New Roof Care Service Launched

Acclaim Contracts have launched their new Roof Care and Maintenance Service. Prevention is not only better but far cheaper than the cure! 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
