. For a free survey contact us today.
