Blistered and Cracked felt Roof

The most important aspect for any roof survey is safe access for close up inspection. Properly supported and restrained ladders are normally used for our free survey however if a tower scaffold or mobile aerial platform is required this is a chargeable fee that is unavoidable.

Once access is safely organised up to the eaves of the roof, access over the roof slopes can normally be organised by roof ladders to facilitate access onto the roof slopes to minimise any chance of damage to tiles or slates.

Most clients would be not be prepared to pay for the cost of safety scaffolding that could be in excess of £1250 just for an inspection. However, Health and safety legislation is becoming more strict as the years go on and it may not be too long before the client will have to pay for these types of safety measures.

The roof survey covers all the areas of the roof including;

Main roof covering , chimneys, verges, hips, valleys, gutters, gullys, flashings, under felts, abutments, eaves, ridges, rain water goods, roof moss, and the attic spaces.

The roof survey will normally not comment on the structural integrity as this is the area of a Structural Engineer. However, should a roof surveyor spot an obvious structural defect such as lack of bracing or an obvious roof sag, it will be brought to the customers attention for further assessment by others.

If your roof has a structrual defect you may need a Structural Enginner to carry out Specific Structural Inspection. We can advise you as to the course of action and refer you to a qualified structural engineer if required.
If your roof contains Asbestos you may need an Asbestos report . Again, we can point you in the right direction.
We offer an annual gutter clearance and roof maintenance service to all types of properties.
