Our Roof Restoration Services
Whether your roof is made from cement or terracotta, the experts at Roof Guard roofing will help restore it to an excellent condition. The process and services involved in roof restoration include the following:
Roof Inspection – A qualified Roof Guard team member meets the client at an arranged time at their Canterbury home. We’ll prepare a detailed inspection report from our findings during the roof inspection. We will go over this with you in a way that you can fully understand the terminology. We will decide on a course of action together based on this discussion.
Colour Selection and Painting (for cement roofs) – For cement based roofing we supply the client with a colour chart nice and early to ensure we can order your desired paint colour in time.
Property Care As We Go – We will clean, take all necessary OH&S precautions and care for your property as when your roof is restored and the job is complete, there are no remnants left behind!
Installation of Guard Rail – Once we have the go ahead it will be time to book in the restoration. In most cases, the roof will need to be raised so that we can safely and legally start the roof restoration. We will usually get the rail booked in a couple of days before we commence.
Replace Broken Tiles – Before any cleaning or high-pressure cleaning takes place we will remove and replace any broken tiles. We can almost always match the tiles with the exact same replacements.
High Pressure Cleaning – The best way to remove years of dirt, grime and contaminants from your roof. This stage is also important to allow the paint to bond properly to your roof afterwards.
Roof Repair Work – We’ll take care of things like the renewal of old valley irons, the inspection and repair of all flashings, skylight repairs etc.
Bedding & Pointing – This often includes the removal of the old mortar and cement work. After old bedding is removed, the new bedding foundation is laid and ridge cappings are put into place with the help of a bedding frame. Once this has dried we apply our flexible pointing compound to all ridge cappings and gable tiles.
Final Washdown and Cleanup – After the roof repairs and care work is completed but prior to painting is the final washdown where we complete a full blowdown of the roof, and if necessary a secondary rinse with the high pressure washers. This is to remove any remaining debris or foreign matter before we paint your roof. After painting, our final cleanup will include a final inspection of your roof and property and removal of any rubbish and debris from the site.
