Leaking Roofs

When you discover evidence of a leaking roof, it is time to call Hudson Roofing, the friendly Melbourne professionals with over 10 years of experience in domestic and commercial roofing.

There are many reasons why a roof leaks and it’s best to repair a leak early to avoid costly repairs down the track. If you’ve discovered a leak in your roof, it’s time to call the respected professionals. Hudson Roofing are experts in all types of roof leak repairs and service all areas in and around Melbourne with prompt, reliable servicing and repairs on all residential, domestic and commercial properties.

A leaking roof is a serious problem

By the time you discover evidence of a leaking roof, the problem requires professional attention. It does not take much for water to find a way under cement or terracotta tiles even if there are no obvious breaks or dislodged pieces. A professional roof repair contractor should examine the entire roof and look for telltale signs around the whole roof, not just the area where the leak has occurred. As part of every repair job, Hudson Roofing will inspect:

  • Ridge and hip caps
  • Flashing, gaskets and boots
  • Tiled, iron or pointed valleys
  • Drainage channels in individual tiles
  • Gutters and downpipes
  • Vents, pipes and roof lights
  • Solar panels and water heating systems
  • Dormers

After the source of a roof leak is discovered, it is also important to examine the beams, eaves, sarking and any felt or underlayment to determine if there is serious damage that needs to be addressed as these areas can manifest as problems months or even years later.

At Hudson Roofing, we take every measure to completely resolve your leaking roof problems. We recognize that roof leak repairs can become very costly and do everything possible to provide you with the most effective service for the best overall price. You will receive a complete assessment of our findings and, if appropriate, several options for the most suitable repair so you can make an informed decision that best suits your budget.

Roof leak repairs

Sometimes, the exact source of a roof leak is hard to pinpoint. After a visual inspection of the roof surface is complete, it is often necessary to remove tiles and look at the felt, sarking, sub-layers or other internal structures. Where water is found inside the home is not always directly related to the entry spot since the water can be driven by wind, flows downhill or follows pipes or wiring before dripping onto a surface. From that point, it can still follow a path before becoming exposed on a ceiling or in wall boards.

Once the true extent of the situation is revealed, appropriate roof leak repairs can take place. Depending on the age of the roof or obvious causes for damage, roof leaks can be remedied simply or may require more extensive attention.

Problems with older roofs

Many Federation era homes in and around Melbourne have their original roof and require an expert who knows the unique problems these older roofs present, such as:

  • Felt or other sub-layer may be dry and brittle and no longer perform its function of sealing the roof under the tiles.
  • Earlier repairs may not have been performed correctly and are the cause of leaks.
  • Roof tiles and caps may have shrunk, cracked or are missing mortar and need to be re-bedded or re-pointed.
  • Flashing, boots and other seals may be deteriorated.
  • Beams, joists and other supporting timbers may be rotten.

At Hudson Roofing, all our tradesmen are fully qualified experts and are licensed and insured. All our repair work is backed by a 10 year guarantee on workmanship so you’ll have peace of mind the job will be done right the first time, every time.
