Consider Roof Restoration To Extend The Life Of Your Roof

If you are trying to extend the life of your roof and avoid needing to get a new roof installed, you may want to consider roof restoration. Having a company restore your roof will help to extend the life of your roof. It is less expensive than a new roof installation. There is less mess because the entire roof does not need to be torn off and replaced. This saves in labor and waste costs. Instead, a contractor will come and undertake an inspection to see if any roofing repairs need to be made and any sediment build up or spots that need to be cleaned. Then a sealant and coating will be applied to the roof which will protect it and keep it looking new.

There are of course different methods for the different roof styles.

When restoring a tile roof in Australia the contractor will deep clean the roof and make sure that all algae and dirt spots are removed. When it is completely clean the contractor will inspect the roof for any broken tiles and make the necessary repairs. A sealer and heat reflective coating will then be applied.

When restoring an ashpalt shingle roof the contractor checks for any leaks or serious damage. If the roof looks sound then it will be washed and cleaned using a low pressure wash. Once it is cleaned a primer and sealant will be added to protect the shingles and help the roof to last longer.
When restoring a metal roof the contractor will check for any leaks and repair those immediately. If any metal needs to be replaced this is the next step to be completed. The surface will then be prepared for the coating. The coating will help to protect the roof and can lower cooling costs by helping to bring the temperature down in your home.

If you are looking to do any improvements on your home in Melbourne and to avoid expensive repairs, consider roof restoration as a cost effective way to keep your roof in great condition.
