Do you remember back when your parents told you that always make sure you have a roof over your head and then everything in life would be fine? This was sound advice and hopefully, you have taken heed of their teachings and secured yourself a property for you and your family to live in. That same roof that is over your head right now takes a beating throughout the year and for some reason, many people here in Scotland think that it doesn’t need any help in doing so.

The opposite is in fact true and there is a lot going on up there that you are not aware of and that you can’t see from the street. No one is encouraging you to get up there on the roof and especially so if it is a two-storey property that you live in. You should always make sure that you get your roof checked at least once a year by professionals and if you have absolutely no idea where to start then click here where you will be provided with all of the solutions that you could possibly need.

The following are just some of the top roofing issues that we in Scotland have to deal with all the time.

  • Loose & cracked tiles – If you are experiencing any of these things then this provides an opportunity for rainwater to make its way through the felt underneath and then into your attic space. Once this happens, you’re looking at quite a lot of money to get it repaired and so it makes a lot more sense to get your service provider up onto the roof to replace any loose or cracked tiles.
  • Moss & algae – We all know that Scotland gets a lot of rain throughout the year and with all of this rain comes dampness. This is the perfect breeding ground for moss and algae to grow and it can build up over the years covering your whole roof and your tiles. This needs to be removed as soon as possible and so you can talk to your service provider who will get up there and clean it away.

These are only a couple of the issues that are probably happening on your roof right now and so get your roof checked as soon as you possibly can.
