Make first impressions count with a roof restored by Modern roofing. It’s often said that you don’t get a second chance to make a great first impression.

A roof restoration changes the external appearance of your house immediately, transforming the look of your roof back to new – giving it a fresh, well cared for appearance. While a newly restored roof may be able to add to the overall value of your home, in a competitive real estate market it can also help you to sell your home quicker. Increasing the curb appeal of your home with a roof restoration will make your property more attractive to buyers.

What does a Modern roof restoration involve?
A Modern roof restoration is a complete solution to transforming your home and restoring it to its former glory. Modern will replace every damaged or broken tile, pressure clean your roof to remove dirt, moss and fungus and – if necessary – re-bed capping tiles.

How does Modern’s roofing technology differ from competitors?
Modern employs a specially-designed and manufactured ‘Supablock’ roof tile coating for high quality and longevity in all of our roof restorations and replacements. Supablock’s special ceramic pigments reflect the sun’s heat, reducing the temperature of the roof’s surface and saving you money on running costly air conditioners by reducing the heat indoors. Supablock’s high quality, synthetic colour also ensures longer lasting, fade and chalk resistant colour, as well as special chemical additives to ensure quick, proper curing under a variety of weather conditions.
Do We Fix leaking Roofs?
Leaky roofs are a common occurrence, usually caused by hail stones, fallen branches or simply a lack of regular maintenance. By following a leak backwards from the drip up through the roof, the source of the leak can be identified. Modern Roofing is your first point of call to repair, restore or replace the roof. Modern Roofing can perform all manner of services from simply replacing the broken tiles or re-bedding ridge caps to high pressure roof cleaning and water proofing.
Other Roofing Questions
Are steel roofs louder than tiled roofs during storms or attract lightning?
No. In fact, many customers report their new steel roof to be quieter than the tiled roof they replaced. A metal roof does not attract lightning, or increase the likelihood of your home being struck by lightning.
What pitch can I put roof tiles on?
The minimum pitch of a roof to lay tiles is 15 degrees, but you must also consider several factors such as the length of the rafter, wind speed and type of tiles.
Are both concrete and terracotta tiles appropriate in coastal environments?
Concrete and terracotta tiles can be used in a variety of environments. Coastal environments are perfect for both concrete and terracotta, which are designed to endure the wind, seaspray and salty air of the ocean areas.
What is Modern’s Supablock roof coating?
Supablock is the leading roofing coat available on the market today, specially designed for cement-tiled roofs in Australian conditions. Supablock technology contains properties of special ceramic pigments that reflect the sun’s heat, reducing roof surface temperature and lessening the need for air conditioning. New and exclusive to Modern, Supablock carries a seven-year guarantee.
What is pressure cleaning?
Using highly pressurised water, we remove dirt, moss, lichen and fungus from your roof without the use of harsh chemicals.
What is re-bedding?
Bedding is a sand and cement mixture laid to secure the ridge capping in place. In time, the cement can crack or fall out, in which case re-bedding is required.
What is flexible pointing?
Flexible pointing is a rubberised compound applied on top of bedding. While giving your ridge caps a sharp, finished look, flexible pointing won’t crack like cement pointing, ensuring greater
What is “sarking”?
Sarking involves laying a flexible membrane under the roof battens before installing a new roof. Sarking can reflect up to 95% of radiant heat entering your roof space and provide thermal insulation. This can also minimize condensation, reducing the chance of staining and mould on the ceiling and blocking airborne dust from the home.
