Few people do more than a cursory glance at their roofing when taking in the shopping, but it is worth looking out every few months for some of the tell-tale signs that could mean your roof is struggling in one shape or another.
New roof or partial replacement? How to make the right decision
Depending on the severity of your roof damage you might not need a total replacement. When assessing your roofing a decision can be made as to how much to replace, and whether your roof falls into the 'repair' category.
If your roof is visibly damaged throughout it's entirety then you have very little option other than a total replacement. If A-frames and joists are bad then it is wise to replace them all (even if some seem okay). Typically if 50% of your roof needs replacing then a completely new roof should be considered to future-proof it against any further damage or decay.
If only a portion of your roofing (for instance a wing or extension) needs replacing it can be know as a partial replacement. This approach can save a great deal of money whilst preserving the integrity of your roofing structure. It's worth noting that having one new section, and one older section of your roof can lead to future problems if the older section degrades to the point of replacement, which is why many opt to replace the roof in it's entirety. Smaller works will then fall under the roofing repairs bracket.

From frequency to the replacement process, your questions answered

The answer to this question depends on your roof material. A tiled roof should last 40-50 years before the tiles need replacing. A clay roof should last anywhere up to 100 years. Slate roofing can last anything from 100-400 years. In fact with all long-lasting roof covering it is often the case that the wooden supports underneath need to be replaced before the tiles themselves. Other roof materials will last a shorter amount of time, for instance flat roofing is normally only guaranteed for 10-20 years, and thatch up to 50 years.
Taking a standard tile replacement job as an example... the job always starts with a visit from an assessor who will take detailed measurements of your roof and the structure supporting it. Once the job is approved, materials are ordered and necessary permits attained. Over a period of 3-5 days your roof tiles will be removed, and the structure underneath inspected and any damage rectified. The roof is then re-decked, re-sealed and the new tiles laid into position. Any flashing, caps and vents will also need to be installed to ensure the roof is completely watertight especially against elements such as chimneys.
Any quote you receive to replace you roofing should cover everything you need to complete the job. It should include all the materials needed including the roof covering, and underlay, flashing, gutters, vents etc. It should also include the complete removal and disposal of your old roof to save you being left with piles of old roof material. You should be given an approximate time for completion (though weather could hamper this) and you should also be given a warranty for both the materials and the installation.
These are just a few of the frequently asked questions we receive about replacement roofing , and we will continue to add to the list as we receive them. If you have any further questions it's best to simply get in touch with local roofers using our quick online form. You can benefit from their experience and get a quick quote for the work at the same time!

It's not uncommon for houses to need a replacement roof. When considering a new house purchase a survey should consider the condition of the current roof and you may have to factor in a replacement into the price you are willing to offer. Regardless of the fact that it is a large job, it's a relatively straightforward one that shouldn't deter you from making the purchase.

Office roofing tends to be flat and of different materials than home roofing. Typically they don't last as long as a tiled roof so will need replacing more regularly. That being said even a flat roof made from felt can have a 10-20 year guarantee so it isn't a regular expense to be considered. Your office roof might be corrugated, metal sheeting or even plastic. All of which can be replaced if needed and will provide you with many dry office years afterwards.
We receive numerous requests for a replacement garage roof. They can be anything from tiled extensions to a traditional house to separate buildings with tiled or flat roofs. Either way it's important to have a good roof in place, particularly if you are storing anything of value in them that needs to stay dry such as cars. Typically the costs are far lower than that of a house or office as they tend to be single-storey and far smaller.
flat roofing requests are numerous and cover a whole range of roofing styles and materials. So much so that we've dedicated a page on our website to them. From felt roofing that typically lasts 10-20 years to metal, plastic and fibreglass roofing. They were a popular choice of roof for outbuildings, garages, extensions and offices.
