Do you live in an area that’s prone to heavy rainfall? If so, you may be at risk of leaks or property damage. If you have already experienced such rain-related problems, it may be the case that your roofing is at fault. Here at Woodstock Roofing, we offer a variety of services that can help your roof deal with rainfall and other forms of damaging weather. In fact, we’ve prepared a short list of ways that we can help you say goodbye to rainwater-related leaks and property damage.

1. Applying membranes and waterproof layers

Flat roofs are particularly vulnerable to rain because pools of water can build up on them until they are large enough to soak through the roof and leak in or cause damage. Luckily, here at Woodstock Roofing, we can apply roofing layers that are highly water-resistant and which can prevent rainwater from entering a roof. We provide options such as PVC single-ply roofing, EPDM rubber and even liquid applied membranes, which are made from Decothane and can be applied over existing roofs where the previous waterproofing layer has failed.

2. Guttering maintenance and cleaning

Your guttering is responsible for channelling rainwater into your drains so that it doesn’t cause property damage. If your guttering is broken, fractured or partially blocked, it may not be able to perform this task adequately. So simply having your guttering repaired or cleaned out can often drastically reduce the amount of damage your building takes from rainwater.

3. Damage repair

If your roof is cracked or damaged in places, this can allow rainwater in - even if the damage seems minor. However, there’s no need to panic; in addition to installing new roofs and roofing layers, we at Woodstock Roofing can repair damaged parts of existing roofs and therefore prevent rainwater from leaking into your home.

If your home suffers from leaks and rainwater damage, now is the perfect time to address the problem. Spring has arrived and brought drier weather with it, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about your rainwater-related problems. Instead, use this period of moderate weather to prepare for the next rainfall. By applying waterproof membranes, repairing damage or simply having guttering cleaned out by a roofing company, you can ensure that you aren’t caught out by leaks and water damage the next time it rains.
