Getting on the property ladder in the UK at the moment is quite difficult. Many have to have at least 10% deposit to put down before a mortgage advisor will even talk to them. If you are fortunate enough to get your mortgage, then you need to take the necessary steps to protect the investment that you have worked hard to get. There will be ongoing maintenance throughout the lifetime of the property and there is one area of the home or business that you need to pay particular attention to. The roof is frequently overlooked as we assume that it will take care of itself, but you couldn’t be more wrong.

It needs checked at least once a year and after every particularly strong storm and the local roofers in Barnet are more than up to the task. They will check for a number of things and here are just some of them.

  1. The soffits and fascia need to be checked as they help protect the roof. They may come loose due to adverse weather conditions or through rust due to the wet weather that we get here in the UK.
  1. The guttering is regularly clogged up with leaves and other debris and this stops the rain water from draining effectively from the roof. Your local roofer will clear all of this away for the next big rain storm.
  1. Algae and moss tend to build up on your roof tile and slates and this needs to be removed. Your local roofer can power wash all of this way and get your roof looking great again.

If it hasn’t been checked this year, give your local roofer a call now and get them out to check it. It is literally the roof over your head.
