What is involved in a typical roof restoration?

A roof restoration involves replacing cracked, broken or defective tiles, repairing or replacing of flashings and valleys, re-bedding and pointing ridge capping. The next step involves cleaning the tiles this can be done with an anti fungicidal wash and a high pressure clean. A sealer coat is then applied to your roof along with two coats of a finishing colour to your required taste.

Restoring your roof vs. re-roofing

A roof restoration is a cheaper alternative to a re-roof when your roof tiles are still sound. You can have the appearance of a brand new roof at a fraction of the price. Modern roof coatings have heat reflective properties which help with cooling your home in summer. It is important to remember though that if you roof tiles are drummy or fretting due to old age a roof restoration is not recommended and we still advise a re-roof instead.

The different types of roof restoration

Cement/ Concrete Tile

Cement or concrete tiles lend themselves easily to a roof restoration because most concrete tiles fade with time and provided the tiles are still sound a concrete tiled roof can look as good as new after restoration.

Terracotta Tile Roof Restoration

A terracotta tile roof can also be restored. Unglazed terracotta tiles can be repainted, however we do not recommend recolouring terracotta tiles the natural beauty of terracotta should last a lifetime. However cleaning a terracotta roof, removing dirt, mould and moss is a good idea. Excessive mould or moss can make a roof leak.
