You may be asking “what’s the difference between a roof plumber and your regular plumber”?

Although they both work with the distribution of water, a roof plumber has to have an additional set of skills and training. Roof plumbers need to be experts in all things stormwater, including the connection of your rainwater tank to stormwater pipes and also the set up of your internal plumbing to ensure it is utilising the collected rainwater.

Having your roofing regularly maintained and repaired by a licenced roof plumber is important for the structural integrity of your home. Gutters and downpipes are designed so that the rainwater from your roof is properly drained away from the building structure and surroundings, if the installation of these features is not executed correctly, or they become damaged over time, it can cause pooling of rain water and rotting of structural parts of you roof and foundation.
