General Asked Questions

  • Can you claim roof repair on insurance?

  • What options are available if I need to reroof?
    There are two options available: You can either opt for a complete replacement of your roof system, by completely removing your roofing system, or alternatively you can simply cover the existing roof with a new roofing system. Generally, you will need to check with a professional as you are usually only allowed one re-cover before you need a complete replacement.
  • How long can I expect my roof to last?
    While most roofing systems are expected to last around 20 years, some materials like slate, clay tile, and various metals can last much longer. Choosing the highest quality materials from a professional roofing contractor can significantly extend the lifespan of your roof. Additionally, it is advisable to look for a roofing contractor who offers a warranty to ensure that you are covered in the event of any future damages to your roof.
  • If my roof is damaged, can I carry out the repair work myself?
    Unfortunately, most roof repair work should not be carried out by yourself. There is a reason that professional roofing contractors are trained to quickly and safely repair or replace roofing systems. Improper techniques can result in injuries as well as more damage to your roof. If, for some reason, you need to assess your roof yourself it is important that you use a firmly secured and braced ladder with rubber safety feet to ensure that you are safe. Having someone to help you is also essential. You should also wear rubber-soles for much needed grip while climbing the ladder.
  • How much does landscaping / a garden makeover cost?
    The cost of landscaping or a garden makeover can vary significantly depending on various factors. These may include the size of the garden, the extent of the work required, the materials used, and the level of expertise of the professionals involved. This question is frequently posed to us, and similar to determining the cost of a house or a car, it's equally challenging to provide an answer without understanding the context. The price is contingent upon factors such as the dimensions, intricacy of the design, and the materials utilized.
  • Will a flat roof allow rain to run off it?
    A flat roof will actually generally be built with a very slight incline to allow any rain water to easily drain off of the roof into the gutter, so no water will build up on your roof. Our Fibreglass flat roofs are also a popular solution for draining rain water int the gutter.
