Roof plumbing, often referred to as stormwater plumbing, refers to any job that involves flashing or roof coverings, any part of a drainage system that collects or discharges rainwater, or any stormwater pipe connection to rainwater tanks. It also involves connecting stormwater downspouts to your drainage disposal point.
Essentially, all plumbing work associated with roofing, gutters, and downspouts falls under "roof plumbing." However, the roofers themselves, made of concrete, non-metallic shingles, wood, etc., are installed and repaired by roofers and are not included in the term "roof plumbing."

When do you need one?
During the process of building a new home, you may need a roofing plumber for a variety of jobs, including:
Design and installation of roof drainage systems
Measurement, manufacture and installation of gutters, downspouts and rainwater evacuation systems.
Construction of roof flashing, duct joints, angle gutters and stops.Installation of rainwater tanks and other collection devices. Completion of construction of street sidewalk stormwater drainage or stormwater drainage system.
Maintenance and repair of gutters and downspouts
In addition to new construction jobs, rooftop plumbers are also needed for maintenance and repair jobs that involve stormwater and gutters. Gutters and downspouts are designed so that rainwater from your roof drains properly away from the building structure and its immediate surroundings.
Any water running down the building's foundation could cause serious damage, including:
- Leaks on the roof,
- Erosion of foundations and properties, and
- Mold and mildew problems
