“There’s a leak in my roof!”
Words we often hear as professional plumbers! We’re Not Going To Sugar Coat It – A Leak In Your Roof Is Not The Best.

Water will find a way in through any compromised spots in your roof and create a leak in your roof. This can wreak havoc on your ceilings and walls, furnishings, appliances and (if it’s been left a while) can compromise your home’s structural integrity.

Even a small, consistent water leak, over time, will create significant damage. Plus the longer the leak is left, the more you increase the risk of mold, wood rot and termites.

So if you have a known leak, the time to deal with it is NOW.

How Does A Leak In My Roof Start?

  • Rust on your tin roof.
  • Mortar crumbling in between roof tiles.
  • The ‘flashing’ on your roof is faulty or broken.
  • Poor conditions, broken or full gutters.
  • Poor installation of chimneys or sky lights, creating cracks.
  • Collected condensation within your attic space.
  • A heavy storm breaking down a section of your roof.

How Do I Fix A Leak In My Roof?

You can search roof plumber near me. or You call a professional, local plumber and we inspect your home, investigate the cause of the leak, the extent of the damage and provide solutions to fix it for you.

Is A Leak A Sign Of A Massive Problem?

Yes, and no. Most of the time, a leak in your roof can be spot repaired and once the source of the leak is discovered it can be fixed easily, without a whole-roof repair. However, the longer a leak is left, the more time it has to wreak havoc on your home’s interior and structure.

Also, some leaks have been dripping for a long time before they start to cause noticeable damage, so the sooner you are able to call a local plumber to investigate, the better.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
