When investing in a new home or commercial property there are lots of considerations that you have to make. One of the things that is often overlooked during the process is the roof. However, failure to have the roof checked can result in serious cost implications and significant repairs at a later date.

Industrial Roofing Services we specialise in the delivery of comprehensive roof surveys for both commercial and residential clients. We can undertake a thorough survey of the roof and identify any potential defects or weaknesses in the roof which could present cause for concern or require further investigation.

Roofs are an essential component of your home and they are designed to keep the warmth in and the water out. It also serves as an important structural element in your home or business, making it even more important to ensure that it is structurally sound and stable before you commit to purchasing a property.

There are some common signs that you should look for that could indicate that a roof survey is an absolute must:

  • Dark streaks or moisture on the joists or in the ceiling tiles
  • Sagging of the roof
  • Water damage and leaks
  • Light emerging from the outside
  • Damaged to the roof structure, either cracks, missing tiles, curled, or loose tiles can indicate a problem
  • A roof that is more than 30 years old
  • Moss, mould or algae on the roof
  • Roof debris such as pieces of tile in guttering which could be a sign that the roof is starting to deteriorate
