As we move ever on into the new year, it’s the perfect time to look back at 2018. Over the last 12 months, we’ve provided roofing tips, advice and important information covering all kinds of topics, to help readers with the most important part of their property.

Just because it’s a new year, it doesn’t mean this information is any less valuable. In this post, we take a look at some of the best DPR blog posts from 2018…

Roof replacements

Getting your roof replaced is a big step for any property owner. We shared a range of tips on what to expect, whether you should change the pitch and whether winter is the right time to make the change.

With winter fresh in people’s minds, we also compared seasonal and annual inspections and provided a guide to what actually happens during a roof survey.

Flat roofing

Whether it’s a garage covering or a wholly flat commercial roof, a lot of people have flat roofing in some capacity on their property. We highlighted a few signs that your flat roof needs work and how to check if your flat roof is up to scratch. Our post on hot melt roofing also discussed one of the potential solutions for any flat roof issues.

Spring and summer

Moving into spring, as the leaves started returning to our trees, we considered what risks trees pose to your roof. Our blog post on summer roofing problems looked at heat, solar damage and the importance of ventilation.

Then onto something that’s essential all year round – guttering. Our guttering FAQs post provided answers to 14 common queries. On the same note of common customer problems, we also provided assistance for people struggling with neighbours stalling over shared roof repairs and cleared up the issue of freehold and leasehold roof repairs.

Who to choose?

Of course, one of the biggest issues for people with roofing problems is finding a roofing company they can trust. Our posts on Trustmark accreditation and the advantages of a local roofing company aimed to tackle that issue.

Moving into 2019, we hope to provide more assistance, advice and essential information on a range of roofing topics. If you have something you would like us to cover, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
