Roofing Contractors Glasgow. Spring time is upon us and many of you will be thinking of making some repairs to your property’s roofing area after a wet and windy Scottish winter. Choosing materials and repairing your roof are important steps in maintaining the safety and value of your home. A number of roofing options are available to protect its contents and structure, each with installation factors that affect project prices. Consider the type, size, and features of your roof as you plan and budget for installation.
Roof Maintenance on Homes and Businesses
The size, height and characteristics of residential and commercial buildings often differ from one another, and roofing options range accordingly. Roof maintenance on single family homes does not generally require the use of special equipment, and can be completed for an affordable price. Apartment and commercial buildings – often larger and taller than houses – require several workman, sometimes with special lifts and safety equipment to install roofing efficiently. Roofing Contractors Glasgow, will provide you with a bespoke maintenance plan which will factor in your budget and maintenance requirements.
New and Replacement Roof Installations
Installing roofing during construction or maintenance is generally an efficient process. West End Roofing can install edging, flat roofing, flashing, and tiles, without working around or removing existing materials. Prices for new roof installations or replacement roof projects (flat or pitched) are more affordable than you may think. Any roof repair will require the removal, disposal, and replacement of roofing and flashing materials. West End Roofing include these tasks withing our costing structure.
Objects that protrude from your roof, such as roof windows, dormers or chimneys require special attention when installing roofing materials. Proper sealing and flashing are needed to prevent water penetration around and under some installations. The type and number of features to accommodate on your roof will affect project pricing. Working around an antenna or satellite dish may also be a consideration on your property. Roofing Contractors Glasgow will consider and plan negotiation of these objects before any work commences.
A key consideration on any roof repair or replacement is the covering area of your roof. Roof installations are frequently priced according to the overall square footage or metre square of the roof surface, with rates quoted “by the square”, or per 100 square feet with materials used also affecting the overall cost.

Natural Slate Roofs
Natural slate provides a classic and beautiful look for homes of many styles, and is a durable material that can last several decades with proper maintenance. Slate roof installations require some very careful planning, since special skills and tools are required. Slate is a very heavy roofing material, and installation may in some cases, require joist improvements or strengthening to support the additional weight.
Clay and concrete roofing tiles are popular in many areas throughout Scotland, with a variety of designs adding character to a number of home styles. Prices for tile roof installations are very competitive with rates affected by the type and material of tiles. Like natural slate, tile roofs are durable and fire resistant, and can last for generations.
