We often get asked to look at mould problems, particularly toward the end of winter. Mould will grow when the ceiling or wall is damp from condensation or a roof leak and stays damp for a period of a few days or more. In Sydney we had a very wet week back in July. South facing walls or other parts of the house that stayed damp were prone to mould growth. Most of the mould I looked at was not caused by a roof leak. “Roof leak” mould tends to be in isolated spot and usually causes some minor damage to the ceiling as the drip from the...
Yesterday I was called out to look at a roof in Balmain. The neighbours had been complaining that parts of it were landing in their property! On investigation I found that the rear part of the house had been renovated and an imitation type slate material had been used for the roof.

The number of people requesting a Free Quote over the last few days has “gone through the roof”. We are working to get to each one but there maybe a little delay.
Often a roof will seem to be leaking, when actually it is the run off from an over full gutter backing up into the house.

We finished this roof a couple of weeks ago!
It may only take a few days to completely change your roof, but as you can see,
the result is something that will last (and last and last…)

I was so impressed by his obvious knowledge and efficiency that I did not even bother to get another quote!
“The job has just been completed and I am, once again, very impressed. They arrived exactly when promised and completed the job with diligence and efficiency.
