Proximity Plumbing received a call from a client in Vaucluse after reports of excessive leak coming from the roof in the living room due to heavy rain. As we wanted to avoid the roof caving in for a while, we have decided to install an emergency tarp installation.
The tradesmen were engaged to attend an after hours emergency plumbing job to prevent further damages. They had to wait for the rain to stop pouring to be able to fix the leaking issue. They have found out that the cause of the leakage was a damaged flashing. Due to the critical placement of flashing around the area where two sections of roof meet, it is imperative to repair the lead flashing as soon as possible.
After the rain had stopped, the tradesmen successfully fixed the damaged flashing that was causing excessive leak in the roof. We’d recommend inspecting the roof’s flashings every 6 to 12 months for a preventive maintenance check, even if there isn’t any suspected issue in order to avoid large and costly repairs due to emergency plumbing problems.
