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 two sons, Darryl & Ross, formed a large part of the business.
Cecil's two sons Fred and Des also became plumbers; Fred having passed away only a few years ago and Des still carrying on his own business in the Hervey Bay area.
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.
Bill's youngest son Ross has now re-established the old business based on the skills developed by his Grandfather and Father. Ross himself has had immense practical involvement in the business, particularly during the 1970's, and he is the holder of a Degree of Bachelor Of Engineering (Civil) from The University of Queensland and a Certificate III in Roof Plumbing from Yeronga Tafe. Ross also has 20 years of management and customer relations experience having worked for several large companies in the construction industry in senior management and sales positions from 1980 until 1999.

(Go to the Pedley Family Tree)
11/06/1884 - circa 1965.
14/12/1919 - 20/05/1998
26/09/1957 and still going strong.
Ross and his wife, Deb purchased a property at Bundamba near Ipswich in late 2002, which they have developed into an impressive office facility for their roofing company, Residential Roofing Solutions.
Ross relinquished his role as a co-director of Pedley Plumbing in early 2005 and All Roofing Solutions in 2008. Ross and Deb decided it was time to take the business to the next level in order to maintain and improve on their family's philosophy that all customers should be treated with honesty & respect and not be just taken for granted as a source of income....and so they parted company with their business partner, and Residential Roofing Solutions was born.
