The roof

Australian homes should meet a high standard of plumbing regulations so you should not worry about your roof collapsing in on you just after you move in. This however does not mean you are exempt from the need of having reliable plumbers as there are a number of issues that could have been well hidden from you before you made your purchase.

Broken or missing gutters

While there a bunch of DIY tutorials online, most of them do not tell you how to effectively deal with gutter issues for a more permanent fix. Certified and experienced plumbers will come in handy in this case and save you a lot of money to have the gutters replaced after a botched DIY experiment.

Leaking roof

This has got to be the oldest trick in the book; you buy a home whose roof just got a fresh coat of paint. You do not think into it as you are too excited that your home looks amazing from the outside. After a couple of weeks, you learn that the previous owner only painted the roof because it was in bad condition and he needed a quick fix. Taking on a company or individuals with reputable plumbing services track record, will do you and your home a world of good and ensure that the issue will not recur for many years to come.

  • Water heaters

Everyone loves a hot shower but not everyone loves to service their water heaters. Having a plumber occasionally (every 3 or 4 years) service your water heater will save you a couple of thousand dollars in replacement costs.

  • Tilling

While tilling may be mostly for aesthetics, what lies below the tiles isn’t. Waterproofing under the tiles may mean the difference between a cozy and stress free life in your bathrooms and kitchen or plumbing nightmares that will set you back thousands of dollars. Getting a skilled plumber ensures your tilling job is up to par and you won’t need a full kitchen or bathroom revamp
