Every now and then, I get this question over the phone: “Can you repair my roof leak…and How much to repair the roof leak?”
The first part is easy. We can almost repair any roof leak that you can throw at us.
The second part of the question is a bit harder to find an answer for.
How much to repair a roof leak in Sydney depends on a whole range of factors:
- Sometimes it is simply a cracked roof tile.
- Or it is a crack on a flashing.
- Or a hole on a metal roof.
- Then maybe it is a major problem that involves replacement of flashings, a box gutter, roof replacement etc…
When I get onto a leaking roof, I often find simple problems like cracked roof tiles, cracks in flashings or rust holes causing the roof leaks. I can often replace a roof tile or repair it, and I can also patch cracks and holes during the inspection. My nominal charge for an easy on the spot repair is about $200.
…Anything that requires me to organise a team of roofers to return to do a repair job will be quoted. A small repair job by a team of roofers would start from about $1,000.
Anything more complex will cost more.
Because all our roof repair jobs are guaranteed for 7 years, the quoted price includes for any warranty work – since some leaks may take multiple attempts to eliminate.
