What every roof needs this winter
Checking that your roof can handle the weather ahead is one of the best ways you can protect your home.
We’ve been told to expect one of the worst winters in years so it is important to make sure your roof is well-insulated and leak free.
It is best to act sooner rather than later, so take some time now to inspect roofs and gutters for signs of leaks.
Roofs can deteriorate quickly in damp and cold conditions.
The last thing you need is for your home to lose warmth and, when you feel the need to turn the heating up, to see a dramatic rise in your household bills.
Here at Noreus, we can conduct a health check for your roof, to make sure it is able to withstand everything that nature has to offer.
We can undertake remedial work such as re-flashing chimneys, repointing ridge tiles and replacing missing or broken tiles.
Other top tips for weather-proofing your home include:
- Ensure gaps are filled around windows and doors to prevent draughts.
- Check the insulation in your attic or roof space. Having poor insulation results in lower energy-efficiency which will have a big impact on your household heating bills.
