We live in a house with a concrete roof. Our neighbors have a concrete roof too, and recently they've been dealing with some water leakage. This doesn't look like any fun, and we want to do whatever we can to prevent this from happening to us. Does anyone have any tips on preventing water leakage on a concrete roof?
It's likely that your neighbors had cracks in their roof, and that's why water was able to get through. Have you noticed any cracks in your roof? If you haven't checked recently, I'd make that a priority just to make sure. It's easy enough to fill in these cracks to prevent water damage, and it's good that you're trying to do this now. Best of luck!
We had a house with a concrete roof and there was some water leakage after a major storm. This caused big headaches for us and I wish we would have been a bit more proactive like you and your family seem to be. I think the key is to be on top of things and regularly check your roof for cracks and areas where water could get in. You can ask a local roofing contractor to help you with this.
What a bummer for your neighbors, and I hope the same thing doesn't happen to you. Have you had your roof inspected recently? If you haven't, that's something I would recommend. The best roofing contractors in your area can thoroughly check out your roof and point out any cracks or areas that need to be filled in before water can get through.
Roof cement, primer and sealer is required to fill in cracks on your roof's surface and your ceiling as well if that's concrete. Your trusted roofing contractor can identify any potential problem areas and help you get these things sorted sooner rather than later. Good on you for making this a priority, hopefully you don't experience any water damage!
