Roof Maintenance

Most modern day houses have pitched roofs covered in tiles or slate

  • Tiles are commonly made out of cement or clay. Cement tiles should last 40-50 years.
  • Slate is hard-wearing but rarely used because it's expensive. More slates than tiles are needed due to how they overlap. Reclaimed slates are a cheaper option.

Many outbuildings and garages, and some extensions, have flat roofs. Felt is the most commonly used.

Tiled Roofs
  • Damp or leaks may signal a cracked or slipped tile.
  • If a tile has blown off, it should be replaced quickly to prevent water from penetrating the felt underneath. Also, more tiles can be dislodged in high winds if there is one missing.
Flat Roofs
  • Cracks or splits round the edges
  • Sagging – as water builds up boards can break under the weight.
  • Damp patches on the ceiling – the roof may have a tear.

Stand back and check your flat roof from the ground periodically. If you spot uneven lumps, repairs may be needed.
