Roof restoration on a metal roof
Most newly built homes have metal roofs. Over time, corrosion can set in and quickly spread on a tin roof. During a roof restoration on a metal roof, products are applied to help prevent corrosion spreading and damaged or rusty roof screws and fittings are also replaced to maintain the roofs quality and function. A metal roof is also high pressure cleaned to remove dirt and stains. A roof restoration also involves applying two coats of Dulux AcraTex Roof Membrane to the roofs surface to provide the ultimate protection, durability and protection for your metal roof.
Roof restoration on a tiled roof
Many established and older homes have a tiled roof. A tiled roof is restored in a similar way to a metal roof where a thorough inspection is performed and any broken or cracks in roof tiles are repaired and missing roof tiles replaced. A tiled roof is re-pointed using ridge capping and a flexible acrylic pointing mix.
Roof tiles are high pressure cleaned using a high-pressure before having a double coat of Dulux AcraTex Roof Membrane applied to the entire surface. Prior to application, the entire roof area is sealed to ensure a strong adhesion.
