As a professional roofing company, we help our existing clients with all emergency roof repairs. However, we strongly encourage you to watch out for warning signs of roofing problems before it gets to this point. This saves you stress and high repair costs that come with emergency pitched and flat roof repairs. Here are some signs to watch out for that can prevent roofing emergencies.


Roof Leakages

The first sign that pitched and flat roofs require the services of a roofing company like us is the presence of leaks. Some signs of roof leaks can be harder to spot than others; however, if you notice any of the following, please give us a call.

  • Water Stains on Your Ceiling

  • Water Dripping from Your Ceiling

  • Dark Spots on Your Walls


Blocked or Damaged Guttering

Regular gutter cleaning is essential for all forms of industrial, domestic and commercial roofing. If you haven’t had your guttering cleaned in a while, debris, water, ice, and snow can build up and cause overspills and all kinds of damage to your roofing system. With our experience in fascia installations and maintenance work for gutters, fascias and soffits, Britannia Building & Roofing can take care of these blockages for you before they turn nasty.

Chimney Damage

For any domestic and commercial roofing that has chimneys, it’s wise to have them inspected regularly for potential damage. In our years of experience as a roofing contractor repairing pitched and flat roofs, we find that usually the seal around your chimney can become damaged and allow water to enter the property. If left undetected, this can result in major roof damage and even new roofing installations. With urgent repair work, you can instead replace or repair the flashing to avoid serious damage.

Moss Growth

The growth of moss, mould, algae or fungi is never a good sign for the roof of your Leeds property. These organisms can cause tiles and shingles to deteriorate and rot the roofing materials that lie beneath. A roofing contractor like us can easily replace these tiles and shingles if they’re spotted quickly.

Missing or Damaged Roof Tiles and Shingles

The condition of your roof’s tiling and shingles is a common indicator to determine whether you require roofing work. Weathering and other damages can cause roof shingles to curl, crack and fall off. The odd damaged roof tile isn’t a major cause for concern, but the more damaged tiles and shingles there are, the more likely it is that you’ll need roof repairs or a new roof. Britannia Building & Roofing has a range of tiles and shingles that we can install on your roof if necessary. Again, the sooner you notice this or any of the other signs, the better.
