Gallant Plumbing recently completed a Brunswick roof repair job. Water leakage and roof system issues can be one of the most daunting and disturbing issues to encounter. Especially when you don’t know what’s causing them. As a plumber in Melbourne, inspecting and fixing roof leaks in Melbourne is one of our specialties. Our plumbers here at Gallant are also known to be among the best plumbers in Melbourne, qualified to tackle a vast range of issues.
Recently, one of our clients in Brunswick was facing water leakages into their garage and had water running into the switchboards. In addition to that, they were also hearing water dripping sounds outside their apartment dripping into their concrete footpath. After reaching out to us, and requesting an inspection, we found out that the noise coming from outside the apartment was not from a water pump. However, there was an access hatch that has noise coming from the air conditioner.
In the above images, you can see water dripping from the air conditioning duct. There are multiple reasons as to why this could occur. For instance, air could be leaking around the vent or it could be a dirty air filter problem. There are many other possibilities.
After investigating the issue we proceed to fix the leakage by installing a flashing and sealing it around the pipes. However, the edges of the flashing were too sharp to be left unresolved without taking safety measures. So to ensure the finish was safe, we bent the ends of the flashing to eliminate sharp edges and also to make it aesthetically sound.
Following that, we sealed the wall and the dips in the concrete footpaths and around the pipes. Nevertheless, after following up with the work we discovered that there were few dips in the concrete footpath that the silicon did not seal so we resealed those areas.
The materials and tools we used were of high-quality flashing, silicon sealant and hammers. We promise quality solutions and prompt issue detection to our clients because we know how inconvenient and bombarding water problems could be, especially in residential households.
