A new roof is an important step in maintaining the structural integrity and outward appearance of your home.

Home equity loans
A home equity loan is a type of loan which allows you to borrow against the value of your home or any mortgages against the property. The amount you can borrow depends on the value of your property. A loan with a low rate of interest can be an affordable way of funding expensive home improvements.
Get in touch with the local authority
The overall cost of your roofing project can vary enormously depending on a number of factors, such as your chosen material, the size of the property and the type of pitch. With this in mind, compare multiple quotes before making a final decision. Choose a roofer with a good local reputation and always obtain at least three quotes before proceeding.
Roof repairs and restoration
Our advice is never to delay a roof repair job as doing so will only increase the chances of it being a difficult or costly job. A damaged roof is never going to repair itself and exposure to the elements means that things will quickly deteriorate.
Whether your roof needs to be repaired or restored, it is vital to ensure that you select a roofer or tiler with the right skills and experience for the job. If your roof is especially dilapidated or damaged, it may need to be completely restored. it will need to be made waterproof, and broken or damaged tiles will need to be replaced. Mould and dirt will also need to be removed and re-painting may be necessary to restore it to its original glory.
