Thanks,

I am pensioner I saved for 7 years to get my roof tiles replaced painted and repointed I got this done before lock down and the roofer I got did a runner on me. He left me with water leaking in walls and ceilings, paint pealing, eaves have water droplets every where, he didn’t put a edge capping on one side of the Ridge cause he put flushing between carport and roof said it was ok to be like that. When it’s not said he would come back and never did. I desperately need an honest roofer to do the job right and I’m too scared I am going to get ripped off again with faulty work. I live in the Marayong near Blacktown, I think this might be out of your area. Is there any trusted roofers you might know in my area that you recommend? Desperately need help.

Kind regards
Nancy

Adrian

Hi Jack,

Do you have any recommended roofers in the Gold Coast area, QLD. We have a metal roof leak and cannot work out how the water is coming in. We have had 2 roofers attempt to seal the possible water entry points already. Regards, Adrian

Hi Jack, during a 30 min hail storm I had ice fill the valleys and melt, resulting in ceiling gyprock damage when it melt turned to water that overflowed the valley. I know it hails in Sydney not often, But I like to upgrade the valleys to stop ICE / water melt damage the ceiling gyprock in case it happen again? is it possible?

Hi Jack
We purchased a house back in 2019. In the building inspection report then it said ‘major tile fretting was noted to terra-cotta tiles.’ We’d like to get an inspection on the roof now to see exactly what is needed to ensure longevity of the roof, and note we see some flaking in our ceiling in places (unsure if this is related). Would this be something you could help with?

Martin

Hi Jack, great website. I’m located in Sutherland Shire. We’re looking at replacing some of our deck roof – currently colorbond – with a clear/translucent plastic product to let some light through, with removal of ceiling boards. There’s also a small leak which I hope this might resolve (or reveal). Is this the sort of thing you can help with? Cheers

Byron Bourke

Hi Jack, I am a Sydney based architect designing a job in Blackheath NSW. It’s an existing tile roof (21 deg pitch) that forms a valley. We are adding a skillion roof in hiland tray at 2 deg pitch.

It seems tricky to design a transitional flashing that follows the new shallow valley created by the intersection of the skillion and the existing tiles.

My solution is to create a large tile flashing (1200mm wide) that is broken up into 3 sheets. The sheets overlap 300mm and are sealed at the overlap. The crease for the flashing is on an angle in relation to the ‘valley’ of intersection of the two roof planes.

I have attached some 3d images of the design below. I was wondering what your thoughts are regarding this design.

Regards,

Byron

Thanks Jack,

I shall pass this information on to the builder as a guide. I agree with you regarding the tapered cut to the tiles. And having fewer joins is better your right.

I will keep you posted as to any future roofing projects in the Sydney area.

Thanks Jack!

Regards,

Byron

Hi Jack, I need the pool warming webbing on the north-east side of my roof relocated to the south east side of the roof overlapping the existing south-east webbing. I need to free up the north-east side for solar panels. Can I get a free quote? Jim, East Killara

Hi Jack,
Firstly great site. I would like to book a roof inspection but firstly would like to know if you service the Elanora Heights area? If not could you reccommend someone on the Northern Beaches. Many thanks

Max

Hi Jack, Yes this is my partner. So we will see you on Thursday.

Many Thanks

Hi Jack,
I tried to book the inspection and quote for the bedroom leaking ceiling under the flat colorbond roof. It is a new built house in Marsfield. I can see “No Time in May” on your calendar currently. Then how can I move down to your next available day? Should we have a quick call to confirm? Thanks in advance.

Mick Prest

Just sayin’, Jack came out a couple of weeks ago to do an inspection of our Marrickville roof (complete with box gutter). I have to say that it was like having royalty on my roof!! I have followed the videos etc for a couple of years and was sure that Jack was the “goods” and after walking around my roof with him I just want to say that he is also a lovely person and my “go to” roofer forever!! I’m just sorry I forgot to as for a “roof selfie”. Thanks Jack, I sleep better knowing I have your number!!

David McP

Hi Jack,

I need some guttering rearranged as it causing leak issues, before looking at my roof.

As you mentioned you don’t do guttering, who would you recommend (currently Colourbond/ACE quad). I need to lower one run (overruns fascia) and reinstate another down-pipe on another run.

Once this is sorted we can then look at the tile roof.

Email me directly if that’s easier.

Leonie Tindale

Hi there
We had someone come and inspect our roof last week at 9 New Street Bondi and have not received a quote yet hoping you could follow it up please 😊

Dave

Hi Jack do you service the Oatley area have a Roof leak which we cant seem to fix coming through one of the corners.

Bob fom West Pymble

Hello Jack, can I please have your advice so I can plan and budget a major roof replacement in West Pymble.
Our 60’s ranch-styled house (about 230m2 roof area) has a low angle (1:5), gabled roof.
Previous owners, for aesthetic reasons, replaced metal deck with terracotta tiles in the 90s – I think it was a mistake ! It leaks (only) in heavy rain, pointing needs constant attention, and now we want it put back to lovely colorbond steel custom orb.

Please let me know –

  1. Could you guys do such a job in our suburb? Its about 15 kms from your base.
  2. Can we put classic colourbond custom-orb on this lowish angle of gable ? (its our strong preference)
  3. You may refuse this question of course but is there a rough budgetting formula for such a replacement job ? I understand this can only be estimated as a minimum cost for a super-straightforward job, but my unqualified brother advised it would be around $300/m2).

Enjoyed your blog BTW !
Cheers
Bob

Bob fom West Pymble

Thanks Jack, we will probably plan this job for late next spring, but try to avoid the worst roasting hot weather 😉
cheers

Kaaaaaaaaa

Please cancel the roof inspection scheduled for Wednesday in Erskineville. Thanks

Marg Phillips

Hi Jack,

just letting you know that the “report” we discussed about the pine needle problem is not required. I’ve been advised by Burwood Council’s tree guy that case law principles have been set in NSW that mean that homeowners have to keep a clean roof regardless of where the debris is coming from. We still need the drips on the back deck sorted because it has been dripping plenty in the last few days.

kind regards
Marg

Ian Barralet

Hi Jack, I’ve filled in my booking request on the booking page but there’s no submit button, so I’m filling information in here just in case. I’ve tried to select Thursday 23rd February at 10.30am as the date and time. I’d like to arrange a quote for roof repairs to our Colorbond roof in Mortdale. The main problem is leaking that seems to be coming from the side box gutter into the ceiling.
Thanks, Ian Barralet

Becca Wareham

Hi Jack – we have a flat Colorbond roof with box gutter. When we get a heavy downpour of rain the water fills up the box gutter and tracks back along the ceiling and pours down the windows inside (badly!) The downpipes are completely clear, the box gutter just isn’t big enough to take these large volumes of water. Is there a waterproof membrane or something similar on the market, that you can stick to the top edge of the roof and seal all the way through the inside of the box gutter? We already have additional overflow pipes coming out of the box gutter, but it’s just not enough!
(Also, re your online calendar, I cannot see the last week of the month – it’s not showing)

Becca Wareham

Many thanks Jack – will make a booking.
Cheers Becca

Hi Jack,

I just watched your video about rusty nails and terracotta tiles. I have this problem with my roof. A local roofer said reroof in colourbond is only option! What is the solution you prefer?

Paul

Hi Jack,
We are experiencing leaks on a flat roof.
Do you recommend any experts in the Brisbane area?

Hi Jack, My pergola roof, Trimdek, was hail damaged in October 2021 in Coffs Harbour. It is 5m x 4.5m with a pitch of <2° and had two opaque fibreglass sunstrips 150/190 wide. This roof has not leaked in the 11 years we have been living here. The insurer’s roofer/assessor said he would replace the roofing panels but fibreglass sun strips were not an option and he would use Trimdek polycarbonate sheets cut to a similar size to the old strips. When it now rains I have numerous leaks along the polycarbonate sheet edges due to the sheet edges being distorted along its length. The roofer has said the only option to fix the leaks is to remove the current strips and replace them with full size sheets fixed on to the top of the metal sheets. I have never heard or seen of such a repair and I am wondering if this is the only option I have to retain my insurer’s Life Time guarantee on the repairs. Thanks Ken
