We offer roof repairs for both residential and commercial properties. Having a good roof is important as it is necessary to keep water, storm, and other natural elements out of the building. The condition of the roof is usually checked when you sell your house.

Leaking roofs can do a lot of damage, particularly if left to leak for a long time. Small leaks can go unnoticed for a long time. If the building has timber construction purlins and joists can start to rot.

Our installers all have a license to do a range of common roofing materials including tiles, long-run iron, pressed tiles. We have carried out over 29,000 jobs in the last 30 years. Our continued success reflects our dedication and workmanship.

High Roofs and Hard to Access Roof Areas

We use rope access techniques to access hard to get to areas and high-level roofing. Working at heights requires supervision and protection.

Some areas will need scaffolding where extensive repairs are needed. Scaffolding is the most common way to have a safe work platform for working at heights. In New Zealand, scaffolds must comply with Scaffolding, Access & Rigging New Zealand (SARNZ) guidelines. Trained people must erect and dismantle scaffolds.

Hard to Find Roof Leaks

Roof leaks can be difficult to locate. To locate the roof leak, sometimes roofers may need to remove the sheets. Visiting the roof area when it is raining may also help in finding the leak. A test with a hose may also help in some cases. Although, a hose cannot deliver as much water as the rain. In any event, a trial and error approach is used to find the roof leak. We start with a roof inspection and price repairs from there. In some cases, the leak is coming from far up the roof and is between the roof, and the building paper running out in a completely different location.

The leak can be in a completely different place from where it is coming through the ceiling. Small repairs may be a false economy. It is better to get something for your money than lose it all on a repair that does not work long term. Putting a block of silicon on a rust spot is rarely successful. It can result in making the problem worse. Silicon will not stick to rust, nor can it be applied over a crack for long-term results. The building code in New Zealand requires the repair to last at least 15 years.

We can detect roof leak locations by water testing the roof and checking to see whether the water is coming inside the roof. Roof leaks are not always visible from above.

Roof replacement repair in wellington

With roof replacement, it is important to get the gradient right. Corrugated iron roofing has a small pitch of 8 degrees and 10 degrees if it is in short sheets. Other materials can go down to 3 degrees pitch, which is 50 mm per meter rise. When the roof does not have this pitch, they need to raise the pitch to meet supplier installation instructions and comply with the building code. Guarantees will not apply if the roof is not raised. Suppliers also insist on the owner washing iron roofing to meet warranty conditions.
