There’s no worse feeling than looking up at your ceiling and seeing droplets of water forming during a rainstorm.
For thousands of home owners, a leaking roof is an unpleasant part of every rainy season and often results in expensive and unplanned repairs.
Fortunately, the right roof insulation and waterproofing system can protect your home from roof leaks and water damage – if you act in time.
Isn’t my roof already waterproofed?
Many of us assume that our roof is fully waterproofed and leak-free just because our home passed an inspection before we bought it. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
Waterproofing and insulation materials decay over time, usually due to exposure to the sun. For this reason, it’s wise to have your roof inspected every year so that maintenance can be carried out before a leak develops.
Does a flat roof need more maintenance than a pitched roof?
All roof types require routine maintenance – but if your home has a flat roof or concrete slab, it’s crucial to have it checked every year.
Unlike a pitched roof, with its V-shape that encourages water to flow down the sides, a flat roof is the perfect place for water to collect – especially if your gutters aren’t cleaned regularly.
Water can seep through slabs that are badly insulated and cause serious structural damage over time, putting your safety at risk if large cracks develop.
