Melbourne roof leak repairs near me

Roof plumbing Forest Hill

The Doherty Plumbing Solutions office received an anxious call from a customer at Forest Hill, who reported a roof leak at their premises that were causing damage to their walk-in wardrobe.

Tim, from our team, assisted the customer promptly. He assessed the metal roof and discovered an old lead repair on the roof causing the fault. Tim removed the lead to find rust build-up that had resulted in a large hole opening on the roof sheet.

The rusted roof sheet was repaired with new sheet metal, and a new metal flashing was installed to cover the hole securely. The nearby decktite sealer was also repaired, which was affected by sun damage.

Roof plumbing Box Hill

Our roof plumbing professional George attended a customer’s property at Box Hill after they reported a roof leak in the master bedroom. Talk about an unexpected emergency!

After reaching the property, George gained access to the roof and inspected the area. He found that the box gutters and rain heads were completely full of leafy debris. Upon further inspection of the top storey gutter, blockage along the downpipe and spreader sections was also noticed.

George got to work immediately and cleared away all leafy debris on the affected roof areas – inside box gutters, rain-heads, downpipes and all downpipe spreaders. He water-tested the downpipes to ensure there were no more blockages. All was flowing well!

He suggested to the customer that as the dwelling consisted of many box gutters, it was recommended that these are cleaned and checked at least every six months.

Gas Plumbing Canterbury

Tim and Angus from the Doherty Plumbing Solutions crew attended a gas plumbing call at Canterbury, where a customer was left frustrated by their hot water unit pilot light going our intermittently for a whole week.

On closer inspection, Tim and Angus zeroed in on the problem. They cleaned the burner assembly and found the thermocouple safety switch was past its prime, so it was replaced.  Gas supply connections were tested and all was working fine.

    Doherty's installed a tap in our warehouse. It was a particularly fiddly job and they delivered on time at a competitive price. Their staff were polite, professional and helpful.
