While some roofing companies covering the Warlingham area are often vague and elusive when it comes to explaining the ins and outs of what they do, and the likely cost of whatever service you require, at SG Refurbishments we take the opposite approach; here our roofing contractors pride themselves on offering a transparent, informative service alongside free and no obligation quotes.
To further our commitment to providing an honest and reliable service, we’ve looked to answer a number of questions that our roofers are often asked by clients in and around Warlingham. Should you have a question not answered on this page, or you require the assistance of our friendly team of qualified roofers, don’t hesitate to contact us on 01883 337 700.
DOES A LEAK MEAN I NEED MY ROOF REPLACING?
Most of the time, no. While a serious leak could mean that untrained roofing contractors have carried out a faulty installation, or that the roof is so old and badly damaged that it does need replacing, repairs are nearly always a possible option on the table. Our roofers can patch tears, replace tiles, reinstall flashing and carry out similar procedures to restore a Warlingham roof to a previous, fit-for-purpose state.
I’VE RECEIVED GREATLY DIFFERING ESTIMATES, HOW I SORT THE WHEAT FROM THE CHAFF?
Some roofing companies are more affordable than others; at SG Refurbishments we place a big emphasis on ensuring that our roofing contractors are affordable for all, so that high quality workmanship isn’t out of reach for Warlingham residents. But if you receive a radically low quote, be on guard – there are still untrained roofers out there making a living on quick, botched installation and repair jobs that will cost you a lot to put right. This is a complete false economy.
HOW DO I CHOOSE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT TYPES/MATERIALS OF ROOFING ON OFFER?
The choice between EPDM rubber, felt and GRP fibreglass can seem like a daunting one. While each fulfils its essential purpose – keeping your property warm and dry – they go about the task in different ways. Generally speaking, roofing companies recommend felt to Warlingham clients on a strict budget, while EPDM rubber and GRP are slightly more expensive but both have longer potential lifespans and a cleaner and more appealing, to most, aesthetic. For tailored advice in this area, call our roofers at your earliest convenience, or view our flat roofing page which has more information on each option.
