Roof wind damage is an increasing problem. This is because we seem to be having more storms and stronger winds. A roof is only as strong as its weakest point. Frequently ridge tiles are the victims of strong winds. When ridge tiles are blown off, the whole roof becomes vulnerable.

Many of our clients in the Oswestry and Wrexham districts live in rural areas. This often means they are more vulnerable to wind damage.

Roof Wind Damage in Ellesmere

The above situation is the case at a property in Ellesmere. Winds regularly caused damage to the ridge tiles. Understandably, our customer did not need this as an ongoing situation, instead, they need a permanent fix.

Modern Dry Ridge System

We are up to date with all the latest roofing systems so that our customers receive the best advice. Instead of using sand and cement, a dry ridge system is mechanically fixed to the roof. This system is much more resilient during storms and high winds.

Look closer at the picture below and you will be able to see the fixing.
