Warning Signs Of A Faulty Roof
a sagging roof is a firm sign of a need for immediate action if you are to prevent what is already a concern from becoming a much greater problem. It is an indicator of severe deterioration usually caused by adverse weather or poor maintenance.
Damaged or missing shingles
if shingles are missing or appear to be suffering from wear and tear, it is likely to be water damage that is to blame. Whatever the cause of the issue, our professional roofing contractors in Newcastle can undertake swift and efficient repairs and replacement.
Damage to flashing
the term ‘flashing’ refers to materials such as steel or aluminium that secure the roof joints, and which are vital if your roof is not to leak. Bent, cracked or dented flashing must be repaired as soon as possible to avert any wider property damage.
Ageing roofs can often sustain cracks and splits, which our experts can assess to determine whether they can be repaired or – as in the more extreme instances – an entire roof replacement is necessary.
Leaks or water damage
If you see that water is leaking into your home through walls or ceilings, it is likely to be a missing roof tile or more substantial roof problem that is at fault. Either way, the problem should be tackled as soon as possible to eliminate the risk of further damage.
