In South East Queensland, the arrival of summer not only brings warmer weather but also the onset of seasonal storms. These powerful storms can test the resilience of any home, particularly the roof. At KWR Roofing, we understand that a leak during these tumultuous times can be particularly distressing. As SEQ’s trusted roofing experts, we’re here to guide you through managing roof leaks, ensuring your home remains safe and dry despite the challenging weather conditions.
Steps 1: Contain the Leak
* Collect the Water: Place a bucket or a large container under the leak to catch the water. This helps prevent water damage to your floors and furnishings.
* Relieve Water Pressure: If you notice a bulging water spot on your ceiling, carefully puncture it with a screwdriver to release the water. This alleviates pressure, controls the flow and helps mitigate further ceiling damage.
Step 2: Assess the Damage
* Inspect the Leak: If safe, try to identify the source of the leak. Sometimes, it’s as simple as a missing shingle or a small hole.
* Document for Insurance: Take photos of the leak and any damage for insurance purposes.
Step 3: Temporary Fixes
* Apply Roofing Tape: For minor leaks, roofing tape can be a temporary solution.
* Use a Tarp: Covering the affected area with a waterproof tarp can prevent further water ingress until professional help arrives.
Step 4: Call the Professionals
