If you asked anyone, and that includes the people that don’t live here, what the weather is like in the United Kingdom, you would get an immediate answer that it rains all the time. They are right and alongside the rain, we have wind, hail and occasionally snow and all of these take their toll on the roof of our property. We forget, sometimes, that the roof is the one thing that is protecting our whole home or business and if it isn’t in great shape, then it is going to leak and when that happens, you are definitely in trouble.
We add things like UPVC guttering from Oxford, as well as soffits and fascia to protect our homes and their purpose is to keep the rain out and our homes dry. There are a number of things that you can do to protect your home.
- Due to the wet weather we get in the UK, tiles and slates tend to have a build up of moss and algae and this affects the roof as water is retained there, Getting it cleaned off is advised.
- Your guttering is going to get clogged up due to being full of leaves and twigs and once again, the rain water cannot escape from the roof. Get these cleaned as soon as possible.
- Check that all fixtures from your guttering like brackets are all tightly in place and if screws or brackets need replaced, do that and make sure all screws are screwed in tightly.
Take care of your roof and it will certainly take care of your property and protect its value.
