Repair roof leaks as soon as you notice them

Most people only realize they have a problem with their roof until the morning after a storm. While the damage may be pre-existing, it is only once rain has fallen that it becomes evident inside the home. If you have noticed parts of your ceiling dripping, it’s best to be proactive about it. Even though a few drops of water may not seem like a big deal, it is important to it fixed straightaway. Ignoring a roof leak can actually be very dangerous.

Asbestos removal

Richmond plumbing and roofing can arrange all types of asbestos removal from your property. E.P.A guidelines and work cover standards are strictly adhered to. All asbestos waste is double wrapped in black plastic, sealed and safely removed from the work site. When this process is complete, a final inspection can be undertaken before any further works can begin.

As with all work carried out by Richmond Plumbing and Roofing, clients are fully covered by a $10 million public liability insurance cover.

Insulation

Richmond plumbing and roofing can arrange the insulation to your ceiling area with batts or your roof area with insulation blanket or Aircell or Sisalation paper.

Skylights

Richmond Plumbing and Roofing has its own design in skylights. The old fashioned skylights with the dome covers are prone to leakage and become very brittle over time, leaving them prone to damaged in heavy hail storms resulting in damage to your home. Our design is simple but extremely effective. We built a vertical wall through the roof with an “up stand “we then fully flash all the way around the up stand and install a 10mm thick tinted laminated piece of glass on top. This method never leaks or deteriorates over time, reducing your heating and cooling costs. It looks very attractive, especially at night when you can see the stars twinkling in the sky.

Metal Roof Replacement

When a metal roof can no longer be repaired because it is rusted out, you will need a complete roof replacement. In the mid 1970s Zincalume was introduced and then followed Colourbond TM. Colourbond TM is Zincalume with powder coated paint over it. Colourbond TM is the most commonly used metal roofing material today because it is durability, anti corrosion, and a wide range of colours to choose from; which means no more painting. This can add value to your home.

Roof Leak Repairs

Metal roof repairs

Most metal roofs can be repaired. The most common problems with metal roofs are holes or rust. Often where one roof sheet over laps another sweating occurs. Over time this area rusts out and holes start to appear in your roof. If sweating between the roof sheets has been happening for some time and rust holes have appeared, we can install a” slip sheet”. We install a small roof sheet between the two rusted out roof sheets. This can be a more economical solution rather than replacing the whole sheet.

Usually we can track down the source of the roof leak relatively quickly, but some are harder to find than others. Sometimes we do not find the water leak the first time every time and it is a matter of an elimination process. Water may come into the roof area and then travel from one spot to another. In the end we always get our leak.

General history

The first metal roofing sheets were made was back in the mid 19th century. This material was called corrugated wrought iron. The process required wrought iron to be hot dipped into molten zinc. Then at the change of the 20th century mild steel replaced the wrought iron. Mild steel was called galvanised iron. Galvanised iron was used for most of the 20th century as it was a good material and is still used today. Rust is what kills this roofing material, but if you minimise joins and have a good roof pitch and the roof in well maintained, it could last over 100 years.

Zincalume

Zincalume is made from hi tensile steel then coated with aluminum and zinc.

Colorbond

Colorbond is the same as product as zincalume then has several coats of colour finishes. Colorbond is a low maintenance material that provides clean crisp lines and has versatility to suit any roof type and roof pitched over 5 degrees.

Tray deck roofing

Tray deck roofing can be used as low as 1 degree and is mostly commonly used on flat roofs, whether it’s a new extension or an existing roof.
