If the roof of your home isn't actually damaged structurally but simply needs to be cleaned, your neighbourhood Southwick roofer would still be the person to call. The temperate and typically damp climatic conditions found all over Great Britain encourages the development of mould, algae and moss on our roofing, and aside from looking unsightly, this can also lead to issues that produce dripping and leakage within our roof spaces. Further impacts of this could be problems with gutters and drainage, which must be fixed before further damage can take place.

Roofers work on, and roofs may be constructed from, an array of materials, all of which have their own particular foibles and quirks. It requires a knowledgeable Southwick roofer to understand the complexities of such materials and using them is not for the faint hearted. Such materials may include: bituminous felt, corrugated sheets, thatch, metal, polycarbonate, slate tiles, EPDM rubber, waterproof fibreboard sheets and concrete or clay tiles.

Before any work starts an experienced roofer will visit and inspect the job to make fully sure that they can supply you with the best quality of workmanship and service. At this point they should also take note of any particular considerations, for instance different materials or awkward locations and roof shapes.

One additional issue that you need to take into account if you are doing a roof replacement is that in order to keep to the current building regs, you have to inform the local authority for Southwick if you're going to be replacing more than 50% of the roof area. This should be done at least 48 hrs before the work is due to commence. Failing to do this will lead to a statutory fine of £five thousand as well as the costs of fixing any work that doesn't meet the necessary standards set out in the building regs. This fine is levied on the householder.
