TOP WINTER MAINTENANCE TIP
3) Leaky Roof
Checking your roof for potential problems could save you a lot of stress in the long run. Loose, cracked or missing tiles can be hard to spot – and, if your property is rented, it won't necessarily be something your tenants will notice.
Sorting these issues now will mean a much easier winter. Leaking roofs can cause huge damage, which can take a while to show itself.
You can survey the roof yourself from the ground, to see if anything’s obviously wrong – look out for shards of tile or grit in the gutters and on the floor. However, it’s best to get a professional in to fully survey and, if necessary, fix the tiles – as it’s a labour intensive and specialist job, which can be quite dangerous if you’re not trained to do it.
