Roughed-up Roofs: What to do in the winter months?Posted on by admin
In recent years, Britain hasn’t been known for its unpredictable weather forecasts. Our Spring tends to be a mixture of daily 1 minute downpours followed by another minute of blossoming sunshine before the heavens open once again. Summer time is an unpredictable heat-fest seemingly over before it has begun. And Autumn is lost somewhere in between September and October. This allows winter to tiptoe upon us and before we know it, the sun has set, Jack Frost is creeping in and those Christmas jumpers begin to make their appearance.
Whilst you’re snuggled up in your blanket however, spare a thought for those above. Your roof takes these conditions square in the face, not once complaining as it takes punch after punch from the unforgiving winter winds. So, think to yourself, how can I help out my roof and repay it for the decades of service it has willingly obliged to.
