Why do roof leaks occur?
It rains a lot in Adelaide. And during those days, roofs are prone to leaking. So why do roofs actually leak? Here are a few reasons.
Weak roof materials
Like everything in our homes, our roof materials begin to weaken over time. And extreme weather can wreak havoc on them, forcing them to break and crack – causing leaks.
Rust on the roof
As rust develops, holes start to form, which encourages leaking.
And the roof valley is a key area that’s prone to rusting. It’s the point where the house slopes. It blocks, and starts to leak – especially if it’s not properly sealed.
Flashings, which are the metal pieces under the roofing shingles and roof to seal it, weaken over time. This causes the leak.
How Long Do Roofs Last?
This is hard to answer, so it’s best to get an expert to come out and inspect yours. It depends on the material of your roof and how it was originally installed.
But as a general rule, a normal roof usually lasts between 15 to 25 years. If you have a roof made of slate or concrete, it will last longer – up to 50 years. The older the house, the more chance it is that it needs to be restored.
