Quite recently in the United Kingdom, our weather patterns seem to be changing and although we are getting warmer weather, which is a welcome change, the storms that we now get are a lot more intense. The wind is blowing a lot harder and it is causing trees to come down and roofs to be ripped off some houses. The roof of your home is the one thing that is protecting your property and it needs to be in good shape in order to do that. Homeowners in the UK, do not schedule regular checks on their roofs and the result is that when there is a big storm, the roof doesn’t do what it is supposed to do. If you do experience a particularly strong storm, then afterwards, you really do need to call out a roofer.
If you search, you will find 24 hour roofers in Gloucester who can come out at a moment’s notice and take care of your roofing issues. There are a number of issues that may occur.
- Roof tiles and slates frequently come loose or get broken after a large storm. You can generally hear them rattling when you are inside your home. Your local roofer will put these back into place or replace if necessary.
- Algae and moss tend to build up on your roof due to the wet UK weather that we experience. This stops the roof from being able to drain away rainwater and do its job correctly. Your local roofer can clean this all away.
- Guttering typically gets clogged up after a storm with leaves and twigs and the rainwater cannot drain away from the roof into the drains below. Your roofer will clean these out.
For all your roofing needs, your local roofing expert is always on hand to step in and help.
