COMMON QUESTIONS

To make your next project as stress-free as possible, I’ve put together an extensive list of questions and answers to lay out the information you must know before we start working together. If you still have questions, contact me for more info.

 

HOW MUCH DOES ROOF REPAIR COST?


The cost of roof repairs can vary greatly as it is dependent on various factors including the size of the roof as well as the material. If you are interested in roof repair then the best thing to do is to call us to arrange a roof assessment where we can offer you a free no-obligation quote. 

HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT MY ROOF TO LAST?

Most roofing systems should last you around 20 to 30 years. However, many roofing materials, including slate, clay tile and various metals can last a lot longer. Choosing the highest quality materials from a professional roofing contractor is a for sure way to ensure that your roof lasts you as long as possible.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE IF I NEED TO REROOF?

There are two options available: You can either opt for a complete replacement of your roof system, by completely removing your roofing system, or alternatively you can simply cover the existing roof with a new roofing system. Generally, you will need to check with a professional as you are usually only allowed one re-cover before you need a complete replacement.

IF MY ROOF IS DAMAGED, CAN I CARRY OUT THE REPAIR WORK MYSELF?

Unfortunately, most roof repair work should not be carried out by yourself. There is a reason that professional roofing contractors are trained to quickly and safely repair or replace roofing systems. Improper techniques can result in injuries as well as more damage to your roof. 


If, for some reason, you need to assess your roof yourself. It is important that you use a firmly secured and braced ladder with rubber safety feet to ensure that you are safe. Having someone to help you is also essential. You should also wear rubber-soles for much needed grip while climbing the ladder. 

IF MY ROOF IS LEAKING, DO I NEED A FULL ROOF REPLACEMENT?

Although a leaking roof is definitely a bad thing, it does not necessarily mean that you require a complete roof replacement. How much repair work needs to be done depends entirely on the level of damage that has been caused by the leak. If you are unsure, the best thing to do is to talk to a professional to understand whether a minor repair or full roof replacement is required

CAN YOU CLAIM ROOF REPAIR ON INSURANCE?

Although part of the cost of roof repairs are often covered by insurance, it is very uncommon that full coverage is given. Full coverage can be given in the event that the roof was previously in very good condition before it became damaged and if the cause of damage is included in the coverage.

WHAT IS GRP FIBERGLASSING ROOFING? 

The GRP is highly resistant due to being formulated from flexi-resins that form to complete a full composite material.

The GRP Fibreglass is fully bonded making it fully resistant to water, the GRP is seamless and robust allowing regular foot traffic to walk upon it. The amazing GRP system can accommodate any architectures with the ability to mould and shape around any complex shape but still maintaining its integrity in all weathers.
