During the summer the weather is nicer and drier! you may find you do not experience the typical leaks that some do during the wetter months however this is the best time to give your roof a check over to avoid those costly emergency repairs!
Without ventilation such as tile vents and air bricks, moisture can build in the loft with the additional summer heat and the cooler nights this can cause the rafters inside your roof to rot and in turn weaken affecting the structure of your home. Pop into your loft, Check for damp/mould spots and or a musty smell, if you do come across anything contact a roofing contractor such as GS Roofing to provide a FREE quotation upon their findings.
The roof is the highest point of your home and is constantly absorbing the UV radiation from the sun, depending on the type and colour of your roofing tiles as some absorb the radiation quicker than others. Look up at your roof you will notice that the shingle is coated in a UV protection over time these little pebbles will fall off and gradually the roof will get worse leaving holes and no protection from the elements. If any shingles need replacing contact a professional who will be able to replace these avoiding keeping your property safe.
If there is a wet summer or you have a north facing roof and high trees near your home, you will need to regularly check for moss growth as when leaving moss, it will eventually start to anchor to the tiles making it increasingly difficult to remove. When this happens, your roof will be in danger to excessive moisture as moss acts like a sponge and will help the moss growth, in turn stripping the protective oils from the shingles and making them susceptible to erosion and sun damage, if ignored the buildup of moisture will begin to invade your home leading to rotten rafters and damp. To remove moss never use a pressure washer as this can cause further damage to the shingles and tiles, always contact a trained roofer who will be able to remove the moss safely and effectively.

Gary and his staff did a maintenance job over several days on my 500 year old cottage. They worked fast and efficiently and replaced several hundred frost damaged tiles and repointed where necessary. I am very satisfied with the work and price and would recommend them to anyone.
G S Roofing has been our trusted roofer for a few years now and we have always found them to be reliable and reasonable with their costs. We are pleased with the work they have carried out for us and will continue to use him in the future.
We've just had our gutters done again by GS roofing. Have used them twice now, very polite very good. We would highly recommend them. Excellent service.
I had an issue with pigeons on my roof. Called GS roofing and the have sorted the problem. They responded quickly to come round and it was sorted in no time. Very professional; wanted to fix the problem and generally a really good experience. Would highly recommend. Thanks so much.
Gary came out twice on a weekend and stopped water coming into our son's bedroom! We were so grateful.
Gary and his team replaced our whole roof at the end of last year. They did an excellent job and were a really lovely team. They worked hard, worked tidy and were very friendly. We have now used them again to replace some slipped and broken slates on our garage roof (we haven't had the garage roof done before). Again they have done an excellent job. I would definitely recommend GS Roofing (and I have)!
I have no words to describe how amazing Gary was. First thing most importantly he is such a nice and kind gentleman. And ofcourse such a knowledgeable and sensible trade person I have ever came across. He is not a time waster as he value his client's time. He does his job up to high standard with no doubt. I am one of the happy customer and will shout out for him. I will highly recommend him and his team. And I will definitely use him again for my other roof jobs. Thank you Gary and All the very best.
