Spotting a roof leak
Noticing that you have a roof leak can be the hardest part of roofing maintenance, as leaks are often slow, and can cause a lot of damage before you would normally notice a problem.
To spot small leaks before they turn into a big problem, it's a good idea to inspect your roof at least once a year (or twice a year if possible).
Carefully use a ladder to get a look at the roof - but do not walk on the surface, as this can damage your roofing and be unsafe. Use binoculars to examine the roof. Checking a roof in Peterborough during the winter can be dangerous – so take extra care.
Parts of a roof likely to break
The parts of a roof in Peterborough most likely to need repair are flashing (e.g. around any chimneys or pipes) - look for any bits of felt with cracks or curled edges.
Also look for any cracked or damaged roofing shingles. Extreme weather and ice can cause cracked tiles which can leave large parts of the roof exposed to the felt underneath.
Look for any discoloured patches of roofing, for example any black or green areas; this may be algae which can eat away at the roof.
If your roof is more than a few years old, check the loft or attic ceiling (and rafters) for damp patches after a storm or period of heavy snow.
Roofing repairs are cheaper earlier
Spotting roofing leaks and knowing when repairs are needed can be challenging, though most home owners will manage it. However, doing the actual work is usually only possible by a qualified roofer.
Leaving a roof leak unfixed can result in damp walls, mould in the loft, and at worse, structural damage to the roof itself.
Call us on and have your roof inspected to avoid unnecessarily expensive repairs in the future.
