Valley Iron Replacement Melbourne

Roof valleys play an important role in diverting water from your roof and into your gutter system, and therefore are necessary in keeping water out of your home.Roof Valley irons need to be maintained to function correctly, but natural wear & tear may also occur. Over time, the metal can simply wear away, get damaged, or succumb to rusting, causing water to leak into the house. Water in the home often leads to structural problems and other costly, stressful repairs.

Our Roof valley replacement service includes removing your old, leaking, or rusted valley irons and replacing them with new modern valley irons. Proven Roofing Melbourne specialists use the new COLORBOND® or ZINCALUME® valley irons. Better materials mean a longer lifespan and more protection for your home. Our roof valleys are available in several different colors and styles to fit your home’s aesthetic.

One of the most common signs of a leaking roof a damp spot, or multiple rings, on the ceiling. Mould is also common if left untreated. Meanwhile, water seepage can also lead to water blisters, dampness or dripping.

If you happen to notice any changes to your ceiling, contact Proven roofing Melbourne for a prompt fault finding investigation and repairs.

Roof Bedding

Roof bedding is the concrete mortar that keeps roofing materials (Roof tiles & Ridge Caps) in place over many years. As with any materials when exposed on a regular basis roof bedding begins to wear down over time. When it wears down, roof tiles and ridge caps can become loose and fall from the roof, which can lead to numerous issues including roof damage and roof leaking.

Roof Pointing

Roof pointing is a strong second layer that goes over the initial roof bedding and helps to further add protection to the roof. It is incredibly important to have an expert who is aware of the specific needs of those in the Melbourne area to perform this task, as the wrong materials will not offer the same protection as those chosen for optimal performance in Melbourne weather conditions. 

Repointing roof tiles is commonly recommended to replace the cement mortar used for pointing before 1995. The cement is prone to cracking and shifting. Flexible pointing material helps to eliminate these drawbacks. Melbourne homeowners who haven’t had roof rebedding or roof repointing to their homes in the past ten years should contact a Melbourne roofing repair specialist or us at Proven Roofing to schedule this important maintenance task.

Roof Ridge weep holes MELBOURNE

Roof repairs, roof restorations, roof replacements

Weep holes are made in the lowest point in the base of the tile. weep holes are used to allow water to escape from behind the bedding and pointing of the ridge cap. Water back-flowing occurs if there are no weep holes, and the water rises up toward the highest point and then into your roof resulting in staining of ceilings etc.

– All ridge tiles on concrete roofs need to have weep holes.

– Terracotta roof tiles need weep holes when the top course under the ridge cap has been cut short to fit neatly and have full coverage under the ridge cap. A full length terracotta tile that is laid under the ridge cap will not require weep holes as a full terracotta tile has a water course at the top edge to prevent it from pooling back.

Here at Proven Roofing we ensure all our work is of a high quality, and we definitely make sure weep holes are present in all work we do.

Leaking Chimney Flashing Repair Melbourne

Homes with chimneys require more maintenance than homes without. If you’ve recently encountered a chimney leak or noticed rust stains inside your firebox, you may need to repair your chimney flashing. Chimney flashing is a type of roof flashing that creates a waterproof seal to protect your chimney and roof from water damage and penetration.

Chimney flashing can become weakened over time. When it does, it’s important to hire a roofing repair contractor who will be able to replace chimney flashing to ensure your roof continues to be protected to the level it needs to be. Sometimes all it will take is a minor repair applied at the right time to save the repair bill from growing into the thousands.

Signs You Need to Repair Your Chimney Flashing

Properly installed chimney or roof flashing can last up to 30 years. Lifespan is determined by surrounding details like where you live, shape and size of your chimney, and the materials used to make it. Knowing what year your house was constructed helps keep track of the life of your chimney.

Signs it is time for a chimney flashing replacement include:

  • Leaking from the inside or outside of the chimney
  • Sounds and evidence of dripping, like puddles
  • Discolored bricks
  • Rust stains
  • Water stains on interior ceilings or walls adjoining the chimney
  • Visible gaps in the caulking around the flashing

If you believe your roof flashing requires some attention, it’s best to call in an expert. An experienced Melbourne roof professional will be able to save you time and money in the long run by installing flashing that’s up to the task of protecting your roof, your home and your family.
