If you have noticed defective spots on the roof of your home, such as damaged tiles or even slates that have completely broken away, you need to ask yourself if it’s time for a new roof.

Here at Able Roofing, we have installed numerous new roofs in London when the old one just wasn’t up to the job any longer. With the summer months making way for colder and wetter seasons, now is the time to ensure that your home’s roof is fit for purpose. Once a roof is damaged, it is a slippery slope until either a repair or complete replacement must take place.

The Average Roof Lifespan

The life expectancy of a roof can vary depending on its style and material. While roofs covered with standard slates or tiles can last anywhere between 20 and 30 years, natural slates can last for up to 75 years!

As well as the climate, maintenance also plays a key role in the lifespan of a roof. With the correct care, a tiled roof can last for a century, although it should be expected that individual tiles will have to be replaced. Repairs are all part and parcel of caring for your home’s roof – if you are hot on tending to any issues with your roofing, you can ensure your roof benefits from a longer lifespan.

When Your London Home Needs a New Roof

Of course, there does come a point in time – even with faultless maintenance – when a new roof is a necessity. While issues such as missing tiles and surface deficiencies can be easily fixed without needing to rip everything up, more serious defects that could affect the structure will need attention.

At Able Roofing, we are proud to offer professional and reliable workmanship when erecting a new roof in London, meaning that you will be guaranteed a job well done. With notable customers including the likes of the Savoy Theatre, Lyceum Theatre and Nickelodeon Television, we are proud that hundreds and thousands of people benefit from our work every day in the capital.
