Roofing FAQs – Chelmsford

What are the most important things to consider when replacing or choosing a new roof?

There are 3 key things to consider when choosing a new roof: pitch, planning, and weight.

You need to determine the pitch of your roof to know which products you can use.

The new product you choose must meet planning requirements.

Depending on the material you choose, you may need structural support for your roof.

Noting the weight of your chosen roof covering can help save time and money before you make your final decision.

Can you claim roof repair on insurance?

Part of your roof can be covered by insurance, but it is rare to get full coverage.

Full coverage is only given in the event that the roof was previously in very good condition before it became damaged.

The cause of the damage must also be included in the insurance policy to give full coverage.

  1. The severity of the damage/repair job
  2. The size of your roof
  3. The complexity of your roof structure
  4. The materials you decide to use for your roof
