  ***Wind speeds were recorded at up to 140 km an hour and wild weather caused building damage, blackouts and trees to tip over. Building and property damage we have attended to has included dislodged roof and ridge tiles, TV aerials blown off the roof, chimneys/flues having been damaged and sections of roof having been lifted off.

        ~Our initial works at properties include, barricading off any dangerous areas, making temporary repairs so as to  prevent water leaks, and securing the buildings infrastructure to prevent  personal-injury.

          ~We have provide numerous reports, quotations and supporting documents to  property owners, managers and insurance groups and complete roof restoration Melbourne

             ***Recommendations for Property Owners & Managers

-inspect your property both internally and externally paying particular attention to any staining on ceilings and walls and unusual noises heard.

-when inspecting the outside of the property be sure to check the roof, chimneys, trees or any other exposed infrastructure.

-consider  engaging a specialist roofing company to carry out an audit of your roof and associated infrastructure and carry out regular gutter cleaning & roof repairs

One of the more unusual jobs we attended involved a slate roof property in South Melbourne with a tree having crashed through the roof. When our emergency plumber arrived onsite he found extensive slate roofing damage and water damage internally.  Our emergency plumber provided a cost estimate to the client on the spot, organized two of our roof restoration specialists to attend that day and made the property safe and water tight. We provide a fixed price quote for the permanant slate roof repairs and internal restoration works and completed fixed price roof repairs within 7 days.
