Frequently asked questions about roofing
Eventually all roofs will start to leak due to broken tiles, biological growth (moss, mould and fungus), cracked bedding and pointing, storm damage, natural weathering and inexperienced people walking on the roof.
After many years the coating on a cement tile will virtually become non-existent leaving the cement substrate of the tile exposed. If this is left for a long enough period the tiles will weaken due to water absorption and will require replacement.
Terracotta tiles will become covered in moss and lichen over time, this completely changes the appearance of a roof. The moisture in this growth can potentially weaken tiles over lengthy periods of time. The growth can also build up and cause blockages in the water channels on the tiles. This will cause an internal leak resulting in ceiling or structural damage if left unchecked.
Some people will decide to restore their roof purely for aesthetic reasons whilst others will restore to increase the longevity of their roof and increase piece of mind. After all, the roof is on the front line protecting the family and possessions inside.
We always try our best to ensure that once a project is started, we will continue working on that project until it is 100% complete before starting the next project. However there may be times when this is not possible especially due to weather conditions.
We understand that each individual circumstance varies, so we will strive to tailor a solution that will meet your own personal and financial needs.
