Roof Leak Repairs

Roof leaks are a common problem for homeowners. Have you noticed water leaking from the ceiling? Perhaps you’ve seen a few new spots and stains on the ceiling as you lay in bed at night. Whether you’ve noticed water stains or seen water dripping It’s important to contact a roof repair professional immediately to get the issue fixed.

What Causes a Roof to Leak?

There are many things that can cause a roof to leak, with the most common being:

  • Broken tiles
  • Blocked gutters
  • Anchor points not sealed
  • Dislodged or cracked capping
  • Dislodged tiles

The most common reason is broken tiles, and this happens mostly through the changes in weather, although walking on the roof and children’s toys hitting weak tiles can also cause damage.

Check for Signs of a Leak

Roof leaks can be very damaging and can even lead to structural failure. The main signs of a roof leak include:

  • Peeling paint
  • Moisture marks
  • Brown, grey or yellowing stains
  • Mould
  • Water stains
  • Damp beams

Sometimes it isn’t as simple as looking for a wet patch on the ceiling. Some leaks can take a long time before they cause damage to the ceiling, and there are many times where the water stains you see on the ceiling are nowhere near where the leak is actually occurring. Quite often, water will run along insulation before it soaks through.

You should organise for a regular inspection of your roof and gutter, however, it is also a good idea to regularly look at your roof and see if there are any visible damaged tiles. This may be chipped tiles or even ones that have moved out of place in a storm.

Contact Your Insurance Company

If you’ve noticed a leak in your roof that looks fairly significant, it is best to first organise a roof inspection. A reputable roofing company will be able to advise you of whether your leak is a major issue or a simple fix, as well as tell you whether it has leaked onto and damaged your roof beams.

Armed with this information, if your roof leak is significant, it is worth contacting your home insurance company to see if roof leaks are covered under your insurance policy.

Can a Roof Leak Be Repaired?

In most cases, yes – but sometimes it might require some careful planning and work. First of all, the source of the leak needs to be determined. Is it coming from the roof itself? From underneath the roof? From somewhere else on the building? Once the professionals have identified where the leak is, they can formulate a plan for repair.
