The Point Where Your Roof or Chimney Needs Repair

Your roof and chimney are two of the most important structures in your home, which necessitates you keep them in a state of good repair. Roof and chimney maintenance is extremely important.

Over time, you will start to get the feeling that your roof or chimney needs maintenance, but by that time certain damage may already have been done.

To help, there are some warning signs to look out for that indicate it is time to call upon a roofing company to fix the problem.


If your roof has not had any major work done, or any parts of maintenance, within the last two decades, it may be showing signs of wear and age. This may be the point where you need a full replacement, especially if you are planning to install renewable energy sources such as solar panels.

Whilst replacing a roof is a large-scale job, they are worth it moving forward as it will be a long time before any maintenance or check-ups on your roof will be required. The evidence may be showcasing in various shingles or tiles that are missing or excess moss that has grown between your tiles. These are serious problems in leaving your roof vulnerable to water damage and need to be fixed with haste.

Unseen Threat

Problems can also arise from your flashing being cracked or broken. Flashings are thin strips of metal used to seal the gaps around your chimney and other openings. When these show cracks, it is a good bet that water has gotten through into your home and begun to inflict all sorts of problems.

This can mostly consist of leaks coming through to the interior of your home which can affect your floors and walls and cause untold damage throughout the insulation of your property.

Mould and mildew can form across your roof and cause many different problems, so you need to keep these completely clear of your roof because once they do the damage, it can be expensive to repair the magnitude of deep damage they bring. Your guttering may also be filled with leaves and debris which can contribute greatly to roof leaks, as well as your chimney funnel becoming clogged due to bird nests, which could result in a fire if you use a traditional fireplace.

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.
