Everything You Need To Know About Tile Roof Restoration
What is a roof restoration?
Like most things in life, over time, your roof will degrade over time and lose its capacity to function and reduce its street appeal. A roof restoration is the process of repairing, cleaning and painting your roof so that it looks and functions like new.
We have a unique 6 step process so that every roof restoration is done to the highest standards. This includes tile repairs and replacement, a professional roof clean is performed, rebedding and repointing of tiles and ridge caps, a coat of sealer is applied and then two coats of our leading roof membrane that comes in many modern exciting colours. We also perform a leave no trace clean-up to leave your property looking just as we found it but with a beautiful new looking roof.
How do I know if I need my roof restored?
There are a multitude of reasons why you may need or want your roof restored. Some of the main reasons are to increase the efficiency and functionality of your roof. It is also a great way to improve the overall look of your home or property and can potentially add thousands of dollars of value to your home.
Another reason that we often get is that you might want to change the colour of your roof. We have an extensive range of exciting modern colours to choose from. This is also an excellent time to have your roof inspected, maintained, and serviced.
How long does it take to restore a roof?
A typical roof restoration can be completed within 1-3 days, assuming that there are no setbacks such as bad weather. Our inspection process is usually thorough enough to uncover any issues that could cause any delays in the work.
Actual roof size, accessibility, height, and site access are all factors that can affect job duration. Weather can also have an impact on the duration of the job as well as the availability of specific materials.
Do you have the required licenses and insurance?
Yes, not only are all of our tradespeople highly trained and experienced we are fully insured and licensed, giving you complete piece of mind.
What signs should I look for to see if my roof needs to be restored?
There are a few signs you can look for that indicate your roof is not functioning properly to the untrained eye.
- Water leaking – If you have any leaks, such as puddles, this is a sure sign that your roof is failing.
- Discoloration – You may not have puddles, but water can sit on the topside of your ceiling and cause discoloration, indicating a roof leak. A roof leak is also indicated by discoloured down walls.
- Mould – Excessive mould growth could indicate that there is a problem with your roof.
Tiles that are cracked or broken should be repaired as soon as possible.
Aesthetically, you may notice that your roof is dirty or may have excessive mould growth, which is a good indication that you should have a professional look at it.
Finally, even if nothing appears to be wrong with your roof, it’s a good idea to get a health check if it’s been a long time since anyone has looked at it. If you should have any further questions or simply believe now is the time to have your roof inspected, please feel free to contact us today.
