Why ELC for roofing repairs?
It’s difficult for us to give direct quotes and prices for slipped or cracked roof tiles. This is because we need to discover the root of the problem!
A slipped tile can happen because of several things, for example, individual failures, the nibs that hold the tile might have broken off, or the nails holes have broken.
High winds are often a common reason for tiles being dislodged from the wooden batten they sit on and even corrosion of the nails.
Invite us to your property to carry out an inspection (free of charge), which will tell us the reason. From here, we’ll be able to give you an accurate, affordable quote with no hidden extras. See costs.
When it comes to roof repairs, you do not want to delay.
Although the average lifespan of a roof tile is around 60 years (depending on the material), they are susceptible to damage or can dislodge for a number of reasons.
Often when repair works are not carried out quickly enough, the roof is open to rainwater damage, which can get into your property and further increase your repair costs.
When the structural timbers of a roof are exposed to these damp conditions and do not have a sufficient amount of time to dry out, they can and eventually will rot.
Therefore, the amount of work and hours needed to replace structural timbers would be much more expensive than carrying out repair work to flashings, valleys and roof tiles.
