Protect Your Investment And Stay Leak Free

Are you trying to determine roof leak repairs Adelaide? There are many things you can do to find the cause of the problem and we are discussing the top 5 reasons that will help you determine if your roof needs repair work. 

  • Fasteners & Tiles:  Roof tiles can get damaged, and fasteners can be loosened or dislodged creating space for water to make its way inside your roof. Storms, heavy rain, or fallen branches from trees can damage roofs creating leaks. 
  • Poor Roof Installation or Repair Work: If your roof has been poorly installed it can be the biggest reason for a leaky roof and subsequent water damage. When choosing a new roof or getting a roof replacement it is important to consider all the factors such as quality of the materials, installation process, and services of a highly qualified professional roofing contractor, who is experienced with the type of roof you want. 
  • Age of the Roof: This can be a major contributing factor to a leaky roof. Most homeowners completely forget about the roof and do not invest in regular maintenance. Over time, harsh weather, natural elements and storm damage can compromise the integrity of a roof causing cracks contributing to a leaky roof. 
  • Chimneys & Skylights: If installed improperly or not sealed right, skylights and chimneys can cause big damage. If there is any pooling of water around these roof accessories then it can most definitely lead to leaking and water damage. 
  • Clogged Gutters: Do you have clogged gutters? When was the last time you cleaned your gutters? Believe it or not, clogged gutters can do more damage than expected. If the gutters are too congested and filled with fallen leaves, debris or other foreign materials, the water won’t flow easily and keep collecting leading to leaks and water damage.
