The roof of any property is integral to the entire building envelope. Not only does it offer protection from the elements, but it also provides structural support and security. To keep staff, stock and equipment safe, it is imperative that the roof is maintained and in tip‑top condition.
Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind
Often the exterior of a roof is overlooked, as it’s not easy to view unless from a distance or from a height. Without regular inspections, it’s hard to keep track of what is going on up there. However, with the use of drones, it’s easier than ever for a trained professional to inspect the vast expanse of a roof area quickly and safely, providing a detailed report to the management. This means both decisions and work can be carried out efficiently.
Act Fast To Save Time And Cost
Carrying out a maintenance inspection on your roof and identifying any problems early saves a great deal of time long‑term. Most roofing issues can be resolved quickly and easily if caught quickly. These issues include blocked gutters, which may be causing leaks or pools of water; cut‑edge corrosion, which starts in small areas but spreads over time, and rooflight refurbishment to clean dirt and debris, allowing natural light to enter the building’s interior.
Don’t Leave It ‘Just That Little Bit Longer’
If you don’t act now and decide to leave any inspections until a later date, or fail to carry out recommended work at all, then you might just find that trouble is around the corner. Damage will not go away on its own and will progress to develop into more serious problems. For example, once cut‑edge corrosion starts eating away at the edge of sheets or at fixing points, the damage can be serious enough to cause a hole, which when left open allows water to enter. The ultimate danger is that a sheet could become loose, falling from the building.

Solutions For Roofing
There are different roofing problem solutions depending on the condition of your roof. Let’s take a look at the most common ones:
The job of a gutter system is to efficiently carry water away from the roof and down into the drainage system. If a gutter is blocked, it can’t do this. The water will then back up and seep into the building or run down the walls. We offer a gutter cleaning and maintenance service to keep guttering systems working effectively and can refurbish any ageing or damaged gutters with our specialist gutter lining or coating systems. Whatever the condition, we can refurbish your gutters to look like new.
Cut‑edge corrosion occurs when the factory cut‑edge of a metal sheet is left exposed, without paint, which allows weathering. Then a reaction occurs, causing rust. As time goes by, the deterioration develops further back and across the sheet. This can be treated with one of our leading systems such as Tor Edge Protect or Seamsil to stop any further deterioration of the sheets. This service also comes backed with a guarantee of at least 10 years.
Roof coating is one of our most popular roofing services requested, and there are many reasons why you may need it. Sometimes you might require a new colour scheme, especially if you are re‑branding or just moving into a property. It could be that the existing paint is starting to age and chalk, crack or peel. If so, this is the time to re‑paint the surface before it starts to corrode.
Additionally, you might have had some cut‑edge corrosion work carried out on a targeted area, and you would prefer constant coverage and whole roof finish, which is more aesthetically pleasing. Whatever your reasons for requiring a new coating for your roof, we have the experience and expertise to complete roof coating work to the highest quality, with minimum disruption to your ongoing operations.
