Why Do You Need A Roof Inspection?
If you notice water damage within your home on the ceilings, around the cornices or dampness on the walls, skirting boards or carpet, a thorough roof inspection is required to ascertain the extent of any roof damage. A comprehensive roof inspection will include an interior and exterior evaluation of the roof’s structure. This includes assessing the roofs guttering systems and giving you advice on whether your roof has adequate drainage and meets Australian Standards. Our roof plumber will also examine the interior of the house including the ceilings and walls for any dampness or water leaks, as well as any roof and attic spaces for any internal evidence of wind, water or hail damage.
Thermal imaging and moisture meter readings form part of our standard testing procedure when assessing the interior of your home for any water damage. Most people assume their roof is well made and properly installed; but in reality, roofs are quite vulnerable as they are exposed to all the harsh elements of Melbourne’s unpredictable weather. It is also prudent to have your roof analysed and inspected, especially after heavy rain or violent storms. If you do notice any internal water damage, it is critical that you have an experienced Melbourne roof plumber carry out a roof inspection as soon as possible to prevent ongoing water damage to the interior ceiling or walls. Not doing so can result in more costly repairs in the long term.
A roof that is flawed in any manner has the potential to put you and your loved ones at risk. Furthermore, severe roof damage can result in costly repairs or even a full roof replacement that decimates your finances. The solution is to be proactive with regular professional roof inspections with Plan B Plumbing Solutions.

At Plan B Plumbing Solutions, we aim to educate our customers to fully understand their roof structure, its condition, and any immediate or potential problem areas – and locate exactly where any damage may have occurred. When it comes to roof inspections, unfortunately not many homeowners put it on their priority list. We often take roofs for granted, until there’s a leak of course.
Typically, tiled roofs last for 30 years. That life span can be cut short drastically if early water damage signs aren’t noticed early enough or are ignored. Your roof is the first line of defence for your home, protecting your home from weather damage. Sun, wind, rain, hail, lichen, trees and so on will lead to roof deterioration over time. Quality of materials and installation is an important factor as well.
Regular roof inspections will ensure that the roof is taken care of properly and early damage is dealt with swiftly, allowing you to repair small problems now rather than having to replace a neglected roof entirely later. We often suggest to our customers to have their roofs inspected twice annually and Plan B Plumbing Solutions is a leader in the industry for roof inspections. When choosing an experienced and qualified roofing plumbing company in Melbourne – with great customer reviews – think Plan B Plumbing Solutions; you won’t be disappointed.
