Slate Tile Replacement and Replacement Guttering in Taunton
The Importance of Maintaining Your Roofing Materials

Whether your roof has been constructed using traditional roofing materials, GRP fibreglass, or torch-on felt, it is essential to maintain its construction and individual components. You may not realise that your entire Taunton property relies on the roofing system's structural integrity, from the chimney's stability to the gable and supporting walls to the foundations. 

Hence, it’s vital to keep your roof in excellent condition.

Our roofing company, Southern Way Roofing, is here to help. We have a team of experienced roofing contractors on hand to complete slate tile replacement services, GRP fibreglass flat roofing installations, flat roof installations, and replacement guttering and roofline services. 


Maintaining Your Roof – How Our Roofing Company Can Help

Regular maintenance ensures that your roof remains effective in its protective role. Your roof shields your home from rain, snow, wind, and harsh sunlight, acting as the first line of defence, preventing water leaks, structural damage, and mould growth. Inspecting for cracks, loose tiles, or damaged shingles allows you to contact our roofers immediately so we can address the issues in time. 

Aesthetics and Property Value

A well-maintained roof also enhances the overall aesthetics of your Taunton home. It contributes significantly to kerb appeal so, when potential buyers or appraisers assess the property, a sturdy and visually appealing roof positively impacts its value.

Longevity and Cost Savings

Regular upkeep extends the lifespan of roofing materials. Preventative measures, such as replacement guttering and damaged tiles, delay further deterioration. Major repairs or replacements can be costly, so addressing issues early is essential.

Seasonal Considerations

Summer is ideal for roof work as the weather is favourable for installations and repairs. If you’re considering slate tile replacement, flat roof installations, fibreglass flat roofing, or new fascias and soffits, our roofing contractors are on hand to complete the job.


Roofing Materials and Their Maintenance

Clay Tiles: Over time, these handmade or manufactured tiles can become porous and more likely to be affected by frost. Regular checks help identify any issues.

Slates: Stunningly attractive, slates are known for durability. Inspecting for loose or damaged slates and nails ensures their longevity.

Stone Tiles: Regular maintenance of sandstone and limestone tiles prevents issues like dislodged stones or water seepage.

Felt: Cracks or tears are obvious signs that you should consider replacing your roof. The material usually lasts 15-20 years, so pre-emptive measures are advised.

Fibreglass: Powerful but not invincible, fibreglass roofs can also crack and leak if not installed correctly. Thorough inspections should be completed after 20-30 years.
