Ridge Tile Replacement Surrey
A roof is quite a rigid environment. It is bared to the sun, wind, rain, frost, snow, birds, moss and algae to mention a few things a roof has to deal with. So while a whole roof can last a lifetime or more, individual tiles can suffer cracking or breaking.
Missing or broken ridge tiles appear from weathering which has created the ridge tile to fracture or the mortar supporting the ridge tile to crumble. Rebedding or replacing ridge tiles is a simple job which can be achieved in a day. Some of this time will be used constructing and dismantling a secure access platform.
These sorts of issues can only be correctly diagnosed by examining the roof to authenticate the problem. Strong winds or extreme weather situations can create slippages, and the decision has to be made as to either this is a one-off event or whether the same frustrations are going to be recurred year after year. Where substandard materials have been used then, it is probably only a matter of time before more problems are encountered.
