Roof Restoration

A roof is the first line of defence in protecting most people’s greatest asset – your home! It is recommended that your roof should be maintained at least every ten years.


The purpose of restoring a roof is to firstly fix the problems and then fix the cause.

What is Roof Restoration

“Roof Restoration” is a term that is used to describe the process of cleaning, repairing and re-coating a roof. Roof restoration is beneficial for just about all types of roofs including Colorbond, Zincalume, Galvanised iron, Decromastic, Terracotta tile and of course Concrete tile.

How to Restore

Our roof restoration is the combination of three individual services offered by many home roofing companies:

1. Roof Repairs
2. Roof Cleaning
3. Roof Painting

Tile Roof Restoration Process

  • Replace all cracked and broken tiles.

  • Pressure clean the entire roof. Using a water blaster that produces 4,500 psi of pressure, this will remove all mould and lichen, remove all dirt, and strip much of the existing surface.

  • Remove ridge caps and re-bed if required. If your existing bedding is even a tiny bit loose, we’ll re-bed the caps. 

  • Re-point all ridge caps with a polymer based flexible pointing mortar. This is trowelled on and because it’s a flexible mortar, will not crack with the normal movement of your home (expansion and contraction from heat and cold)

  • Apply a sealer / primer coat to the entire roof. This seals the roof, and because it “etches” in to the surface of the tile, acts as a “gripper” coat, giving maximum adhesion. 

  • Apply 2 or more acrylic membrane coats in the colour of your choice. The acrylic membrane coats are very heavy bodied (thick in consistency) and form a protective membrane for your roof. Coming in your choice of over 30 colours, this will greatly improve the appearance of your entire home.

  • Quality Control Inspection –  Your roof will be inspected every stage by the owner of the business 

Metal Roof Restoration Process

  • Treat any light rust by grinding it back and applying a potent rust converter.

  • Replace any sheets where rust is beyond treating.
     

  • Replace any loose or rusty nails or screws.

  • Pressure clean your roof.

  • Apply a metal etch primer coat.
     

  • Apply 2 or more acrylic membrane coats in the colour of your choice.
     

  • Quality Control Inspection 
     

  • Terracotta Tile Roof Restoration Process 
     

  • Replace broken tiles.
     

  • Apply a strong mould killer to the entire roof.
     

  • Pressure clean the entire roof.
     

  • Remove ridge caps and re-bed if required.
     

  • Re-point all ridge caps with a polymer based flexible pointing mortar.
