June 8, 2020 11:58 am


When it comes to keeping an eye on your roof, it is important to watch out for environmental damage that can occur as a result of extreme weathers. The last thing anyone wants is for water to come in through their roof and start to affect the inside of the property. Of course if you notice any damage to your roof or slipped or loose tiles you should speak with a Roof Repairs Gloucester company such as http://gloucester-roofer.co.uk/ to come and have this repaired as soon as possible.

Here are some things to watch out for.

High winds – winds at high speed can cause damage to your roofing tiles by causing them to lift or even fall off completely. Tiles that are lifting or missing can allow the rain to seep into the gap and this will then start to penetrate your home and can affect the other tiles around it.

Snow – excessive snow can be problematic for roofs and flat roofs in particular. Damage can result from the sheer amount of snow on your roof and can cause problems with the tiles and flat roofing structure.

Wildlife – birds, bees and wasps all like to nest in any gaps that they can find in your roofing space and in doing so they make the holes that they find a lot bigger and more likely to let in rain and run off water.
