More often than not, you will come to experience a roofing issue at some point in your life whether that be a new build property or an older property. In our years as reputable roofers, we have learned that the most common roofing problems include:
Roof leaks are extremely common, especially in the UK where we are faced with poor weather conditions such as strong winds and torrential rains throughout the year. When you notice a leak, it’s strongly advised that you seek professional assistance from roofing specialists such as ourselves to fix the problem before it develops into a larger issue.
Damaged shingles usually occur when there have been strong winds and especially if they have not been secured properly. Even if there is only a little part of a shingle missing, it’s better to have it replaced by a professional roofing company as it will prevent further damage.
To avoid encountering common roofing issues and having to pay for repairs, you should aim to have a roof inspection by professional roofing contractors once before the winter months and once after. This is to prepare and also to assess the state of the roof after the winter weather. Of course, a roof inspection can be done anytime throughout the year and would be encouraged after any extreme weather.
Flashing is made of metal strips and is attached to the edges and seams of the roof to offer protection. When flashing encounters damages such as bends upwards or splits this increases the risk of leaks, especially during heavy rainfall. Damage can occur from faulty installation, poor repair services and harsher winter months.
Every roof repair cost will vary depending on the level of repairs and the type of property you have. Costs on average will cost around the £200 mark for roof tile repairs and placements. Flashing repairs will typically be around £250. If you are in need of a leak repair, then on average you can expect to pay a similar price of around £200-£250.
If your roof is experiencing sagging, then a sagging roof repair can be more costly. If sagging is caused by the weight of the roof which is impacting the timber frame, then you can expect to pay anywhere between £1000-£2000 for new joists.
In the UK, the average cost for a new roof is around £5,500, but this price will vary depending on the size of the property and the type of roofing material that will be used. Flat roofs are the cheapest type of replacement averaging at £1500-£200, whereas hip roof replacements are the most expensive, costing anywhere between £6000-£10000.

There are many different signs that your roof may need replacing, however, these are the most common:
- An outdated roof that has not been replaced in over 20-30 years. Asphalt roofs’ average lifespan is between 20-30 years.
- Shingles are curling. This can happen through cupping where the shingles turn upwards, and through clawing, which is where edges stay flat but the middle starts to rise.
- Shingles are missing completely from your roof.
- Shingles become cracked. If just a few are cracked, then you can easily have a roofer replace them, however, if there is cracking that is noticeable in more than one area then this may warrant a new roof.
- Granules are found in the gutter of an asphalt roof that has been around for 10-15 years.
- The entire roof is sagging. A sagging roof is an indication of a structural problem and should be taken care of immediately by a team of roofing specialists.
If you notice a leak in your roof, there’s no need to worry too much and will not warrant a complete roof replacement. A leak is usually caused by a loose or damaged tile which can easily be replaced. If you spot your roof leaking, act fast and call our team of professional roofers in Bath.
Most roofing experts have agreed that a standard roof will last between 20-30 years. Depending on the roofing materials, replacements schedules can differ, such as:
- Asphalt shingles – 15-20 years
- Wood Shingles: 20-25 years
- Rubber Roofs: 30-50 years
- Metal Roofs: 50-75 years
As a team of roofing specialists, we strongly advise against homeowners carrying out roof repairs by themselves as those who are not experienced could risk damaging their roofs even further with the incorrect repair work. It can also be dangerous as you will be working from a height and unlike professional roofing contractors such as ourselves, you won’t have the correct PPI, not to mention any insurance cover if you should happen to have an accident.
For professional roofing contractors in Bath, call our team today on 01225 705 918.
Generally, you won’t need planning permission for a roof replacement as alterations to the roof, such as re-roofing or adding skylights are considered to be permitted development, subject to limits and conditions. To find out more just contact our knowledgeable roofing experts who are more than happy to help and advise you.

Why Is Roof Maintenance Important?
Roof maintenance is the checking of all of the vulnerable areas on a roof that could be susceptible to having an issue. Depending on the type of roof, whether that be commercial or domestic, you should have a roof maintenance check at least every two years.
Regular maintenance and checkups will keep your roof in tip-top condition for a long period of time. Everything has a lifespan including your roof, however, regular maintenance can ensure that your roof will reach its full potential. If your roof is being neglected it will need to be replaced much sooner than expected.
Having your roof regularly maintained will also give you the peace of mind you deserve. You will not need to worry about a leak in the roof that could be causing mould or rot. Having your roof checked regularly will keep it in optimal condition. If you have any small problems on inspection, you can have these fixed straight away.
The importance of roof maintenance cannot be expressed enough as it is one of the main ways to maximise your roof investment. AL King has proudly helped homeowners get the most out of their roofs for years, we are here to help you as well as educate you in any way we can. Our team is always happy to help.
AL King will be able to ensure that your roof is as good as new and will protect you and your home throughout the colder months when the weather can be harsher.
