Protecting Your Roof From Heavy Rainfall

The January/February period is set to experience some of the most severe rain conditions throughout the UK, set to cause considerable damage to homes that are experiencing weaknesses in their roofing.

Roofing is the most prominent property damage during seasons of extreme rain, especially when you combine it with heavy winds that start to usher in in February. Since the weather is beyond our realm of control, we need to take some precautionary steps to ensure our homes are protected against further damage.

Measures of Minimizing Roof Damage

There are some quick and easy precautions that you should make to protect your homes during this time of year.

The first step is to immediately replace any damaged or missing or broken tiles as the gaps caused will be an easy entry point for wind and rain to enter the property and cause further damage. Any roof defects spotted should be seen to instantly to prevent causing further and more severe damage.

Clear your Gutters

The gutters in your house need to be free-flowing and the downspouts flow away from the foundation. Water damage from flooding is one of the fastest ways to devalue your property, so the gutters need to be in full working order to prevent any logging.

This is an essential preventive measure that every homeowner has to keep on top of to stop severe damage from starting to affect their home. At Pinnacle, our team has witnessed many roofs fall victim to negligence in this area and resulting in extensive work being taken to fix the damage caused. Simply clearing the gutters saves a lot of money.

Double Check

One of the biggest issues is assuming that everything is fine and not bothering to check on aspects of your home. Regular inspections of the property for cracks, loose tiles and other issues are essential in protecting your home from rain damage.

It is important not to underestimate how much a heavy storm can ruin large sections of your home by not taking significant steps. Consulting with pinnacele roof and build to check over your roof condition and ensure everything is protected is as simple as a call away.

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.

Overall impressed with the work and the workmanship.

J Morris – Woodley.

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.

P Bolton – Woodley.

Very high standard of work, gave great advice and provided a second to none service!
Will be using again!

We decided to use pinnacle roof and build because I thought Brad was very easy to deal with and very knowledgeable about the work we needed doing.
Great company, great set of lads
