Residential Roofing

The roof on your property is the single most important element. It protects the rest of your house from the elements, providing a safe and secure home for you all year round. Kingsley Roofing install roofs on new properties, replace existing roofs and will complete repairs to a damaged roof.

There are a variety of roof types the most common being pitched and flat roofs. The type of property you have will influence the roof you need but your location, local planning controls and budget also need to be considered. As roofing specialists, we can advise you on the best options.

What to consider for residential roofing

Sounds obvious but a roof is essential to ensure your house is insulated and protected from the elements. Drainage is also important which is why a correctly installed gutter system will ensure rain is caught and dispersed away from your roof.

The aesthetics of a roof can be an important consideration both in terms of blending with the local housing stock and the aesthetics of your house. Roof tiles and slate are the most common materials for a pitched roof while felt and rubber are used on flat roofs. If you’re not sure what you need, we can help you.

Repairs and maintenance

Unlike commercial properties, regular maintenance can be hard to do because of the location and accessibility to your roof. You need to be vigilant for any leaks or damp patches on the inside of your house. It could be an early indication that your roof needs attention.

If you do have concerns after a period of bad weather or you have an old established roof, you can commission a survey. This would be a visual inspection of each element of your roof to see if it needs any attention. We can undertake a survey for you and highlight areas of weakness before they become an issue.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I seem to carry out more repairs on one side of my pitched roof than the other?

This can be quite common and is usually due to weather conditions. The south-facing slope of the roof will be exposed to the sun more often than other areas of your roof. In stormy weather, the wind and rain will tend to come from the same direction. Over time this will cause wear and tear to the structure of the roof and it will require maintenance.

My roof is leaking do I need to replace it?

In many instances, no. This may be an isolated issue and needs to be looked at further. Water can travel which means the leak could be some distance from where you are seeing the dampness. As a roofing specialist, we would be able to pinpoint the issue and advise on what to do next. In most cases, this would be a repair.
