Remember what it was like before the internet, having to sift through a clunky old dictionary just to find the meaning of a word? It’d take you about 5 minutes to find the dictionary, flick through page after page and then find the one-sentence explanation of the word which sometimes didn’t even help you.

But luckily, we’ve got this fantastic new technology which you can use to educate yourself, and which your children decide to use to waste hours of time on TikTok.

Today, we’ll be replacing that dusty old Oxford sitting in your parent’s storage room, and instead be explaining everything you need to know about the meaning of roof repairs.

Roof repair: what does it mean?

The term ‘roof repair’ seems pretty straightforward on the surface: fixing your roof when it has some sort of issue. But the type of repair that needs doing  depends entirely on the type of problem you’re experiencing. Therefore, the term ‘roof repair’ is an umbrella term that can include a whole bunch of different processes. These include:

  • Tile repairs or replacement
  • Re-bedding or repointing your ridge capping
  • Valley iron replacement
  • Gutter repair or replacement
  • Roof restoration
  • High pressure clean
  • Roof painting
  • Loads more!

Brief explanation of all roof repairs

Roof repairs can mean lots of different things, so let’s briefly go through some of the most common roof repair procedures:

  • Tile replacements and repair
    Here, an expert roofer will inspect your roof for broken or damaged tiles and either repair them or replace them with new ones.
  • Re-bedding and repointing
    Your ridge capping is on the top of your roof, and needs to be water-tight. To keep your ridge capping water-tight, we use a pointing membrane to fill in the gaps. Re-bedding and repointing is required when the old material starts to crack or deteriorate.
  • Valley iron replacement
    A valley iron is a metal flashing installed underneath roof tiles to allow excess water to be released into the gutter. When they become rusted over time, waterflow can directly go into the roof cavity. If valley irons have rusted, they’ll need replacing ASAP.
  • Roof restoration
    A roof restoration is a type of full-scale roof repair that can include all of the procedures mentioned above, as well as a high-pressure clean and fresh coats of paint. Roof restorations extend the life of your roof and add value to your home.
