Upgrading or making over your house this summer? Ericht Roofing explains why one crucial area – your roof! – should be top of your checklist.
Craig Thoms, who has 12 years of roofing experience behind him, started the family run company back in 2016. One of his key messages when it comes to roof maintenance has always been: ‘Let us look after the most important part of your home so your home can keep looking after you.’
After all, your roof plays a critical role in keeping your home safe, watertight and liveable.
“It’s the first defence against the weather – people will happily get a new kitchen but they’ll forget about the roof,” says Craig.
Neglecting to pay enough attention to your roof can lead to costly and stressful problems.
“It can cause a lot more damage,” says Craig.
“The earlier you do it the better. With a flat roof, you won’t notice a leak until it’s too late, as it’ll sit inside like a wet sponge.”
By the time you are aware of a leak, it’ll likely have become a much bigger and more expensive problem to fix. Regular maintenance checks will help you avoid this, though – and it’s something Ericht Roofing can help with.
“If we have bad weather, you should always look at your roof afterwards,” advises Craig.
“But even getting it checked over once a year to make sure it’s in good enough condition to last is good.”
At the moment, a big focus and priority for Craig is encouraging people to upgrade old felt roofs to new modern pvc flat roofing. This modern system is much better, partly because it helps with roof breathing, making it last longer.
But there are also a variety of other services on offer by Ericht Roofing, including:
- Flat roofs
- Moss removal
- Guttering repairs or replacements
- uPVC Fascias
- Lead work
- Chimney work
- General building repairs and maintenance, and more.
Whilst Craig had to temporarily close his business during lockdown, besides from dealing with the odd emergency case, Ericht Roofing is now fully back up and running – and since most work is undertaken outside, social distancing hasn’t proved a problem.
If you think your roof needs upgraded, or if you have any other concerns about your roof, Craig will be more than happy to help.
