Looking After Your Roof During Summer
As expert roofers, Sussex based Podesta Roofing understand how important it is to look after your roof all year round. When it comes to roofing, East Sussex is prone to showers and heavy rain throughout the year, so you should not be complacent about your roof during the warmer months.
That said, your roof won’t suffer as much damage as it will during the harsh winter months, so it is the perfect time to carry out all of your maintenance while you can.
Jobs For Summer
By following these simple steps, whether you need a flat roof repair or simple maintenance, East Sussex team Podesta Roofing will ensure your roof stays in tip-top shape.
Carry Out A Full Inspection
When it comes to roofing, East Sussex team Podesta Roofing always recommend making inspections on a regular basis.
Bright summer mornings are the perfect time to inspect your roof, as you will be able to see everything clearly. You will also not run the risk of breaking shingles that can become fragile during the midday heat.
When inspecting your roof, always make sure that you give your gutters the once over. Debris from trees and poor weather can collect quickly and if they are not cleared it can cause major problems both inside and outside your home.
When it comes to roofing, East Sussex Podesta Roofing team will carry out all aspects of work, including guttering, if you are not able to do it yourself.
Replace Missing Or Damaged Slates
As soon as you detect faulty or missing tiles, you should replace them, even if you are not expecting poor weather over summer. A leaking roof can cause lots of internal damage, especially if you use your attic space as an additional room in your home.
If you find that you constantly have to replace tiles it may be worth investing in a brand new roof.
Inspect All Ventilation
If you do use your attic space as a bedroom or a spare room, you will need to check that your ventilation system is in full working order.
Loft/attic space will get very hot during the summer, which can put stress on the roof, causing cracks and broken tiles.
Invest In A Professional Service
If you are handy and generally carry out home improvements yourself, then you can do the summer roofing checks, but care should be taken. Climbing high using a ladder can be dangerous and you will need to make sure that you are safe.
Employing an experienced roofing company will give you peace of mind that the job will be carried out safely and effectively.
