Autumn Roof Preparation

You only need to look outside your window to see the leaves are falling and the rain is taking effect as we move towards the winter. With autumn now in full effect, it is time to safeguard your roof, guttering, and other aspects before the coldness turns everything to ice.

Many homeowners are guilty of not putting enough thought into autumn home maintenance, particularly in the Northwest and its harsh weather climate. Additionally, many smaller issues will happen during this time of year, especially around pests, leaves and leaks. When they don’t get addressed in the autumn, they become big problems in the winter months.

Clean Those Gutters

Around this month, leaves and debris will build up in your guttering, leading to a clog in the downspouts. That allows rainwater to overflow your gutters and damage your roof, trim and siding.

Additional weight from soggy leaves and rainwater will loosen your gutters from the anchor point and can lead to collapse. To stop this from happening and bringing resulting repair fees, have Pinnacle Roof and Build inspect and ensure your gutterings are uncompromised and obtrusion-free throughout the winter months. If you have a lot of trees around your property, you will require constant cleaning throughout the autumn months to ensure the build-up is cleared.


Without a good standard of airflow entering your attic, you may end up with sky-high energy bills on top of roof leaks in more extreme weather conditions.

Throughout the day, sunlight hitting your roof will warm up the air within your attic. Without adequate ventilation in soffits, ridges and gables on your roof, the hot air will condensate and lead to moisture damage and mould or rot in the roof supports. The heat can result in triggering of ice dams in higher elevations, bringing leaks once snow accumulates on the roof.

Roof Inspections

If you notice any significant roofing issues – such as moisture ingress, you may be able to identify signs of rotting wood, mould or pest infestations. They all indicate areas where outside elements can intrude on your home.

Unless you have the expertise of a roofing company to carry out a full inspection, you will be presented with serious issues in short order. Manchester roofing companies will see your roof much closer and have the correct safety equipment to handle any issues like wet patches, leaks and cracks.

There are also options for routine maintenance contracts with roofing services in Manchester to ensure your roof is prepared for seasonal weather change. Contact the team at Pinnacle Roof and Build to protect your roof from autumn and winter weather patterns.


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.

Alex and his team were professional throughout. They arrived on time, delivered the job with no hiccups and completed the job on the day they said they would.
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!

B Council – New Mills.

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
