3 Signs You Need A New Roof

When it comes to your roof, it can often be forgotten. As you can’t see it it’s not always the first thing on your mind, however without proper care and regular checks your roof can deteriorate and cause serious damage to your home. In this blog we discuss 3 signs that indicate you need a new roof.


The age of your roof is a major factor in whether you need a replacement. The average life span of a roof in the UK is 25 years but this can vary on your local weather conditions. If your roof is nearing this age or even past the 25 years, we highly encourage you to call and expert to have it checked. Here at D Simpson Roof Rite we offer free no-obligation quotes and can come out to assess your roof providing advice on the next steps.


No matter how small, if water can enter your home it’s only a matter of time before the problem gets worse. If you have a leak it’s important to know that just because you might find a leak it doesn’t always come from that particular location, most likely it has travelled so it’s always important to have someone pinpoint the location.
