Are leaves clogging up your gutters?
Do you have wet mould marks on your homes ceiling?
These are the issues Master Roofing Australia addressed today, installing gutter guard and re-pointing a roof @ Shailer Park.
The homes gutters were filled with pine needles from nearby overhanging branches. This was causing the gutters to block and the flow of rain water to overflow the gutter instead of being fed down into the downpipes. The solution was to install mesh Gutter Guard to keep those nasty pine needles out and keep the water flowing!
The ceiling inside the home was starting to show severe signs of water entry and mould growth caused by cracked, porous cement mortar which was starting to fall away from the ridge caps. The solution was to re-point all ridge capping with new flexible pointing which is prefect for the humid weather of QLD. Flexible pointing expands and contracts with the daily weather conditions, so it will not breakdown and crack like standard sand and cement mortar mix.
The owners of the home were happy that two simple roofing solutions could fix the major water damage they were experiencing.
