Lack of maintenance can result in major problems including premature degrading of the roof covering, dampness, leaks and may even invalidate the roof covering guarantee. When the condition of a roof is ignored, it can be expected to fail before it reaches half its design life. Acclaim Contracts Roof Care and Maintenance Service offers a comprehensive planned maintenance programme where small defects can be detected and repaired before they turn into major failures.
