Prevention is usually better, and cheaper, than cure so finding potential problems early can save you a big headache. Here are some common roofing problems that can occur:
This is one of the most common roof problems and can occur for a number of reasons. Leaks can be seen by looking at the humidity and damp in the loft area. Humidity under the roof can cause mould and rot that can lead to serious problems if left undetected and unrepaired for a long time. If wet has spread to the rafters, then you need a roofing expert specialist directly.
If there are signs of an accumulation of standing water on your roof, then this is an indication something is not working properly. This may be caused by excessive debris build up in the gutters that is affecting the drainage. If you see a ‘puddle’ on the roof, especially a flat roof, then it’s time to call in a professional.

Damaged tiles or slates
Stormy weather and high winds can cause tiles to become cracked or completely broken. If slate tiles are fixed with nails or wood, corrosion over time will reduce the grip and as a result can become more easily damaged by weather conditions. Sometimes all you need is to replace one or two roof tiles but in poor condition, may need complete re-roofing work.
