We can efficiently repair all types of roof leaks

Leaking roofs degrade by degrees: little by little, then all at once. When you imagine the common signs of a roof leaking, you might picture slowly widening mouldy circles on the ceiling. You might imagine a flood. But before that, a leak is just a drip; it’s cracked gout, a loose tile, a torn sealing, a loose pipe.

Ideally, we’ll catch the drip before the flood. But rest assured that no matter how severe or widespread the problem, our comprehensive roof leak repair solutions will return your site to clean dry safety.

Inner City Plumbing’s full-service plumbing specialists can tackle all roof repair projects, including:

Frequently asked questions

The best thing to do is call a professional roof plumber to assess your roof for damage as soon as you notice a leak.

A leak can cause a roof to collapse if it’s had enough time to degrade the roof and its supports. Rot this severe isn’t going to happen overnight. But if you’ve got an older roof (20 years or older) and regularly get small leaks, chances are the wooden supports in your roof are fairly waterlogged and rotten.

In most cases, leaks are fairly self-evident. You’ll notice water stains on your ceilings and walls, and you may even get water dripping through your ceilings if there’s enough moisture.

Here are some common signs you have a roof leak.

  • Particular ceiling lights fritzing out
  • Constant mould issues
  • Damaged tiles on your roof
  • Severe water damage on the exterior walls of your house

Call a professional roof plumber immediately for an assessment if you notice any of these signs.
