The Truth About Leaks from Burnley Roofers
At Absolute Roofing – we are a family business who care about our customers – that’s why we don’t only want to be the ones to fix your roofing problems, we want to help you to avoid developing problems with your roof!
Our goal is to secure your first line of defence regarding the elements. Water, in any of its forms whether that is rain, snow or hail, can be extremely destructive to your roofing, whether you’re in Burnley, Clitheroe or across the country. It is our goal to not only install roofs that will stand up to the wear and tear that the weather brings year after year, but to also advise you of the best way of determining problems with your roof – so that you can avoid emergency call outs from our Accrington Roofing team.
While it is often the case that many roofs leaks are simple to repair, determining the source of the leak can be a much more difficult task. When customers identify a drip in their ceiling, they often assume that the leak is originating from directly above the point of the leak, however, a leak can be traveling down a rafter or can even be the accumulation of condensation. For example, it is common for plumbing leaks to be misdiagnosed as roof leaks. They can be tricky – although less so for our fantastic Accrington Roofing experts!
Accrington Roofing to the rescue!
Roof leaks can be caused by any number of things. It’s a good habit to become familiar with your roofing system, so that you are in a better position to diagnose the cause of any potential leaks. Not only can this provide vital information for our Burnley Roofers if you need to get in touch, but it can also give you a greater chance of avoiding leaks in the future! Here are a few of the main sources of roof leaks:
Missing, cracked or loose tiles or roofing slates
Inadequate attic ventilation, which can cause moisture through a build up of condensation
The surrounding or flashing of the chimney area
Accumulating water on flat or concave areas of the roofing
Skylight surroundings (flashings)
Wind driven rain
Built up debris, which can trap moisture and accelerate deterioration
