Roof Leak in Elwood
The team at Gallant Plumbing were called out to a roof leak in Elwood. With water leaking through the gutters and into the roof, our team attended the site quickly.
Arriving on site, our Melbourne plumber initially went to investigate two leaks. But through thorough investigation, multiple leaks were stumbled upon. The plumber recognized that he needed to gain access to the roof.
Elwood Roof Leak
Firstly, our best plumber spent hours assessing the leaks, and found by getting inside the roof, rain was getting into the bottom trays underneath the box gutter and dripping at a low point. The plumber then located a hole in the capping and believed that was sucking in water and letting it run behind the box gutter. Therefore, he re-sealed the gutter joints and a few other suspected areas.
In addition to this a second leak was around 1 metre away from the first leak and was a touch smaller. This water was sucking through loose holes in the ridge capping. Our Plumber also noticed that the turn ups were quite small so as a result he completed sealing along the ridge capping to prevent this.
Our best Melbourne plumber noticed water was getting in around lights in the change rooms. The Plumber crawled under the deck area on the roof and found there were multiple dektite installations that require backflushing. Our Melbourne Plumber sealed them as a temporary fix until they install trays in the areas to solidify them.
