Weather & Wind Damage Pontefract

Roof Maintenance to Reduce The Risk of Wind Damage
Loose or slipped tiles should be re-fitted; ridge tiles should be bedded in fresh mortar if they begin to loosen,while flashings and other perimeter weather proofing elements should be inspected and maintained
Strong Winds
Tiles,Slates and Roofing felt can be damaged by strong winds that move and lift the roofing material; in heavy winds, wind borne debris can also cause impact damage
Gusting Winds
In the UK, gusting winds can easily reach 50 mph or more; creating a slight vacuum on the outside of the roof; especially a pitched roof:
Lifting Tiles
The partial vacuum lifts tiles and slates away from the roof; loosening nailed tiles and causing stress cracking
Penetrating Rain
Eventually, over several seasons, roof integrity is lost and rain is able to penetrate the building structure

Pontefract Drainpipes and Gutters

PVC Guttering and Drainpipe Failure
Eventually; frost,snow, ultra violet light and temperature variations caused by sunlight heating up the pipes and gutters will cause the seals to fail and the plastic will become brittle
Replacement Gutters and Drainpipes
Old corroded cast-iron systems and failed PVC systems can be replaced with a low-profile modern guttering system or a traditional system usually in black or white although other colour are available
Gutters Pontefract
Gutters form a collection trough for rainwater that runs around the perimeter of the roof where water is likely to be shed from the roof surface
Drainpipes Pontefract
Drainpipes carry the water from roof level down to the ground and feed into a soakaway, drain or rainwater collection system

Stripping and Re-Using your Existing Roof Pontefract

Roof Stripping Pontefract
If your roof has sufferred from many years of neglect or general wear and tear then it's possible to save on the cost of a new roof by removing and re-fitting your existing tiles: Only badly weathered or damaged tiles need replacing and these may be available from a local building salvage yard
Flashing, Fixing & Felting Pontefract
Roof flashing and other essential fixings can be replaced to create an essentially new roof while maintaining the character of a traditional roof; roofing felt can also be used below the tiles when re-tiling the roof to create a second weather shield
Ridge Tiles Pontefract
Old ridge tiles can be re-seated once the roof has been refurbished or a new set purchased to complete the look
Tile Or Slate Condition
Even a badly failing roof often has many of the tiles in reasonably good condition and likely to last 20,30 or 40 years; especially Welsh slate that can remain serviceable for 100 years or more
