Joined at the Hip: Terrace & Semi-Detached House Roof Repairs Explained

10/8/2018

Terraced and semi-detached properties have their advantages. It’s easier to heat your home, with fewer external-facing walls, for example. However, things can become complicated when it comes to the join between the homes. Over-stretching trees or bushes, poorly maintained garden fences and – of course – too much noise, are all common issues between neighbours. However, arguably the trickiest is the roof. How do you go about having your roof repaired if it could interfere with your neighbour’s property? Keep reading as we discuss the ins and outs of adjoining roofs.

The importance of roof joins

Your roof needs to protect your property from the weather all year round. As well as the main roof covering, this means any joins need to be watertight. It’s no use having a watertight covering if water can seep into both properties through gaps where the two properties meet. To create this watertight join, roofers will need to overlap tiles with those on the adjoining roof. This is the preferred option when using the same kind of roofing material. However, in other cases, the flashing or a bonding gutter can be used to stop water ingress between the two properties.

Getting your neighbour’s permission

Even the smallest break between the two roofs will lead to water ingress and leaks. This will no doubt create more problems for you and your neighbours, with a potential risk to lives if water gets into your electrics. Needless to say, it’s best to tackle the problem head on and talk about any roof repairs or a roof replacement with your neighbours before work begins. Explain the work that needs doing and how your roofers will need to break into their roof to create a watertight join. With their permission, there will be no problems in the future.

Leaks from neighbouring properties

Another issue is that you might find water leaking into your home from your neighbour’s property. This can be complicated as you need to get the owner to admit liability, get the problem fixed and, most importantly, pay for it. The first step is to get a professional inspection. There’s no use creating friction between you and your neighbours if you’re not 100% sure about the problem. In most cases, the leak will be coming from either the roof or their pipes. Arrange a survey from a reputable roofing contractor and plumber to determine the source of the leak.
