Leaking Roof Valleys & Gulley Repairs in Alton

Roof Valley Repair & Replacements GU34

A roof valley is located where two sloped roofs meet. It’s designed to guide rainwater down the roof where it then typically discharges into the guttering. Roof valleys are subjected to more rainwater than any other part of the roof. During a downpour, the valley can experience a torrent of water and it’s not uncommon for an older roof valley to leak.

A common issue is leaks caused by blockages. If the valley is full of leaves, twigs and other organic material such as roof moss, rainwater may back up and enter the loft through the overlapping tiles. Blockages are fairly easy for professional roofers like Homefix to resolve and the work shouldn’t take long. If, however, the leak is due to failure of the valley components, then a full replacement or substantial repairs may be required.

Concrete Roof Valley Leak

These types of valleys are notorious for leaking, the tiles are so heavy that they often cause the roof timbers to sag, gaps then appear, or the tiles slip, and the result is always the same, they leak. Concrete tiles often crack and can be difficult to replace without damaging others. Temporary repairs are possible, but concrete valley tiles should ideally be replaced with a more modern and reliable product such as fibreglass.

Fatigue Split Leaking Lead Roof Valley

Some roof valleys are made with lead, which is long-lasting, waterproof and flexible enough to use almost anywhere on a roof.  Lead has a high rate of thermal expansion; it expands a lot when it gets hot and shrinks a lot when it gets cold. This can result in splits, which causes water ingress. If roofing lead has splits it needs a repair with a sleeve, or if it is too thin then whole valley will need replacing with thicker lead or fibreglass.

Fibreglass roof valley failure

Fibreglass is a popular material to use in a roof valley, it’s lightweight, cheap, resists UV rays and is watertight. Unfortunately, older fibreglass products weren’t as sturdy as their modern counterparts. Some that were installed 20 – 30 years ago are cracking, splitting or leaking. One-off damage, perhaps from a fallen tree branch, can often be repaired while damage due to age or wear and tear may require a full valley replacement.

Blocked Roof Valley

If a roof valley is blocked by organic material such as leaves and twigs, then rainwater may back up and enter the loft. Bits of broken tile, concrete, old aerial cables or brackets or any other part of the roof that’s damaged or broken off can also become lodged in the valley where it blocks the flow of water. If your valley is leaking, Homefix can remove any blockages and inspect the valley itself for any signs of damage or wear and tear.

Plain Tiled Valley (broken tiles, aging, etc)

Plain tiles are small tiles and many roof valleys will have been constructed with these tiles. Tiled roof valleys fail and leak for various reasons, for example a broken tile in the centre of the valley or the general age of the roof, wear and tear or failed and rotten timbers. Repairs are often straight-forward, replace a broken tile for a new one or if necessary, replace the full valley.
