It is very important when it comes to roofing that you take all necessary precautions against leaks. When a roof starts leaking, not only can this further damage the roof, but it can damage the structure of the entire house. This can lead to very big and costly repairs needing to be done further down the line. Leak Proof offers the very best in terms of providing watertight roofing in Liverpool; we always call out fast and provide a top-quality service to ensure that your roof is as watertight as possible.
What causes a leaking roof?
There are many things that can cause a roof to start leaking, here are a few of the main factors:
- General wear and tear over the years
- Extreme hot and cold weather conditions can cause the materials on the roof to shrink or expand over time, causing a leak
- Loose bricks or mortar falling and damaging the roof below
- Criminal damage
- Water seepage
- Pooling water on the roof
- Damaged or poorly installed flashing
- If the underlay of the roof is damaged
- Condensation in your loft space
- Clogged guttering
- Cracked chimneys
- Poorly installed skylights
If you notice a leak in your roof, call our team of expert roofers in Liverpool to get it fixed as quickly as possible.
Why it’s important to stay watertight
A leaking roof in itself might not seem like a huge issue, but many problems can occur as a result of a leak that are a lot harder to fix and will cost a lot more money, such as:
- Damp on the walls
- Condensation gathering on the windows
- Damaged or rotting timbers
- Encourages mould growth
- Structural damage to the property
This is why it is important to keep up with essential roof maintenance so that you can avoid experiencing a leak and, as a result, all of the problems that can come with a leaking roof. Furthermore, insurance companies will not cover for damages if the roof was poorly maintained, so it is important to have your roof inspected regularly to ensure there is nothing that may cause a leak.
