When you think about plumbing, roof plumbing is likely not the first thing that comes to mind. However, having the right drainage and plumbing systems on your roof is vital for the roof’s long-term effectiveness. It also helps decrease the need for roof maintenance as well.

A roof plumber specializes in ensuring that water and other precipitation drains from the roof effectively, whether from a plumbing system incorporated into the roof or through a gutter system.

Venting is also vital to ensure that you do not have moisture issues in your roof, either. Vents in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry area allow warm moisture to escape without harming your roofing system while also creating comfortable living conditions in your home.

There is a significant difference between a roof plumber and the average plumber. Roof plumbing involves work with the following systems or features.

  • Gutters
  • Downpipes
  • Roof flashing
  • Spouts
  • Rainwater tanks

Roof plumbers can also address general roof maintenance and roof leaks. Problems with your roof plumbing will cause roof leaks. While there may be issues with the roof itself, improper draining is often the underlying cause of incorrectly diverted water or other precipitation.

A roof plumber will help maintain the building’s structural integrity by ensuring that water does not pool on the roof. Roof plumbers have unique training and experience to address roofing systems, which most indoor plumbers do not have. Height training and specific knowledge about roofing systems are unique to a roof plumber.


When should you call a roof plumber?

When the building is first constructed, a roof plumber will review it and seal it so that there are no water leakage issues. However, roofs wear down over time. If you have any issues with leaking, you should definitely call a roof plumber.

If you think that you have pooling water on the roof or it is coming off the roof in just a few locations, a roof plumber may be a good resource to address those issues. Sometimes those seemingly small problems can lead to deterioration and create much more critical problems in the future.

It is also a good idea to have your roof inspected at least annually to address any problems before a leak occurs
