Seeing as this is the first blog of the new year, we thought we’d take the opportunity to wish you all the very best for what we hope is going to be an incredibly positive 2024.  

But being positive is often as much to do with being prepared and capable of dealing with anything that’s thrown at you. In the case of roofing work, there’s always one thing that tends to crop up around this time of year and that’s stormy weather.

Before we go anywhere near the slightly warmer, months of spring we still have a few colder, possibly windier months to get through and we’ve already seen a handful of decent strength storms in recent months. Just after Christmas, Storm Gerrit (not sure where they get these names from) created major disruption across large parts of the north and although it largely left us alone down here in Plymouth is does highlight the fact that we’re still vulnerable to storm weather and the damage it can create.

The best way of dealing with stormy weather and to properly protect your property is to make sure that your roof is currently in the best possible order that it can be and ready to handle anything that’s thrown at it. Bear in mind loose or missing slates will always compromise the strength of your roof. Every residential roof is designed in such a way that that the parts work together to create genuine strength and missing parts will always create weakness, a bit like a chain being as strong as its weakest link.

Here at Roofspec SW we’re specialists in identifying roofing issues and coming up with solutions that work well and remove problems. We operate a fully licensed and insured drone service that enables us to clearly see any roofing problems without leaving the ground and when work is required, our Roofspec SW team can be up there fixing it way before any bad weather hits again. 

We cover Plymouth and the wider South-West region including Devon and Cornwall and our team has years of experience in dealing with roofing issues. In fact, there’s very little on a roof that can surprise us here at Roofspec SW. 

If you would like to talk to us about any roofing work in Plymouth and the wider South-West region, then please get in contact with us via this website or give us a call on 01752 914217 and remember, as we say at Roofspec SW… ‘the proof is in the roof’.

All the best for 2024.
