It can be difficult to get builders and roofers to come out and track down roof leaks when required – with us you call and we come.
We undertake spouting & roof repairs, and (if you want it done right) new roofing work. Sound plumbing principles have steered us in the right direction for waterproofing. Plumbers are taught that water runs downhill; a detail overlooked by other trades reliant on silicon.
Poor roof design can be part of an ongoing problem that will often need significant work to sort out. For example, undersized internal box gutters – there is nothing wrong with them if they are sized correctly and have the right number of downpipes and correct size. Well designed overflow points are critical if the downpipes get obstructed or blocked.
To find some stubborn persistent leaks we may need to get out the garden hose to simulate rainfall, and, as is the case with some roof leaks, it is not always possible to track them down in one visit and may require several for some stubborn hard to track roof leaks.
Often a remedy for roof leaks is simple and only requires a re-screw of roof iron and a couple of flashings changed. We may need to install a back tray flashing from behind a chimney or a skylight.
Problems often arise from leaves in the gutters and require a simple clean out, this will often reveal some rust problems.
So if you have roof leaks we would be happy to come out and repair them on homes and commercial buildings.
If the job is looking like a full re-roof or a tricky re-spout we would be the first to admit you are best to get a specialised roofing or spouting company and can refer you to the appropriate company for that; however they don’t want to do minor repairs or leak tracking.
