So What Exactly Is Roof Restoration?
Roof restoration is essentially what it sounds like, a way to restore a worn down, dirty and tired tile roof, and have it looking almost brand new. You’d be very surprised how different your house looks with a restored roof, and will be astonished at how much it’s value can increase cause of this, not to mention making the neighbors feel a bit jealous!
The roof restoration process has a few different steps involved and this ensures that even the most run down, moss covered, and aged looking roof can have new life breathed into it in just a few days. Here’s how it goes…
1 – Roof Cleaning – The first step is to thoroughly clean your roof using a high pressure hose to remove dirt, moss and stains from your tiles.
2 – Bedding & Tile Repair – Bedding is essentially a cement mortar that keeps your tiles in place and over time this can become cracked or missing which can allow water and wind to enter your roof cavity. We’ll replace and fix all of this whilst at the same time replacing or repairing any missing or broken tiles that we may find.
3 – Gutter Repairs – In some situations (not all of them but some) we may also need to clean and repair parts of your guttering, this will depend on the condition of your roof and gutters.
4 – Roof Painting – The final step is to apply a primer, a sealer and a coat of paint to your roof tiles. Not only does this protect your roof but it also gives it a fresh and clean appearance and we can apply any colour that you like, which means you can really transform the look of your house.
The end result is that your roof looks essentially brand new and will safely protect your house and family from wind, rain and other elements.
