Roofing Materials

Tiles are man made materials made from hard wearing materials such as clay, ceramic materials and often they even be made out of glass! This recounted, by far the most common material used to make roofing tiles is clay. Usually, roofing tiles made this way out of clay need to be treated with a weather resistant glazing coat.

People have been using tiles to build their roofs for centuries and over, this time, roofing manufacturers have designed many different shapes and sizes of tiles. Flat tiles, for example, are almost the most simple sort of roof tile. They’re more often than not flat and rectangular in shape which makes them ideal for layering on a roof. Flat roofing tiles are very found in roofing applications and the methods used for making these types of roofs have not changed a large amount since the 1970’s!

Other kinds of tiles are Roman tiles and single lap tiles. Roman tiles have a curve at one edge and another at the other edge; this enables them to interlock for extra strength when they are laid on a roof. Single lap tiles have the form of the letters and when they are laid they give a particularly distinct pattern.

Slate Roofing Materials

Slate roofs are done with roofing tiles made of slate which is an ancient sedimentary rock made up principally from of clay and other volcanic materials, and compounded in the earth by pressure and heat.

Slate is a particularly common roofing material as it is extremely strong and also water resistant. It is very popular as it can be simply formed into the rectangles that we see on the roofs of today. During the manufacture of roofing slates, massive pieces of slate rock are broken into tiny sheets quite simply. Again this makes slate an ideal material for roofing.

Slate roofs can last a very long time because slate is a particularly hardwearing material the disadvantage of slate as a roofing material is that it is very costly to buy and replace. In some areas, roofs need to be kept maintained with specific kinds of slate to satisfy planning laws and keep the architectural personality of buildings uniform in certain areas. Finding particular types of slate in such cases can be terribly tricky, and few roofing contractors undertake this kind of work.

Felt Roofing Materials

Roofing contractors use strong, polyurethane type materials to form felt roofs. A felt roof is applied to a base board which is painted with a preservative coating to make it last longer. Once the base has been prepared the roofing felt is fixed in place using suitable galvanized nails. Felt roofing applications are sometimes for flat roofs such as those routinely seen on garages and garden sheds. The most obvious advantage of using felt as a roofing material on flat roofs is that it is very cheap and so typically used as a budget roofing solution on outbuildings.

Issues With A Leaking Roof

Water damage caused by a leaky roof can cause a whole array of problems and if not tackeled quickly can put you in a situation you definitely do not want to be in.
As soon as you discover your roof is leaking your first point should be to contact your local roofer in Twickenham or surrounding areas for a quotation. Unfortunately roofs do not last for ever and years of weather, wear and tear can sometimes lead to damage. There is of course the fact that damage can also be caused by falling objects.

First dangers of a roof leak are to the loft and the items which are kept in it. This can often go unoticed for some time by which time your items could be seriously damaged, not to mention the interior ceiling. If you don’t have a loft or attic or it is a very big leak then damage will be done to the interior ceiling. This will cause damage to paint, plaster as well as fans and lights mounted to the ceiling. The water damage can also spread to nearby walls.

If this is leaft untreated you run the risk of almost certainly getting mold and mildew growing and once this takes hold it can spread throughout the homes structure. you may experience black mould resulting from chronic water intrusion which will attack ceiling tiles, wall and floor coverings and this in itsself can ve very expensive to rectify. Mildew and mold is also a health hazard especially to the young, old and people of ill health. Lastly electrical wiring in your loft could turn into a fire hazard.

To avoid these secondary problems it is worth inspecting the roof on a a regular basis and on the first sign of your roof leaking contact your local Twickenham roof company  and make an appointment for them to come and assess the damage.If you are currently worried about a leak call us or complete the form for a quick response.
