1. What is a make safe?
A make safe is a temporary repair of a roof leak and may be as simple as changing a tile, or there may be further works required for permanent rectification.
Included in this service is:
• Full inspection of the leak area and roof.
• Rectification on the day (if possible).
• If we are unable to complete a full repair on the day, we will do all temporary repairs that we can and provide you with a quote for what is remaining.
With your quote you will also receive photos of the temporary works and all remaining works as well as maintenance found. A satellite map showing the
required repairs and maintenance will also be provided.
• We also provide a separate quote for any recommended maintenance.
2. How long does it take to get a quote?
Quote times vary depending on the scope of works to be done. Most maintenance and make safe works will be returned within 48 hrs. More complex quotes may require
material prices and further site visits, which will extend the response times. If you are waiting for a quote, please contact our friendly team on 02 9674 4556 to
get an update.
3. Do you install harness points and safety access ladder brackets?
Defiantly. Ivy Contractors, the roofing specialists can supply and install all safety systems to both metal and tile roofs. We also supply site maps and certification certificates.
4. Do you install VeLux skylights and sky domes?
Yes, we can supply and install the latest VeLux & Skydome Skylights available on the market. We also offer dome replacement and flashing maintenance.
5. Are we able to get a roof inspection report?
Yes. Knowing exactly what condition your commercial or strata roof is in isn’t always easy, which is why we recommend an inspection report - a thorough inspection of all the
components of your roof, including but not limited to roof coverings, fixtures and fittings, flashings and cappings, penetrations, skylights, gutters and down pipes, insulation
and drainage. Photos and an aerial map are also provided to indicate problem areas to make the descriptions easier to understand. You will be provided with an explanation of all
defects, corrective action required and the cost of the corrective action, or costings for replacement.
