Restoring a roof is a far different process than making small repairs and replacements because we focus on revamping the roof in its entirety, not just focusing on a small section. Often you will find that conducting a full roof restoration is actually more cost effective and more environmentally friendly than making multiple small repairs over time.
In this blog, we are going to explain the process of restoring a roof and the methods we use to make sure that your new roof looks just as good as the day it was first constructed, if not better.
The first thing we need to do when beginning the process of restoring a roof is to check the existing roof. This is done to give all of the workers the chance to get to grips with the task ahead, gaining knowledge on the size and shape of the roof, and what materials will be best suited for the job. After the inspection, we will talk with the customer to explain our assessment of what the job will entail. This is all done in order to lay the groundwork before we start the restoration process.
Now that we have identified which parts of your roof need specific work doing to them, we will go ahead a get going with repairing and replacing any tiles that even show the smallest signs of damage. This is because we want to make sure that each and every tile on your roof is of pristine quality so that it will last as long as possible.
Once all of the roof tiles have been repaired and/or replaced, it is time to give the roof a clean. For this, we will use a pressure washer to make sure that all of the grime and dirt collected over the years has been removed. This will also give new and old tiles the best possible finish, making the first time you see your new roof even more exciting.
After the cleaning is all done, we begin to apply a protective coating across the roof. The protective coating keeps the roof clean and safe, as the sealant we use does wonders to prevent any future leaks or damages for years to come. At this point we will also apply any paintwork that needs doing, just to make sure that the roof is looking its best.
