Frequently Asked Questions

I have noticed cement/mortar that’s fallen from the roof area – I think it’s from the chimney or gable end. What should I do?

If you stand back from your property and take a photo ensuring as much of the roof is in the picture as possible, plus any close-up photos of where you think it may have come from, we may be able to advise from the picture. You can send them via WhatsApp or text to 07553973904 - please include a short description.

I have a couple of roof tiles damaged/missing from my roof, can someone quickly put a ladder up and restore them?

Once a price has been agreed, we can book in an operative to come out and do this. If the missing/damaged tiles are easily accessible from the ladder, then this can be facilitated. If the tiles in question are higher up, or in a difficult to reach place, then we would arrange for scaffolding to be installed to ensure the safety of our operatives.

Do you re-point chimneys?

Yes, we do. Please call or text us on 07553973904 to arrange for someone to come and provide a quotation for this work.

Do you deal with the removal and/or the disposal of asbestos?

Unfortunately, we don’t do either. We would recommend that you seek a local asbestos removal firm to help you with this. Should you require a new roof covering for after the removal, then do please get in touch.

Do you do rubber roofing?

We do a Resitrix version, called EPDM. We recommend this product as it has a bitumen-based backing which means that there is no need for adhesives. Usually, when a rubber roof fails or develops issues, it is usually the adhesive that can cause the problem. It’s a popular, well used product that can provide the customer with a 20-year guarantee.

I have water coming through a light fitting following some heavy rainfall, what should I do?

Turn the power off to the light via the fuse box and place a bucket or large bowl underneath. Immediately call an electrician who will isolate the power safely. Then call us on 07553973904 to arrange an appointment for us to come and see your roof.

If the ceiling is bulging with rainwater in one spot, you can take a pencil and pierce a hole in the swelling. This will allow the water to escape rather than causing further damage. It will be more cost effective to repair a small hole in the ceiling paint, rather than replacing areas in the roof above.

Remember to put another bucket or bowl underneath this area before you do this!

There’s a damp patch appearing on my bedroom ceiling, I think the roof might be leaking somewhere. Any ideas?

Damp can often be a precursor to further water coming into the property, so to tackle this issue sooner rather than later, will be more cost effective for you. There could be various explanations, such as, a blocked gutter causing water to be soaked through the brickwork, or rainwater getting behind the tiles on a pitched roof, or if the patch is underneath a flat roof, it could mean that the covering has failed.

Depending on how much water is entering the property, will depend how quickly the patch spreads. Please take a photo of the area and text or WhatsApp us on 07553973904 where we can advise you further.

Do you accept credit cards?

We do not, however, we do accept payment by cheque or bank transfer.

    Dave and his team provided an excellent service throughout.

  • Check Bay window flat roof for leaks

    Leicester - February 2020

    He checked the roof and saw the guttering was full of leaves. Not only did he clear this, collect the rubbish up, he advised he thought this may be the reason for water coming inside. He didn't charge and took a photo - very sensible - so if that had not solved it he would be able to quote for the job. Top man in my opinion and I would have no hesitation having him back...

  • Complete re-roof (Pitched roof)

    Leicester - November 2021

    We couldn’t recommend DLT roofing enough! We are slowly renovating our family home and started with our 70+ year old tiled roof. The team were prompt on arrival each morning, and barely stopped until they were done. We were so impressed with the hard work and polite nature of the team, some of the most professional workmen we have ever encountered and the work was completed in record time. I didn't....

    DLT roofing proved 100% reliable, from initial assessment to completion of work, the quality of which looks very good. Everything was left immaculately clean and tidy afterwards.
