In the last couple of decades, The Roofing Professionals Westside has been the ‘Ghost busters’ of the Sydney roof repair game.
We have trained ourselves to seek out the causes of the most difficult of roof leaks. Then to come up with the right solutions to solve the problems.
The Roofing Professionals Westside is owned and operated by Jack Yuen from his home in Strathfield, Sydney.Jack started in this roofing business in 1999 and his biggest challenge in 2020 was not COVID19. It was a case of too many job enquiries and not enough suitably trained roofers to do the work. Read more about Jack the roofer’s story on the ABOUT US page.
In the early 2000’s I used to collect (paper) feedback forms from clients and these had valuable insights and the earliest form of a review.
Then I switched to ‘True Local”.Eventually, I just asked my clients to do a review on my website.
Then demand for our roof repair services became so heavy that I switched off the reviews. So, it has been a while since my last official review.To get a bit of history you can read all my roofing reviews HERE
When I got taken by ambulance to the Concord hospital EMERGENCY, there was a triage process that I went through. It should be a similar process for a roof leak. We call this our Ultimate roof repair checklist.
A roof leak is an emergency. But good roofers (just like good doctors) are rare. They don’t just stop what they are doing and jump to your aid.
Therefore, the best solution when your roof springs a leak is to go through a triage process. You can do a lot yourself to mitigate the damage before you need to call in anyone else.
The local SES is like the hospital emergency team. Use them first because they are the real emergency workers. Then contact your insurance company. They will be useless in an emergency – but they will play a major role in repairing your roof when the storm has passed.
Do not try to contact us. We are not set up repairing roof leaks in the rain and our response times are not good.
Instead, check out my post on “How to cope with a leaking ceiling”. If anything, it will reduce your panic.
We do not charge you anything for doing a roof inspection, determining the best solution and follow up later with a detailed quote that we will email you.There is a cost in providing quotes and I have a webpage dedicated to this topic.
When I first started my business, I used to travel all over Sydney for work. Then I got extremely busy. Time is not on my side – so I now prefer to travel less and stay closer to my home suburb of Strathfield. So, the further away from Strathfield you are, the slimmer your chances of getting me to look at your roof problems.I have a webpage that details more about which suburbs I will travel to for roof repair work.
Recently, I have roofers who live in the eastern suburbs of Sydney and they have been able to do roof inspections around where they live.
It was threatening to rain again and there was this cracked roof tile on Wendy’s roof that had caused a water drip through her light fitting in her bedroom.
I found a replacement tile in my ute and swapped it for her. I hate leaving a roof in a dangerous situation. Wendy gladly paid me $200 to stop the dangerous leak.
When I told my roofers that this was quite a common occurrence when I get called out to look at roof leaks, they were quite upset with me.
“You undervalue your services, boss. You had to go all the way out there – and you did not pick up any work for us. How can you afford to keep paying us good wages if you don’t charge enough!”I had to agree.
My nominal charge now for a simple fix to stop a leaking roof is $400.Roof repair costs will vary substantially depending on the work involved – More on my roof repair cost webpage…
We are only a small roof repair centric business – and we get inundated every time there is a storm. We will struggle to go out and do enough roof inspections when this happens.
My roofers get delayed when it rains and their work schedule is very weather dependent.
It usually takes a couple of weeks before we can take a look at your roof.
Then it will be another 3 to 4 weeks before my roofers can do the roof repair work.Waiting times can be quite variable and it is best to check out my ‘how soon can I get my roof fixed?’ webpage for the latest.
There is a reason a lot of good books have a ‘TABLE of CONTENTS”.
I have created a similar table so that you can browse the content on this website and click on your interest.
Go to my ‘SITE CONTENTS’ page to start. But beware, the average visitor spends more than 10 minutes on this website and that excludes the time watching our youtubes.Go get a life as soon as you are done here…
