We specialise in remedial roofing. We’ll replace your roof if necessary but we don’t install roofs on new buildings. This means our tradesmen aren’t juggling work on your roof with a builder's tight deadlines. Our tools, skills and experience are specifically geared towards top-quality roof repairs.
We are qualified and highly skilled in:
We work on:
Our tradesmen work on all roofs from tiled ones on single-storey homes to metal ones on multi-storey commercial buildings.
Does your roof leak?
We will stop the leak, no matter how persistent. Rainwater leaks are our specialty and we’ll do whatever it takes to isolate the cause and fix your roof.
Do you need to repaint externally?
We can fit maintenance-free materials to the exterior of your premises so you’ll hardly ever have to repaint. to reduce or eliminate the amount of external painting you’ll need to do. These products are made from Colorbond steel, aluminium, vinyl, PVC etc. New products are emerging on the market all the time.
We fit maintenance-free materials to:
Ridge capping is when we replace the cement bedding under your tiled ridges, hips, barges and/or gables. A flexible pointing compound is then applied over the top. This becomes necessary when mortar work deteriorates because it becomes porous and starts to draw water through itself, causing leaks in the roof. We may recommend verge capping over your gables to prevent having to rebed and point them in the future.
Flashing aprons and penetration flashings
Roof and Balcony Solutions can check your apron flashings and the flashings on any other items penetrating the roof. We’ll let you know if they need replacing or if they need stripping and resealing.
We use lead-free products such as Deks Perform, Dektites, Wakaflex and Flashtites.
Gutters and downpipes
We can repair or replace your internal and external guttering and downpipes. We can even redesign them to increase their capacity, if necessary.
We clean gutters
Roof & Balcony Solutions can do a one-off clean of your gutters, or you can schedule us to do it at regular intervals. You won’t need to remember — we’ll do it for you.
While we’re on your roof we’ll check it for any obvious faults. If we feel you need gutter guards we’ll recommend the most suitable ones.
We are fully insured
Not all roofers are as well insured as we are. Changes to public liability insurance and the Workers Compensation Act in recent years have made insurance premiums prohibitively expensive for some tradespeople. Many work underinsured, which means those in charge of the property could be held liable if a tradesperson needs to make a claim. Roof and Balcony Solutions can supply you with certificates of currency for all our insurance policies.
A word about roof restorations
We don’t recommend roof restorations. They are predominantly cosmetic and usually don’t increase the roof’s lifespan. In our experience they’re rarely necessary and can often create new problems. Here are some common pitfalls:
That said, we understand that an old roof doesn’t look the same as a restored one. So If you choose to have your roof restored, we strongly recommend you check the credentials of the tradespeople you hire.
