Re-roof and timber repairs to a fire damaged roof.

When the team at Pinnacle are called on to undertake various roofing jobs, sometimes it is surprising the extent of damage and repair that is needed. One recent job certainly posed a challenge for our team when the property suffered a lot of fire damage.

A neighbouring tree caused the damage in question to the property catching fire which resulted in the flames blowing under the eave. The resulting damage called not only for a lot of work in stripping and replacing the roof, but was also an extreme caution for our team working around the damaged areas.

The extreme conditions of the roof would call for a longer term of working on the property, totalling up to 10 days for one team. This is double the typical time for a job on a 3-sided semi, with the added time involved in the removal of the burnt timber.

The team errected scaffolding for access and safe working whilst the careful operation was conducted in stripping the roof.

Whilst removing all of the burnt timber and replacing it with new perling and rafters, the team was pleasantly surprised to discover that the hip rafters had received zero damage from the fire. The ceiling joists on the affected side of the property had however completely burned into charcoal. This resulted in the team dropping the ceilings to renew the joists and follow with new insulation.

With the fire damage taken care of, the re-roofing of the property became the next task. We re-roofed the semi-detached property in our preferred Marley Ludlow major tiles, adding to the fresh roof with breathable felt and treated battens as standard.

Both chimneys had all new flashings and welded gutter backs.

We finished the job by replacing the facia, soffits, and gutters of the roof line for UPVC.

Whilst a majority of jobs do not involve such excessive damage to the roof, this job proved that the team at Pinnacle Roof and Build are poised for any type of re-roofing scenario.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

Working in a high pressure law firm means we often don’t have time to turn our attention to the things that need doing to the building we work in.

Since we occupied our Cheadle offices back in 2017, we have have always had and issue with the flat roof at the back. Any time we have tried to resolve it, we have either been met with unreliable workmen, or extortionate quotes.

Once Brad joined BNI – and after hearing about all the fantastic work he had done for fellow members – we decided to call him in to quote. After attending the offices and providing a very reasonable and detailed quotation, we instructed Pinnacle Roof and Build to replace the flat roof at the office.

Brad and his team always turned up on the days and times stipulated – and if there was ever a change in the schedule, Brad would always let me know in advance.

It wasn’t the easiest of jobs, and Brad and his team were met with a lot of challenges – but despite this, the invoice at the end did not exceed the initial quote, and the works were still completed in time.

All in all, Pinnacle Roof and Build provided a first class service. They went above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to family, friends, and business associates.

We first reached out to pinnacle when our roof was leaking last winter which they temporarily repaired.
We then had them back in the spring to re-roof our entire house. Great work lads.
