What causes roof leaks in heavy rain and how to fix them while it rains? We will explain the reasoning behind why your roof is more likely to leak during heavier rains & how to make an emergency repair during the rain to prevent unnecessary damage for different roof types.
Roof Leaks From Small Cracks
Metal, Tile & Flat Roof Leaks
- Metal Roof Leaks: Small rusted holes are a common leak source in metal roofs, those small rusted holes sometimes become wider during heavy rains, causing your roof to leak.
- Tile Roof Leaks: Tile roofs are known to have an issue with dried up concrete build up especially 15+ year old roofs. During heavier rains water can slip through the small cracks in the dried up concrete creating a leak in your roof.
- Flat Roof Leaks: Unlike angled roofs, Flat roofs can get water build up quicker making water penetration in heavy rains very common and creating a leak in your roof.
