What Common Issues Befall Pitched Roofing in Bournemouth?

There are many issues which can affect pitched roofing causing no end of problems for homeowners.

These issues are ones which our team are more than happy to rectify and include:

Issue Exclamation Mark


A common issue we see in existing pitched roofs is the lack of correct ventilation, leading to condensation build – up. If the roof area cannot ‘breathe’ efficiently, this will cause mass areas of damp/wet which eventually spreads across the roof area and timber structure. At the Pitched roofing company, we can inspect existing roof areas from the inside and outside to determine whether the roof has the correct ventilation and furthermore what the options are to prevent his from happening.

Issue Exclamation Mark

Old Felt/Breather Membrane

One problem we consistently come across is the material used for or the lack of a breather membrane. Very old style felt breathers were commonly used which allow minimal ventilation and the laps shrink overtime causing gaps in the system. Once condensation starts to form, this moisture will find its way behind the breather membrane and into the roof space. Issues like this can commonly be missed until it is too late and the timber starts to become damaged.

Issue Exclamation Mark

Water Ingress

Common issues include splits in valley trays, slates or tiles which can allow water to enter underneath the roofing system. This will not always be picked up by a homeowner straight away as dependent on the build-up the water may find its way along the internal structure before making its way to visibility. Another common place for water ingress issues is on abutments/flashing commonly with lead/GRP being used on these details. If water consistently finds its way into the property, the structure and frame of the building could be damaged over time.

Issue Exclamation Mark

Damaged & Slipped Tile/Slate

This is a common yet easily rectified issue. Sometimes it could be down to the original installation, or something damaging the roof from internal/external works or a big storm. If the roof covering is damaged for a long period of time this could lead to damages to the roofing batten/breather membrane and eventually into the roof space. It is recommended to speak to a roofing expert if you notice any tiles/slates that seem out of place or cracked.

If you have a specific style that you would like or require advice and information on the ranges and suitability of the various systems, please contact our office.
The roof covering is not the only important aspect of your roof, you need to consider the lead work, insulation and U-values, dry or wet fix systems as well as options for solar. Our team has extensive knowledge in all of these areas and would be happy to arrange a phone call or home visit to run through how it all works and what the options are relevant to your property.

Pitched Roof Cleaning and Maintenance

If you have a roof area which is covered in moss/leafage or waste, this can in turn affect the roof on your home or business. It is very important over time to maintain the roof and to keep an eye on the efficiency of the system. This is easier said than done with most pitched roofs hard to access without the right knowledge and safety equipment. At The Pitched roofing company, we offer various cleaning and refurbishment services that allow you to prevent future issues and give a breath of life to your property. Common issues range from blockages and growth in the guttering, moss coverage, debris falling from old cement work and slipped tiles/slates.

Gutters, Soffits and Fascias

In addition to installing, restoring and maintaining pitched roofing in Dorset, here at The Pitched Roofing Company, we also offer the same for gutters, soffits and fascias too. Not only do these vastly improve the aesthetics of your rooftop, but they also serve a practical purpose too. Often, damaged or blocked gutters can be the contributing factor of standing water. As such, if your uPVC fixtures require an overhaul or need replacing outright; we can help.

Integrity Testing

At times, a fault is not always immediately obvious and can take a little time to track down. This is where The Pitched Roofing Company in Dorset can be of assistance. We employ the use of cutting-edge technologies to deliver truly unparalleled integrity testing. Integrity testing is an innovative technique that is non-invasive and is a great way to ensure quality control while keeping costs down.

The techniques that we employ include electronic leak detection, moisture probe analysis and moisture probe scanning. Integrity testing enables us to track down potential issues without having to overhaul the entire roof. What’s more, it significantly reduces the time it takes to determine the cause of a leak. Upon completion of any testing, you will be supplied with a comprehensive report that summarises our findings. Our industry knowledge and experience will come into play, and we’ll be able to recommend any waterproofing systems that may be required.


Common reasons for pitched roof repairs – Water ingress, damp, structural problems, material deterioration, poor workmanship, damage

Over the years our flat roofs are battered by the weather. As well as the wind and the rain there can be debris, animal traffic, fallen objects (tiles) or moss and weeds taking over.

Our first step would be to visit and assess the area in question. If we can get onto the area we will take pictures, videos and measurements. If the area is not safe, access difficult or ice conditions we can use our drones to get all of the information we require. Samples of our materials can be shown and fully explained on site.

You will then receive a free report from our visit including pictures/info along with a full breakdown of options and costs.

We are seeing more and more problems with old felt and EPDM roofs where the longevity of the product is at the end. Our systems are designed so that we can overlay directly on top of the existing system. We would make sure that there is no structural damage first before overlaying the area adhering the membrane to the surface. Insulation can also be added on top of the felt roofs before the membrane to add thermal properties. If there is structural damage we can assess where this is and re- roof the area.

Note: SPRA (single ply roofing association) does not recommend the use of ‘cold deck’ roofs (where the insulation is placed below the deck) because they require ventilation and it is difficult to control condensation.

20 year warranty for all repair projects as well as new.
