Roof Repair on a property in Malahide, North Dublin on 10 April 2023.
An area on the front of the roof needed repairing.
If there are missing, loose or damaged roof tiles, this can allow the rain water to get under the tiles and damage the roof membrane and enter the roof space. This can cause more damage and lead to dampness within the home, which is a health risk. This does not necessarily mean the whole roof has to be renewed, often a small repair is all that is required.
The roof tiles have to be removed in the area that a leak has occured. The old roof membrane and battens are removed.
A new breathable, watertight roof membrane is fitted.
New treated wooden battens installed.
The original roof tiles can be fitted, providing they are in good condition, any missing or damaged tiles can be replaced.
All rubbish is taken away.
