Roofing Refurbishment on Student Accommodation

Student Accommodation

 The team at DPR are quite a multiskilled lot. We like to employ engineers who are capable at a few trades. We find wide reaching experience always seems to make them better roofers, and we relish the chance to get them on the team.

Occasionally though we have the opportunity to employ their wide reaching skills on none-roofing jobs. Which happened recently with a client in Wakefield.

They contacted us as they needed a roofing refurbishment on what will be a student and training accommodation. But, along with this they also needed a large number of velux windows installing. In usual circumstances they would have had to approach two separate contractors to carry out the work, one for the roof, one for the windows. But due to the wide ranging skills of all our engineers we were able to oblige this particular client, and take care of both jobs ourselves.

They also needed a lot of smoke vents fitting, which we just took in our stride.

By doing so we are saving the client time, effort and more importantly, expense. Work on the site is ongoing, and we will report back once the job is done.

DPR Roofing have been repairing and installing roofs all over the Yorkshire area, which includes Wakefield, for nearly 30 years. During this time we have carried out a simply vast number of jobs for commercial clients. We have learned that there is no job too big, small, complex or simple for us.

To find out how we can help you just give us a call on 0113 335 0043.

Freehold Vs Leasehold Roof Repairs: Who Pays for What?


As a leaseholder or freeholder, you may be unsure about your responsibility when it comes to paying for maintenance and repairs. This is particularly important when it comes to roof repairs, which are crucial to keep the property inhabitable and prevent further damage. Read on as we explore freehold and leasehold roof repairs and ask the question: who pays for what?

The role of freeholders and leaseholders

Leaseholders have the right to live in a property for a set amount of time, set out in their lease. On the other hand, as outright owners of the property, freeholders are usually responsible for arranging repairs and maintenance of a building’s exterior and any communal areas. Unfortunately for leaseholders, this doesn’t necessarily make freeholders responsible for the cost of these repairs.

Check your lease

It’s quite common for leaseholders to pay into a reserve fund for maintenance and repairs each month. This is usually the case for large blocks of flats, as it can be complicated trying to arrange payment from several different parties for one-off costs. However, you only have to do so if it’s agreed in your lease. The same is true for extra costs for one-off repairs. Your lease will outline who is responsible for the cost of repairs to the property, and what proportion of the cost is covered by you. It may be that the reserve fund is just for general maintenance and doesn’t cover large repairs.

Freehold roof repairs

Whoever is responsible for payment, it’s in everyone’s interest to get roof repairs done quickly and to the highest standards.

Whether it’s a one-off repair, a full roof replacement or ongoing inspections and maintenance, we will deliver a long-lasting solution that keeps your property protected from the elements and minimises work needed in the future.
