A home is way more than merely the place where you hang your hat. It’s where you retreat, relax, rest and rejoice in happy memories, not to mention the place where you keep your treasured belongings. If your home is in the lively city of Leeds, which oozes character with its popular football team and exciting student and music scene, you’re no doubt doubly proud of your Leeds home.
So why not show how much pride you have in your home by giving the external elements of your property such as your roofline and guttering, the same care and attention you dedicate to the inside of your home?
At Ploughcroft we often meet people who are inclined to clean their roofline themselves, which is perfectly acceptable but it can also be valuable to have expert and experienced roofers such as ourselves provide your roofline with professional maintenance.
Highly trained and qualified roofers, our roofing craftsmen know for instance, that the roofline doesn’t just comprise of guttering, which is a shallow trough fitted underneath the edge of a roof that gathers and transports waste rainwater away from the house via a ‘down pipe’.
Fascias provide a base for the guttering and support it and the bottom of low roof tiles. They also stop damp and rot by protecting the rafters from being penetrated by water. Soffits are the boards between a property’s wall and the fascias. They prevent animals from building nests in the roof space, whilst shielding the rafters from rain and damp.
Ploughcroft’s proficient roofers also have safe High-Level Access meaning no roof is out of reach plus, by getting our team to replace, repair or clean your roofline, you can save yourself a considerable amount of time which is always a bonus!
We take the approach of not recommending a full-scale roofline replacement straight away. Instead, we take the time to carry out an in-depth assessment of your guttering and Roof and make informed decisions on what is best for your home.
Leaving debris leaves to accumulate in your guttering can cause it to come away from its fitting altogether, whilst an overflow of water from leaking or damaged rooflines will always find a way of running down from your roof, causing the joists and beams of your roof and eventually the internal walls of your home to become damp leading to other problems that are more expensive to remedy.
During Winter, the waste water can also freeze and make guttering sag. Birds who have made their home in your roofline can contribute to guttering distortion too.
As vibrant a city as Leeds is, it is still just as vulnerable to regular bad weather and downpours as any other typical Northern England city is. Not keeping on top of your roofline maintenance can lead to more costly and serious problems for your property further down the line so why delay?
