Roof Repair Bath Somerset
Regardless of the quality of the materials used on your roof or how well the roof itself was installed, all roofs are prone to damage. Here at M A H Roofing, we take all the necessary steps to ensure that your roof doesn’t get damaged as often. We will first assess the damage and prepare for a repair job, if any sign of damage is found. If the damage is quite large, then we will offer a temporary solution until we prepare ourselves for a full repair job on your roof.
How much does a repair job cost?
The cost of a roof repair job varies massively because not all repair jobs are the same. There are a few things to consider when estimating what a repair job is going to cost. For instance, the extent of damage, which is usually the biggest factor.
Replacing a missing roof tile can cost around £200, and it usually takes only a few hours to complete. If the roof felt beneath the tiles need repairing as well, then it will be factored into the overall cost of the repair job.
A sagging roof will invariably be a lot more expensive than replacing a few missing tiles. This is because joists or rafters will be needed to be fitted into your roof’s internal structure to make it sturdy. This usually costs around £1,000 and £2,000. We also repair flashing. Repairing damaged flashing can be quite costly as well, with prices ranging from £100 to £300 per metre of flashing.
Flat Roofing Service
M A H Roofing also provides flat roofing as a service for our customers here in Bath. Much like pitched roofing, flat roofing is really just another type of roof structure. It’s used on both residential and commercial buildings, as well as other types of buildings.
What are the benefits of flat roofs?
The cost of installing, repairing, and maintaining a flat roof is by a country mile its biggest advantage. The materials are relatively cheaper than pitched roof materials, as well as the insulation board. Labour is cheaper because it takes less time to install, and there is less risk involved in doing so, which brings down the cost further.
Another advantage to flat roofs is that the space can be repurposed. For example, you may decide to install solar panels, which are a great way to cut down on energy costs. Some people opt for having a lounge area to wind down. Others use it to plant a garden. These are just a few of the benefits to having a flat roof. Let your imagination run wild!
Flat roofs are also far more accessible for contractors when a repair job is required. It is less dangerous and can be inspected a lot quicker. Of course, care should always be taken when climbing a roof, regardless of the type. M A H Roofing, as previously mentioned, are roofing contractors based in Bath, Somerset.

How to check for problems on your roof
One of the most common ways is bad weather. Yes, bad weather itself can be predicted, but the damage it can cause is unavoidable. After a bad storm has passed, you should get an inspection on your roof. Nip any potential further damage in the bud. Your roof is designed and made to last and withstand bad weather. However, some storms are really destructive and can leave your roof in ruins. So, have it checked out whether you suspect damage or not. If you’re able to go up on the roof and give it a look yourself, then by all means, do so.
The first thing you should look out for is any loose or missing tiles. This is generally caused by heaving winds. If you don’t notice loose or missing tiles, then you should look for mould. Mould is the result of settled rain water. Rooms like the bathroom and the kitchen are usually where mould appears. Look for it on the ceiling of these rooms. Also check the attic if you have one for any leaks. Sagging, water rings, and dark patches are all signs of a leak. Check every room until you are confident and sure that there isn’t any damage or leakage.
Call An Expert For Your Roofing Needs
If you are still doubtful, you can call a roofing specialist to come in take a look at your roof. There are many situations where you can easily overlook something that an expert roofer wouldn’t. Your eye simply isn’t trained enough to compete with a professional roofer. Call us for a professional roof repair in Bath.
Loose flashing is another another sign that your roof needs repair. Flashing is a vital part of your roof. If something goes wrong with it, then you should be concerned. Flashing essentially stops rain water from seeping into the inside of your roof by channelling the water down into the gutters. So, if you notice any of these issues, give us a call immediately. Your roof is on the line!
