Our roofs are directly exposed to mother nature, from the scorching summer sun to the squally winter winds. No matter the material of your roof, in order to ensure its function and longevity it is crucial to have it inspected, maintained and repaired regularly. The team of professionals at ROOFWest Roof Restorations have the expertise, experience and equipment to ensure your roof stays in the best condition possible. Read on to discover the two most common types of roofs and how they are restored.
- Tin Roofs
- Tiled Roofs
A popular choice for those building new homes, tin roofs offer a wide range of colour and style options with some people choosing a colour and design to make their tin roof a focal point of their home. A regular inspection of a tin roof will ensure there is no damaged tin. Tin that is damaged can lead to leaks in the roof which can then enter the structures inside your ceiling causing other costly issues to occur.
Corrosion can set in and spread quickly on a tin roof, so a professional inspection sees primers applied to create a barrier to stop rust spreading. Damaged or rusty roof screws and fittings are also replaced to maintain the roofs quality and function. A tin roof is cleaned by using a high-pressure hose to remove dirt and stains. Professionals have the expertise and experience to ensure this process is done safely plus being environmentally conscious to
A roof restoration also involves applying two coats of Dulux AcraTex Roof Membrane to the roofs surface. This product provides ultimate protection, durability and protection from the weather and gives customers a 10 year materials warranty.
Older homes are more likely to have a tiled roof. A tiled roof adds character to an older home and can be restored by a colour change to create a new look and feel. A tiled roof inspection involves a thorough look at the roof identifying and replacing any tiles that are damaged or cracked plus any cement or bedding that is loose or missing. Moss can often be seen when inspecting a tiled roof which indicates moisture has spread.
The same way as it is done with a tin roof, roof tiles are cleaned using a high-pressure hose with safety and the environment being the highest priority. A tiled roof is re-bed and re-pointed where needed using ridge capping and a flexible acrylic pointing mix.
As with a tin roof, a double coat of Dulux AcraTex Roof Membrane is applied to the roofs surface. Prior to application, the entire roof area is sealed to ensure a strong adhesion. A range of speciality primers are available to suit specific conditions too.
