Flat roofs are notorious for leaking, requiring regular maintenance, and often repairs. ProRoofing offer solutions that will not only repair the problem area, but can ensure the longevity and weatherproof elements of your roof. With the implementation of our Kemper roofing system, for example, we can deliver unmatched waterproofing performance.
The Kemper system utilises KemperolTM, which is applied to a fleece layer, saturating it and forming a waterproof barrier after the resin cures. The Kemper system can be applied to any substrate, so if you feel your roof is in need of repairs too often, this system may help.
A lot of the time roofing companies will install a slate roof without sufficient underlayment and omit the high-backed gutters. This can cause thousands of pounds worth of damage later in the roof’s life and is a common reason to use our Christchurch roof repairs. We can offer effective solutions and make sure your roof is up to proper standard.
We always recommend maintaining the current type of slate, as opposed to mixed material repairing. Artificial slate should always be replaced with the same form of slate, and likewise with natural slate. If you’re installing a new roof, we always recommend natural slate roofs. They’re highly maintainable, durable, and the materials can often be recycled for use elsewhere.
Different specifications of lead are used in the various areas of roofing and roof repairs in Christchurch. Joints and guttering use a lighter form, typically code 4 or 5, while the main roofing sections use code 7 or 8. ProRoofing can help sustain the health and performance of your roof by providing professional and effective roof repairs in Christchurch.
If a lead roof has been installed without proper attention to detail, it will often develop problems caused by easily avoided mistakes. Such things as oversized sheeting, incorrect codes, inadequate fixings, and others can cause expensive damage. Minor tears and splits can be repaired with ease, but sometimes it’s necessary to renew and replace sections in the cases of more serious damage.
The older a building is, the more likely is it that the chimney isn’t optimised for weather-resistance. Things like downdrafts, leakages, smoke leaks, tar build up, and even unwanted avian residents can all be problematic. Regular maintenance is required for working chimneys to maintain maximum draw and ventilation.
ProRoofing has Christchurch roof repairs covered with our chimney repairs and improvements. We can install anti-bird guards, flue cleaning, and anti-draft chimney caps, as well as repair, maintain or replace leadwork. If your chimney’s brickwork is decayed, or otherwise insufficient, we can repair the damaged areas by repointing the stack’s brickwork or replacing as necessary.
