A. What is the cause of roof leaks?

1, the roof inside the water pipe leakage

The wall is damp leading to the roof pre-buried water pipe leakage, generally this situation is mostly found in places close to the bathroom, or the roof of the building, or the wall, generally a part of the pre-buried water pipe joint leakage.

2、Waterproofing measures are not good

Waterproofing works on the ground upstairs are not done well leading to wall leakage, once there is water in the bathroom, there is a leak near the pipe, water flowing down the pipe, will slowly penetrate downward, leading to roof leakage.

B, roof leaks how to find the leak

1, roof plumbing leaks can use PQWT pipe leak detector to find the leak point, in general, the basic detection method is to connect the leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headphones, the water leak detector sensor placed on the road above the pipe, placed step by step according to the length of the step, step by step listening, the closer to the leak point the stronger the signal, the farther away from the leak point, the weaker the signal, by comparing the signal strength between different points to achieve the purpose of detecting the leak point.

2, the waterproof layer leakage can use PQWT waterproof detector to find the leak, waterproof detector working principle: through the wall, ground, roof seepage of water as a medium, use the instrument to detect the strength of the conductivity of the seepage area, when close to the leak point, the instrument interface value increases, the beeping sound to strengthen, thus accurately determine the location of the leak. The equipment is mainly used in houses, walls, floors and other water leaks can effectively provide a basis for waterproofing work to be carried out to discern.

C, how to solve the roof leak?

1, water pipe rupture caused by roof leaks, this situation can only find a master smashing brick solution, there is no trick. It is recommended to find a professional maintenance master to accurately locate the leak point, the damage is very small, the loss and repair costs will be reduced.

2, the roof leaks to the downstairs caused by the rupture of the waterproof layer, there are 2 ways to solve.

①, find a renovation company or maintenance master, the leak all smashed open, redo the waterproofing, and then repair the leak, the cost is very high, the work period is long, it takes about 7-15 days.

②, no smash brick waterproofing, repair master through high-pressure grouting (acrylic salt), the roof was broken ring waterproof layer plugging (for the case of small damage to the waterproof layer), construction time is short, the warranty time can generally reach 5-10 years or more, but also more users of the market choice

d. How much does it cost to repair a leaky roof?

The cost of repairing a leaky roof is actually impossible to estimate in the early stage, because it needs to see the location of the leak on site, first of all, to assess whether the leak is a concealed pipe leak, waterproof leak, downspout leak or other causes of leakage, and then calculate the approximate cost of repair. If the repair master direct telephone offer (not recommended), the price must not be cheap or offer very cheap, construction will increase the price, after all, who does not do business at a loss, be sure to shine a light on the choice.
