Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire is adding to its long list of services. To complement our high-quality materials and advanced roofing techniques, we are expanding the range of services which we offer to become a fully-rounded roofing and building company.
On top of our brand new roofing services, we have a number of highly skilled, well experienced and knowledgeable roofers in our team. Take a look at our list below to see which roofing option best fits your roofing needs.
Chimney Stacks and Stack Repair
With weather in the United Kingdom often cold and damp, we know that you want to stay warm and comfortable in your property. Most houses in the country have chimneys, which allow you to light a fire and relax over a warm cup of cocoa on the sofa with a movie.
Although chimneys are great for warming up our homes, with regular use, they can become exposed to wear and tear, which is why they need to be maintained and cared for on a regular basis. Checking and repairing the brickwork and flashings of your roof and chimney can expose you to safety and health hazards, which is why we recommend working with a trusted and professional roofing company such as Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire.
With a team of knowledgeable and highly-trained and skilled tradesmen, you can rest assured knowing that the very best of care and intervention will be given to your chimney.
What’s more, we offer free chimney surveys and, if you choose to work with us, you’ll be able to benefit from our other chimney and roofing services, including chimney removal, repair, flashing, cement and pointing, structure strengthening, stack repair and much more.
Garage Roof Replacement and Repair
Maintaining your garage roof is essential – after all, our garages are where we put some of our most prized possessions to be stored, such as our cars, bikes and Christmas decorations. To protect your garage from moist and water, you should regularly check that your garage roof is in good shape, as damage to the roof could also lead to damage to your goods.
Early detection of damage in your roof prevents it from further deteriorating, which is why we recommend an annual roofing maintenance check for your peace of mind. After all, it costs a whole lot less to repair a garage roof than it does to install a brand new roof.
Just like we do for our brickwork and chimney services, Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire also offers free surveys for garage and other flat roofs. A dedicated member of the Findley team, who will be fully trained in EPDM and GPR roofing materials, will visit your property and check all corners and creases to let you know its condition, and then recommend any changes or maintenance that we feel should be carried out.
The best part is that we offer a wide range of garage roof repair options so that you can choose the best one for your garage and your budget.
Soffits, Cladding And Fascia
Although wood was a popular roofing material back in the day, with timber, in particular, an option most builders used, wood can be hard to maintain because it needs to be repaired and replaced on a regular basis. Wood also should be checked for damage, such as damp, rotting and cracking, as this can lead to leaks, breaks and further roofing damage.
Due to the unpredictable nature of wooden roofs, alternative materials and roofing parts were made available, including soffits, cladding and fascia. At Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire, we’re proud to say that we have been working with both fascias and soffits for more than 30 years and that we are amongst the first to use a combination of UPVC fascia and cladding to provide a water-tight roofing solution for both repairs and replacements.
Now, we have extended our services to new rooflines, replacement of fascia, new guttering and guttering repairs, as well as the repairing of roofline. And, when we install brand new roofs, we’ll always recommend and install the appropriate roofline products to future-proof your roof and give you added peace of mind that your roof won’t be subjected to leaks.
Firestone EPDM Roofing
Firestone roofing, which is also known as EPDM or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, is made up of 100% high-performance synthetic rubber. This form of roofing has become quite popular, ever since its introduction back in the 1980s because of its durability and efficiency.
Although this roofing material is only available in black and white, it’s a sensible choice, as it is an environmentally-friendly product and should last at least thirty years. What’s more, the materials used in Firestone roofing are UV-ray resistant, meaning its colour will last, too.
GRP Roofing And Fiberglass Roofs
Another roofing material which has soared in popularity in recent years is fibreglass or glass reinforced plastics. This material is considered the “standard option” for commercial and residential use as it is inexpensive, lightweight, highly durable and resistant to a whole host of elements, including water, fire and impact, which makes it a perfect garage roof material.
However, the use of this roofing material is not limited to garage roofs – it can also be used for small house extensions or even a full house roof replacement.
It’s common to see conventional roofing materials such as felt and fly now being replaced by fibreglass and Firestone roofing, as these new materials are tougher, longer-lasting and will require less maintenance than their older, less efficient counterpart products.
Fiberglass best works as a material for flat roof replacement, and also works well for brand new garage roof installations. Fiberglass is one of the preferred types of roofing because of its advantages it offers and lives up to its reputation of being a long-term investment for homeowners who are looking for a practical, maintenance-free solution.
Along with any flat roof renewal, repair or replacement, it’s always a good idea to have your guttering checked by a professional roofing company, such as Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire. We have a wealth of experience in installing and maintaining seamless gutters, so if this is a service you’d be interested in, please contact us by clicking here.
Flat Roofing and Flat Roof Construction
Flat roofing is popular in areas with arid climates, where dry and hot weather are common. The flat texture and form of this type of roofing allows the roof to be used as a living space or a “living roof” – and, it’s an option that’s easy to build, install and maintain
Flat roofs are commonly found in Middle Eastern countries such as Egypt and Persia, but the same techniques can be applied right here in the United Kingdom for property extensions and garage roofs. Whether you’re looking for a new extension or a flat roof replacement, you can be sure that our professional team help you choose the perfect roofing option.
Rubber roofing is another popular option amongst builders and roofers due to its durability and lifespan – and it’s now a service that we offer at Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire. It has a low maintenance cost and is one of the most popular roofing options that we offer to our clients, and is often considered a good investment because of its wide-ranging benefits.
Pointing and Repointing
The majority of properties in the United Kingdom are built with bricks. Although they may be a strong and durable material, over time, they can wear down. In cases of extreme weather changes and frequent exposure to a wet and moist environment, bricks and their foundations can become weakened, causing cracks and damage that can become unfixable.
Brickwork is high maintenance, and you should look to check your brickwork on a regular basis for signs of damage or wear and tear. By detecting damage early, you can save a lot of money – leaving exposed brickwork unrepaired can lead to expensive repairs and rebuilds.
At Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire, we offer a free evaluation of your brickwork pointing, and we’re happy to visit your property at a time that suits you best. Checking whether your brickwork needs pointing or repointing can be a dangerous job, as cracks can form in your bricks and pieces of bricks can fall off during the evaluation process, which is why we recommend leaving the process to expert roofing contractors.
When we visit your property to assess the damages to your roof or brickwork, we don’t simply do it with the naked eye. We have all of the appropriate tools needed for the job, and our highly-trained roofers and builders will always work to the safest of standards.If you want to find out more about any of the services that we have mentioned in this article, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by clicking here.
