What to do in case of a roof leakage?

In case of suspected roof leakage, it is important to take action as soon as possible. We advise you to regularly have a roof inspection done to prevent leakage and damage in the future. If your roof or gutter is leaking, take pictures and videos of any damage so that you can report it to your insurer.

Make sure your furniture and floors remain safe by moving your furniture and placing a bucket under the leak. If it is raining heavily, place a tarpaulin over the leak until we arrive to repair the leak in your roof.

How does a roof leak occur?

Often, you only discover a roof leak after it has already caused some damage. This is, of course, very annoying, but it is helpful to know what caused the roof leak in order to prevent a future one. A roof leak can have various causes. We have listed the biggest causes for you:

  • Loose or broken ridge tiles that need to be replaced;
  • Bird nests; therefore, provide bird repellent;
  • Aging or worn-out bitumen roofing;
  • Leakage at your chimney;
  • Leakage at your extension;
  • Poor drainage of rainwater on a flat roof;
  • Clogged or damaged gutters;
  • Roof flashing that should have been replaced;
  • A leak at your neighbor's house;
  • Incorrect connection of the rainwater pipe;
  • Loose battens and broken or shifted tiles.

  • Allergy formation;
  • Wood rot at a moisture percentage of above 25%;
  • Moisture spots;
  • Musty odor in the house.

Prevent roof leakage

Make sure your roof remains in perfect condition and prevent a (next) roof leak. You can make a huge contribution to this yourself by keeping your roof well-maintained.

How can you do this? We give some tips:

1. Maintain the roof surface and gutters

Dirt and leaves accumulate in your gutter, causing a blockage. This can start to leak or wear out. By having the gutter and roof surface cleaned once a year, you significantly reduce the risk of a roof leak.

2. Hire a roofer for minor damage

Even if there is minimal damage, it is crucial to take preventive action.

By having this damage repaired, you can prevent a lot of trouble later on.

3. Have the roof flashing checked

If there is roof flashing on your roof, you can have it checked for water resistance. This should fit well.

4. Watch out for signals of a leaky roof

Keep an eye out for signs of damage to the roof. Think of one or more moisture spots or mold on the walls. These are indications that there may be something wrong with the roof.

5. Have a roof inspection performed annually.

To truly take preventative measures, have your roof thoroughly inspected once a year by an experienced and reliable roofer. This way, you can tackle issues such as mold or moisture spots in advance.

6. Don't wait too long and prevent worse.
