Good house maintenance could provide a simple answer to reducing monthly outgoings says Ratedpeople.com, the UK’s largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen.

As electricity prices continue to rise, one of the first ports of call for thrifty home owners is to find ways of reducing the bills - turning down the radiators and switching off the lights for example. But, it might also be worth checking whether your roof is damaged as that’s where 15% of all household heat is lost.

By using recommended roofers, home owners have the potential to significantly reduce their monthly bills through fixing and properly insulating a leaky roof and thereby preventing long-term damage to the structure of the property. If left unrepaired, condensation and damp could run into the interior walls during poor weather causing costly damage.

Damp brown discoloured patches on dry walls and ceilings are a sign that a home could already be affected by these issues. However, the problem can be easily solved by employing a specialist tradesman to identify and fix the leak and then by using recommended decorators and recommended plasterers to rectify any damage caused.

Ottokar Rosenberger, Sales and Marketing Director of Ratedpeople.com, commented: “Some home owners won’t consider checking the state of their roof when looking to cut down monthly spend. However, it’s something that they should consider getting looked at by a professional in preparation for the winter months as it’s a simple way to avoid huge heating bills.”
