Roofing Oxfordshire


All buildings need a foundation, floor, walls and roof; that goes without saying. But the difference between the flooring and the walls is that they are usually the parts of any building we see constantly so it is easy to monitor their state of repair and notice if there are any issues that need addressing before they become big problems. When it comes to roofing, we do not tend to go up and do regular checks so it is not monitored in the same way and any problems or repairs that need doing are not usually noticed until is a much bigger issue.
There are definite tell-tale signs that give away when there is a big problem with your roofing and some repair work is needed urgently. Here are a few of the things you should look out for:
1. Roof Leaks
Leak and water marks that appear on an internal ceiling of a building are a big give away that part of the roof is in disrepair. Roofing leaks can be caused by anything from broken shingles to cracked flashing. Leaks tend to happen because of extreme weather like heavy rain or snow and this can cause moisture to get in through a damaged portion of the roof and then that moisture forms under the layers of the roofing. The moisture can just soak through over a period of time or it can be dripping directly through from the roof in to a building space.
2. Clogged gutters
Clogged gutters can be more of an issue for roofing than people realise. Gutters can become clogged with lots of different things such as debris, rubbish, moss or leaves. Because the gutter is clogged and not taking any water away it can lead to standing water around your roofing. When left there for long periods of time with no drainage, the water can eventually seep in to the roofing’s wood work around the building which increases the likelihood of internal damp, mould and leaks as well as weakening the structural integrity of the roof.
3. Shrinkage
Believe it or not roofing can have the tendency to shrink if not properly installed. Shrinking can happen because of extreme differences in weather and temperatures.
