What are tell-tale signs your roof needs repairing?
- The sounds of water dripping inside your roof
- Water stains appearing on your ceiling
- Build-up of leaves and debris in the gutters and valley irons on your roof.
- Cracked, chipped or broken tiles
- The more obvious one….water dripping onto your floor!!
When it comes to roofing, regular maintenance is the best damage preventative solution and cost effective way to make sure your roof stands the test of time.
Roof tiles are prone to damage and can crack and break for a number of reasons. Storms can cause damage due to hail stones and debris landing on your roof . Roof tiles get broken due to inexperienced trades or from walking on the nose or middle tile.
Blocked Weep Holes
Weep holes are very important when it comes to tiled roofs and can be one of the main reasons for leaks. This is usually the case if the holes are blocked or the tradesmen have forgotten to poke the bedding and point. Water can build-up behind the bedding and drop into the roof causing water stains on your ceilings.
Cracked Bedding and Pointing.
If you can lift your ridge caps with little effort as shown in the photo below then it is time to re-bed and point your roof. Your tiles are prone to damage and overtime cracking occurs causing the ridge collars to break off.
The ridge cap protects your roof by locking down the hips and top course tiles. However as you can see, the ridge caps are just sitting on top and are not held down by the pointing. It would not take much to blow off and expose the roof particularly in the storm season.
If you have small holes appearing on your ceilings, generally this is a good indication that your roof tile clips may be leaking. The only way to stop this leak is to remove and replace the roof tile clips with new wire clips. Cleaning your roof can flush the water channel freeing up some of the dirt however using just this method alone the leaks will only return causing more damage.
Leaking at the roof tile clips has been commonly blamed on “porous tiles” and people get mislead believing that painting their roof will fix the problem. Painting is purely cosmetic and does not water proof your roof. There will always be an underlying cause for the leak
