Finding a leak or structural problem in your roof in the winter can be disheartening. After all, it’s the season during which you most need your roof to be sound, with generally colder temperatures and higher levels of rainfall than during the summer months. Winter is usually a busy month for homeowners, with festivities like Christmas and New Year’s Eve taking place, so it’s not an ideal time to spot an issue with your roof. If you do notice a problem, it is easier, safer and more cost-effective to call a roofing expert than trying to fix it yourself.

Typical British winter weather consists of freezing temperatures, heavy rain, ice, sleet, snow and high winds. And climbing onto your roof in any of the above weather conditions without professional safety gear is not recommended. When you hire a professional roofer, you can rest assured that they will be experienced with negotiating all sorts of weather conditions in order to stay safe while fixing your roof. They will also know if weather is too extreme to carry out the work on the agreed day, and be able to rearrange plans with you accordingly.

Saving you time

From having family and friends over at Christmas and celebrating New Year’s Eve to getting organised at work when the new year starts, December and January are enormously busy months for most people, and fixing your roof may not necessarily be how you want to be spending your precious time.
