When your roof gets exposed to rainfall it is doing its job by protecting you and the integrity of the building. However, severe rainfall can sometimes cause cracks which need to be dealt with. You should also look out for blisters, which are trapped pockets of air or moisture that can develop and cause untold damage to your roof. If they do end up rupturing, delicate parts of your roof are left open to even more rain which leads to even more potential damage. If you notice any of these two problems on your roof you could be experiencing water damage already!
If you get your feet wet in a pool of water in your home or building and it isn’t a leaky tap or a overfilling bath, you likely have a leaky roof. This isn’t just a mild inconvenience that can get your socks wet – this is the harbinger of a major problem that needs to be sorted out soon. Water can cause damage to furniture, belongings, appliances or even stock if you are running a business. You might also be risking your safety as the rainwater could get in contact with a building’s electricity supply.
You don’t necessarily need pools of water to ascertain that there is a water leak via your roof; you should also be aware of strange marks or discolouration too. If you see something that you suspect to be moisture coming from somewhere (such as the wall), it could be your roof leaking, so get an expert in to have a look.
Gutters are a vital part of how a roof deals with our rainy Aberdeen weather, so it is very important that you keep them in good nick. Cracked and worn guttering is also both a sign and a cause of a leaking roof so if you notice that your guttering isn’t letting water flow as it usually does – get in touch with an expert.
