With the approach of summer, do you think your roof can use a little update? Or perhaps you need to replace your roof entirely? While missing shingles and sagging gutters are the more obvious signs of your roof already in a state of disrepair, other problems may not be quite as obvious. It’s important to know when it’s time to replace your roof, and this may be sooner than you think.
Below is a list of problem signs to look for on your roof. When you see them, get in touch with your Surrey or Croydon roofer for further evaluation.
Water stains on ceiling
When you see water stains on your ceiling it shouldn’t be hard to deduce where the water is coming from-whatever is over your ceiling is usually the source of your leak problem. Once you’ve ruled out a leaky pipe, then the source of the problem is mostly on your roof. Read more from this blog. http://bit.ly/2pSTzAt
It’s spring time once again in Surrey, and homeowners around the area are starting their spring cleaning routines. Although most people think of spring cleaning as putting away the holiday décor and cleaning the interior of their homes, homeowners should also think about conducting a little spring cleaning on their roofs. With that in mind, here are a few spring cleaning tips from respected roofers in Surrey:
Work with a Buddy
Ask a friend or a family member to help you keep the ladder steady as your climb up and down. This is to prevent any shifts in balance that may cause you to fall off. Similarly, having someone around while you work assures you that there’s someone around to call emergency services in the event of a mishap.
Alternatively, you can use a pair of binoculars to scan your roof for any issues. Simply take note of all the problems you find and hand it over to a respected roofing service, like Brunwin Professional Roofing Services, Ltd., to give them a better idea of the work that needs to be done.

Many Surrey homeowners gravitate toward pitched roofing. Simple yet elegant, the roof style has managed to survive several thousand years, and though designs have evolved considerably over time, the principles of its construction are still practically the same. That said, they remain at great risk of buckling under heavy snow and ice accumulations, particularly those of the low-slope variety.
It’s not unusual for homes in Surrey to have several inches of snow on a roof in the winter. Thus, roofs in the area need to be strong enough to handle the extra weight that snow adds to the structure. In addition, a roof must be able to prevent ice dams, sliding snow, and too much icicles. The easiest and most sensible way to achieve these is to keep the roof as basic as possible. This means keeping additional roof features such as valleys, dormers, crickets, and mechanical roof penetrations such as vents and skylights to a minimum.

Surrey and Croyden see more than their fair share of precipitation throughout the course of a year. Naturally, the elements can take its toll on your roof and expose your home to the damaging effects of water. This is why experienced roofers often tell home owners to check the condition of their roofs at least twice a year: before summer and before winter.
For safety reasons, it’s best to use a pair of binoculars when inspecting your roof. This should prevent any fall accidents from occurring. Similarly, starting from the inside of your home would be the best place to start looking for any signs of damage:
Streaks of Sunlight in the Attic
Once you’re in your attic, try to see if there are any streaks of light coming through from the ceiling. The presence of these streaks is a quick indicator that your roof tiles have been breached, allowing any water that hits your roof to enter your home.
