Our History

Residential Roofing Solutions is the fourth generation of the Pedley Family plumbing business established by George Pedley & his eldest son, also George (Originally "G.E. PEDLEY & SONS PLUMBERS"), in Ipswich in 1927. They commenced the business from the family home at Sydney Street, Brassall in Ipswich where they set up an operation based primarily on roofing, guttering, and water tank manufacturing.

All of the original machinery e.g.; corrugated sheet roller, sheet metal folder and the original guillotine and sheet metal rollers, has been passed on to a local museum. A proper workshop was established in Brisbane Street, West Ipswich, which was used, by George and his plumber sons George, Cecil, Ron and Bill until around the early 1960's.

With George well & truly retired, Cecil becoming ill and Ron moving north to pursue his own plumbing business, Bill closed up this shop and relocated all the equipment to his home at 12 Teape Street, Silkstone where he continued on with the old skills particularly tank building, which with the help of his sonDarryl, formed a large part of the business.

Cecil's two sons Fred and Des also became plumbers as did Fred's son Ashley.

The Pedley Plumbing business was handed over to Bill's middle son, Darryl in the early 1980's. Darryl carried on over almost 20 years but struck personal and financial difficulty and was forced to close the plumbing business in 2007.

Recently the business has re-structured and is now under the managementl of Ross Pedley who has had practical and administrative involvement in the business, particularly during the 2000's.

George Pedley
11/06/1884 - circa 1965.
 Bill Pedley
14/12/1919 - 20/05/1998
