In order to fix your Roof I can carry out the following for you:
- Replace old roof tiles with new roof tiles
- Replace underlying felt and battens with new felt and battens

- Create an insulated Fiberglass flat roof
- Replace gutters soffits and fascias with new ones

Most roof leaks are a result of old or defective felt, battens, tiles or lead flashing on roof valleys. To highlight the impact that defective felt can have on a roof, simply take a look at the picture below which was taken from a Bristol roofing project (click to see it larger). Roof tiles can often mask the underlying problem of rotten felt, once the roof tiles were uncovered, the extend of the roof damage due to rotten felt was soon revealed.
Roof maintenance as can be seen from the picture below involves replacing old and rotten felt and bettens with a new water tight breathable membrane and new battens. When the new protective layer is in place, the roof tiles are layered on top. This is a job I can undertake and give you a free estimate for. Feel free to contact me and I will promptly get back to you in the evening outside of property maintenance hours.
The picture on the right is from another roofing project in progress highlighting some of the work that roof work caninvolve.
Old coping stones are replaced with new ones, and a newbreathable membrane is layed which protects from water leaks. New battens placed on top of the membrane, and new roof tiles are placed on top ofthe battens. Leadwork is done on the edges of tiles and chimney stacksto ensure that the roof is water tight.
The image to the left is the same roof as pictured right above and was taken upon completion from a different angle.
