Roofing questions: Answers to Frequently Asked
Why is the Stormflex system better than conventional
slate roof repair?
The shortcomings and crudity of most slate patching techniques invariably
means that both the appearance of your roof and the value of your property
are downgraded every time a repair is carried out. Stormflex tackles the
problem before the problem hits you and your pocket.
How can I tell if my roof needs the Stormflex treatment?
Slipping slates invariably indicate the onset of nail fatigue. This in
turn points to a future of escalating roofing problems: persistent slate
slippage, water ingress and timber decay, all signs that the roof needs
'Stormflexing'. Let the Stormflex system deal with the problem before
complete re-slating of the roof becomes necessary.
How much does the Stormflex system cost?
This obviously varies from property to property but in the vast majority
of cases it comes out at less than a third of the cost of re-slating and
we usually save on the scaffolding costs too. Please contact us to discuss
costs for your property. If you send us relevant measurements or digital
photos according to our instructions we can give you an on-line phone
What kinds of slate roof can you deal with?
Be it Welsh slate, Chinese slate or Spanish slate, the Stormflex system
can conserve the existing character of any slate roof, matching it as
closely as possible. Inevitably, the vast majority of roofs we deal with
are laid with indigenous (mostly Welsh) slate. We can deal with most slate
roofed properties, from small cottages to large industrial and commercial
buildings like the Corn Exchange in Leeds.
What areas of the UK do you work in?
We can work in all areas,
anywhere in the UK.
