Updated: Mar 10, 2023

I think we've seen enough evidence that even the most ardent sceptic would agree, we are experiencing severe weather events increasing year on year.

If you are planning a new roofing project or renewing an existing roof ,severe weather conditions must be a factor. Even the basic roofing products used today would have a life expectancy between 20-30 years, at the pace of our changes in weather patterns is the current fixing recommendations enough to meet the challenges?

The most vulnerable areas of any roof are the perimeters , verges, valleys and ridge tiles, yet the specification for fixing hasn't changed in over a decade and some roofing contractors still employ the same method passed to them many years ago.
