During a recent repair at Yagoona we discovered the importance of using qualified tradesmen. We often receive calls relating to leaks in an area where the tiled roof meets an iron roof. When installed correctly a slash tray or apron flashing (a custom made flashing) will fix most problems in this area.

 

Stage 1.

After firstly removing the existing tray, a prime example of what not to do is demonstrated here where expandable foam filler has been used. This prevents the flow of water and creates and back up of water which in this case is the cause of the leaks.

Stage 2.

This photo demonstrates the pooling water  and the foam causing a damming effect, which results in the water dropping over the rear of the sheets penetrating internally. Sometimes it pays to call in the professionals.

Stage 3.

After exposing the leak we remove the existing tray and foam. We also increase the turn up on the rear of the roofing sheets.

This will allow for the water to flow and will stop the current issues.

Stage 4.

A longer custom made splash tray is carefully marked. By increasing the length of the tray this greatly reduces the chance of a recurring problem. The tray is made from colorbond and is colour matched to suit.

Stage 5.

The tray is then screwed into position, the roof tiles relayed and the ridgecapping rebedded and repointed. This process is a relatively common roof repair undertaken by Roofline. We service Sydney wide so call for a free inspection.
