How do Slate Roofs become damaged or in need or repairs?

Slate roofs are well known and popular for their durability, but they can still be damaged by a number of factors, including:

The UK Weather: Over time, exposure to the elements can take a toll. Strong winds can dislodge slates, especially if the nails holding them in place are corroded or improperly sized. Hail can crack or break slates, and freeze-thaw cycles can cause moisture to penetrate and expand, leading to breakage.

Debris and Other Items: Falling branches, toys, or other objects landing on the roof can crack or break slates.

Age and wear: Even the best roofing materials eventually succumb to wear and tear. Over time, the fasteners holding the slates in place can corrode, and the slates themselves can become brittle.

Moss and lichen: While these may not seem like a major threat and a cause of roof repairs, they can trap moisture and create gaps between the slates, allowing water to seep in and cause underlying damage.

Poor installation: If the roof wasn't installed correctly in the first place by your bromley roofing contractor, it's more likely to experience problems down the line. This could include using the wrong type of fasteners or not properly flashing around roof valleys and chimneys.
