Small Roof Repairs Prevent Lasting Damage

Water that enters through even the smallest leak can ruin ceilings, and walls in your house. Mould can also grow on damp areas in your house, which can cause health problems for you and your family.

Roof repairs

Have you noticed a slate that has moved?

Perhaps a tile has become displaced or broken?

Maybe your felt roof has a tear?

When it rains a little bit harder than usual you’ve got a leaking roof?

These may seem like small, perhaps unimportant issues, but as much as you may like to, don’t put them off.


Common causes of roof damage

High Winds: can directly damage your roof, or blow debris onto it.

Wildlife: often live in the rafters, and can damage the surrounding materials.

Moss growth on the roof.

Weather: hot/cold changes can cause roof tiles and other materials to crack.

Regular, routine maintenance checks are the best way to ensure your roof lasts longer than its usual lifespan. Summer and Autumn are the ideal seasons to check for damage, so that you can ensure your roof is in perfect shape for the winter months.

Skyline Roofing Repairs & Maintenance Service

Whether you’ve got a felt, slate or tile roof, our roofing repair and maintenance services cover a variety of faults or issues.  Our roofers are highly skilled and provide the highest standard of work.

Moss Removal Services – Large patches of moss can hold water against the roof surface, causing it to rot. Additionally, the water can pool in small gaps between roof tiles, which can cause damage when it freezes. Removing moss yourself can be dangerous, and cause further damage so its best left to the experts.

Tile Repointing Services – Repointing is used when the mortar between tile roof components cracks or breaks apart. This sometimes leaves a gap where water can get under the tiles. Birds and rodents can also borrow in and make their nest under the tiles. Our repointing services will prevent this damage.

Chimney Repointing Services – Repointing is the process of renewing the ‘pointing’, which is the external part of mortar joints, in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay cause gaps in the joints between masonry units. This usually happens in bricks, allowing the undesirable entrance of water.

Removal and Replacement of Lead work – Lead is extremely durable, meaning poor installation causes most issues. The most common problem is leadwork simply coming loose from the wall and leaving a gap for rainwater. Over longer periods, leadwork can eventually split due to the exposure to British weather.

Tile Replacement Services – Slipped tiles or slates will be very easy to notice. They can result in larger amounts of rainwater hitting the underlay, putting it under increased pressure. If water pools build up in the area where a tile or slate has slipped, a leak into the inside of the roof is increasingly likely.

Re-cementing Ridge, Hip & Verge Tiles – Over time the cement on the roof can fail due to constant exposure to high winds and bad weather. They should last a few decades before needing to be replaced if fitted properly in the first place! Our professionals will remove the old mortar, then re-cement the ridge tiles.

Gutter Cleaning and Unblocking Services – Gutters direct rainfall away from your building to protect the outside of the property and the foundations. If there is a problem with the gutters it can cause water damage to your property.

Any Type of Leak Repair can Be Undertaken– Running out of buckets? It’s time to fix those leaks. Water typically comes in through several key areas:

Worn, broken, or missing shingles.

Where nails have worked loose. Through corroded or poorly sealed roof flashing around vents, skylights, chimneys or roof plane intersections.
