RLAs the nights draw in and the weather gets steadily cooler, you will probably feel the desire to retire indoors where its warm, dry and more comfortable. But don’t forget that your property may need some TLC if it is to protect you effectively against the elements! One of the most important areas of your home, and the one which takes the brunt of weather conditions is its roof. Rain, wind, snow, cold, and heat can all contribute to problems and take their toll over the years, even where there is a tough and sturdy roof. Where your roof is concerned, prevention is definitely better than cure.

This is the perfect time of year to prepare your roof by making a few checks here and there before the onslaught. Its a good idea to have a qualified roofer to inspect your roof once a year, preferably around autumn. This gives you precious time to sort out or prevent any potential issues before they develop. It is always better to carry out work to a roof when the weather is fairly dry and more temperate, as the same tasks done in wetter conditions will cost more and can be risky.

As well as getting professional help, there are one or two signs you can look for from the ground, such as loose or broken tiles, or brickwork which appears damaged. If your gutter is cracked or sagging, it may need repairing or replacing. This is crucial to ease the worry of water ingress or damp taking hold in your walls. Fascias and soffits can come loose, rot or develop holes due to water sitting in your gutter etc. Leaves, weeds and moss will loiter in a gutter and will stop any water from rain or melting snow and ice from flowing freely. You should ensure that your gutters are cleared at least once a year, usually around November once the leaves have stopped falling if you have trees nearby. Take a look inside your roof if possible, by accessing the loft, and look for damp patches, holes, drips on the floor or anywhere that looks wet.

Of course in the changeable British climate, your roof is the priority but your gutters, soffits and fascias play just as big a role in protecting your home. Old wooden or aged and defective guttering, soffits and fascias can cause issues which could turn into big complications.
