If a reroof isn’t an option or you simply want to replace your whole roof now to save stress later, talk to us about a new roof. While it can seem like a huge undertaking, at MJB we work hard to make the process as stress-free as possible.

Why Might You Need a New Roof?

Many homeowners and landlords would rather repair their roof than be faced with the prospect of replacing it and the expense that brings with it. However, if you’ve just bought a property and the survey has flagged up that the roof might be replacing sooner rather than later or if you’ve been told that your roof is damaged beyond repair, you may opt for full roof replacement.

Signs Your Roof is Failing

Some roofs may seem to fail without warning, but if you keep an eye on it, you should be able to tell when your roof is in danger and when it’s time to call in the experts. These are some common signs that may lead to a full roof replacement (or a reroof or repair):

  • If your roof is leaking, this could be due to missing tiles, blocked gutters or various other reasons, but a leaking roof could irreparably damage the structure of your roof. Getting a leak fixed quickly might be the difference between a straightforward repair and a new roof installation.
  • If a roof looks like it’s drooping or sagging, there may be underlying structural issues that need attention from a professional roofer. It’s possible that your roof simply needs extra rafters or struts to stabilise it or it could be that the roof is too heavy for the house. This can occur if reroofing has taken place and materials have been layered on top of each other.
  • Excess moisture on a roof may lead to mould, moss and fungi forming. By their nature, flat roofs are susceptible to this as their slight pitch may not be enough to drain away moisture. If the mould makes it into the home, a replacement roof may be required.
  • Damaged flashing around the chimney can make a property vulnerable to pest invasion as well as water damage. Again, the presence of these pests could damage the structure of your roof and mean replacement is necessary.
  • If all houses in an area were built around the same time, it might be worth noticing when neighbours are replacing their roofs as it could be a sign they’re reaching the end of their natural life cycle.
