Roof Repairs Essex - Step by Step Guide
The first step towards a beautifully restored Essex roof begins when you call us for a free, no obligation roof inspection. Our experienced roof repair technicians in Essex will conduct a thorough survey to evaluate the condition of your roof. We will look for signs of roof damage and wear, including:
Cracked, broken or disintegrating cement mortar
Corroded, damaged or dislodged tiling
Any indication of structural weakness
Dislodged or corroded flashing
Once the survey is complete, we will give you a quotation so you can make an informed decision about having the repair work done.
The decision to proceed with repairs rests entirely with you. Our knowledgeable staff will be available to answer your questions or address any concerns you may have—without any sales pressure whatsoever.
Strict adherence to safety regulations is vital with any roof installation project. We use specially designed access equipment to ensure the safe and proficient installation of your Roofline products.
Before beginning work on your roof in Essex, our installation team will carry out a comprehensive safety assessment to ensure that there are no safety or health concerns.
Next, we will spare no detail when preparing your roof and home. We will take care to cover and protect any exposed areas such as your flower beds, lawn, driveway, patio, conservatory and decking with sheets of PVC.
We will carefully repair or replace any cracked or broken roof tiles, replace broken pointing and restore and seal the lead flashing. These repairs are included in the total cost of your roof restoration in Essex.
Gutters and drains will be covered or disconnected to avoid any blockages during and after the cleaning process.
If there is any indication of the presence of asbestos, our surveyor will send a sample of the material in question to be analysed in an approved laboratory.
If the material is found to be asbestos insulation board, the next step is to have it removed by a specialty contractor who is licensed by the HSE.
Any asbestos waste will then be disposed of properly, in full compliance with safety standards set forth in the Special Waste Regulations.
We thoroughly clean the roof tiles to eliminate every trace of moss, algae, lichen, dirt and grime. We use high pressure water jets that can effectively strip away even years of buildup.
Roof cleaning in Essex typically results in tonnes of waste material, which our crew will clear away and remove from your property. We will also check gutters and downpipes to be sure they are free from blockage.
If necessary we can also apply a Fungicide Treatment. We use a fungicidal solution that penetrates the tiles and kills moss, fungus, algae and lichen down to the roots.
It also prevents re-growth for at least ten years, usually longer.
This fungicide has been formulated to destroy only fungus, algae and lichen; it is completely safe and will not affect your flowers, grass or shrubbery.
We will carefully repair or replace any cracked or broken roof tiles and replace broken pointing.
We will also restore and seal the lead flashing.
