If like most people, your home is your number one asset, it needs to be protected. One way to protect your home – and to add value – is by re-roofing. Here at DCM Roofing our prices are going up from August, so get in now to secure a good deal.


When was the last time you had a good look at your roof? We take it for granted that we’re warm and dry inside our homes this winter, but now is the perfect time for a good check of your roof, so you don’t get any nasty surprises when the winter gets really bad.


Leftover fallen autumn leaves can take up home in your gutters. And that means problems if left alone. The weight of soil and organic matter can clog up your guttering and put pressure on the structure, leading to leaks, corrosion and bowing. Clogged gutters also make nice homes for mice and mould. So don’t let the grass grow under your feet (or in your gutters). Call DCM Roofing to book in our team to clean your properties’ guttering and spouting.


Take a look at your whole roof. When did you last get it re-roofed? And how’s your under-roof insulation looking? It’s easy to ignore, but one day it might not be working, and it’ll start leaking. At that point your roof has your full attention. That’s when you might have no choice but to take action, no matter whether your bank balance is happy about it or not. Start planning now and give us a call to get a quote.


When a potential buyer walks up to your house and sees a roof in poor condition, it’ll send the message that you haven’t looked after other parts of the property as well. Not a good start. And when the conditional purchaser gets a building report done, and it shows a recommended roof repair or replacement, they’ll use that information to negotiate the price down. Whereas if you’ve invested in a new roof, you’ll likely recoup the cost when you sell


My advice as Director at DCM Roofing is always the same: Your home is typically your biggest asset, and you need to look after it. You look after what’s under the lid, so it’s critical to look after the lid itself. If your roof looks tired, now is the ideal time to get it looking fresh again and keeping you safe and dry. And the bonus is that it will increase the value of your home.
