Considering re-roofing works? Time to think outside the box

Should we be expecting more from our roof, now, in 2017? The answer to this question is a resounding “Yes”

‘A roof over your head’ is a basic human need and something that we usually take for granted. At the very least, we all expect the roof on our homes to keep out the rain and wind so we can stay warm and dry indoors.

Nothing lasts forever …

It is a fact of life that roofs don’t last forever, 60 years being a typical lifespan. Leaks and general wear and tear eventually take their toll and mean that repair is no longer cost effective. Unfortunately, a new roof is then the only viable option. We call this a “distress purchase” – an unwanted expense forced upon us – but why not look at it from a different point of view?

Considerable advances have been made over recent years resulting in new roofing materials and techniques capable of providing massive savings in energy, your carbon footprint and, of course, money.

Thinking outside the box

Ploughcroft has long been “thinking outside the box” where roofing is concerned. With its innovative approach to roofing technology they consistently encourage homeowners and businesses to do the same. With several new roofing inventions and a successful pitch on TV’s “Dragon’s Den” under its belt, this is no ordinary roofing company. Managing Director Chris Hopkins explains:

“We undertake new and replacement roofing of all types including heritage roofing, but a particular speciality is roofing difficult to heat areas like older buildings, bungalows or properties with an attic conversion, room in the roof or vaulted ceiling.

With this in mind, Ploughcroft has combined a re-roof with high quality insulation. This is called Eco Roof™ and is the ideal solution for older homes, with its thermal blanket creating a warm, cosy, usable living space. We carry out insulation from the outside to minimise disruption and the result is a room which stays warm in winter but cool in summer. Eco Roof™ will save you money on heating, increase your property value and also raise your Energy Performance Certificate by up to two bands.”

Investing in a new replacement roof is therefore a great opportunity to think to the future. Modern roofing systems will not only make your home weather-proof but a lot more comfortable and energy efficient too. After all - there is only one way energy costs are going! Upgrading your home by bringing it into the 21st century could save a fortune on your heating bills in the long run, helping you pay for those essential home improvements along the way!

For further details about reroofing options for your home, you can visit Ploughcroft at its Eco Roof and Eco Build Visitor Centre in Hipperholme or view the website www.ploughcroft.co.uk.
