LEAKING ROOF REPAIRS
Worried you might have a leaking roof requiring repairs? Here are some key warning signs you have a roof leak which requires attention sooner rather than later!
Signs You Have a Leaking Roof
- Water dripping from the roof
The first sign us usually the one ringing alarm bells, there is water dripping from the roof. Unfortunately when it gets to that stage damage may have already occurred. If you are using a bucket to catch the water it’s serious! Definitely call today.
- Watermarks on the roof
Another alert. We once had a customer with a plaster roof who let the watermark get bigger and bigger, until one night the pressure became too much, the plaster cracked and the water came gushing in. Never let it get to this stage.
- Stains or spots on the roof
Any pooling of spots or stains, generally a yellowy brown colour, are a strong indication there is a leak. Again, you need a roofer asap.
- Missing roof tiles
Whilst the leaking may not have started just yet, broken or missing roof tiles are very likely to cause leaks. We offer a free inspection, take advantage of this and let us check your roof.
- Sagging of the roof
Wet plaster will sag. Any sign of a sagging roof is a strong indicator of a leak.
Why You Must Act Now
Did you tick any of the above signs? Our advice is you next step be to call us. There are a number of reasons you need to act now and take your leaking roof seriously.
Not many people are aware of this, however if your roof has existing damage prior to anything major occurring, your insurance company may very well not cover you for the damage. In the case of our customer with the burst plaster, there was a roof leak for over 6 months before the eruption. The repair bill came to over $3000, and they weren’t covered.
A roof leak will not go away by itself. It won’t heal. You need to hire a professional roofer to fix the leak (for a minimal fee) before there is major structural damage costing you a small fortune to repair.
Water Causes Rot
That’s right, water causes rot, alongside mould, algae and damp. As mentioned above, a leaking roof will not heal itself, and the cost to replace wooden beams, plaster and roofing is a lot pricier than fixing a small leak.
