Property Maintenance Insurance Report

Bathroom Water Leak Investigation and Quote for Sydney Property Maintenance Insurance Report

As a property maintenance company it is common for property management and maintenance to include jobs where we need to act as a property maintenance inspector and write an insurance report and recommendations for building and property maintenance for our Real Estate, Strata and Hotel clients

  • We were contacted by the property manager to attend the site to investigate the carpet saturated with water
  • We carried out our maintenance inspection, identifying the cause of the water leak as being a waterproofing issue where water was leaking between the tiled hob and then making its way down through and then between the waterproofing membrane and sand and cement bed where the tiles were laid upon

We plug tested the shower area with colouring dye to pinpoint the water leak location.  After hours of investigation the leak finally made itself visible.  We then knew the main cause of the water leak and wrote our report and recommendations for the landlord and property and sent them the detailed report, evidenced below

We provided two different options of approach for the landlord to take:

  • To either remove the tiled hob and supply and install a new shower screen and retile where the existing tiled hob was

OR

  • Remove all the tiles of the complete bathroom floor and reproof and retile the entire bathroom floor (which is the absolute correct solution to ensure no further leaks in the future)

Stapleton – Maintenance and Repair (Re-Waterproofing & Tiling)

Real Estate Sydney Corrective Building Maintenance Repair for Waterproofing and Tiling

This was a job for PIA Real Estate approximately two years ago.

  • both balconies were leaking, part of a duplex
  • when it rained there was water flowing from the garage ceiling into the electrical lightning which was highly dangerous.  Both units lost power when this occurred
  • investigation conducted and maintenance plan scheduled

We:

  • removed the skirting tiles (the floor tiles were left untouched as the balconies were leaking at their perimeter only
  • had to prepare before work could commence on tiling we cleaned up the steel structure beam supporting the balcony; it had rusted and corroded because it had not been originally coated with rust protector
  • sealed the steel structure beam with rust protection paint
  • took all the perimeter tiles and re-waterproofed the whole balcony
  • worked together; the tiler relaid all the tiles over 2 day period and I repaired the ceilings of both garages and repainted the ceilings
