Don’t be fooled by the warm, early autumn weather that we are currently experiencing. You may have already noticed that nip in the air early morning and in the evening. Winter is definitely coming and, while we hate to be the voice of doom, you need to be prepared and see to it that you don’t fall victim to any winter flat roof issues!
Don’t Wait for Winter Flat Roof Issues to Appear
It’s easy to put things off when the sun is shining. We get distracted as other things become priority but don’t wait for the bad weather to discover you should have had your flat roof replaced sooner. Instead, take a moment to organise a roof inspection at least. It doesn’t hurt to have the experts assess your old flat roof to see what kind of shape it is and whether it will withstand a cold British winter.
The Potential Damage Caused by Winter
Winter flat roof issues are the reason that we get lots of calls from November to February. Often, these calls are for damage caused, leaks and other remedial works that could have been avoided had the roof been checked sooner. Once the temperatures reach sub-zero, the old roof materials can become cracked and damaged – once damage has occurred, it is only a matter of time before the water finds its way in.
Don’t Let Winter Flat Roof Issues Cost More
Don’t let the first sign of problems be water coming in through the roof. This counts for your home and any outbuildings. If you keep tools and other things in the garage, you don’t want them to be damaged by damp or water. While a new roof may be an expense that you want to put off for as long as possible, repairing a damaged ceiling, walls and carpets is an additional expense that can be avoided.
