When it comes to having your roof restored, many homeowners assume it is only tiled roofs that need to be restored. However, this is not the case. Metal roofs also deteriorate over time. Damage can occur and will often go un-noticed as the entire surface of your roof is not normally visible from the ground. Having your metal roof professionally restored will not only make it more aesthetically pleasing, but will ensure your roof is functioning correctly.
Read on to learn the steps involved in having your metal roof professionally restored including:
- Thorough cleaning
- Treatment and primer application
- Metal roofing membrane application
The first step in the process begins before the actual roof restoration can take place. A professional roof inspection will identify any issues or damages on your metal roof to identify what work will be involved in the process. If proceeding with your metal roof restoration, you will also choose a colour you would like your metal roof painted.
When the roof restoration process begins any necessary roof maintenance will be carried out first. Any leaks are repaired along with any unsecure roof sheets and flashings plus broken, rusted or missing nails and screws replaced.
To ensure a clean surface, a metal roof will be pressure cleaned to remove any built-up dirt and debris. This thorough cleaning of your roof surface will ensure the primer and roofing membrane, when applied, will adhere correctly.
Treatment and primer application
Just as you would prime the walls in your home before painting, a roof is no different. A primer coating is applied to a metal roofing before the roof membrane. This will ensure the best possible application and finish.
Metal roofing membrane application
The required number of coats of a metal roofing membrane are applied. To ensure the highest possible quality, it’s imperative to use a premium quality, trusted brand such as Dulux. A professional roof restoration company is trained to ensure the correct application for quality application and finish.
