How to Deal with Common Roofing Problems
Your roof is a pretty important part of your home so it makes sense that you want to keep it in good repair.
A new roof can be very costly so taking good care of yours helps ensure that it will last for many years.
If you need roofing on the Gold Coast, you need the experts here at Allcoast Roofing.
We can help you maintain your existing roof and help you decide when it’s time to get a new one.
Here are some common roofing problems and what you can do about them.
Of course, we stand by our roofing installation, but if yours was poorly installed, it’s best to address the problem as soon as it is noticed to be sure it doesn’t become a bigger issue.
In some cases, we can make repairs, but in other instances, you may be better off getting a new roof.
We can take a look at what you have and help you decide what your best option is.
One of the biggest issues we encounter is roofs that aren’t taken care of properly.
We can certainly help, but it’s up to you to check the roof often and let us know if you there are any issues that need resolving.
Check for broken shingles, damaged gutters, evidence of leaks, and other damage that can hinder the effectiveness of your roof.
Caught early, you can save yourself the price of costly repairs by taking care of things right away.
Leaky roofs are not uncommon. Sometimes it’s an easy fix while other times you may need to replace the whole thing.
Evidence of a leak includes visible water coming from the roof, water stains, mould and mildew anywhere in your home, but generally near the roof itself.
You can see evidence of a leak either inside or outside your home, sometimes both. If you suspect you have a leak, call us right away so it doesn’t get worse.
One of the most common roofing problems is gutters that aren’t clean. It’s important to clear your gutters often to allow proper water flow during a storm.
Failure to do so can lead to water damage to your home, a roof leak and other problems.
Taking care of your roof means also taking care of your gutters so be sure you’re doing so on a regular basis.

What Causes a Leak?
From cracked flashing (those thin, weatherproofed pieces of metal that are designed to keep water out) to broken shingles, tiles or slate there are nearly as many causes as there are roofs.
What are the Signs of a Leak?
Most commonly, roof leaks have a tendency to occur: Near the chimney Under damaged shingles At flashing points Around gutters At skylights Close to vents and pipes In low spots or valleys If you see signs of a leak, including discolored ceilings or damp walls, contact AllCoast Roofing for an inspection from our commercial roof repair specialists.
What Happens When Water Pooles on a Flat Roof?
Those little slopes will allow the water to run off, keeping your roof free from water damage.
What is Ponding?
Ponding, in a roofing sense, refers to the ‘pooling up’ of water in a specific spot on the roof.
What is Blistering?
Blistering refers to surface erosion on the roof, specifically when bubbles form due to improperly installed or maintained roofing.
Why Call a Commercial Roofer?
In most cases, it’s best not to fix the problem yourself.
