THOSE finishing touches when refurbishing an old home can really make a world of difference. But nothing will help the look of a house better than the correct style of roof - often the last thing owners think of when they are designing their home. The style of the roof should fit in with the windows and brickwork. If the remodelling of the main body of the house comes from one era and the roofing comes from another, there will be a distinct imbalance. The right roof can enhance a property while the wrong one can be a disaster. There are many roofing products on the market so the advice of an expert is essential. A good contractor should be affiliated to one of many federations and owners should always ask for proof of membership. Although the initial cost can be a bit higher, it will prove to be a sound long-term investment. A spokesman for Stuart Penrose Professional Roofing Contractors says: "Problems go undetected until the first spell of bad weather. "More often than not the roofing contractor has been paid in full. "Unfortunately, the home owners can learn to their cost that bad roofing can be an expensive procedure to correct." Professional roofing advice and assistance is available from experts all over Ireland. For full information contact Stuart Penrose in Carrickfergus on 028 93373010
