Roofing Superstore Issues Urgent Warning to UK Homeowners

Press release December 4, 2012 Construction

Roof Inspections Mandatory Following Severe Rain and Floods

London, 24th October, 2012:

Following an extensive pounding by some of the heaviest rain in a century, The Roofing Superstore has issued an urgent reminder for UK households to check the integrity of their roofs. While not severe weather warnings are currently in place for the coming weeks, the team at The Roofing Superstore are warning that dangerous levels of damage may have already been done.

Strong winds and heavy rain lashed the UK over the summer months, bringing down power lines, felling trees and in some cases destroying houses. However, extensively more damage is known to have occurred out of sight and for those who throw caution to the wind, the winter could be a gruelling one to say the least.

Invisible Dangers

The Roofing Superstore has advised that just because the roof and the home as a whole seems to have survived the extreme weather unscathed, this may not in fact be the case. More often than not, the kind of minor damages that can eventually become horrifically costly and downright dangerous faults occur out of sight and can only be discovered by careful inspection.

As such, homeowners across the UK are comprehensively being urged to carry out a comprehensive examination of their own roof, or call in the experts to do the job on their behalf.

A Stitch in Time

The Roofing Store has also taken the opportunity to remind the homeowners of the UK the importance of carrying out regular roof inspections anyway, regardless of how unsettled or otherwise the weather has been. Twice-annual roof inspections enable property owners to find the smallest of damages and repair them with ease and at little to no expense, as an alternative to waiting for disaster to strike and having to consider a massive end-to-end repair.

Ubiflex and general purpose roofing sheets can be picked up with ease from specialist retailers and have the potential to rule out the quite enormous expense of a complete and total roof rebuild.

With the cold weather on the way and the chances of snow and ice growing by the day, The Roofing Superstore warns that this is not the time for complacency, at least for those looking to rule out a mid-winter catastrophe.
