Pitched roofs are what most people imagine when thinking of a roof and are more common than flat roofs, especially when it comes to residential properties. There are different types of pitched roofs but generally they consist of at least two slopes, usually with a middle ridge at the highest point. They tend to be more durable and have a longer lifespan than their flat counterpart.
Flat roofs have long been used for outhouses, flats, garages, commercial properties and much more as they're so cheap to build and economical to maintain. They can also be useful as an extra area of your property. People use the space for all sorts of things including a roof garden or barbecue area and they can even be used for solar panel installations that aren't visible from the ground. Their typical life span is 10-20 years which can be extended with careful maintenance. Our roofers Gloucester team can maintain, repair and install flat roofs at a very reasonable rate.
We advise you to inspect your roof a few times a year, especially after strong storms, with one of those inspections being carried out by a professional. You are typically looking for any breaks, leaks, debris, branches, fungal growth or anything that could threaten the integrity of your roof. Particular attention should be paid to the joins. Remember to also check inside the property for telltale signs of water leaks, and also remember to check your guttering.
Annual inspections can be carried out by our roofing Gloucester team to address any current damages and assess the strength and integrity of your roof. If your roof isn’t inspected annually by a professional, you run the risk of having a leaky roof that could result in several thousands of pounds in repairs, especially if water damage has occurred. For all your roofing needs rely on Property Maintenance Gloucester.
If you notice anything unusual during your inspection of the roof that you're not sure about then don't hesitate to contact us or any other company offering roof repairs in Gloucester.
If it is simply a case of small light debris being on a flat roof then you can easily sweep that off yourself; provided you feel confident about and know how to keep yourself safe while working at heights.

Sorting out a potential problem when you first notice it (even if you're not sure) is much cheaper than sorting out water damage way down the line and is an essential part of roof maintenance and prolonging the life of your roof.
