Cost of a new roof – Great value plus top craftsmanship and polite service
Improper Design — Roofing problems are sometimes caused by the incorrect initial design of the roofing system. Design mistakes early on are financially costly to remedy and normally can only be corrected during a complete roof replacement.
Flashing Failures — Flashings provide watertight joins between roofing materials and roof projections, for example between your roof tiles and your chimney. They can also be used between different roof sections. Flashings are the most vulnerable part of your roof. But the good news is that they are easily replaced if they show signs of ageing or begin to let in water. Their importance to the health of the roofing system cannot be underestimated, as the roof is only as strong as its weakest part.
