Roof Leaking in Lower Hutt or Wellington | Watersmith Plumbing and Gas

Rustong roof in Lower Hutt

Is your roof leaking in your Lower Hutt or Wellington home?

Over its life time, your roof is exposed to extreme weather and a huge amount of water, a lot of it corrosive. As your roof expands and contracts, it loosens rubbers and fasteners, opens seams and cracks joints. Besides rusting, this continuing wear is how leaks develop.

If you notice water stains or mould on your ceiling, they may be signs that your roof has developed a leak.

A leaking roof can start off as a small problem, but can quickly turn into a big one! Persistent leaks can cause a number of of issues such as mold, rotted framing, damaged insulation and damaged ceilings.

In order to avoid subsequent damage and costly repairs, you should always act quickly when a roof leak appears. Tracking down the leak is the tricky part and that’s where you need an experienced plumber.

Once a roof hits 20 years of age, it’s a likely candidate for re-roofing. The right metal roof correctly installed and well maintained can last up to 30 years, but one not tended to will fail much earlier.
