Norma switched on the light in the spare bedroom to find that there was water leaking through the light fitting. She was very concerned and she searched the internet for a plumber in Newtown.
Stewart the plumber arrived and was able to see that the roof sheet was rusted through and needed replacing. There had been a long period of heavy rain in Sydney and this highlighted a problem with the gutters overflowing and a leak in the corrugated iron roof.
Stewart organised a local supplier to deliver the required roof sheets whilst he attended to the blocked gutter. He cleaned out some dirt and debris and was surprised to discover an old cardboard chip packet had become lodged in the downpipe thus preventing water from running causing an overflow. He cleared the blockage and tested the downpipe with water from the garden hose.
Once the roof sheets arrived, he replaced them and removed all of the rubbish from site. Norma was overjoyed that the leak was fixed and was impressed with the prompt professional service she received from the initial phone call to the Office, through to the courtesy and friendliness of the tradesman.
