The roofline of your property is important but many people fail to understand why – until it is not functioning correctly! As so as your guttering or other roofline components begin to fail, you will notice the rainwater gushing from the external walls and the roof of your property; the walls will begin to stain and you will notice the earth, driveway or flower beds around your property all of a sudden have large ‘craters’ appearing.
But, as you may not have studied the components of your roofline before, S&D Projects are here to help!
And the roofline of your property is...?
Simply put, it is where the walls of the property meet the roof. It is vulnerable because the roofline components are the ones that are subject to - and deal with – the most ferocious of weathers, from driving rain to gale force winds. Unfortunately, unless we are particularly vigilant, problems or maintenance issues with your roofline tend to go unnoticed until it malfunctions completely.
Rainwater, ice and snow, as well as other form of precipitation, is probably the harshest element to hit our roof, walls and roofline. To preserve the structure and integrity of your property, you need to shift this rainwater away from your home as quickly and as swiftly as possible.
To do this, is a network of gutters and downpipes. Fitted correctly and running freely, rainwater will soon find its way from the roof, down the pipes and into the sewers. The roofline of many a Glasgow property have not been updated for some time and so they can, over time, become damaged , blocked etc and so the rainwater cannot flow as freely.
Water will find the shortest and quickest way down from height; hence, it will overspill guttering and either cascade down your property or run down your walls. Once or twice might not cause too much of a problem but, if it continues, you could end up with some problem inside your property.
Top Tip – if you need or decide to replace the roofline on your property, replace the whole network with the same system, rather than just replacing one or two components. This ensures the joints and junctions are all the same; the system should function better as well as be more pleasing on the eye.
Replacing your roofline on your property is not the expensive job that you think, especially if you use a local, reputable firm such as S&D Projects.
We can replace whole roofline systems as well as repair and maintain the current structure. If you think your roofline needs some attention, get it done know BEFORE it causes extensive problems in and outside of your property.
