A leaking roof if left unrepaired can lead to serious structural damage.
Signs of leaks include internal water entry, wet insulation, ceiling stains or mould. If roof leaks are not repaired quickly, they can lead to widespread damage to walls, fittings, furniture and your
house structure. Severe damage can be reduced if roof repairs and maintenance are carried out when needed - before it is too late!
Common roof leaks are a result of:
- Cracks in ridge capping
- Broken roof tiles
- Rusted screws or roof sheets
- Poorly installed or sealed flashing
- Leaf litter build-up in gutters and valleys
Here is a job we attended at Elanora recently, where we found approx 16 x broken roof tiles and a broken barge cap, as well as leaf litter buildup in the valleys and guttering. These are obvious issues that you don't need to be a roofer to see! Broken tiles and leaf filled valleys are some of the most common causes of roof leaks - with water then backflowing under the roof tiles and straight into your roof cavity.
