What Is A Roof Valley?

Roof valleys are the troughs that form where two roof slopes meet. Their purpose is to collect water and move it away from the roof to a gutter.

Roof Valley Replacement

The lifespan of roof valleys can be up to 20 years. However, roof valleys will deteriorate over time. One of the leading factors that cause roof valleys to leak is leaves that get trapped. Wet leaves on roof valleys can cause corrosion and rust bubbles to form. Over time this may lead to holes. If you haven’t had your roof inspected for a while, the first sign that you need to replace your rusted roof valleys may be when you see a stain on your ceiling under the area of the roof that has a valley.

There are certain times when roof valleys in good condition get blocked up with leaves and debris. Under conditions of heavy rain, this can cause the water to backup and flood into the roof cavity.

If you are having the ridge capping repointed on a tiled roof, it makes sense to check the roof valleys are in good condition. Failing to do this could cost you more money down the track.
