The answer depends on several factors, such as what is causing the leak, and the overall age and condition of your the UK roof. If the leak is caused by a few minor issues with the shingles or flashing, this can be repaired easily in a few hours. However, if the roof is old and subject to widespread problems, it may need to be replaced, which could take a few days. Our the UK emergency roofers are on hand to help you repair your leaking roof. To have our team come out and inspect your roof, call us on 0800 470 1029 now.
Every the UK roof is different, as well as what the roofers will find when they get up there. It can take anywhere from a few hours to repair a simple damaged roof or leaking roof to a few days depending on the size and the scope of the job.
Just because your roof has a leak does not mean it needs a complete re-fit. A leak usually stems from a loose, broken or cracked roof tile. However, a complete roof system failure or a generally unsafe roof will need a complete re-fit.
Only in very exceptional circumstances, such as when a roof is very structurally unsafe. Otherwise, you can stay at home.
Leaks are often the first sign that something is wrong. Make sure you inspect your roof and gutters twice a year. Look for cracked, warped or missing shingles or tiles or excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters – these can all be visible signs that your roof has a problem. Indoors you should look out for bubbled or peeling wallpaper, cracked paint, discoloured plasterboard or anything out of the norm. Remember, the longer you leave a problem the more expensive the solution can become.
We’d recommend replacing any areas of the roof that are particularly bad. Otherwise, we would treat it using safe products.
