A roofing contractor in Dunstable could also be used to provide a cleaning service for your home's or businesses roof. In this country our damp and typically mild climatic conditions provides the perfect environment for moss, mould and algae to flourish and spread out on your roof top.

This may also create issues by blocking downpipes and gutters and must be resolved as soon as it is discovered to prevent it resulting in further damage.

Roofers work on, and roofs are made from, a number of materials, all having their own particular quirks and foibles. It is going to need an expert Dunstable roofer to understand the intricacies of these materials and effectively using them isn't for the faint hearted. Such roofing materials could include: waterproof fibreboard sheets, concrete or terracotta tiles, slates, metal, straw thatching, bituminous felt, EPDM rubber, corrugated sheets and polycarbonate.

Before work starts a competent roofer will visit your house and perform an inspection of the job to make fully certain that they can provide the best quality of workmanship and service. At this time they'll also note down any particular circumstances, for example different materials or tricky locations and shapes of roof.

One critical aspect that you need to think about if you are replacing a roof is that so as to follow the latest building regs, you must inform the local authority for Dunstable if you are planning to replace more than 50% of the roof area. This needs to be done not less than 48 hours before the work is due to begin. Failure to do this can result in a fine of five thousand pounds plus the costs of correcting any work that does not satisfy the necessary standards laid out in the building regs.
