1. Roof Inspection

The first step in getting a roof restoration service is to have a professional from Roof Restorations Canberra carry out an inspection on the roof. It’s important to fully understand the extent of any damage, the age of the roof, potential structural issues, and any other problems that need to be addressed before restoration can happen. This is a great time to discuss what you would like the end product to look like if you have something particular in mind that the roofing expert can recommend. Some want a fresh modern look, for instance.

2. Cleaning

Next, we will clean the roof to find and remove any dirt, moss, algae, or general debris that has accumulated in and around the roof and guttering. This will start with removing the physical objects and obstructions but may involve pressure washing or using special chemicals to remove dirt and give the roof a modern appearance.

3. Preparation and General Roofing Repairs

Parts of the roof that are damaged will need to be repaired before the final steps. Damaged shingles, ridge capping, or tiles can be replaced, as well as reinforcing structural weak spots or rotting wood, to ensure a strong and modern roof. We have plenty of replacements on hand and can quickly request any speciality parts required. For more information you can read more about roof repairs.

4. Restoration

Once the roofing repairs are done and the roof is clean, and in full working order, we can apply the restoration materials to the roof. Firstly we apply a primer or sealant to the roof to make sure the restoration materials adhere strongly to the surface. Following this we apply a fresh coating on the roof and often, the guttering. This is often paint and sealant; offering both enhanced water protection for your roof and also that beautiful, fresh new and modern roof look.

5. Clean-up and Maintenance



The roofer will fully clean up the work area on the roof and gutters and also do some additional maintenance tasks to ensure the roof stays clean and functioning for as long possible. We may also trim overhanging tree branches or clear debris from gutters to prevent future damage and maintain the modern look of your roof.

Overall, a professional roofing fixer will take a systematic approach to diagnose and repair common problems with roofs to ensure that the recommended repairs are effective and long-lasting.

Frequently Asked Roof Restoration Questions

Roof restoration usually involves cleaning, repairing, and re-coating your roof to improve its appearance, weather resistance, and durability. We treat each roof uniquely but, the process may often include pressure washing and sometimes some repair work like re-bedding and repointing ridge caps, replacing damaged tiles before applying a protective coating.

How often should I restore my roof?

For Canberra roofing restoration frequency depends on various factors, such as the age and damage condition of the roof, the type of materials used, and weather conditions in your area. So it’s tricky to provide a general estimate. In Canberra, we recommend that roof restoration is generally carried out every 10-15 years to maintain its integrity, especially in the harsh Canberra weather!

Can roofing restorations help me save money on energy bill?

Yes, a roof restoration can undoubtedly help reduce energy costs. It creates a more energy efficient home by improving insulation, ventilation, and sealing. A well-restored roof means there will be minimal air leakage and thus less heat transferred .

This keeps your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, which reduces the need for reliance on heating and cooling systems.

How long would does roof restoration take?

Of course the boring answer is: depends on the job! Every roof is different.

The duration of a roof restoration project depends on the size of the roof, its condition, and the scope of work required. Typically, roof restoration takes between two to five days to complete, but larger projects may take longer.

Why is my roof stained?

Some people often notice a dark stain on their roof. It may look like patches of black or brown streaks. Although it typically doesn’t appear on metal roofs.

Almost all of the time, this is the build up algae.

By the time it is visible to the eye, it has already been growing for at least 3 weeks. It is most common on roofs with asphalt shingles and also roofs in humid climates.

This is quite common and is not generally perceived as a health risk. However do your own research, especially if a family members suffers from asthma or has any respiratory illness.

Although it may not be a serious health risk, the mould can eventually grow over your whole roof. If you have tiles or shingles its also possible for the mould to grow and force tiles apart. This creates an opening for water to seep into the interior of the house.

The best thing is to clean it off! However don’t try this yourself – we require special chemicals and technique to fully eliminate the mould. It’s also very dangerous to be up high on a steep roof without training and equipment! Hundreds of Australians die every year from roof accidents.

Don’t worry – we provide a roof cleaning service and quality workmanship and our team and can take care of your roof or gutters in a jiffy. Ask us for a free quote.
