What is Roof Plumbing?

Roof plumbing refers to the roof drainage system you have installed. Professional plumbers use a select number of systems to uphold the durability and quality of roofs for your home/workplace. These systems include gutter downpipes, roof flashing, rainwater tanks and gutters and their main purpose is to redirect water flow off of your roof as well as preventing substantial water damage from occurring.

Enlisting the services of a roof plumber is essential as they undergo a unique form of training so they can efficiently work on all types of roofs, from metal sheets to clay tiles. With an expert roof plumber’s knowledge you can ensure that your home and even your health will be protected.

How Important is Roof Plumbing?

To maintain the structural integrity of your home, the appropriate plumbing system needs to be in place. If this is not the case, major damages can occur and not only that, if the situation is that severe your health can also be impacted. 

It’s crucial for home security and it will ensure that your home is more stable and will require fewer repairs over time. The right roof plumbing system will prevent future damage, helping you save time and money. If the right system isn’t in place, it could lead to a number of issues.

Roof Leakage

This is a key sign that you need a roof plumber. To prevent reaching this point, ensure that your roof plumbing is regularly serviced. We recommend having it inspected by a professional every 6 months to avoid a leaking roof and a potential ceiling leak from occurring.

Blocked Gutters

Once your roof gutters start getting damaged in the form of cracks and blocked drains, water will build up which can lead to mould growing. Your walls may be damaged and your ceilings may be affected as well. To fix this, you’ll need your gutters cleaned or replaced entirely.

Stained Ceilings and Mould Growth

The longer water accumulates for, the more chance ceiling stains have of appearing which can potentially lead to structural damage. Additionally, if the correct system is not in place, unhealthy mould can start to grow on the ceilings and walls of your home. At this point, your health is at risk.

Structural Damage

When you notice weakened or rotting wood in wooden foundations, it indicates that water is seeping into the structure. Consequently, the structural integrity of your home is being compromised.
