Along with food and water, a “roof over your head” is one of the basic necessities of life.
Most people are fortunate enough to have one – but all too many houses in New Zealand are plagued by mysterious leaks, and their occupants constantly dread the arrival of rain or wind.
There are many possible causes of roof damage. Heavy wind or hail, a buildup of leaves or other debris in your gutters, blocked downpipes, and even too much sun, can all spoil your roof and cause rainwater to drip through.
The most common issues can be avoided with regular gutter cleaning, but if it’s already too late for that, you might need to get someone in to fix your roof.
