Your house is likely the biggest investment you will ever make. In order to keep it warm, dry, safe and secure, you must invest in ongoing roof repairs and maintenance. The roof over your home protects your family and all the belongings inside. It also keeps structural elements free from mould, rot, damp and water damage. Likewise, if you own a rental property, or manage one on behalf of a landlord, a watertight roof protects your tenants, their possessions as well as your own long-term investment.
Operating out of Woking, our roofers share more than 80 years of pitched and flat roofing experience. From Cobham to Weybridge, and from Esher to Guildford, property owners across Surrey trust us to keep their roofs in optimal condition.
Northwood Roofing Contractors provides the following roofing services:
You can find dedicated pages for roof repairs, GRP flat roofing, high-performance torch-on felt roofing and roof tile replacement on the menu of this website. As such, we have not focused on these services below.
New Roof Installations
Is your roof in Woking especially old? Or has your home in Weybridge undergone a significant amount of previous roof repairs? In such cases, it’s often more cost-effective to invest in a new roof installation. While the initial outlay and disruption are relatively large, your investment will require little to no maintenance or repairs for many years to come.
For localised damage on roofs in otherwise good condition, our roofers can perform a partial re-roofing. This service comes with less disruption and lower costs when compared with full re-roofing. Of course, we source materials that match those used in the original installation.
All roofs have vulnerable areas with a greater susceptibility to water ingress. You can find these in the joins of pitched and flat roofing. For example, where a chimney or dormer rises vertically out of the roof.
Also known as flashing, leadwork provides a watertight seal around these joins. We strongly recommend speaking with one of our roofers if you think your leadwork has loosened. This could leave your interior roofing structure exposed to the elements – and large-scale roof repairs.
If your Woking, Weybridge or Surrey-area property has a chimney, repointing is key to maintaining its structural integrity. Generally speaking, mortar joints last for approximately 25 years. Over time, they endure temperature fluctuations and all manner of weather conditions.
As the mortar dries out and crumbles, your chimney becomes more susceptible to collapse. Bricks, however, usually last for over 100 years. When left with our roofers, repointing with fresh mortar makes the most of your original brickwork without any compromise in safety.
Fascias, Soffits and Guttering
Your property’s roof has a fascia, soffit and guttering system, known collectively as the roofline. This system performs the important role of channelling rainwater and melted ice away from pitched and flat roofing, reducing the risk of water ingress.
Cracked fascias and soffits leave the interior timberwork exposed to rot, mould and damp. Likewise, a leaking or blocked gutter may spill water down exterior walls.
If left untreated, roofline damage can cause serious issues, both structurally and aesthetically.
Velux Roof Windows
Our roofers don’t only specialise in roof repairs and maintenance. We also install Velux roof windows for property owners in Woking, Weybridge and across Surrey. If you’re planning to utilise your loft or attic space as a new bedroom, bathroom, hobby room or home office, Velux roof windows create a room filled with natural light.
We integrate these windows into the existing roof slope, so they involve minimal construction work and disruption, especially when compared with other loft conversion styles.
