Roofing Services Warwick

As one of the most respected Roofing Contractors in Warwickshire, we are
called out to so many different roofing repairs that we are very rarely
surprised at the things we find.  Just a week or so back, we were called
to a Vicar’s house in Warwick; to investigate a leaking roof and this is
a picture of what we found:

Do I need my gutter cleaning?

No surprises there really, this is not an uncommon site when we
look at a roof valley that is not easily accessible.  If it’s not a
leaking roof, then it is not something you think of much.   We are
often asked about fixing roof leaks, when all that is needed is
roof cleaning and a few tiles replaced.

However; whilst we took a closer look at the leaking roof and
decide which roofing repairs were necessary, we suddenly
wondered if the Vicar got his inspiration from ‘on high’?

Gutter Cleaning can be interesting

Needless to say, as soon as the roofing repairs had been carried out
to the roof valley and the gutter cleaning was complete, the debris
from the leaking roof was disposed of.

Not the sort of plant you expect to see on a vicars roof

Flat Roof repairs regularly carried out by Mayfield Roofing include bonding felt in hot bitumen, and replacing or over-laying with Rubber Roofing.

There are two types of Rubber Roofing for Flat Roofs.

The most common and most cost effective is the single sheet EPDM system made by ClassicBond and Firestone and other American companies.  These are effectively, a large rubber sheet, held down with very strong adhesives.  There are a few variations of the theme, with fleece backing or other novelties but they are all the same basic system.

By far the best Rubber Roof System is the German engineered Resitrix System.  This is more than twice as thick as the basic systems and it is Hot Air Welded at the details.  Coupled with its non-slip surface, Resitrix is the Rolls Royce system for your flat roof

Who Needs Snow Guards in The Summer?

Let me ask you a question, “How would you feel if a child was killed by a tile falling from your roof?”

There is a common misconception that “Snow Guards” on a roof have something to do with the winter?

That is not the case; “Snow Guards” are a safety device to prevent Tiles or Debris falling from a roof

Snow Guards Prevent Falling Tiles

The name “Snow Guards” obviously originated in places where a lot of snow can build up on a roof
and the Guard was an attempt to prevent this from causing damage when the avalanche occurred.

When the snow slides off the roof, it may take tiles with it.  If there is a Conservatory or other Glass Roof
It could collapse when a mass of snow and debris fell onto it.

Snow Guard On A tiled Roof

Snow Guards should alway be fitted to any Roof that is above something that would be damaged
When tiles fell onto it.

If you are having a new Conservatory fitted PLEASE fit the Snow Guards First!
