Keep a Roof over your head

Roofing Services in Lancashire

The importance of maintaining or restoring your roof should never be taken for granted.

If you take into consideration what an ordinary roof could experience during its lifetime in regards to the elements – dramatic climate and changes of temperature (heavy snow, high winds, extreme heat and cold and gallons of water etc.) you can agree why keeping your roof in tip-top shape is so important. So if you are searching for excellence in roofing, then you need to look for a roofing professional in the precise areas of roof restorations or re-tiling / re-roofing needed.

There are numerous different classes of roofing professionals, with a focus and expertise on specific core areas. For instance, some roofers concentrate on bespoke heritage roofing and conservation roofing. Some will be a lead work veteran or one who offers a religious roofing service. You can get roofing specialists who do refurbishment roofing. And obviously, you get the ordinary tile roof specialists.

This is why when you are searching for a roofer, you should ensure that they have reliable knowledge in dealing with your particular style of roofing. Choosing the incorrect roofer could be disastrous and regrettable. Getting it so wrong could cause so many problems – putting a too heavy tile on the wrong building structure, for instance. So you require a roofing specialist who is conscious of safe weight issues for structures.
Also, a false fit could lead to water damage internally and leaks. That is why you need to determine your roofer with care. Your home is probably your biggest purchase after all.

Also, a solid roof over your head is what protects you and your family from the outside. A damaged roof leaves your home unsafe.
Should water enter through a broken roof, if left undealt with you may find yourself with not just spoilt ceilings and damaged decor, but problems with the timber structure if ignored.
Loose and sinking tiles do not only leave your home exposed to the elements but can harm people and property too.

And while you believe a ‘patch job’ may do the trick, it will certainly not do.

The only answer is to have your roof fixed or even replaced. In the long run, it will save you money and hassle which will add value to your property. The upside is it can be cost-effective and could bring your energy bills down too.

What Are the Different Shapes of Roofs?

Flat Roof. -More and more homeowners acknowledge flat roofs because of their benefits. They’re cost efficient and of modern style.
Are you considering installing a flat roof? An advantage of a flat rooftop design is the added roof area for multiple purposes. You get to develop a roof garden and dedicate an area for solar panels and a water container.
Some people question whether flat roofs are actually flat. No, they aren’t. Because if they were, they would have trouble draining water. Instead, flat roofs have a small pitch that isn’t obvious.

Pyramid Hip Roof. -Visualise a pyramid – that’s what a pyramid hip roof resembles like. One of the simplest sorts of roofs for houses, a pyramid hip roof has four slanted sides. The sides meet at one point which is the tip of the rooftop.
This roofing form is advantageous because it needs ridges. These are likely to leak and get damaged. One other advantage is that pyramid hip roofs have eaves on all sides.

Gable Roof. -Two sloping sides define a gable roof.
We’re 100% positive that you’ve seen a gable roof because it’s the most popular type of roof shape. It’s described by two slopes that meet at the top. The sides of the slopes are open.
A gable roof is so common that it doesn’t matter if it’s installed in a cold or warm climate. It makes a good choice because of these reasons:
• Extremely affordable for the homeowner.
• Gable roofs are intended to prevent snow build-up.
• You can design your roof in numerous ways.

Shed Roof. -A shed roof is also named a skillion roof. A single slope defines it. If there’s one term to describe a shed roof, that’s “simplicity”. Similar to a gable roof, a shed roof is affordable. Now, why choose this single-sloped roof for your home?
Invest in a shed roof if you're not keen on an attic space.

Curved Roof. -Curved roofs are smart and modern. The most generally used material for a curved roof is steel.
If you want a unique and modern-looking home, go for a curved roof. Curved roofing systems are not just aesthetically pleasing. More importantly, they reduce the indoor temperature. As a consequence, you feel cooler because they experience less sunlight.

Benefits of getting a New Roof fitted

Effectively No Cost To Home Owners- Balance The Costs
A fresh roof surely adds value to your overall property value. A brand-new, guaranteed roof eliminates any problems with the roof, but also enhances the overall look of your home. Taking this into account, you could look at a new roof purchase as an investment in your most valuable ownership.
If your new roof purchase costs you eight thousand pounds but added twelve thousand to your property worth, you are efficiently gaining four thousand from the expense in the longer term. Choose a roof style that maintains its look for longer such as rosemary roof tiles or a natural slate.

Refreshes Your Home – Looks Excellent!
A new roof, fitted well, looks fabulous and can improve the overall look of your home. Ask your roofer to provide cover samples, and ask their advice on balancing in with neighbouring homes and area features. A good roofer, with pride in their job, will want your roof to look grand. It serves as an excellent portfolio addition for those with the experience.

Stress-Free & Guaranteed Work
On top of a great looking and sound investment, a new roof provided to you by a decent company will also privilege from a guarantee. And Guarantees can vary depending on covering type, but you shouldn’t be granted any less than 10 years on the workmanship. Some firms can also offer insurance backed guarantees & completion certificates. Really, you should use one of these companies to do your roof, because the vetting methods involved in achieving the necessary accreditations is very thorough.

Good For Re-Sale – Engaging For Potential Consumers

So now you have a guaranteed, great looking and long term investment.. What’s not to like? Possible buyers will surely be swayed on the right track, and more favoured to offer asking prices. Stress and trivial hassle is something people attempt to eliminate from their lives. Your new roof investment reduces a lot of those issues in one swoop. On the other hand, having a roof in bad condition can run the other way for you if you are considering selling.
With roof surveys growing more common in home buying, consumers are warned before completion that significant works will be needed very soon after their new purchase. After this information has been given to your buyer, it is very common for the purchaser to then seek quotes (from the survey conclusions) for the roof replacement, and negotiate the purchase price with you, the vendor.

Energy Efficient – Insulation top up & Pay Less On Energy
Once the present (old) roof covering is removed, it is straightforward for your roofer to place, or top up insulation in your roof area. This can have an extreme effect on your energy expenditure and preservation of warmth in your home. We are all aware that heat rises, so if your loft room is leaking heat, your heating will have to work harder for longer. This would cost you more money than needed in heating bills.
