Roof Leak Repair from Watermaster’s Melbourne Plumbers
Has it just become routine that every time there is heavy rain, you automatically head to the laundry, grab the yellow plastic bucket, and strategically place it under a recurring roof leak?
Having to break out the buckets every time it drizzles is more than just an annoyance – leave it for long enough and it can do significant damage to your house too!
Common Causes of Roof Leaks
Finding the exact source of the roof leak can be tricky, as water can enter the roof at one spot but run down to another spot before it seeps through your ceiling. Some roof leaks are relatively easy to spot, while others require further investigation.
Small leaks, too, can be difficult to locate, but when left untreated, can prove to be costly and lead to deterioration of the home.
Common Causes of Roof Leaks Include:
- Blocked gutters
- Broken or missing roof tiles
- Damaged roof underlay
- Water accumulation at your chimney
- Roof panes that aren’t properly sealed
Another common cause of roof leaks include leaking ceiling pipes. This especially problematic for people living in 2-story homes. A leaky ceiling pipe is more than an annoyance – if left alone, they can also result in damage to your ceiling plaster, mould growth and unsightly stains!
Just a few droplets on your ceiling can, over time, lead to the softening of foundations and the collapse of a roof! And don’t forget that water can also makes its way into electrical appliances or systems, putting the entire family at risk.
Periodic plumbing maintenance can help detect these sorts of issues sooner.
