Roof Repairs Brisbane is a team of roofers that can fix leaking roofs so you don’t have to worry about the threat of damage. Roof repairs in Brisbane usually fall into 3 main categories. Tiled roof repairs, metal roof repairs and decramastic roof repairs. The reason that it is difficult to add the category of asbestos roof repairs is due to the current laws governing roof repairs in Brisbane.
Tiled Roof Repairs
While the majority of people that call, believe their tiled roof is leaking because of damaged tiles, in reality this is often only partly true. Tiled roofs will leak for a large number of reasons and with over 40 years of business experience in roofing you can rest assured that Queensland Roofing know them all.
Take valley repairs for example, watching this great video on valley repairs of a terracotta tiles roof. You can see by the example that rust holes as small as a pin head can build up over time and cause a substantial leak for a home owner. Something worth noting is that sometime the leak can appear quite large (in fact larger than it actually is) due to the fact that mold can also begin to grow in the leaking area. When the leak appears on the ceiling, keep in mind that if it is a result of long term leaking, the mold will also occur. In some cases the gyiprock does not actually need to be replaced, it can be cleaned and painted, in some cases cleaned only.

Roof Repairs Brisbane (Leaking Tiles)
Another cause of leaking tiled roofs in Brisbane comes from aging tiles. The video below is and absolutely sensational example of what we mean. Almost impossible to detect without lifting up tiles is the dreaded aging water courses of concrete roof tiles. Used to direct water down the roof and interlock tiles together the water courses of concrete tiles can prove to be an absolute nightmare for home owners in Brisbane and surrounding suburbs.
Roof Repairs Brisbane (Damaged Pointing)
Probably one of the most famous and well know issues that occurs with tiled roofs is pointing. Yet it is still extremely misunderstood. While it seems logical that old and damaged pointing would cause a roof to leak, it is not always the case. Careful investigation needs to occur to ensure that the person looking at your roof and providing you with a quote has fully detected the leaks that are causing the issues and doesn’t simply jump to the conclusion of seeing old pointing and hoping a re point will fix things.
