What is a Roof Survey?


If safe, our surveyors can visually inspect your roof to assess its condition. For hard to access or dangerous areas, we’ll use specialist pole cams to survey your roof and all its components.

In short, a roof inspection gives you an accurate estimate of:

  • The roof’s potential lifespan

  • Whether it would be more cost-effective to repair or replace the roof

  • The overall condition of the roof as well as components such as gutters and chimneys


Roof Surveys for Insurance Purposes

Should you need to claim on your insurance to pay for roof repairs, you’ll be required to provide your insurer with an independent survey report detailing the damage and required works. While we compile your report, we can take photographs and create a detailed account of what caused the damage to help ensure your provider lives up to its obligations.

Roof Inspections for Planned Works

In most cases, it’s your freeholder’s responsibility to keep your roof in top condition. If your roof is leaking, we can assess the cause and extent of the damage to create a detailed report for you to pass on to your landlord. If your landlord refuses to repair the damage, you can use your roof survey report to take legal action.

Roof Surveys for Leaseholders

In most cases, it’s your freeholder’s responsibility to keep your roof in top condition. If your roof is leaking, we can assess the cause and extent of the damage to create a detailed report for you to pass on to your landlord. If your landlord refuses to repair the damage, you can use your roof survey report to take legal action.

I highly recommend David. Very good technical knowledge. He was always available for our questions, which included a detailed call on the same day as the survey. The written survey report was clear, detailed and included pictures and estimates of the cost of repairs.

We had two homebuyers surveys conducted by James. He was extremely knowledgeable, transparent and went the extra mile to inform my girlfriend and I of the results of each survey. Would highly recommend.

David gave us a fantastic service and has been a huge help during our property purchase process. We have had 2 surveys carried out, both of which were arranged very promptly. Thorough and extremely useful telephone calls and full written reports were received shortly afterwards. David's reports and advice have been invaluable to us.
