Good maintenance of your roof can save you thousands, by extending the life of your roof. The roof and guttering must be kept in a good condition to enable a property to remain weatherproof. Ineffective covering can lead to expensive work to the underlying timbers and any decorative finishes, which will deteriorate rapidly in damp conditions.

 

 

Avoid Roof Timber Degradation:

If the roof covering has become tired and needs replacing, it is wise to do this before the timber structure beneath becomes damaged. Ballman Roofing Contractors can provide a free, no obligation quotation to replace your roof using the state of the art technologies and top quality materials, skillfully installed by our highly trained technicians. We can asses and advise you on your roof and all this is free of charge!

Different roof coverings have varying life spans. The materials used, the quality of the workmanship and the exposure to the elements will all be contributing factors to the effective life of the roof. There are some materials in certain conditions that will last for a hundred years or more, while others deteriorate after 40 years.  Some are only guaranteed for 20 years reliable cover, this all depends on location, product choice and installation quality.

You may only realise that a repair is needed on the roof when ceiling stains are noticed in a room after rainfall. This indicates that water is leaking into the roof space. By this point, internal damage has already been caused and the cost escalates as soon as the damage begins. Ideally, always repair roof damage as soon as possible, this will stop further rainfall damaging the fabric of your home. Ballman Roofing – serving Kent and your main roofer in Canterbury.

Roof related structures which may require your attention:

Chimneys 
Chimneystacks should be checked regularly for any potential problems. By keeping an eye on their condition or change of condition, repairs can be carried out as soon as they are required, preventing further dampness penetrating.

Flashing
Flashing is used around the base of the stack to seal and weatherproof the stack to the roof surface. It is also used where a roof meets a wall, or around a dormer window. It can be a mortar, tiled or metal flashing, such as lead, zinc or copper. Metal flashing is available in sections, made for use around a chimneystack or can be purchased in rolls, of varying widths and materials.

Guttering
The purpose of guttering is to efficiently channel rain water from the roof towards a downpipe, which in turn carries it down to ground level and then into the drainage system. This system helps to stop the walls of the house becoming saturated and causing problems with dampness.
