One common roofing problem that causes damp…

Do you want to know one of the MOST common roofing problems that causes damp?

 

Do you have a tiled pitched roof with a felt underlay fitted before 2000?

 

Do you have signs of damp on walls close to the roof?

 

 Then chances are your felt underlay has rotted away near to the gutter, allowing water to pass into the cavity, causing damp walls!

This common problem can be fixed without the need to re-felt the whole of your roof.

See below how this problem can be resolved:

The lower section of tiles are removed, with the felt underlay cut away

A plastic tray is then fitted to the base of the rafters, which overhangs into the gutter

A new lower section of felt underlay is then fitted

New tile batten is fitted

The existing tiles are then put back

For any roofing works please call 01483 234701 or email info@premierheating.net  

Charities Still Need Our Help

We help change lives through everyday business activities, by giving to a project every time we install a new boiler.

The last year has not been an easy year for most of us, so I’m grateful for the support our customers are giving us by continuing to use our services. From the work our customers provided in 2020 we have managed to donate £4,256.00 to Cherry Trees, which pays for 220 hours of play, laugh and new experiences for children with severe physical and mental disabilities at Cherry Trees.

Charities still need our help with funding, now more than ever

Could you be a giving business too, by regularly giving something to a worthy cause?

Cherry Trees is a small charity providing exceptional home-from-home specialist short breaks/respite for children and young adults aged 0-19 with a range of complex disabilities including learning, physical and sensory impairments.

Founded in 1980 by a group of parents and doctors, Cherry Trees is a lifeline for the families of more than 100 children and young people who are regularly cared for here, whether it be after school for a few hours, a weekend or even a couple of weeks stay.

Cherry Trees is a unique place, providing professional care in a safe, stimulating and fun environment, where every child is valued for who they are.  It is a community that is dedicated to children and young people, enabling them to spend time with friends and enjoy new experiences and opportunities, while their families have a much needed break.
