Roof Leak Detection

Your local roof leak repair experts

A leaking roof may be annoying, but did you know it can lead to some pretty extensive structural damages if it’s not repaired promptly? Even a small roof leak can wreak havoc with your rafters, wall framing, and insulation, and can even lead to wood rot – all of which can be very costly to repair and replace.

A leaky roof can also cause health problems in your home. Mould and mildew can quickly accumulate in the damp roof environment, releasing toxins that can trigger allergic reactions and asthmatic symptoms. If you suspect your roof might have a leak, we highly recommend getting in touch with our leak detection experts to conduct a roof leak repair as soon as possible – for the sake of your home and health.

Signs your roof may have a leak

Wondering how to work out if your roof has a leak? Take a look at the common signs your roof is leaking:

Water dripping from the ceiling

If you find water dripping from your ceiling, you’ve definitely got a leak. This dripping may be accompanied by ceiling sagging, which is usually an indication that water is pooling above the ceiling surface. Water dripping through the ceiling is a sure sign that the issue could be extensive, it’s important that you call a roof leak detection expert without delay to carry out repairs.

Mould on the ceiling

If you have areas of mould growth on the ceilings around your home, it’s often a good sign that there is a leak in your roof (or a burst pipe). Mould thrives in the warm damp environment in the roof space caused by a leak. Aside from being visually unappealing, mould can also cause a number of serious health concerns and is especially hazardous for allergy sufferers or those with respiratory issues. If you notice mould growing on the walls or ceiling, contact our roof leak repair specialists immediately.

Stains on your ceiling and walls

Like mould, stains on your ceilings and walls are clear signs water has worked its way into areas of your home it is not designed to be. Distinct looking stains are always a sign of a leak and pending water damage so it’s important you contact our roofing specialists to carry out leak detections and repairs.

Unpleasant smells

Unpleasant or musty smells can be a result of mould and mildew growth or wet insulation in the roof or walls. If you can’t find the source of the smell, or the odour lasts for a few days (or weeks), especially after rain, it’s worth enlisting the help of a roof leak specialist to see if the roof is the problem.

Curled shingles

Curled or buckled roof shingles can be a sign that moisture is creating issues in the roof. This is usually a result of poor installation or lack of adequate insulation, or it can occur when multiple layers of roofing have been applied. Our roofing team will be able to work out very quickly if your shingles need replacing and if water has travelled any further into your home.

Defective roof flashing

Flashing is the thin material roofers use to direct water away from points in the roof that water can leak into. It’s typically used on corners of the roof, areas where tiles adjoin, and around chimneys. If your roof flashing is warped, broken, or peeling, it leaves your roof vulnerable to moisture and leaks.
