Roof Replacement - Case Study - March 2019

Full Roof Replacement – Case Study 001

Mr and Mrs McNaught’s roof has been deteriorating for a long time. The Taylor Roof’s team replaced the roof’s ridge tiles for a dry ridge years ago to prolong the life of the roof. This solution is a great alternative to a full roof replacement as it requires less maintenance work saving the client a lot cost throughout the years.

As the roof was ageing and unmaintained, we explained in detail to Mr and Mrs McNaught that a full roof replacement will be required further down the line.

The big problem

Fast forward 6 years, Mr and Mrs McNaught started experiencing roof leakage. This is very normal considering the severe weather conditions we’ve see in Scotland consistently.

“We first met Jamie a few years ago when we needed some roof ridge tiles replaced and so when we had a bigger problem we called Taylor Roofs first.” Said Mr Mcnaught.

After the McNaught’s called, the team were able to visit to the property within short notice to inspect the issues. The team found that the roof tiles had become porous and were letting in a percentage of water through them. We guarantee a 24-48 response time, but we are renowned for visiting site very quickly and it has been commented that usually we have been to site, quoted the project and started the works before other roofing companies have even visited.

The loft insulation was replaced and double-glazing windows were added, causing inadequate ventilation in the loft space. The downside to a well-insulated home is that it has a direct effect on the roof because of the excess moisture created.
