Bromley Roof Repairs and Common Types of Roofing Damage

What are the top 3 most common forms of roof damage?


Leaks and Water Damage: This is a major concern as it can lead to further damage to the roof structure and even the interior of your home. Leaks can be caused by damaged shingles, flashing (the thin metal used around roof joints), or clogged gutters. Our roofing team visit many properties in the Bromley area, as well as providing roof repairs in Orpington and roof repairs in Petts Wood, where there are leaks and water damage.


Damaged Shingles: These are the protective layers on your roof that are most exposed to the elements. Over time, shingles can crack, curl, or even blow off completely due to weather, age, or improper installation. This can leave your roof vulnerable to the aforementioned leaks. Knowing that your roof has damaged shingles can be difficult and we don't recommend getting up onto your roof to check unless you are properly trained. You can book a visit from the Julian Roofing Services Ltd team to come and inspect your roof for damaged shingles, and any other damage, and we can provide you with images and a plan to get everything fixed professionally and efficiently.


Weathering: Sun, wind, rain, and snow can all take a toll on your roof over time. This can lead to shingles becoming brittle, cracked, or even losing their granules, which are protective mineral bits on the surface. While weathering itself might not cause immediate problems, it weakens the roof and makes it more susceptible to other forms of damage.


Another reason your roof may be damaged could be from broken guttering.


What problems can broken guttering cause to a roof?


Broken guttering, particularly clogged gutters, can lead to several problems for your roof, including:


Water pooling and leaks: When gutters are broken or clogged, rainwater doesn't flow away properly. Instead, it can pool on your roof, seeping under shingles and into the roof deck. This can lead to leaks inside your home, causing damage to ceilings, walls, and insulation. The Julian Roofing Services Ltd team can inspect this for you during a visit to your Bromley home, or any town nearby such as Chislehurst, Petts Wood, Orpington or Swanley.


Rotting fascia boards and soffits: The fascia board is the horizontal board where the gutter attaches to the roof. The soffit is the underside of the roof overhang. When water overflows clogged gutters, it can seep behind the fascia board and into the soffit, which are often made of wood. This can lead to rot and deterioration, requiring repairs or replacements.


Damage to roof shingles: Water pooling on the roof can loosen and damage shingles over time. This can cause shingles to crack, curl, or even blow off entirely, exposing the underlayment and roof structure to further water damage.
