What are the First Signs of Roof Leak?

Unfortunately, it’s common for roof leaks to go unnoticed until water is actually observed leaking into the house. This can sometimes mean substantial damage to the structure, depending on how long the water has been allowed to drip.

This can be prevented with regular inspections and, in some cases, a complete roof restoration for older or less maintained buildings.

Some of the common indicators of roof leak include:

  • Water stains in the walls
  • Brown stains or discolouration in the ceiling
  • Damp smells in the roof cavity
  • Mould growth
  • Large bulging bubbles in the paintwork
  • Light streaking through the roof
  • Higher energy bills from deteriorated insulation

Identifying the Source of Your Roof Leak

To effectively reduce the damage of leaking ceiling, it’s crucial to pinpoint the exact cause of water infiltration into your home.

If it is safe to do so, begin by inspecting your roof to confirm if it’s the entry point for rainwater.

Look out for other sources of leakage as well, such as blocked gutters, vermin damage, or complications with your home’s plumbing. Examine the condition of roof tiles and ceiling drywall for any signs of damage.

The Metropolitan Roof Repairs team of experts inspect your roof with advanced leak detection technology to quickly locate, identify and repair the problem, keeping your home safe and secure.

Preparation for Roof Repair in Kew East

Once the source of the leak is identified, prepare the affected area for repair. Clearing the site helps mitigate further damage from roof leaks and facilitates quicker leak detection by our leak repairmen.

Clean up any water pooled under the leak and use buckets to catch ongoing drips. Also, ensure to move or protect furniture and appliances near the leak. For items too cumbersome to move, waterproof plastic covers are a good preventive measure.

When is it time to call on a Leaking Roof Repair Expert in Kew East?
