An Expert Guide to Roofing for Landlords

As a landlord, there’s no way to guarantee that tenants will look after your property as expected. Roofing is one of the things you can take care of that protects your investment while you’re not there.

In this post, we’ll go through some of the most important things landlords should know about roofing to keep your property protected from the elements.

A landlord’s roofing responsibility

The first thing most landlords want to know is whether they’re responsible for the roof of their property. The short answer is ‘yes’. Landlords are responsible for keeping the basic structure of a house in good repair, including the roof - along with walls, drains, pipework, windows and doors.

Responsibility aside, it’s in your interest to keep the roof in a good condition as it acts as an umbrella to the rest of the property. Your main concern should be getting tenants to report roofing problems as soon as they spot any signs of water ingress.

How often is maintenance required?

The amount of work needed on a roof depends on its age, condition and the type of roof in question. Older flat roofs might need regular repairs to keep them leak-free, while a recently installed slate roof shouldn’t need any work for several years.

Whatever the case, an annual roof inspection is best practice for landlords. A professional roofer will inspect every aspect of your roof to check for issues. Doing so allows them to nip small issues in the bud before they become costly problems. They can also perform basic maintenance like gutter clearance to avoid build-up and blockages.

3 simple roofing tips for landlords

To sum things up, here are three tips to make sure roofing doesn’t add to your stress as a landlord:

  • Have a trusted roofer – First of all, find a reliable local roofer who can help with any roofing repairs you require. Ask other landlords, read reviews online and check for accreditations to make sure they’re dependable.
  • Book an annual inspection – As above, your roof should be inspected once a year to check for any problems. A trusted roofing company will always recommend the best solution for your roof, including when replacement is necessary.
  • Encourage tenants to report – While it might be tempting to minimise communication with tenants, it’s not a good idea when it comes to your roof. Encourage them to report any leaks or other issues they spot as soon as possible. Remember, they’re helping you in the long run by doing so!

Roofers you can rely on in Barnsley

If you want to make your life simpler as a landlord, a dependable local roofing company is worth its weight in gold. DPR Roofing has been working with landlords across Barnsley and the surrounding areas for over 30 years.

3 Weather Warning Types and How They Affect Your Roof

3 Weather Warning Types and How They Affect Your Roof

3 Weather Warning Types and How They Affect Your Roof

Depending on the seasonal changes of where you live, you may be exposed to some unexpected weather conditions throughout the year.

While storms and heavy rain can get in the way of daily life, they can also affect the integrity of your roof. In this post, we’ll look at three types of weather warning – wind, rain and ice – and how they impact roofs.

How does wind affect your roof?

British roofs can usally withstand wind speed of up to 70mph. However, you may not get the same level of durability from older roofs that have steadily declined in quality over time.

Cracked tiles, broken materials and general wear and tear of materials will weaken your roof. Without expert repairs and maintenance in place, strong winds can easily rip and tear at your roof, causing further damage.

Roofs exposed to high winds often begin to take damage from the edges rather than the central points. Wind can enter under unsecured materials and lift or loosen tiles and nails with force.

The looser your tiles, the easier it is for wind to enter underneath your tiles and cause more damage. If your roof is not repaired and strong winds are followed by heavy rain, it may cause leaks and water damage to your timbers and joints.

What about heavy rain?

The UK has adapted well to rainy weather – we’ve had enough practice, after all. However, even the toughest of roofs can succumb to water damage if they have not been properly cared for.

Rainwater can accumulate flat roofs and cause damage if it sits for too long. In order to prevent puddles on your roof, you should make sure that the water can be sufficiently drained away.

Clogging or overflow that occurs in your gutters can have a knock-on effect on your foundations. That’s why you should clean away unwanted materials such as stones, leaves, sticks and mud that make their way into your gutters during heavy storms.

Of course, heavy rain can also expose existing areas of damage on your roof. Even the smallest crack or gap will allow water through, which will only get worse if left ignored.

Don’t forget ice!

Another weather warning in the UK is for ice. While we don’t see temperatures as low as many other countries, any drop below zero causes water to freeze, which can lead to freeze-thaw action on your roof.

Simply put, this is the process of water freezing and expanding, before thawing and contracting. If water gets into tiny cracks and freezes, it will make them bigger and bigger over time.

A weather warning for your roof

Whether it’s rain, wind or ice, weather warnings are invaluable as they allow you to be proactive and avoid the worst conditions. At DPR Roofing, we think Barnsley property owners should take the same proactive approach when it comes to roofing.

Having your roof inspected and repaired before and after bad weather is the best way to keep it in a good condition. This will keep you prepared for future weather warnings, and give you much-needed peace of mind when bad weather hits.

5 Ways Storm Arwen Has Damaged UK Homes

5 Ways Storm Arwen Has Damaged UK Homes

5 Ways Storm Arwen Has Damaged UK Homes

Storm Arwen hit the UK on the 26th and 27th of November, bringing exceptionally strong winds to parts of Scotland and the north of England. According to the Met Office, wind speeds peaked at 98mph in Northumberland and reached almost 70mph throughout the affected areas.

With these gale-force winds came damage – and homes were no exception. Read on as we look at five ways the storm damaged UK homes.

1.   Trees falling onto homes

It’s a nightmare for anyone who has trees near their home. Unfortunately, that nightmare became a reality for a family in Gateshead. Just after going to bed on Saturday night, their house was shaken as a 60-foot conifer tree came crashing onto the roof.

While the damage to the roof is yet to be inspected, a video posted by Chronicle Live shows extensive damage to their fence and the neighbouring garden where the tree was situated.

2.   Power outages

Buildings weren’t the only victim of falling trees. They also caused serious disruption by falling into roads, onto railways and – in three tragic incidences with Storm Arwen – onto people.

Power lines were also hit, with over a million homes losing power during the storm. That continued for several days, with more than 100,000 homes affected, as power companies struggled to repair the damage.

3.   Fence damage

One of the most common complaints from Storm Arwen was the havoc it wreaked on fences. While these stories weren’t quite as newsworthy, the force of the wind was enough to blow out the wooden panels between concrete posts or, for those fences with less heavy-duty supports, take down the fence altogether.

4.   Flying debris

Normal wind can be a minor problem for homes, blowing light debris like leaves, which can clog your gutters. However, as well as felling entire trees, the strong winds from Storm Arwen will have been enough to carry larger debris like branches or parts of the broken fences mentioned above.

Travelling at speed, this debris has the potential to cause serious damage to windows, walls or even roofs.

5.   Roof damage

In many cases, the high winds damaged roofs directly too. From Scotland down to Merseyside, there are several horror stories of roofs being torn off.

There’s also the risk of hidden damage, with high winds capable of taking off loose parts like flashing, guttering and tiles. If those parts are blown far away from your property, it could be weeks before you notice a problem with your roof from the inside.

Timely inspections and repairs

If you’re concerned about your roof after the high winds of Storm Arwen, DPR Roofing is on hand to help across Barnsley. Whether you’ve spotted a problem or just want things checking for your peace of mind, our team can inspect your roof, recommend the best course of action, and implement long-lasting repairs where necessary.

Gutter Realignment: Everything You Need to Know

Gutter Realignment: Everything You Need to Know

Gutter Realignment: Everything You Need to Know

Gutter realignment is an important job for maintaining gutters that are loose, sagging or improperly pitched. It makes sure your gutters can continue to do their job and direct rainwater away from your property. In this post, we’ll discuss which gutters need realigning, how it’s done and whether it’s a job you can tackle yourself.

Do my gutters need realigning?

Gutters are essential to keep rainwater away from your walls as it falls from your roof. But to achieve that, they need to be properly aligned. That includes being in the right place to catch water as it runs off your roof.

They also need an even slope to guide rainwater towards the downpipe, and ultimately down the drain. Other than an inadequate slope, sagging gutters are also problematic, as they too will prevent rainwater from flowing freely towards the downpipe.

Your gutters will need realigning if they’re visibly uneven, sagging or coming away from the roof. You may also require realignment if you notice your gutters are overflowing, as poor alignment may be the underlying cause.

How to realign gutters

The steps for realigning gutters depend on what kind of alignment problem you’re dealing with. If it’s simply a slope issue, they’ll need to be removed and reattached with the right slope towards the downpipe. That involves taking the gutters out of their brackets, removing the brackets, then reinstalling them so the water flows correctly.

Similarly, if gutters are coming away from your roof and walls, the brackets will usually need reattaching with new fixings.

If you have sagging gutters, however, the problem might be a lack of brackets to support them. Sections of guttering that are too long will put extra pressure on the middle of the section, resulting in a sag or dip over time. In this case, additional brackets will need to be added as part of the realignment.

Alternatively, sagging could be caused by added weight from debris – in which case you’ll need to keep on top of gutter clearance once the realignment is complete.

Professional vs DIY

Gutter realignment sounds like a simple job. Because of that, many people think they can tackle it alone. However, getting gutter alignment just right is far from easy. Too steep and the water will rush into your downpipes and overflow from the top. Not steep enough and it will stay put or overflow from the gutters themselves in heavy rain.

On top of all that, it’s never advisable to be up on ladders without the right safety training. Even if you’re confident up there, it’s another kettle of fish trying to do precise work for long periods. Rather than risking your safety and getting frustrated with a trial-and-error approach, it’s better to leave gutter realignment to the professionals, who can get the positioning and slope just right.

Should I Clean My Own Gutters?

Should I Clean My Own Gutters?

Should I Clean My Own Gutters?

As the months and years pass, it’s only natural that gutters start to accumulate leaves, moss and other debris. If you’ve spotted that in your own gutters, you might think it’s time to get the ladder out. Read on as we discuss whether it’s the right thing to do.

Do your gutters need cleaning?

The first question to ask is whether your gutters need cleaning. In the majority of cases, the answer is yes. Quite simply, gutters need to be clean and clear to do their job – which is to guide rainwater towards the downpipes as it comes off your roof.

Leaves, twigs, moss and more can all create an obstruction, which causes water to overflow from your gutters. Once they’re wet, these obstructions become compact and add extra weight to your gutters that could cause sagging or cracks.

Alternatively, bits of dirt and grit can work into the joints of your gutters and create an opening. The result is water leaking out of your gutters and causing issues for your walls, or even the foundations of your property. To conclude – yes, gutters should be cleared out at least once a year.

Is it a DIY job?

The next issue is whether it’s something you can tackle yourself. Some will know it isn’t. Others might feel like a have-a-go hero. Unfortunately for the latter, we really don’t recommend anyone gets up on a ladder to clear their own gutters.


Even if you feel confident on a ladder, it’s another kettle of fish staying up there for longer periods to properly clear out gutters – and then going up and down to reach different spots. Gutter clearance should only be attempted by people with the right training for working at height, and health and safety at the forefront.

Avoiding damage

Going beyond your own safety, leaving gutter clearance to a professional team will avoid any damage to your property. Going it alone, your gutters could be damaged by the incorrect positioning of the ladder – or even worse, the impact of a slip.


Let’s not forget the main acid test for gutter clearance either. Compared to a professional team, you’ll never be able to achieve the best results. Experienced roofers will know how to get every last bit of debris out of your gutters, including any blockages in downpipes. They can even flush out with clean water following a good clean.


Finally, there’s the convenience. Even if you manage to get away unscathed, do a decent job and avoid any damage to your gutters, you’ve still had to be out in the cold, scooping mess out of your gutters. It’s not pleasant at all, which is yet another reason it’s not worth doing it yourself.

Professional gutter clearance

Using a reliable gutter clearance company provides safety, convenience and the best results. That’s exactly what we deliver at DPR Roofing. Whether it’s for a commercial or domestic property, you’ll get the same top-rate service that makes us the go-to guttering specialists for customers throughout Barnsley – and has done for over three decades.

Commercial Property Checklist as Employees Return to Work

Commercial Property Checklist as Employees Return to Work

Commercial Property Checklist as Employees Return to Work

With the furlough scheme ending on 30th September, businesses will need to decide whether they’re making staff redundant or taking them back on. That means countless employees will be returning to their workplaces, which have been at low or no capacity for the majority of the past 18 months.

With that in mind, it’s paramount to make sure your commercial property is safe and functional. Read on for four key areas to check…

1. Roof

18 months is a long time for your roof. It’s had to endure two springs, two summers, a cold, harsh winter, and an autumn that included the UK’s wettest day on record. That all occurred without the usual workforce around to spot small issues developing.

When reopening your workplace at full capacity, be sure to get your roof professionally inspected before arranging any necessary repairs. It will ensure your factory, warehouse, office or shop is safe for the return of staff (and potentially customers), as well as preventing further damage developing from water ingress.

2. Gutters

Not a million miles from your roof, your gutters are another area which could require some care and attention after a period of inactivity. Autumn in particular will have been problematic for your guttering, with leaves and other debris being blown onto your roof and eventually clogging up your gutters.

If it’s left untreated, that debris could cause gutters to overflow, leak or even come away from your roof. The best course of action is to book in a professional gutter clearance service. That will ensure your gutters are clean, clear and in good working order for complete safety and peace of mind.

3. Electrics

From Electric Installation Condition Reports to regular PAT testing, there are all kinds of electrical checks and inspections required to keep your commercial property safe and compliant. But with such a prolonged period away from the workplace, it’s understandable that some of these might have been put on the backburner.

With your commercial site back at full capacity, it’s important to make sure the electric system and all equipment have been properly inspected and confirmed as safe to use. As well as the checks mentioned above, be sure to check your fire alarms and emergency lighting to keep your property prepared for an emergency.

4. Mould!

Last but not least is mould. With some or all of your commercial property out of use, chances are the space won’t have been kept at a comfortable temperature or particularly well ventilated. That cold, moist environment provides the perfect conditions for damp and mould to develop.

As well as being an off-putting eyesore, mould can cause a number of respiratory issues for your employees. Before getting everyone back in, it’s important to check for mould throughout your property and take steps to stop it coming back.

For all your roofing needs….

While we can’t help with electrics or mould directly, the team at DPR Roofing is on hand throughout Barnsley to help prepare your commercial property for a full return to work. Our expert roofers can provide vital commercial roof repairs and gutter clearance services to get you back up and running for the return to normality.

Why You Should Always Get a Warranty on Your New Roof

Why You Should Always Get a Warranty on Your New Roof

Why You Should Always Get a Warranty on Your New Roof

A new roof is a significant investment for any property owner. Thankfully, the return on that investment is pretty significant too – an effective umbrella for your home or commercial building, protecting it from the elements all year round.

To maximise that return, you want to make sure your roof continues to do its job over the years. That’s where a new roof warranty can help…

What do roof warranties cover?

Broadly speaking, there are two types of cover which can be included in a roof warranty – materials and workmanship.

Material warranties

Material or product warranties are provided by manufacturers, guaranteeing that their products will stand the test of time for a specified number of years.

If any tiles are found to be defective within the warranty period, manufacturers or suppliers will replace them at no extra cost. In some cases, this only covers materials which were faulty on delivery – so they won’t replace materials damaged during the installation process.

Workmanship warranties

On the other hand, workmanship warranties protect you from any issues with your roof that arise from its installation. Put simply, if your roof starts leaking within a few months or years of its installation, your roofing contractor will be liable to fix it at no extra cost.

In many cases, however, this excludes damage that cannot be attributed to the roofer themselves. For example, any impact damage from a fallen tree, or alterations made after the installation, will not be covered. Similarly, if anyone has been up on your roof and caused damage – such as an aerial installer – your roofer will not be accountable.

How long do they last?

The length of new roof warranties can vary from contractor to contractor. To start with, some roofers simply won’t offer one. It’s well worth steering clear of these traders, as a lack of a proper warranty isn’t a great sign of trust in their own work.

Other roofers will offer warranties varying from 2-3 years, right up to a decade. The general rule of thumb is: the longer the warranty, the better. However, it’s worth noting that some disreputable roofers won’t honour their warranty at all. The minute something goes wrong with your roof, they’ll be impossible to reach.

Here are some additional trust factors to consider if you want to make sure your warranty is worthwhile…

Are they certified?

Roofers with certifications and accreditations have already been vetted for their reliability and trustworthiness. Look for Trustmark, the Confederation of Roofing Contractors, and the Property Care Association, as a minimum.

How long have they been around?

Roofers who don’t honour their warranties face a short career. Without being too harsh on newcomers, roofers that have been around for over a decade provide an additional trust factor.

Are they well reviewed?

Whether it’s Trustpilot, Google or just Facebook, reviews are a great way to see whether other customers have had issues with a roofer. If they’re regularly dodging issues with roofs they’ve installed, it’s pretty likely to be mentioned in their reviews.

Get a warranty for your new roof

Whether it’s domestic or commercial, new roofs provide peace of mind that your property is protected from the elements. But they should also come with the assurance that you’re protected from any issues – and that means a proper warranty.

At DPR Roofing, we install top quality new roofs with warranties of up to 10 years. That’s paired with recognised accreditations, 30 years’ experience, and great reviews from a long list of happy customers, so you know we’ll be there when you need us.

Is Ponding Normal on a Flat Roof?

Is Ponding Normal on a Flat Roof?

Is Ponding Normal on a Flat Roof?

Noticed water sitting on your flat roof? After a few searches online, you’ll no doubt come across the term ‘ponding’ or ‘pooling’. The next question is whether it’s completely normal or something you should worry about. Read on as we take a closer look.

Why ponding is ‘normal’

In some ways, ponding is ‘normal’ on flat roofs, in the sense that it’s quite common. While well-kept pitched roofs can last anywhere between 40-100 years, flat roofs have a lifespan closer to 20 years. In that time, various problems can develop that lead to ponding.

A build-up of debris on the roof can catch water, eventually causing materials to wear away in particular spots and make the ponding worse. Or debris could build up in your gutters, blocking the route for water to run off.

Alternatively, you might have particularly low spots on your roof where the covering or substrate has worn away. That could lead to a vicious cycle where ponding water makes the low spots even worse.

And why it isn’t…

On the other hand, ponding isn’t ‘normal’ to a degree that you should just accept it. For one, because it could be easily repaired. Debris can be cleared from your roof and gutters to stop water ponding. You can also eliminate low spots or use roof crickets around protrusions like skylights to get rid of ponding.

If the problem is spotted early enough, these fixes can eliminate ponding before any permanent damage is done. However, if you accept it as ‘normal’, the ponding will only get worse, which puts extra pressure on the materials.

On top of all that, ponding could be a sign that your roof has come to the end of its lifespan. Instead of dismissing it as a normality for flat roofs, you could be proactive in arranging a replacement. That would mean sidestepping all the hassle and internal damage from water leaking into your property.

Ponding vs normal runoff

Finally, it’s worth noting that not all water on your flat roof is classed as ponding. Despite the name, flat roofs have a very low slope of around 1-10 degrees, which allows water to make its way slowly but surely into your gutters and drainpipes.

Compared to the 25- to 45-degree slope on pitched roofs, this means water is much slower to make its way off your flat roof. However, if rainwater forms a small puddle, and it’s still there after 48 hours, then it’s probably time to call a roofer.

Eliminate ponding on your flat roof

Want to stop water ponding on your flat roof? With a wealth of experience installing and repairing flat roofs around Barnsley, DPR Roofing can identify the root cause of ponding water and eliminate it for good.

Whether it’s a small fix or a complete replacement, we’ll always recommend the best solution for your property. To get the ball rolling, contact our team on 01226 670 008 or email [email protected], and we’ll arrange an inspection at a time and date that suits you.

How Many Days Does It Rain in the UK?

How Many Days Does It Rain in the UK?

How Many Days Does It Rain in the UK?

While we do enjoy a couple of weeks of sun in the summer, the UK is hardly renowned for its tropical climate. Instead, most Brits are used to drizzly days and unexpected downpours.

The result is some of the world’s muddiest festivals, a national love of board games, and an instinctive urge to take a coat everywhere, just in case. Let’s not forget the heightened risk of leaks at home if your property isn’t well maintained.

But just how much does it rain in the UK? And how can you avoid some of the problems that come with it?

Rain, rain, go away

When you’re continuously seeing sports events called off or getting caught in a shower without a coat, it’s easy to think it rains in the UK more often than not. In fact, you wouldn’t be too far from the truth.

According to 2019 statistics, the UK had approximately 164.6 rain days – defined as days in which at least 1mm of rain fell. To put that in context, that’s around 45% of the entire year. Needless to say, it varies each year, with the year 2000 seeing a whopping 178.6 rain days on average.

It also varies from place to place. With mountainous landscapes and a northernly location, Scotland is the wettest country in the UK, while England is actually drier than its neighbours. However, when it comes to urban locations, England has its fair share, with Leeds, Bradford and Preston all making the top 10 rainiest cities.

Protecting your home from leaks

Some people look forward to the summer all year. Others love the magic of frost and snow in winter. But hardly anyone sees rain as their idea of fun. The wet stuff is enough to put a dampener on holidays, cancel days out and soak through anyone who’s not prepared.

But on a more serious note, it can create issues for your property. Worries about the number of rainy days are amplified if you’re in an area that’s at risk of flooding. Alternatively, you might have a roof with recurring problems, that’s just one heavy spell of rain away from another leak.

In September 2020, the government extended its grant scheme, which allows property owners to apply for up to £5,000 for flood protection. Properties flooded in November 2019 now have until 31st December 2021 to apply, while the deadline has been extended to 1st July 2022 for those flooded in February 2020.

Thankfully, things are much simpler when it comes to your roof. No matter how heavy the rain, or how many days it rains for, a well installed roof will protect your home from the elements all year round.

Is your roof rain-ready?

If you’re concerned about the state of your roof, the best way to know for sure is with a professional inspection from a trusted roofing company. With over three decades of experience in Barnsley and the surrounding areas, DPR Roofing can provide complete peace of mind when it comes to your roof.

Our fully trained roofers will inspect every aspect of your roof and recommend the best course of action to keep your property protected from the rain. Contact us on 01226 670 008 or email [email protected] to get the ball rolling.

Scaffolding vs Powered Access Boom – Which is Best for Your Roof?

Scaffolding vs Powered Access Boom – Which is Best for Your Roof?

Scaffolding vs Powered Access Boom – Which is Best for Your Roof?

Reaching high or inaccessible roofs can be a tricky business. Scaffolding has been solving that problem for centuries, but powered access booms are a modern alternative rapidly growing in popularity. Which is best for your roof?

The pros of powered access booms

Also known as cherry pickers, powered access booms are a highly versatile solution which afford the opportunity to reach great heights and difficult-to-access parts of your roof with ease. With a slimline mobile base unit, the powered access boom from DPR Roofing can squeeze into tight spaces and extend to roof height, allowing roofing specialists to manoeuvre them into position quickly, easily and effectively. As such, they’re the perfect option for performing emergency repairs on a leaky roof, since there’s no time-consuming setup process involved.

That makes them suitable for initial consultations or minor repair works, as well. After all, it’s not practical to spend hours erecting a scaffolding system, only to use the structure for a matter of mere minutes to perform a quick touch-up job on faulty tiles or slates – especially if the repairs are time-sensitive. The efficiency of a powered access boom can drastically reduce the time and costs that scaffolding entails.

A time and a place for traditional scaffolding

Having said that, there are many situations where scaffolding is more appropriate. It’s the most commonly used method of high access due to the reliability and stability it offers, ensuring a safe working environment for roofers, glaziers and other professionals who need to work at heights.

Scaffolding is the number one solution for longer-lasting projects such as roof replacements, since it offers maximum longevity and accessibility to all angles of the affected area without the need to reposition it.

Of course, it’s imperative that any scaffolding structures are put in place by a competent and qualified company who have experience in installing and dismantling structures safely. At DPR Roofing in Barnsley, we only work with the best scaffolders in the business, so you can rest assured all work on your roof is completely safe and secure.

Picking the right solution for you

It’s important to take into account the unique circumstances of each project when deciding which high access solution is appropriate. Arriving at the right choice will involve considering the type of repairs required and the amount of time they’re likely to take, as well as the dimensions of the property itself and the available ground space around it. And of course, the costs attached to the project are always a key factor in any decision-making process.

Thankfully, at DPR Roofing, we have plenty of experience with both scaffolding and powered access booms throughout Barnsley. With engineers capable of setting up scaffolding at the drop of a hat and a state-of-the-art access boom at our disposal, we can assess the conditions at your property and provide our expert opinion on which solution suits you best. With DPR, you can rest assured that we’ll recommend the safest, strongest and most cost-effective option, every single time.
