But over time, problems with any roof can occur, due to natural wear and tear, and the breaking down of components. So what are the most common domestic roof repairs? And why should you consider hiring a professional team to repair your roof?

What are the most common domestic roof repairs?

There are a whole range of problems that can occur with any domestic roof, no matter what type of roof this is. Flat roofs, felt roofs and tiled roofs will all need repairing, or even replacing, at some point. The most common repairs include:

  • Replacing slipped roof tiles- in bad weather and high winds roof tiles that have begun to deteriorate already will be more likely to work lose and fall off. This leaves a gap on your roof, where water ingress could occur. Especially in the winter months. This problem will be compounded further by snow and ice. So if your roof has lost a tile, or several, you should have these replaced as soon as possible.
  • Replacing flashing- the flashing on your domestic roof is used to direct water away from the roof, where the plane of the roof meets a vertical surface like a wall. This is used around chimney’s, vents and skylights. Over time, this can become loose and even fall off, leaving your roof vulnerable to water damage. Replacing the flashing is a job for a professional team, because of how important this roof component is.
