Roof Insurance Bristol

Can you claim roof repair on insurance?

Although part of the cost of roof repairs are often covered by insurance, it is very uncommon that full coverage is given. Full coverage can be given in the event that the roof was previously in very good condition before it became damaged and if the cause of damage is included in the coverage.

What options are available if I need to reroof?

There are two options available: You can either opt for a complete replacement of your roof system, by completely removing your roofing system, or alternatively you can simply cover the existing roof with a new roofing system. Generally, you will need to check with a professional as you are usually only allowed one re-cover  before you need a complete replacement.

 

How long can I expect my roof to last?

Most roofing systems should last you around 20 years. However, many roofing materials, including slate, clay tile and various metals can last a lot longer. Choosing the highest quality materials from a professional roofing contractor is a surefire way to ensure that your roof lasts you as long as possible.

In order to be confident that your new roof is built to last, it is often a good idea to see whether your roofing contractor offers some kind of warranty so that you are protected in the event of any future damage done to your roof.

If my roof is damaged, can I carry out the repair work myself?

Unfortunately, most roof repair work should not be carried out by yourself. There is a reason that professional roofing contractors are trained to quickly and safely repair or replace roofing systems. Improper techniques can result in injuries as well as more damage to your roof. 

If, for some reason, you need to assess your roof yourself. It is important that you use a firmly secured and braced ladder with rubber safety feet to ensure that you are safe. Having someone to help you is also essential. You should also wear rubber-soles for much needed grip while climbing the ladder.

A flat roof will actually generally be built with a very slight incline to allow any rain water to easily drain off of the roof into the gutter, so no water will build up on your roof.
