Your questions regarding the roofline of your home answered
The roofline of your home is important in protecting the strength and integrity of your building. Without it, the interior of our homes would be a lot damper and a lot less comfortable. The and immediately surrounding your home would also be waterlogged and unpleasant in wet weather.
In most cases, the roofline of a property is a simple system, made up of a series of components. When they are in need of repair and replacement, they are relatively inexpensive ones to make.
Is it a job that I could do myself?
With the right skill set, the right tools, the right pieces of replacement kit and in most cases, a head for heights too, then technical the answer would be yes. But why struggle when you can rely on a professional company to do it for you?
Although simple, there are a few issues of which you need to be aware. For example, contrary to common belief, the guttering on your property should not be level. There needs to be a pitch angled in the direction of the nearest drain pipe.
On some properties, there will be all kinds of different components and the system may be large and thus, calling in the professionals is the best way forward.
Does guttering need replacing on a regular basis?
The guttering, an important components part of the roofline on your home, will last the test of time for years.
However, there are times when it can be broken down by the weather – for example, frozen rainwater when it thaws out can crack a plastic gutter – and when this does happen it pays to get the section replaced as soon as possible.
Many guttering and roofline components are stand-alone components and so when one part is in need of repair, it doesn’t automatically follow that the whole roofline needs to be replaced.
What else can I do to make sure that the roofline on my property remains ship-shape?
Like most things, the roofline of your home will benefit from regular maintenance. Just having an annual clean of the guttering, checking that the components are all securely fixed and so on, can be money well-spent.
