Across the West End of Glasgow, Balmore have been providing reliable and proven roof repairs, maintenance and new roof fittings for over thirty five years.
From red sandstone tenement flats in Hyndland to the older ‘tobacco lord’ blonde sandstone homes of Kelvinside; the West End is filled with history. And amongst these historic buildings there are new build townhouses and apartment blocks. We have provided roofing services for them all.
And in those last three plus decades, we have continually grown, expanded and strengthened our range of roofing services and our team to ensure that we can always offer our Glasgow West End customers the very best roofing services.

How often should I call a roofer out to inspect my roof?
In an ideal world, your roof should be checked over at least twice a year during normal weather conditions. However, after a significant storm involving high winds (something that Glasgow suffers from all too often), we always advise that home owners with older slate roofs have theirs inspected by a professional roofer to look for any dislodged slates that have been blown away through the high winds.
While this may seem excessive, when you consider that your entire home is protected by your roof and the weather in Glasgow is general more rain than sun, making sure that there are none of the common problems below is vital:
- Slipped Slates
- Broken Tiles
- Ridge Damage
- Hip Damage
- Cracked Lead Flashing
- Pointing around Chimneys
- Blocked Gutters
- Flat Roof Repairs
Easier access for cheaper roof repairs
On older sandstone properties, roof access can prove difficult for traditional methods of accessing a roof, including scaffolding. That is where our rope access team comes in.
Our team of roofers can handle rope access specialist roofing where we do not require scaffolding. It allows us to easily access the difficult access spots of older properties safely and quickly. This is of particular benefit for properties that have a garage built right next to the main property that would usually require extra scaffolding for roof repair work.
As a Glasgow based roofer, we are proud not just of our past, but our future. With a team of fully trained and qualified roofers backed up by decades of experience, it is little wonder how we have grown to become one of the leading Roofers in Glasgow.
