Most of us don’t give a thought to the roof over our head – until it leaks. If you’re at that stage, you want to know whether you need a whole new roof or whether repair is an option.
At Redland we have over 90 years’ experience of supplying new roofing products and systems to every type of building in the UK. We know a thing or two about a roof – new or repaired.
Few people actively choose to replace their roof, but they don’t last for ever. If your roof is over 50 years old, it might be nearing the end of its life.
Our list of common roof repair questions should help you decide whether you are looking at a repair or a replacement. It’s usually worth asking for a new roof quote as you might find that the difference between the cost of a new roof and that of a significant repair may not be as much as you think.
That new roof cost can also turn out to be a good investment. A smart roof will revitalise and improve the look of your home as well as giving you the reassurance of a weathertight property for years to come. And if you’re thinking of selling, that’s an improvement that represents real cash value.
You’re unlikely to replace your roof just for its looks, but don’t just choose the first roofing materials suggested to you. Take some time to think about the options available and how they could enhance your property. Any new roof is a significant investment, and at the end of the project you will want to be thinking: “I love my new roof”.
