The weather in Keighley, Bradford, Leeds and the wider West Yorkshire area tends to pop up all too frequently in our everyday conversation. But too few people discuss its effect on the roofs of their properties. With rain, hail, snow and wind battering the slate and tiles atop our homes, it comes as no surprise that, sooner or later, those materials are going to fail. As a roofing contractor and building contractor with 40 years of experience, and with domestic customers and clients in commercial facilities management, we know only too well that problems with roofs are usually discovered when it’s too late.
But, with a keen eye and simple maintenance, you can save yourself time, money and the stresses of emergency roof repairs.

To protect the exposed overhang of roofing timber, to regulate airflow through the roof space and to remove rainwater as swiftly as possible, the soffits, fascias and guttering of your Bradford, Leeds or West Yorkshire property need to be in full working order. As any roofing contractor will confirm, not only are they an aesthetic touch, but they are also a vital part of a roofing system that helps minimise the need for long-term property repairs.
After years of reliability, roofing materials eventually fail. Tiles slip or crack, felt corrodes, chimney mortar crumbles, flashing loosens, membranes shrink and blister; when roofing materials reach the end of their lifespan, they leave holes and cracks that water can penetrate. Over a prolonged period, this exposes the timber of your roof to problems like rot and structural damage.
As an experienced roofing contractor with experience in domestic and commercial facilities management, we know that the condition of your roof isn’t always on your mind. But indicators like standing water on flat roofs, damps spots on ceilings below the roof or loft and water spots on roofline products suggest all is not well with your roofing system. These issues can range in severity, but the sooner you catch them the better.
