How to prepare your roof for Spring?
We all love it when the winter comes to an end. 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 your roof stays water tight and you don’t have any unexpected puddles in your home!

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.
