Reroofing in Barnsley and Sheffield | When is the Right Time?

Reroofing is the process of covering or replacing an existing roof structure with new materials. It can be difficult to tell whether your property needs simple repairs or a larger scale project that involves stripping out materials and installing new ones. Most homeowners don’t or can’t check the structure often and the signs of damage are hard to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Below we have compiled a list of the most common warning signs that your roof needs replacing. You can also check out our roof repairs blog or flat roofs blog for more inspiration and advice.

  • Water Damage

  • Mould and Moss

  • A Sagging Roof

Water Damage

It is easy to mistake signs of water damage for something else. If you’ve found damp patches in your rooms, water pooling in the attic or watermarks on the walls you may have thought it this was due to a damp problem, rainwater coming in the windows or a spillage that never got cleaned up. While this may be the case, it is best to air on the side of caution and have a roofing contractor in the local Sheffield and Barnsley areas check whether your property needs reroofing.

We often find that even minor water stains are caused by water seeping in through gaps and cracks in the roof.

Should we discover this damage covers large areas, our next step could be to cover the entire surface with a fresh layer of materials.

Mould and Moss

Another issue to look out for is mould and moss growth. If mould is growing on your ceilings and walls it’s probably a sign that there is a large amount of moss growth on a roof. The moss poses a risk to your roofing system as it absorbs water, holding it on the surface and eventually damaging or dislodging the tiles. When this happens a gap is formed and water is able to run into the property, covering areas of your interior with mould, damp and leaks.

So if you notice lots of problematic areas covered in mould, it may be time for a reroofing project to protect your family and property from outside elements and falling masonry.

A Sagging Roof

One of the most obvious warning signs that your roof is on the verge of collapse is when it begins to sag in the middle. Roof sagging is caused by regular exposure to moisture and high volumes of water, worn or faulty roofing materials, and poor installations that were carried out by the last roofing company or homeowner.
