heavy rainfall in Melbourne causing roof leaks

Fixing roof leaks early

While the fixing of roof leaks is an essential service and can be completed now, you might still think of putting it off for a few weeks. But before you do, consider the damage you could be doing to your home.

While some roof leaks may cause minor damage in the short-term, any roof leak can become a major issue if left unfixed. This may include requiring the relatively minor job of replacing a section of your ceiling or wall that has been rain damaged, right up to a roof collapsing due to structural damage. Roof leaks can even cause electrical faults, which can be deadly as well as financially crippling.

So our advice is to get a roof leak fixed as soon as you notice it. At this stage it is often a simple issue that can be fixed quickly and inexpensively.
