Constant Rain Helped To Expose Roof Issues In This Kuraby Property

 by Gavin Godfrey

26 May 2021

Serendipitous occurrences provide some of the most magical circumstances in our day-to-day lives. It might be that one of your friends is in town the same weekend you need to visit your family, or it might be that you bump into the hiring manager for the job you interviewed for at the supermarket. For this homeowner, serendipity struck their life during their building inspection in Kuraby when the rain simply refused to stop pouring.

The rain was constant during this inspection in Kuraby, and it was heavy. At first look, this house seemed impressive, and we thought the rain was simply going to be a nuisance. Unfortunately, that's when we found the water gaining entry into the roof space via the tile clips that hold the tiles down, subsequently leaking all over the ceiling.

All up, our team found 23 individual issues related to water entry throughout the ceiling of the property. We used thermal imaging cameras to find where water was dripping through the ceiling, and once we got into the roof space, we spent time checking each tile and all of the insulation to find dampness and moisture, so that we would have a comprehensive idea of how widespread the water damage was.

Having found and identified these issues during this Kuraby building inspection, our client was left with a challenging choice. This damage wasn't beyond repair, but that didn't mean fixing the property would be cheap. Luckily, thanks to our fantastic building inspection in Kuraby, the client instead decided to negotiate the price of repairs into the final settlement, effectively getting the previous building owner to pay for the work. With that taken care of, the client happily purchased the property, and hasn't expressed any regrets since. If you'd like a building inspection in Brisbane, you can get in touch with our team here at Ironside Building, Pest & Pool Inspections on 0416 291 179.
