We all love it when the winter dissolves, We start preparing our gardens for our upcoming gatherings but many of us neglect the roof over our heads. Below our some tips to ensure your roof stays watertight.

Clean your roof of debris

Use heavy duty gloves to collect the debris and ensure you are not putting yourself at risk, Use a rake to reach areas out of your reach, Don’t forget to check the gutters and down pipes for debris as when the rain and snow has landed it needs somewhere to drain and if your gutters and down pipes aren’t clear, it will start damaging your roof tiles causing additional damage. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on surrounding trees to ensure they are not filling up the gutters!

Clearing animal nests

The spring is when animals like to come out and build their nests in whatever space they can find, This can cause significant damage as they are digging, chewing and burrowing. It is vital though that the debris is removed before the animals have laid their eggs as like us they can become very protective over their young.

Schedule a roof survey

After winter has hit we strongly advise getting a professional to complete a inspection, A licensed contractor specialises in spotting areas of potential risk before it turns in to a major issue. Regular inspections should be performed before and after summer to ensure you roof stays water tight and you don’t run in to any unexpected puddles in your home!

Here at GS Roofing we pride ourselves in overcoming roofing issues before they get to a emergency stage, We are fully insured and can complete all of the above for our clients. We will provide our clients with photos so they can fully see anything we have found that appears to be a problem which in turn helps to build trust with our new clients.

Removal and replacement of existing flat roof and fascia boards

Really happy with this. Gary and his colleague were polite, prompt and helpful with both the quote and the work; the price was good. Even when a second flat roof was discovered under the one he was removing, he carried out the extra work without complaint and didn't charge me any extra. He cleared all the rubbish and left everything neat and tidy. Excellent customer service and I have recommended him to others several times over.

New Roof

Can't fault these guys. I was recommended Gary from my friend and I wasn't disappointed! Roof isn't massive but was in a bad state, they stayed on late to get the job finished the same day. Arrived at 7am like arranged, was respectful of my neighbours. He visited my friend at 3am during a downpour to cover a hole in her roof so I'm sure if I have any issues he's just a phone call away. Thanks Gary your work was much appreciated.

We had 5 Velux windows fitted by G S Roofing. Removed old slates cut roof truss things and out new windows in the roof

Fast, efficient, minimum mess, no leaks, no call backs to fix anything. All done in a fast and efficient time, Gary is punctual and knowledgeable, he knows what he's doing and does it at a good price. He isn't interested in making a fast buck, he's more into making long term relationships with his customers. I will be using him again.
