The importance of making sure your roof is in good condition all year round

Roof in need of repairsNo matter what your roof may be made from, and no matter the size nor shape of your home or business, you’re going to need to be prepared to keep a close eye on things.  Roofs traditionally made from felt or rubber – as well as tile – are most at risk of poor maintenance impacting upon their effectiveness all year round, meaning that a vigilant eye really is going to save you money in the long term.  GRP fibreglass is, of course, our favourite material for roofing – and we really do think that if low maintenance is high on your list of priorities, you’re going to need to go with a long-lasting material that really weathers the seasons.

Is it worth the time and effort

If you’re currently using felt, rubber or tile roofing, you’re going to need to check its constitution on a regular basis.  It’s worth doing this ahead of the colder or wetter months, meaning that around late August or early September it’s highly recommended that you check your roof for any signs of wear, tear or obvious damage.  Leaving even the slightest of scrapes or holes can really open you up to serious damage or security problems later on in the year, meaning that getting a ladder up to do a quick spot check or two will be well worth the effort.  Alternatively, you may even arrange for a professional contractor to inspect your roof once or twice a year.  This is especially recommended if you have a roof made from cheaper material that is more susceptible to both nature and potential vandalism.

What if it isn’t possible to check the roof

If you want to take out regular maintenance entirely, we really don’t blame you!  The best thing you can do if this sounds like your situation is to consider a new material for your roof.  GRP fibreglass from Merlin comes fitted with a twenty-year guarantee.  This means that we are certain you’ll require no repairs or replacements over the next two decades – it really is that durable.  Fibreglass is designed to be weatherproof, hard to penetrate and is also extremely flexible and strong.  It’s the perfect roofing material for homes and businesses alike, and is therefore recommended by roofing professionals up and down the country.  In our experience as fibreglass specialists, we have seen the way in which GRP has revolutionised home roofing and we’re keen to share the benefits with as many households as possible.
