Leaking Roof?

A lot of people are guilty of taking the roof above us for granted, it’s not something we think about until it starts leaking or stops working. And when your roof is leaking, you can’t ignore it or put it off for another day. The simple fact of the matter is, by the time your roof is actually leaking, the problems around your home may already be a serious issue. A leak can be present for quite a long time before presenting as moisture on your ceiling or walls. The leak can cause all sorts of nasty things for you including damaged ceilings, water stains, rot , mould and structural damage just to name a few. Leaving a problem and hoping it will go away will only cause a more expensive “fix” in the long run, it can also cause internal damage to your home.
