Roofs are one of the most important aspects of your home. They provide insulation, drainage, light (if there are skylights), solar energy, and more.
Our roofs can get damaged over time, by general wear and tear, or severe weather conditions, eg stormy winds. It is very important to get all roof repairs done as soon as possible, so that no further damage takes place, eg water damage to electrical works.
We check your roof and provide an estimate, with a full analysis of the problem.
Some common roof problems can include:
Most of the time it can be very obvious when you have a leak. However, sometimes leaks can be behind walls or chimneys. This can often be noticed by damp patches, discolouring of walls etc. Be sure to call us early on to avoid any major damage.
This is generally visible and is where your roof appears to dip. This can cause water to gather or pool on your roof and eventually start to leak.
This can often be a cosmetic defect, however once these reach a certain size, they can become a problem.
Often moss and leaves can gather on a roof and begin to decay and rot. Cleaning your roof regularly can prevent the debris build up that can often lead to roof damage.
Choosing what type of roof can be a big decision when building a new home. It will impact how the entire house will look. It also protects your home from the ever changing weather conditions in Ireland.
Some of the options to consider are;
Tile & Slate Roofs
This is the most common type of roof you will see in Ireland. It can withstand harsh weather conditions including snow, hail, and sunshine.
As the name suggests, this is a flat roof. (almost) There can be an incline usually up to 10 degrees. They can allow for the roof to be used as an extra space, eg a rooftop garden.
Copper is an ancient roofing material. You may recognise it from is green colour as it ages. (this is a good thing as it offers extra protection to the metal) They are strong, and highly resistant to fire, hail etc.
Again, similar to copper and zinc roofs, metal means that leaks etc are less likely. It is durable and flexible.
