Many people in Leeds consider a new kitchen or garden to be the most important home renovation. However, we say that nothing is more vital to your home than regular roof repairs and/or inspections. While it is true that installing a new kitchen is more exciting, you will soon notice your roof if starts to fall into disrepair.

Not only will it leak, but neglecting your roof can lead to higher energy bills. Meanwhile, extensive damage could lead to the need for a replacement roof from qualified roofers; a considerable burden on your bank balance! To keep your roof in good condition for years to come, here are some things you should do to help maintain it:

Inspect your roof

Inspect your roof several times a year (twice at a minimum). If you find any issues such as streaking stains, curling or buckling on your shingles, please call our professional roofers to your Leeds home. Please do the same if you spot any rusted flashings or missing granules.

Water stains in the loft or moss/mould on the roof are also signs of potential problems. If you are noticing higher than average energy bills, it could be time for a new roof. To find out more, please get in touch.

Undertake maintenance

Once a year, you should clean the dust and cobwebs from your exhaust vents and ventilation systems. We also recommend caulking pipes and vents with a high grade sealant, as well as painting any exposed metal to prevent rust. You should also remove leaves and other debris from the roof guttering to stop rain water overflow. Please refer to our earlier blog post about How to Clear Your Gutter of Debris for more information.
