How much does roof restoration cost in Australia?
Generally (and all of our answers are generally-speaking without factoring in any variables which may affect a regular quote), you will be looking from around $2,500 for a full roof restoration – that’s for an averaged-sized Australian house. Cost is also usually by the square metre, with the price going down for larger areas – depending on the circumstances.
How long does a roof restoration take?
This obviously depends on factors such as roof size, weather and what repairs are needed to be done in the restoration process but generally, it takes 3-10 to complete a Melbourne roof restoration.
How do you restore a tiled roof?
A roof restoration process can include all or some of the following:
- Repairs – the most important aspect of the restoration process and is usually why you’re getting a roof restoration done in the first place
- Pressure Clean – have your roof looking brand new again and clean off all the dirt which has accumulated on the roof for months or even years
- Re-bedding and pointing – arguably one of the most important procedures in the roof restoration process as this pretty much ensures that a roof restoration won’t be needed in a very long time if done properly
- Filler coat (if needed)
- Top coats
- Hand painting, cutting in and drying
Do roof tiles need to be sealed?
100% they do. Rain water or harsh weather conditions won’t usually make concrete tiles become porous but it’s always a good idea to seal all concrete roof tiles in order to protect your roof and reduce any maintenance costs.
Why do concrete roof tiles crack?
Simply due to improper installation, mishandling, misuse or severe impact/force which includes people walking on them. For a tile to suddenly have the weight of a human being on it when for the past months or years all it’s had is rain, it may succumb to the sudden impact of greater weight.
What causes roof tiles to lift?
Wind pressure is the number one reason for tiles getting lifted off and it’s not due to it being ‘blown’ off by the wind but more to do with the forces of pressure surrounding them. Pressure underneath roof tiles results in a positive pressure on roof tiles and the negative pressure above the tiles causes them to be sucked upwards. This is more common for lower pitched roofs.
Can you DIY a roof restoration?
Depends how you value your time and money. Not to mention the severity of the repairs required. But the answer to the question is yes you can DIY a roof restoration. Make sure you know the weather forecast in advance as you don’t want a storm to come pummeling through mid-DIY now 🙂
