Roofing repairs and maintenance in Falkirk Scotland

Roofing repairs and maintenance

Not a full roof replacement you need, no problem, we provide a range of other services from small one off repairs to regular maintenance programs, read on to find out how we can help you.

Repairs & Maintenance Program

Regular maintenance of your roof, regardless of the type, plays a huge role in prolonging the length of time your roof will last. Carrying out small repairs when required and a regular maintenance check will help greatly in preventing a small problem becoming a large and costly one.

We have helped loads of lovely customers avoid disaster through our maintenance plans and have also been able to give pre warning to work that will be required in the future, this is another benefit of using our plan as it can help you budget in advance of work that may be required a few months or years down the road.

If you are unsure if you have a problem I’ve created a super 7 step guide to help you spot the potential signs that you need to call us, just pop in you details and it will be with you right away.

Any questions just give Nicola or I a call on 01324 309043 and we are happy to have a chat.

Lead Work

Lead can be used for a variety of reasons from full lead roofs to a number of lead details which can be found in may areas of both heritage and modern roofs.

It is essential that all lead work is carried out to Lead Sheet Association (LSA) Standard and by choosing us you are guaranteed of that. Building on the wealth of experience we have our skills have been endorsed by Angus College who run Lead Welding and Bossing Courses on behalf of the LSA.

Take a look at the examples of our Lead Work which helps to illustrate the areas lead can be found.

Chimney Stack Repairs and Removals

Whether you still use your chimney or have it for feature purposes we can help you keep it in tact. From roughcasting and pointing to the traditional sandstone and lime mortar repairs you can be assured of a quality finish when we are done.

On the other hand we can also remove your chimney completely and re roof to match your existing roof provided you are not restricted by local planning, we can help you check  so you get it right.

Roof Windows

As Velux 5* Approved Installers we are the go to guys for your roof window or sun tunnel installation (of any brand), we have years of experience in roof windows and sun tunnels which was recognised by Velux and we were given their seal of approval.  

This is extra peace of mind for you should you need new or replacement windows. Your windows will not only look fab but your roof will be correctly adapted to accommodate it and we can even take care of any plaster work which may be required on the internal side of things.

Do you have an area in you home that lacks light?

A sun tunnel could be just the answer to you problem. Not sure if it would be right for you, get in touch and I will pop round and take a look.

Belgrave, Edinburgh

 On the gorgeous rooftops in central Edinburgh this traditional Victorian skylight was in need of some love. This window was fully restored which seen us fully replace all lead work and carryout all slate work required whilst coordinating with the joiners onsite. Love these images in Edinburgh, chimneys, chimneys and more chimneys.

Doune, Stirling

This was the second job we carried out on this property and were delighted to be invited back again. This involved replacing 2 old Velux windows to the hall and the bathroom with a new state of the art Velux Centre-Pivot Solar Powered Windows which allows our lovely client to open and close these windows by remote control. With the rain sensors also included the windows close automatically should the rain come on so you need not worry about a heavy downpour.

The benefit of these windows are they come with specialised flashing kits which helps to remove any internal decoration being required, which in this case was perfect as the bathroom ceiling was tiled and the window with the white polyurethane internal finish fitted like a glove.

Lochmaben Drive, Falkirk

This small job replacing all gutters and downpipes was completed in a couple of days and got rid of the annoying leaks for our client. The brown colour sets off the property and the clients were delighted with the finished result.

Mannerston Holdings

This job presented some challenges even before we were near the roof. An electric cable was right in our working area and between the client, ourselves and the power company arrangements had to be made to make safe.

Once this was ticked off the list we were then able to get on with removing a chimney and installing a new Velux window. Great little job but the weather could have been kinder to us.

Chimney Removal, Falkirk

The chimney on this property was beginning to fail and as it was no longer in use the owners decided to have it removed. Once the full scaffolding was in place we carefully removed the chimney and using reclaimed Rosemary tiles we tiled back in the area, reclaimed tiles were used to ensure they blended in with the original roof and did not look out of place.

Soulliac Drive, Denny

This property was having problems with the loft condensing and cause dampness and drips. We have seen a lot of this recently and one of the causes can be incorrectly installed loft insulation,  in some cases this prevents the roof space from breathing and stops the air flow leading to condensation.

On this property we recommended installing roof vents to improve the airflow and problem is thankfully now resolved.

Rooftec Scotland Reviews

Dealing with Rooftec...has been a first class experience.

I was recommended Rooftec by friend who does a good deal of work with Historic Scotland. Our first meeting couldn't have gone any better Mark turned up as agreed armed with full range of slates talked us through the process and assured us from the word go that the job would be fully documented including a portfolio of photographs.

We chose Mark ahead of three other quotes not because he was the cheapest, in fact he was middle of the prices we received, but because quite simply he was so professional from the first minute we met. He instantly put our minds at ease about the project we were about to start, a reslating of a 150yr old original roof.

He was the only person who took the time to explain the differences in slates, he was also extremely sympathetic to the historic nature of the house which was a major part for us. He explained the differences from Spanish 'A'grade to the one we chose the Welsh Penrhyn Slate, as it was the closest colouring and quality of the slate that was being replaced.

From day 1, Mark was very keen to make sure we understood what he was talking about with regards to facias, sarking etc and it helped us through what turned out to be a bigger project than anyone could have imagined, owing to the age and state of disrepair that we were dealing with on our roof. Onwards and upwards the team at Rooftec can only be described as truly professional, often seen at the end of full day shift literally picking up odd nails or slate chippings from the days work, to leave thesite clean tidy and safe.

Fast forward to the end of the project, the elements weren't particularly kind to us in parts, but Mark assured us that all scaffold would be gone pre Xmas with two minor elevations to be done in the New Year. There was never any doubt that he would keep to his word .Three days before Xmas all scaffold was removed revealing a truly magnificent roof ... and we have just come to the end of the first week back at work and the two small elevations fully completed and site immaculate.Dealing with Rooftec, from Mark, Nicola to the lads on site on a daily basis has been a first class experience. We have a full portfolio of photos of everything that went into the end result. We are now the proud owners of the finest looking roof in the area and we have had nothing but compliments from neighbours.

Many thanks again
