Traditional Rooftop Moss Removal

  Moss readily grows on roof shingles, especially in the spaces between shingles where the spores collect. In wet climates (Which Scotland has much of), moss commonly grows into a mat that can be as much as a few inches thick. Moss growth is usually greatest on north-facing roofs, roof areas shaded by trees and other places that are not exposed to enough sun to dry out. Once established, it acts like a sponge, soaking up and storing rainwater. Some of that water then wicks up under the shingles through capillary action and soaks into and through the roof underlayment, [...]

uPVC Doors in Glasgow There’s a variety of reasons that you may be looking for uPVC doors in Glasgow.

Guttering in Edinburgh

Guttering in Edinburgh It’s known as the windy city – uPVC guttering in Edinburgh has a lot blown at it. In fact, it’s a problem common across Scotland, thanks to our bracing climate. Guttering plays an important role in home maintenance, protecting our home against the effects of rainfall and other elemental problems. Its main role is sluicing water off the roof and down the drain and safely into the sewers. However, moss and leaves can end up in there and will eventually block your gutters and drains if they aren’t cleaned regularly. If left unchecked, your guttering can become [...]

Conservatory Roof Conversion

Conservatory Roof Conversion is Vital You might be wondering what a conservatory roof conversion is supposed to do. When it comes to conservatories, people often think of them as rooms only fit for use in the summer. Conservatories in Aberdeen, anyone? This might be due to the fact that it’s expected for conservatories to be difficult to heat and therefore too cold for regular use during winter. This is actually because the materials generally used in the construction of conservatory roofs have poor insulation properties. Poor insulation means the heat escapes much quicker, making them really difficult to keep warm [...]
