Maintaining a fit residential structure, specifically essential parts like the roof, could be daunting if it hasn’t been dealt with professionally in the building phase or when problems occur. Roof works can often be put in the too hard basket and it becomes easy for residents to neglect these repairs or maintenance, causing problems to gradually arise. This post will be about a recent job we did where we did a roof repair in Toorak.
What are the common reasons behind Roof problems?
Often, homeowners do not consider the unseen but vital workings of their houses. An example of this is the state of their roof structures. Unless there are problems, homeowners would forget how much they relied on them to live their lives. However, neglecting proper maintenance and set-up of roof structures can lead to severe issues. Some examples of neglect include ignoring the installation of weather compatible roofs and choosing materials unsuitable for the unpredictable Australian weather. Other examples of neglect include not cleaning roofs regularly, ignoring minor leaks or trying to solve them without professional help. This leads to a number of other problems such as mould and breakages. Above all, lack of proper maintenance will shorten the lifespan of your roof in general.
Roof Repair in Toorak
At Gallant Plumbing, a 24 hour plumber services in Melbourne, we were recently called out to complete a roof repair in Toorak. Our team responded in a timely manner and arrived there to see what needed to be repaired. Upon arriving at the property, our expert Melbourne plumbers conversed with the clients to understand their needs and expectations.
The clients requested the team to remove a rear left side of guttering spouting from the property. Moreover, they needed supply and installation of a new Colourbond Squareline profile (a type of steel manufactured for gutters) spouting and a rain head (pipes meant to carry away rainwater from the roof) to prevent overflows in the gutter.
Our jobs also included supplying internal bracket clips to mount plumbing components on walls. Additionally, we were required to install a PVC downpipe that went from the Rain head to the existing downpipe below the decking. The client also wanted the team to install an external corner within the guttering connecting it to the existing gutter.
After inspection, the team decided it was best to remove the old Gutter and brackets. They fitted new brackets and installed a 1.2 m gutter and created the external corner. Besides that, they fitted another 6m gutter across the back of the house. Finally, they installed the Downpipe from the Rainhead to the old down pipe. The materials used were silicon, Rainheads and rivets.
Before leaving the site, the team cleaned away any leftover rubbish from the worksite. The job ran easily and smoothly without leaving the client happy and well informed.
