Lot of ridge tiles loose and dislodged tiles and slates. It’s not just the wind but the lack of cement in the sand too! its common place around here, Grove especially. They might look ok but when up there you’d be surprised how easily the ridges lift off with your finger. If people could see the actual damage that is going on the roof would be like your car in need of servicing every so often, out of sight out of mind at times.
Also looking at lots of flat roofs, with more rain coming and possibly cold weather people should really have theirs looked at and we have some great alternatives to felt with long life expectancy. Lots of gutters still blocked and causing problems with moss and lichen being blown or washed off the roof the deluge soon causes gutter problems..

The client was concerned about having too much lead on show for reasons of theft so I advised them to use a Sealoflex system to put on the top flat roof. This type of roof covering is a reinforced polyester system, very tough and flexible. To extend the life of the flat roof an application of a maintenance coat can be applied.
