Things to Look Out for
Cracked or Missing Mortar - Mortar is a sand and cement mixture that is used to bed down ridges and tiles to verges, and many other parts of the roof. This can break down over years due to dramatic change in weather conditions, and cause it to crack and fall out, leaving you with loose and vulnerable sections on the roof. It is good practice to check the roof to see if it is ok, and if you are unsure of what you are looking at, then seek the advice of our team. Cracked or missing mortar can lead to tiles and other parts of the roof becoming loose and falling off, opening your roof up to the elements.
Broken and Missing Tiles - Tiles that are made from clay can be more vulnerable to break due to frost and adverse weather conditions. This may be unnoticeable from the ground, and you may not realise they are there due to being held together by moss or lichen growth. Felt is installed as a second precaution if the tiles were to fail due to breakages, but they will need to be replaced as soon as possible as the rain and damp could deteriorate the felt, thus causing a much bigger job to put right.
Timbers - As seen in our picture, we have undertaken work on rotten timbers due to the roof failing because of lack of maintenance. The problem was ignored, resulting in major works to the structure of the roof. A small leak over time can travel through timber, causing it to rot away at its structural points, making the roof unsafe.
