Roof Leak in Carlton
Gallant Plumbing recently attended to a roof leak in Carlton.
Our best plumber arrived onsite and attended to the above upstairs kitchenette roof leak areas.
On inspection, our plumber has noticed there had to be repairs. These included back flashings, ductwork and adjusting air conditioning supports. As well as sealing and testing additional existing roof leaks.
Firstly, our Melbourne plumber picked up the materials needed from suppliers and the office. He then returned to the site and began disconnecting and temporarily removing existing air-conditioner condenser and ductwork supports above the kitchenette roof leak areas.
Secondly, our best plumber installed back flashings above kitchenette roof leak areas and sealed joins underneath and on top. Following this, he screwed flashings to roof sheet ribs, installed dektite, and reinstated all supports. To finish this step our plumber installed rubber between dissimilar metals to avoid galvanic action.

Thirdly, the plumber sealed around skylight, skylight screws and ridge capping where leak is located.
Following this, our best Melbourne Plumber investigated further into air-conditioner leak area. He water tested pipework penetration, and started applying sealant where possible leaks were occurring at the upstream of the air-conditioner penetration.
Our plumber then conducted further water testing which resulted in little amounts of water still coming through the insulation after some time. As a result of this, he applied sealant to roof sheet overlap which was possibly causing capillary action, sealed this area and water tested again, no further leakages were found from air-conditioner penetration insulation.
To conclude, our plumber informed the client that the leaks are fixed, and the rain over the next few days should be a clear indicator to whether it is solved for good.
