Having a complete roof restoration not only looks great, but adds value to your home. When you look at a house 40% of what you see is the roof, so it makes sense to keep it in tip top order.
Apart from the aesthetic appeal, a complete roof restoration is an essential part of maintenance, keeping your home water tight in winter and reflecting the hot sun in summer.
The process is similar with all roof types:
Asbestos - a full inspection is carried out, all valleys and flashings checked. Any cracks are sealed. The roof is then cleaned, sealed and painted. Products used are specifically manufactured for asbestos roofs. When painting asbestos roofs, strict guidelines need to be adhered to under the health (asbestos) regulations act 1992.
Tin/Colorbond - A full inspection is carried out. All valley and flashings are checked. The roof is resecured where necessary. It is then high pressure cleaned (jet cleaning). The roof is then sealed with an anti-corrosive agent and two top coats of paint applied.
Cement Tiles/Terracotta - A full roof inspection is carried out. All valleys and flashing checked. Any cracked or chipped tiles are replaced. The roof is then high pressure cleaned (jet cleaning). All ridge capping is re-bedded where necessary, and the entire capping is then repointed. Your roof is now sealed and two top coats of paint applied.
Glazing - When restoring clay tiles, some people opt for glazing. The process is the same as above but instead of using paint the tiles are coated with TerraGlaze, restoring them to better than new condition!
Jet Cleaning - High pressure cleaning to prepare your roof for the application of proctective coatings. This is the only method which ensures the removal of ground in dirt and any fungus growths which have accumulated over the years.
Heat Reflective Coatings - Benefit from the first Australian eco-friendly roof coating. Reduces summer cooling costs, with its remarkable heat reflective properties. Suitable for water collection and contributes to compliance of 5 star house ratings.
