Reasons to upgrade your roof

Replacing your roof is not an easy decision to make.  However, keeping your home secure and watertight is essential, making a good roof system a worthwhile investment. 

A new roof can help to add value to your home, making it much more attractive and presentable – a key element if you’re planning on putting your house on the market! 

It also, as we’ve mentioned briefly, helps to shield your home and the belongings you have safely stored inside from adverse weather, which can cause considerable damage if it gets through. 

Plus, there can be only so many times that you can continue fixing leaks and making small repairs before the cost of all of these repairs ends up costing the same as an entirely new roof!  It can also get to a stage where the roof is no longer in a repairable state! 

With a new roof, you can have confidence that it is designed to last.  So, you can sit back and relax, with no further roof maintenance required for quite some time. 

However, the best part for many of our customers is how much a new roof can lower your energy bills!  With new thermal insulation and no leaks or cracks to be seen, less heat escapes reducing your energy consumption and, in turn, reducing your carbon footprint! 

Bradford Roofing Services

Lead Roofing 

We’re proud to offer our lead roofing services to both domestic and commercial property customers. 

Lead roofs remain a popular choice for many due to their materials creating hard-wearing, robust, and durable roof systems. 

However, over time, like everything, lead roofs do suffer damage and general wear and tear. And when you notice your lead roof isn’t performing to the same high standard – it’s time to call Roofserve! 

Lead roofing is a traditional roofing method that is proven to be extremely reliable.  It is an excellent material and suitable for older buildings such as churches and historical renovations etc. 

Mass-produced for precision and accuracy, lead is also flexible so it can be stretched and shaped to suit.  The benefit to you is that it also has excellent sealing properties, lasting three times longer than any other roofing material counterparts! 

What’s more, it is corrosion-resistant, making it the ideal material for a range of different environments. It is also sustainable as it is fully recyclable – what more could you ask for? – well, apart from your roof not to leak in the first place! 

The lifespan of lead roofs is approximately 60 years, so it is a great investment too. 

Types of lead roofing

Milled lead – more popular now on building sites where thin lead flashing is carried out. 

Sand-cast lead – often found on older buildings and churches. 

Machine cast leads – the cheapest form of the material as it can be cast thinly so small amounts can be used across vast spaces. 

Lead flashings – help maintain watertight roofs, stopping water from running down your chimney, for example, and into the property.

Process of installing a new roof

We’ve outlined below a brief look at what you can expect when having a new roof installed (note that materials and processes will vary from job to job). 

  1. We’ll start by assessing the existing roof and noting measurements, any visible problems to be aware of, and the materials required.
  2. All materials will be ordered to your site, along with (in some instances) a skip to remove all rubbish.
  3. If scaffolding is required (this will be outlined in your estimate and discussed with you in advance of work starting), this will be erected around the property.
  4. The existing roof will then be stripped back to the roof timbers, so only the roof’s main structure is visible (any rotten or split joists can also be replaced at this stage).
  5. We’ll then cover the timbers with felt (the second line ofdefence, so if there are any cracks in tiles, etc., raindrops will run down the felt and into your gutters).  Once the felt is covering the timbers, your roof will then be watertight.
  6. New roof tiles or slates are now fitted to the tile battens, with any tiles against roof windows or valleys, cut to size.
  7. Leadwork such as soakers and gutters get fitted into place and then covered with the remaining tiles.
  8. All remaining leadwork such as flashings etc. should now be carried out, followed by the installation of hip and ridge tiles, making the roof 100% watertight and secure.

Re-roofing and building regulations 

Depending on the type of property and roof structure, will depend on whether or not building regulations will be required.  Your professional roofing contractor will, of course, be able to clarify this situation for you.  However, below, we’ve provided some guidance relating to the variety of roofs and building regulation requirements. 

Flat Roofs – in most cases, a building regulation application will not be required on standard flat roof repairs.  However, suppose you’re looking to replace your roof’s integral insulation. In these instances, you may need to upgrade to the latest thermal insulation advised to help reduce the volume of heat lost from the property. 

Pitch Roofs – if you’re looking to change roofing materials from tile to slate, for example, or vice versa, building regulations will be required.  This is because structural stability may be affected by the different weights of the varying materials as will fire safety and energy efficiency, which will all need to be reassessed.  Note: If the new roof is considerably different, modifications to your current roof structure may also be required.  A qualified engineer/surveyor will always advise you before any work gets underway. 

When complying with building regulations and planning requirements, you will also need to consider overall energy efficiency. For example, roof repairs and roof replacements should always improve the thermal insulation properties of a roof, not reduce them further.
