Roof Restoration Perth

Roof restoration can mean a handful of different things, depending on who you’re asking. From my personal experience, directing Roof Repairs Perth WA, I’ve seen a lot of Perth roofers advertising Roof restoration services - in which the roof does get ‘restored’. But - and a big BUT, the roof still needs heavy repairs!

What good is ‘restoring’ your roof for the sake of looking pretty if the underlying issues haven’t been touched up? I almost see it as a waste of a homeowner’s hard earned money.

Instead, we usually recommend and specialise in roof repairs services to our clients. And only then, if it’s absolutely necessary do we suggest a full roof restoration. For more information please visit our page on roof repairs.

Now having said that --

What is roof restoration?

It’s best to walk you through the process so that you get a clear understanding.
Roof restoration is a process in which a roofer will first pressure clean, or jet wash, your roof. And (hoping they’re a decent roofer) will clean up after themselves, as it gets quite messy and can clog up your gutters, downpipes, and even your garden.

Next, it’s the in-between step and possibly the most important step that I see being skipped by many Perth roofers advertising ‘roof restorations’. And because of that, we end up having to do the work that the homeowner thought they had already paid for with a previous roofer.

The step I’m talking about is the actual repairing, or restructuring of the roof. The roofer will conduct a close inspection of the roof and the issues with it. The most common issues we see is that the ridge caps need repointing. This will prevent future issues and give more years to the life of your roof.

Now, while it’s not always necessary, if there seems to be an issue with the bedding (the mortar cement underneath the ridge caps) then your roof will need some good old fashioned re-bedding also. For more information on re-bedding please click here.
So while it may seem like a no brainer, repointing & rebedding seem to be overlooked by a lot of Perth roofers advertising roof restoration services - so buyer beware when you hear this term being used loosely. As I’ve said before, there’s countless times where we’ve had to come and do this crucial step, after a client of ours has already paid for a roof 'restoration' earlier.

Finally, after everything has been touched up - your roofer will give your roof multiple coats of fresh (hopefully premium quality) paint and your roof will finally be ‘restored’. Looking good as new. Something to note: as Australia has one of the highest UV ratings in the world - using the right paint is a must.

All in all, this is what roof restoration is, or what it’s supposed to be. At Roof Repairs Perth WA, we have a different approach to restorations. We usually encourage our clients to let us repair the roof first (repointing & rebedding) and then, only if it’s absolutely necessary would we go for a whole entire roof restoration process. You may ask why? Well, if you can save yourself $1000s listening to our recommendations then - why not?

It’s as simple as that.
