What Services Can a Roofer in Edinburgh Offer You?
Updated: Apr 13
If you are experiencing any issues with your roof, it’s essential that you hire a reliable local roofer. Because we naturally don’t look at our roofs everyday, and thus perhaps don’t always follow measures to ensure that it’s in good working order, many homeowners will often find that this is the reason that their roofs are all of a sudden deteriorating way before they’ve reached their normal lifespan. There are many factors that can impact the longevity of a roof, and a lack of maintenance is key. If you believe that this might apply to you, the best thing you can do is get in touch with a professional roofing company.
If you are worried that a local roofer won’t be able to help with your issue, you might be surprised at the vast number of services that most roofing companies will be able to provide. In this blog, we’ll take a few at just some of the main roofing services that any quality roofer will offer.
Roofing repairs are often required if your roof has experienced damage as a result of general wear and tear or harsh weather conditions. Any damage - no matter how minor - can lead to a leak, which can cause damp to spread and invite pests in. Because of this, it’s important that you seek roof repair services as soon as you notice a problem. The team at ProBuild Contracts Ltd are able to quickly respond to callouts to fix any damage on domestic or commercial properties. Some of the main repair services we offer clients includes:
● Single slate and tile repairs
● Gutter repairs / joints
● Gutter cleaning and sealing
● Unblocking downpipes
● Small mortar, masonry and rendering repairs
● Chimney repairs
● Leaking roof repairs
● Leaking gutter repairs
● Repointing works
● Storm damage repairs
If you require urgent repairs, we can also perform emergency callouts with a swift turnaround time.
As your chimney is exposed to the elements all year round, often for decades at a time, it is naturally susceptible to wear and tear. Over time, the pointing can become worn and lead flashings can degrade, which can potentially lead to leaks in your home or even the structure becoming unsafe. If you’ve noticed any issues with your chimney, a roofer can assess its condition, carry out any necessary repairs and restore it back to its original condition.
If your roofing professional does find that your chimney is beyond repair, a full removal might be in order. If this is the case, ProBuild can build a new structure using premium materials that will compliment the appearance of your home. We are committed to keeping our prices fair, so a rebuild might not cost as much as you anticipate it to.
A classic choice of roofing material, not only does slate look appealing, but it can also withstand the harsh Scottish weather over a long period of time. However, naturally it’s not completely immune to some wear and tear. If you’ve noticed any dislodged or missing tiles on your roof, or even damp patches in your loft, the roofing experts at ProBuild can help. In the event that the damage is extensive and you need a full replacement, we can perform this service too.
Lasting up to 20 years, a flat roof is an excellent choice for sheds, garages, extensions and more. Flat roofing is lightweight, completely waterproof and can be fitted in as little as one day. If you’re interested in having a flat roof fitted at your home or commercial property, the team at ProBuild can help.
If you notice that your flat roof has suddenly started letting rain in, we can also quickly and efficiently carry out a smooth patch repair. This means that you won’t have to fork out for a full replacement, and will only pay for the required adjustments to your roofing. We can fix flat roofs for homes and businesses in Edinburgh and across Central Scotland.
Often made out of concrete or clay, tile roofs have been known to last up to 60 years. However, if your roof is starting to deteriorate, then it might be time to contact a reliable roofing company. After all, with the strong winds here in Edinburgh, it’s hardly surprising that our roofs encounter some damage from time to time. However, sometimes it can be more cost-effective in the long-run to replace the roof entirely, rather than undergoing numerous costly repairs every now and then. ProBuild Contracts can install a new tile roof that will keep your home protected for many years to come. We can also install tile roofs on extensions and new build properties.
When installed by a professional, rubber is one of the most durable roofing materials - often lasting on your shed, garage or extension for up to 50 years. At ProBuild, our contractors are well-versed in the installation, replacement and repair of rubber roofing to achieve the best results. In the event of damage, we can perform a smooth patch repair rather than carrying out a full replacement, and replacements are only required in the very worst cases.
If you run a business, a damaged roof can seriously impact your day-to-day operations. Whether you have health and safety concerns, or the state of your roofing is even turning away potential customers, it’s a good idea to have your roof checked by a professional. At ProBuild, our team will work quickly to identify and resolve the issue, keeping any disruption to your staff and customers to a minimum. Trained to handle all manner of commercial roofing matters, we are also able to install new roofs, and can work with lead, zinc and other specialist industrial roofing materials. Some of our past commercial clients have included:
● Shops and retail units
● Leisure centres
● Bars and restaurants
Roof Window Installation
If you are undertaking a renovation or conversion project, one of the main factors to consider is how the room will be used and, importantly, how you can add natural light into the space. If this is the case, roof windows or skylights are the perfect solution. At ProBuild Contracts, we specialise in the creation and installation of roof windows, including Velux windows, to help enhance your project.
Fascias & Soffits
As well as adding a nice finishing touch to your home, fascias and soffits also prevent bad weather and pests from entering your home at the point where your roof meets your brickwork. The roofing professionals at ProBuild provide a range of services to help you care for your fascia or soffit. Alongside this, if we’re repairing or replacing your roof, you can rest assured that we will install high-quality fascias and soffits to maximise your guttering’s ability to drain away rainwater.
As they are frequently exposed to UV rays, strong winds and rain, your fascias and soffits might need to be repaired in order to keep them performing well. If you’ve spotted any noticeable damage, we can also take a look at the problem and advise you on whether a repair or replacement would be the most cost-effective option.
Guttering & Downpipes
By directing your rainwater off your roof and away from the brickwork, your gutters play a crucial role in keeping your home from experiencing any dampness. This is why, if you’ve noticed any leaking or loose components on your gutterwork, you should contact a professional as soon as possible. At ProBuild Contracts, we can clean, repair and replace all kinds of guttering systems safely, efficiently and quickly - all at an affordable price. We can also clean out your gutters if they become clogged up with dead leaves, litter and other debris which can prevent rainwater from running freely.
