Signs of Roof Problems 

A properly maintained roof is an important part of any building, whether a residential home or a commercial building. The basic function of the roof is provide protection from the elements but if well maintained it can also assist with insulation, energy efficiency, aesthetic appeal and can help boost your properties value. 
In many cases a problem with your roof can be hidden from sight and build up over time causing further damage. Even something that appears to be minor cosmetic damage has the potential to cause problems in the future.  
If you notice any of the following, it is time to call in a professional roofing company to inspect your roof
 
Tiles or slates that are missing or appear out of line 
Lead flashing around chimneys or against walls missing or damaged 
Plastic verge trim, fascia boards or barge boards that appear damaged, worn or rotten 
Cracked or missing mortar along verges or around ridge tiles 
Dark stains on ceilings or at the top of walls 
Water dripping down walls during or after rainfall, especially on chimney breasts or bay windows 
Wet or damp loft insulation 
A musty or damp smell in the attic 

COMMON CAUSES OF ROOF LEAKS 

 

Some of the common causes are: 
Broken, cracked or missing tiles / slates 
 
Failing or damaged flashing against chimneys and/or adjoining walls 
 
Deteriorated or damaged mortar 
 
Failing or damaged lining to valleys, box gutters and flat roofing areas 
 
Clogged or damaged gutters preventing water draining away 

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR ROOF IS LEAKING 

 
Contain the leak - If you have visible water drips coming through the roof in the loft, or through a ceiling, try to place a container or bucket to catch the water. Stopping the water spreading is the most effective way of reducing the damage caused. 
 
Control the damp - Keep the area well ventilated and consider using a dehumidifier to help it dry. Clean mould as it appears to help stop the spread. Remember that mould spores can be a health hazard so wear rubber gloves and a face mask. 
 
Clear the area - Try to move personal belongings away from the area of a leak. Do not touch or use electrical equipment that is wet. If you cannot move your belongings, consider covering them in plastic sheeting. 
 
Stay safe - DO NOT attempt to repair the leak yourself. Climbing onto a roof is extremely dangerous. Our teams are highly trained and skilled at working at heights and will take all appropriate measures to ensure the work is carried out safely. 
 
Get it fixed - A leaking roof does not get better with time. Even a small leak will cause significant damage if left unattended. If you have any concerns about your roof leaking call us on 01452 526680 for a professional repair.
