I’ve talked about roofers coming into the industry many times on this blog and always in a positive manner and there’s no difference here. I love to see people coming into the roofing game as this is an important business because most home owners or landlords will most likely need a roofer to fix or fit some part or all of their roof at some point and with steadily rising solar panel installations aswell then it’s going to be young lads like Will who will be delivering the job that you need so let’s all wish Will a great a long career!



And let’s not forget that we are now into winter and the weather is letting us know what time of year it is now so there are a few things to watch out for. Luckily our friends at SageRoofing.co.uk have put together a great blog post on the matter so let’s have a little look at what they have to say.

Heavy duty snow and ice build up will slowly see roof layers beginning to erode, in which gaps and holes will develop. As roofs are exposed to the natural elements 365 days a year, they require regular maintenance to ensure they stay in top notch condition.

I highly recommend that you give this great post a read. Very interesting and also has some good tips for people so I definitely suggest giving this a little attention. Of course the winter can really be hard on your roof and a little roof repair will be needed by many people as is the case each winter.
