What is Tiling and Slating

At RGS we understand the importance of maintaining the exterior of your home, which is why we offer high-quality fascia and guttering services to homeowners in the Hornchurch, Essex area. Our team of experienced professionals is committed to providing top-notch service and ensuring that your home is protected from the elements. Fascia and guttering are essential components of your home’s exterior. Fascia is the horizontal board that runs along the edge of your roofline and serves as a support for your gutters. Guttering is the trough-like structure that collects rainwater and channels it away from your home’s foundation.

Why Use High Quality Tiles

Properly functioning fascia and guttering are crucial for protecting your home from water damage. If your gutters are clogged or damaged, water can overflow and seep into your home’s foundation, causing structural damage and potentially even flooding. Additionally, damaged fascia can lead to rotting wood, which can compromise the structural integrity of your roofline. Neglecting your fascia and guttering can lead to a host of issues, including water damage, mold growth, and pest infestations. In addition to these potential health hazards, neglected fascia and guttering can also reduce your home’s curb appeal and value.

Is maintenance required on E.P.D.M Roofing?

EPDM is the acceptable abbreviation for Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer, a synthetic rubber compound that gives high-performance waterproofing when laid in a single piece of membrane over a flat roof surface.

Lead is highly versatile and has been used in roofing for years. This is because it’s not only easy to source, but it is cost-effective, highly durable and water resistant. However, over time the elements do what they do best and erode away the performance of your lead roof. If you’ve noticed that your lead roofing is starting to look a little tired, then it might be time for you to replace it.

Put simply, to keep the outside drainage system of your home working, you need to clear your gutters. If your gutters become blocked, rainwater can overflow and run down the walls of your house.

Liquid roofing, once correctly applied, can have an expected service life of up to 30 years. It can perform as well as many types of membrane over a wide range of substrates.

No heat/flame required on installation which is ideal for areas with potential fire risk due to combustible materials. Can be installed over most existing roof substrates minimising cost and waste.

Yes. Although it can be fitted in the rain, the minimum temperature for application of the adhesive is +5ºC and maximum humidity is 80%. If the temperature is likely to drop below freezing during the 48 hours after application, you should use Bonding Adhesive.

No one wants surprises, especially if they come with financial implications. If you own a property, the chances are that you understand the shock associated with an extensive repair and this is no different for lead roofing. When it comes to lead roof maintenance, you must monitor it regularly to detect problems early enough to prevent the need to do expensive repairs down the road. Although it may sound trivial, it is often outside of a property owner’s general tasks or routine.
