Water Test

Sometimes even the most trained and experienced roofer cannot visibly see a water leak on a roof...

By doing a water test we can see where the entry point is.

WHAT IT INVOLVES

  • In the first instance attending the property for an inspection eliminating all obvious problems that can occur with tiles or iron roofs.
  • Checking water damage inside roof.
  • Recommending a water test at a set price to determine exactly where water problem is.
  • Applying water to area suspected of where the problem occurs.
  • Inspecting inside of roof cavity to see where water entry has occurred.
  • Diagnosing problem.
