Roof Leak Detection and Repair

Warning signs of a leaking roof

Roof leaks, which allow water into the building cavity beneath the roof, are a serious threat to any structure. The results of a water leak entering your roof cavity can include damage to gyprock sheeting, your homes structure, electrical components and other parts of your home, as well as blossoming mould and rising damp making life extremely uncomfortable and potentially unhealthy for residents. For these reasons we recommend that if there is any lapse in the ability of your roof to keep your home warm and dry, don't hesitate to contact Newcastle Roofing Professionals for a free assessment, leak detection and any required emergency roof leak repairs.

Leaking Roof

Signs of a potential roof leak include:

  • Dark spots on the ceiling - caused by water pooling or collecting on the opposite side of the surface, the formation of dark spots is a definite sign of a leaking roof.

  • Softened or bloated fixtures and wooden surfaces - caused by water permeating absorbent materials, resulting in them swelling and eventually rotting.

  • Unpleasant odours - introduced into the building by the presence of mould, fungal spores and rotting material.

  • Water collecting on floors, running down walls and intruding into the building interior - caused by major leaks, water incursion presents a threat to the surfaces and materials of the interior of the home, presents a direct hazard to the residents, and is a major electrical danger.

  • Failing insulation - saturated insulation simply doesn't insulate. Due to the nature of most insulation materials they are easily able to become waterlogged when installed beneath a leaking roof, resulting in their failure to maintain the temperature of your home, as well as encouraging the growth of mould and fungus, storing moisture for the long term in your roof cavity and exposing the interior of your structure to unnecessary strain on accout of their waterlogged weight.

  • Shorts / Electrical faults - the result of leaking water in the roof cavity or walls short circuiting the wiring and electrical components of the house. This can result in blackouts, blown fuses, fire, damage to appliances, light fittings and devices as well as the home electrical system, and represents a significant risk of injury to residents.
