Briggs Roofing Services Ltd specialises in re-roofing projects of any size. As a customer-focused roofing contractor, we tailor our approach to suit the requirements of our domestic, commercial and industrial clients. Whether this involves a scheduled remodelling project or urgent repair work, we adapt our approach to find a swift, superior-quality solution. Since our establishment in 2008, we have completed countless installations of new roofs in our hometown of Morley, Leeds, Wakefield and the wider West Yorkshire area. Our team has more than 20 years of industry experience, and as a company we hold membership with the Federation of Master Builders, so our clients can rest assured that we work to the very highest of standards.
Sooner or later, roofs reach a point where they simply have to be replaced. The existing slate or tiles deteriorate and become more porous, batons begin to crumble and roofing felt starts to rot. With a marked decrease in roofing performance, water ingress becomes increasingly likely. In a structure made predominantly of timber, this can have huge consequences. These include interior mould and mildew on rafter and joists, potential electrical fire hazards, damaged insulation and compromised structural integrity.
Needless to say, these issues not only take time to repair, but also come with a large bill too. In our role as a time-served roofing contractor, we always stress the importance of property owners in Morley, Leeds, Wakefield and the surrounding areas staying one step ahead of these roofing problems.
Below, we have taken a look at some of early signs that indicate re-roofing may need to take place.
1. It Looks in Bad Condition
While this might seem like an obvious sign, due to their position at the top of a property, roofs rarely get inspected by their owners. It’s not until the damage has already reached a developed stage that a roofing contractor gets the call to take a look. By this point, re-roofing might already be inevitable.
We strongly recommend that homeowners undertake simple checks of their roof where possible. Roofs have an average lifespan of approximately 20 years, so these checks hold particular importance for older houses. If the material looks tired and worn, if screws or nails have come loose and left behind holes, it’s important to take action as quickly as possible.
2. Water Damage
The most common signs of moisture ingress within the roofing area include water stains on the ceilings of the rooms below the loft, a dripping sound during or immediately after rainfall as well as water markings on exterior walls.
In short, these signs indicate that roofing systems on properties in Morley and the neighbouring areas have been compromised, allowing water into areas it shouldn’t be. If caught early, this may only result in roof repairs. However, the more significant the damage, the more cost-effective re-roofing becomes.
3. Neighbours Investing in New Roofs
While one or more neighbours carrying out re-roofing has no link to your own, it’s highly likely that the houses in the area were built at the same time. At the very least, multiple neighbours undergoing re-roofing projects should inspire an inspection of your own.
