The first question we get asked is should I have my roof surveyed if I am buying a house, and the answer is absolutely yes! You prevent a whole heap of trouble and heartache later on in life; we cannot stress the value of a detailed roof survey when purchasing a new home. This can be done either in two parts where you can get a complete home buyers survey or a separate roofing survey. Our expert team of roofers Bath can completely itemized roof survey on any property with the owner’s permission.
Although there is a small charge associated with the cost of having a roof survey completed the long term savings are priceless. On the vast majority of roofs we survey there will be some work that needs to be carried out whether in order to keep the roof in a serviceable condition. This could be something as simple as blocked gutters something more serious such as a structural issues with the roof itself. Our team of roofers Bath engineers can carry out this roof survey from as little as £150 for the averaged terraced house. This would include roof coverings, rainwater systems, internal roof structures and flat roofing surveys. Last year the average cost of roof repairs in the UK was £200 to £300, so at the time of purchasing a new home with the correct negotiation this survey and repair could actually be free!
The other major question we get asked about during our roof surveys is will a standard roof survey find all roof problems? Over the years we have seen some downright diabolical roof surveys, where an inspection has only taken place at ground level. Our roofers Bath team of surveyors will inspect your roof at the correct height as well as the interior roof cavity inspecting gaps and will your surveyor go into your roof wearing his suit?
What will my roof survey tell me? Our comprehensive roof surveys will tell you the age of roof coverings and roughly how long we expect them to last. We check ridge tiles and the condition of your mortar. Our expert roofers bath check all guttering and rainwater systems, check for leaking joints and unions and identify any blockages. A common area for repair is the valleys and gulley’s of your roof that can develop fatigue splits, and mortar can begin to wear away we always makes sure to check these areas of your roof first.
Chimney stacks are well known areas for repair and chimney flaunching and flashing can come worn over time, our roofers Bath team of engineers conducting this survey will be checking this and more and every tour. Flat roofs can be checked for soft spots and the age of the roof.
