Roof Leak Repairs on the Gold Coast
When it comes to getting roof leaks fixed properly the first time, there are 3 basic things you want to keep in mind. If you're considering fixing a roof leak yourself, just remember that there's no substitute for experience. In the long run, it's much cheaper to have a professional look at your roof.
With that said, here's the three things to remember when getting your roof leak sorted out:
It starts with a thorough inspection of the roof, both internally & externally. Detecting the actual cause of the leak means more than looking for a broken tile, you may actually need to perform a water test.
This may involve having someone inside the roof and another outside, putting a small amount of water onto the roof surface and tracking it internally. Water flows in tricky ways so observing the roof while it's affected by water is often the only sure fire way to confirm the source of any roof leaks you may have.
Once you know where the leak is coming from, now you need to choose the right solution to rectify the leak. Is it a simple silicone fix? Or does the area need to be stripped of tiles and re-sarked? This is where a good inspection will tell you what course of action you should take.
If you're a bit handy and are considering doing it yourself, be careful. Do you really want to be getting onto your again after the next storm or worse - during the storm? Sometimes it's best to leave it to the professionals.
Our Leak Repair Reviews
Absolutely stoked with Wayne and the crew at Allcoast Roofing Services. They are one of the only companies that responded and came out to take a look at my roof when they said they would. Wayne constantly kept me updated with the a timeline and and knew exactly what needed to be done to my roof to stop the leaking, when other companies did not. Highly recommend this business.
I used Allcoast back around 2006 to repair and reseal a unit roof by the beach at Tugun. It still looks great in 2019 and that's why they were chosen again to restore the roof on my new house which had been leaking badly due to years of bodgey repairs by others. It looks better than new and best of all no leaks now! All work was done professionally and not rushed by any of the tradesmen.
We had All Coast Roofing repair and paint our roof in 2008 and after having a leak in the roof in Dec. 2018, I called them to get a quote to repair the leak and assess what needed to be done to the roof to update and repair. Reece was very helpful, and repaired the leak on the spot and quoted for repairs.After receiving 3 quotes for the job, once again I decided to go with All Coast Roofing due to service, follow up and diligence.I would highly recommend the company for their attention to detail, customer service and been personable to deal with.
When you're choosing a roofer to complete the repairs, you should akways ask them what type of warranty they offer on the repair work. Some companies offer a comprehensive warranty, while others will take your money and never come back.
It's also good to remember that depending on the type of repair needed, sometimes the only way to get a warranty or guarantee, you may need to have the affected area replaced altogether. For example, a silicone repair is usually considered a temporary repair and wouldn't be given a warranty.
We use and recommend Roof Protect industrial roofing membrane.
