What Is Involved In A Tile Roof Restoration?
The process involved in a tile roof restoration are as follows:
- Pressure clean the entire roof. Utilising only the best industry standard in machinery, including a Spitwater Pressure cleaning machine which produces 4,000 psi of pressure, this will remove all mould and lichen, remove all dirt, and strip much of the existing surface.
- Replace all cracked and broken tiles.
- Remove ridge caps and re-bed if required. If your existing bedding shows signs of wear and tear or deterioration, we will rebed and recap all rdiges. This process involves removing them, laying a new concrete bed, and re-laying all the caps using a bedding frame to get nice straight lines.
- Re-point all ridge caps with a polymer based flexible pointing mortar. This is trowelled on and because it is a flexible mortar, will not crack with the normal movement of your home (expansion and contraction from heat and cold)
- Apply a sealer / primer coat to the entire roof. This seals the roof, and because it “etches” into the surface of the tile, acts as a “gripper” coat, giving maximum adhesion. This coat is sprayed on with an airless paint machine.
- Apply 2 or more roof membrane coats in the colour of your choice using only the premium in the industry, using our Dulux Acratex, roof membranes. The roof membrane coats are very heavy bodied (thick in consistency) and form a protective membrane for your roof.
- Quality Control Inspection – Our on-site manager will be present throughout the entire duration of your roof restoration, assuring each step is met as we pride ourselves on quality workmanship and results.
