Autumn Rain Results In Flat Roof Leaks – They Need To Be Fixed

When September comes around, there’s usually a flurry of calls to my mobile. Why? It’s because it’s traditionally a wet and windy month.

It’s certainly looking to be a damp start to Autumn after a relatively dry period over the summer. At first, you may not notice any leaks in your roof or ceiling, but I’d advise you to check your porches and any other flat roof area closely this September.

Make sure that you look at the area where the walls meet the ceiling. It’s often the case that you can see a damp patch forming there. That’s usually where the old felt has started to come away at the edges of the flat roof.

If you have a damp patch and you’re worried it may be your roof leaking. Let me know and I’ll come round to have a look at it for you.

Remember, I am a specialist flat roof repairer and installer for all of the Reading area.

Why Flat roof quotations for Reading, Tilehurst and beyond are not always guaranteed

When you want to have a new flat roof, (because it’s leaking or damaged in some way) you might think that all the quotations you receive are equal.

Well, that’s not the case. You see some people, (not me) add some “extras” on to the job after they have completed it. And they don’t tell you about it. That’s called Sharp Practice where I come from and it’s something we don’t do here at Park Lane Roofing.

I believe that when you come and take a look at a roof, an expert will know what’s wrong and will give you a binding quote for the work that is specified. Only if there is something exceptional that is found during the job, that couldn’t have been seen otherwise, will a quote change, and only then if the customer agrees to any additional work.

Being a specialist flat roofer is not just about being good technically, it’s also about how you treat your customers.

I have been in business for 25 years now and I have lots of recommendations. That’s because I am honest, fair and do all my own work. So you are not working with a big “brand”. You are working with Carl Clarke.

I don’t do huge commercial jobs, (although I did do the McDonalds in Reading because they somehow heard about me!) and I generally stick to domestic and small sized commercial properties. That means you probably won’t have to wait too long for me to get started on your job.

So if you have a flat roof that needs repairing or renewing, please give me a call and I will promise to my quote does exactly what it says on the paper.

I get asked quite a lot to mend flat roofs and put new ones on in the local area. Just to let you know, if you are in any area around Reading I am happy to come and offer my time to do a quote.

Sometimes I think people are shy to ask someone in Tilehurst to quote for a job in Caversham Heights…but please don’t be. A flat roof will take between 1 day and 5 days to install in general, depending on the weather and the size of the job, so a short 20 minute drive for me to come and see and give you an estimate is really a small part of my service!

The main thing to remember when getting a quote is that everyone will probably charge you a different amount, so you really need to know that everything will be taken care of in your quote, including VAT, taking away the rubbish etc.
