What to Do If Your Roof Starts Leaking

Have you spotted a leak in your roof? It can be one of the most frustrating and anxiety-inducing moments for a homeowner. Seeing a leak, no matter how small, can leave you wondering just how costly the repairs can be, and you will be wanting to get it repaired as soon as possible.

If you have spotted a leak in your home, here is what you should do:

  1. Move your belongings

The first thing you should do is remove any belongings that might be underneath the leak. The last thing that you want is the water to damage more of your property, so clearing the room out as quickly as possible is essential.

  1. Contain the leak

Water soaking into your floor can lead to the leak spreading, so you should try to contain the leak in a bucket or container – just remember to watch out for your container overflowing!

  1. Tarp the roof

If you can, and you are confident enough to do so, try to block the hole in your roof with tarpaulin, preventing more water from soaking through.

  1. Call the professionals

The most important step of all is to call the professionals. The sooner you act when spotting a leak, the lower your repair bills and the less damage to your property.
