What Exactly Is A Roof Restoration?
The list of responsibilities a homeowner has is a long one. Of course, you are responsible for maintaining almost everything under your roof, but have you ever considered what maintenance your actual roof might need?
If you notice the occasional leak, feel a strange draft or just haven’t had a look at what’s going on up there, it might be a good idea to have a professional inspect what’s going on.
Modern offers a complimentary 33 point roofing inspection that will help determine if your roof requires some extra attention and catch any early signs of significant problems that could save you lots in the long run.
If there are signs of any significant damage to your roof, your Modern Roofing Specialist might suggest a Roof Restoration.
So What exactly is a roof restoration?
Roof restorations are a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to a total roof replacement that goes far beyond a quick roof repair.
The first step is to ensure the roof is completely watertight. All leaks are repaired, faulty and broken tiles are replaced along with any leaky roof sheets, loose screws, nails and valley irons.
Your roof restoration specialist will then inspect and replace any ridge capping tiles.
Any faulty bedding mortar is replaced, and all capping tiles are repointed with a Flexible pointing compound to help prevent any future movement of capping tiles.
Your roof will then be deep cleaned. This is an essential step to ensure that the paint adheres properly to the tiles when it is painted, and no dust and dirt gets trapped in the tiles.
Then, a final clean of the roof is completed to ensure there is no leftover residue, and the fun part begins!
Your roof is then painted to your colour preference and will be looking better than ever.
In the final step, two coats of Supa Bloc protection are applied to provide ultimate UV protection to your home.
