Most roof repairers in Sydney have no idea how to track down the cause of a roof leak AND come up with a smart solution to repair it.
And the result is... roof repairs gone wrong!
How do I know this?
Because I spent a decade being a clueless roofer. Even after spending years installing new roofs with the occasional roof repairs thrown in, I was not yet ‘complete’….
Funny how every roof repair guy I come across thinks they are ‘above average’. The truth is that we all start at incompetence and only a few of us progress to the highest skill level. Most remain at the middle ground of 'average'.
My incompetence in repairing roofs was exposed after trying to find out why roofs were leaking and a series of failures in trying to repair them. The mistakes I made were due to my 'average' skill level in the roof repairs segment of the roofing game.
And I see these same mistakes repeated by other 'average' roof repairers over the last 8 years – as I go about solving those difficult problems with leaking roofs.
The evolution to guaranteed roof repairs
My workers initially were quite concerned when I first offered a “guarantee to fix the roof leak – or your money back” – . How can we guarantee something with so many variables?
They were still a bit unsure of their level of skill in the roof repair game.
Now, my guys are comfortably locked into the mindset of a ‘guaranteed roof repair’. Because together, we have ‘been in the trenches’ and have built up an arsenal of methods to finding that leak. And to come up with solutions to fix it for good...
We had a leak with water running down our bedroom wall for quite a while but it was proving to be tricky to locate the source of the leak as it only happened now and then, when the rain and wind blew a certain way. After several attempts to locate the problem, we finally gave up trying and called Jack, who arrived promptly on the same day and fixed the problem within 30 minutes.Bjorn 2014
The challenging world of roof repairs
But there is the 80/20 rule. And it applies to us too.
For 80% of the jobs that we tackle, we get it right first time.
The other 20%?
The other 20% can take up to 80% of our time and effort. But we are in there for the long haul!
My guys have learnt over that the years that there will always be that roof leak that will stump us. We don’t have all the solutions yet. But it excites us when we see something we have not come across before.
... Because we will learn something new when we finally get the challenging roof leak fixed.
And slowly, we will redefine how roof repairs should be carried out in Sydney.
