#1 Roof Restoration Melbourne

Roof restoration goes beyond simply fixing leaks and replacing cracked or broken tiles.

It’s a comprehensive overhaul that repairs existing issues, adds preventative measures like waterproof sarking and ventilation, and rejuvenates your roof with repointing and painting.

This not only extends your roof’s lifespan and protects your home, but also improves energy efficiency and boosts curb appeal, making it a smart investment for Melbourne homeowners.

With over 30 years of experience in the Melbourne roofing industry we have repaired and restored every type of roof. 

Complete Roof Restoration Services

Our motto is ‘We do it right the first time.’

We will inspect every inch of your tile roof, checking each and every element until we (and you) are confident of the results. You can rest assured that we’re fully qualified, fully insured and provide digital images before, during and after.

We even provide a 10 year guarantee on all our work.

We’re proud of what we do.

  • Roof Repointing

    This involves replacing the mortar between tiles, which can become loose or cracked over time. This improves water resistance and the overall stability of the roof.

  • Timber Baton Replacement

    The battens are the wooden supports under the tiles. Damaged or rotten battens compromise the structural integrity of the roof and need replacement.

  • Waterproof Sarking Installation

    Sarking is a waterproof membrane installed underneath the tiles. A new sarking layer can be necessary if the existing one is damaged or missing, providing an extra layer of protection from water infiltration.

  • Gutter Cleaning & Replacement

    Regular gutter cleaning removes debris that can block water flow. Damaged or overflowing gutters need replacement to ensure proper drainage and prevent water damage to your home.

  • Damaged Tile Replacement

    Upgrading your roof to replace individual broken, cracked, or missing tiles to maintain a watertight roof surface which looks great.

  • Ridge Capping Replacement

    The ridge capping covers the peak of the roof. Cracked or broken ridge capping allows water infiltration and needs to be replaced to ensure proper sealing.

  • Roof Painting

    Roof painting doesn't just improve aesthetics. A specialised roof paint creates a protective layer that enhances weather resistance and extends the lifespan of the tiles.

  • Roof Inspections

    Regular roof inspections are crucial for early detection of any potential problems like leaks, damaged tiles, or failing components. Early intervention can prevent costly repairs down the line.

The Powerful Benefits of Installing Waterproof Sarking Membrane During Roof Restoration

We restore your roof so the benefits will last long into the future. This includes installing waterproof sarking membrane which offers a multitude of advantages for your home’s longevity and comfort.

  • Enhanced Leak Protection: Sarking acts as a secondary barrier beneath your roof tiles. It catches any water that penetrates through minor cracks, wind-driven rain, or imperfections in the main roof covering, preventing it from reaching your roof cavity and causing leaks or damage.

  • Reduced Mould Growth: Sarking membranes are typically breathable, allowing trapped moisture within the roof structure to escape. This helps prevent condensation buildup, which can lead to mould growth and potential health concerns.

  • Improved Dust Control: Sarking acts as a barrier against dust and debris entering your roof cavity. This can be particularly beneficial in areas prone to dust storms or heavy winds.

  • Increased Energy Efficiency: Some sarking membranes have reflective properties that can help deflect radiant heat from the sun, keeping your roof cooler in summer and reducing the strain on your air conditioning system.

  • Extended Roof Lifespan: By preventing water ingress, mould growth, and excessive heat buildup, sarking membranes contribute to a healthier roof environment, potentially extending the lifespan of your roof system.

  • Peace of Mind: Knowing you have an extra layer of protection against the elements provides peace of mind and the assurance that your roof is performing optimally.

Your Roof Restoration Questions Answered:

Roof restoration goes beyond just fixing leaks. It’s a comprehensive overhaul that repairs existing issues like damaged tiles or failing mortar, adds preventative measures like waterproof membranes and improved ventilation, and rejuvenates your roof with repointing and painting. This extends your roof’s lifespan, improves its performance, and enhances your home’s curb appeal.

A typical roof restoration includes a thorough inspection, repairs to address leaks and damaged components, preventative measures like installing sarking and improving ventilation, and improvements like repointing and a fresh coat of paint.

  • Signs your roof may need restoration include curling or cracked shingles, leaks, visible moss growth, or a noticeable decline in energy efficiency. For minor leaks or damaged tiles, repairs might suffice. However, if you see widespread issues or your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan (around 15-20 years for some materials), restoration is a better long-term solution.

Absolutely! Restoration is a cost-effective way to extend your roof’s lifespan, prevent future problems that could lead to costly replacements, and improve your home’s energy efficiency and value.

  • Licensing and Insurance: Ensure they are licensed and have adequate liability and worker’s compensation insurance.
  • Experience and Expertise: Look for a company with a proven track record and experience with your specific roof type.
  • Warranties: Choose a company that offers warranties on both materials and workmanship.
  • Clear Communication: Make sure they clearly explain the process, materials used, and costs involved.
  • References and Reviews: Check online reviews and ask for references from past customers.

We are fully accredited, fully insured and proud members of the Housing Industry Association (HIA).

The cost of roof restoration varies depending on the size and condition of your roof, the materials used, and the complexity of the job. Generally, roof restoration can range from $3,000 to $12,000 for an average-sized home. For a more accurate estimate, we can provide you an obligation free inspection and consultation.

Combining restoration and painting can be a cost-effective way to improve your roof’s condition and aesthetics. The combined cost typically falls within the range mentioned above for roof restoration, with painting adding an additional $1,000 to $3,000 depending on the size of your roof and the chosen paint type.

If your roof is severely damaged, leaking extensively, or nearing the end of its expected lifespan (typically over 20-25 years old), a replacement might be necessary. However, we can provide you a free inspection and assessment and advise on the best course of action.
