Common roofing checks that need to be carried out…

Every building and roof is different so the checks that need to be carried out may vary from business to business. But overall the some of the checks will be the same throughout.

  • Inspection of your gutters. You need to ensure that there is nothing in your gutters so they don’t get blocked. Any moss or debris that could have fallen into your gutters could cause a blockage through your pipes. If this were to happen, you could be left with a much more serious problem of a leak or damp patches in your roof.
  • Checking all of your vents- your vents need to be fully sealed so that you know if they are working correctly. A regular monthly or bi-monthly inspection will allow you to see if there are any problems.
  • Checking for wear and tear. Everything deteriorates overtime and that includes your roof. Make sure that there are no gaps, holes or areas where the roofing material is moving away.
