Common Roof Repairs Undertaken by Our Team

Leaking Roof – One of the most prevalent issues we encounter in both pitched and flat roofing systems around East Preston, Goring, Rustington and Worthing is a real hair raiser – the roof leak. Symptoms include water stains on ceilings and walls, dampness in loft spaces, and water dripping into living spaces when it rains. Ignoring a leaking roof can lead to mould growth, serious structural damage, damage to furnishings and possessions, as well as compromised insulation, resulting in increased energy bills.

Damaged or Missing Tiles & Slates – Tiles and slates can become damaged or go missing due to weather exposure, age or improper installation; this is one of the reasons why it’s so important to choose the right roofers for a new roof installation. The signs are often fairly obvious: you’ll see them cracked, curled, actively degrading – or they’ll be totally M.I.A! Neglecting to replace damaged or missing tiles and slates can result in water infiltration, leading to rotting of the roof deck and rafters. These latter roof repairs are far more expensive than a simple tile replacement.

Flashing Damage – Roofers install around roof penetrations such as chimneys, vents and skylights to prevent water intrusion. Damage to flashing can occur due to age, improper installation, or long enough exposure to severe weather conditions. Symptoms include visible gaps or cracks around penetrations and water stains on ceilings. Ignoring flashing damage can lead to extensive water damage and compromise the integrity of roof structures around East Preston, Goring, Rustington and Worthing.

Gutter Issues – Clogged or damaged gutters and downspouts can cause water to overflow and pool around the roof's perimeter, leading to water damage to fascias, soffits and external fittings/structures like windows, doors and walls. Symptoms include overflow, sagging or detachment, and water stains on exterior walls. Neglecting gutter maintenance can result in water infiltration into the loft space, again causing mould growth and wood rot.

Poor Ventilation – Inadequate attic ventilation can lead to moisture build-up, which can cause mould growth, wood rot, and premature aging of roofing materials. Symptoms that East Preston, Goring, Rustington and Worthing property owners should be on the lookout for include: excessive heat build-up in the loft, condensation on windows, and persistent musty odours. Ignoring poor ventilation can compromise the roof's structural integrity and decrease energy efficiency.
