We received a request to look into a failing roof in Headingley. The roof was beginning to fail and the tenants had noticed water ingress. We conducted an initial survey and reported our findings back to the client after discussing several options we decided that a full reroof and new guttering was the best option. We were able to work with the tenants over a 4-week period to ensure they could keep their businesses running during the process.
