How Long Does a Roof Restoration Take?

A roof restoration is more than simply repairing a roof, the process involves restoring a roof to the point where it looks almost brand new, and this is almost always more cost effective than replacing the roof entirely.

With favourable weather conditions, a roof restoration may take anywhere from 2 to 3 days. Our qualified technicians at Roof Ranger will work with you to assess the current state of your roofing and will figure out what needs to be done to restore it to its original condition. We undertake all repair work as part of any restoration so that it is functional and watertight.

What is the Roof Restoration Process?

It is important to acknowledge that a roof restoration is not a do-it-yourself project as it requires the skills of a roofing specialist. Not only this, but there are also increased safety concerns since there is height involved on the job.

A roof restoration typically involves replacing roof tiles or sheets, realigning and resealing roofing, as well as repainting and repointing. Keep in mind, the roof restoration process may vary from house to house based on its type of roofing and its current state.

Types of Roof Restoration

For a terracotta roof restoration, Roof Ranger firstly evaluates the roof tiles for any cracks or mould then the work starts from there. From the detailed cleaning and replacing broken tiles to using a special terracotta glaze to guarantee the best results first go.

For a cement roof restoration, we clean the roof tiles and remove all visible debris then the surface is pressure cleaned. Any broken tiles are replaced, and sealer is applied topped with two paint coats for a lasting finish.

Finally, for a metal roof restoration, our technicians come out to restore the exterior of sheet metal roofs with galvanised iron or Colorbond so the roof will be good as new.

How Long Will My Roof Restoration Last?

Depending on the UV levels at your location, coating colour choice and other conditions, a professional roof restoration can typically add an extra 10 to 15 years to the life of your roof. This is absolutely why it is recommended to use a professional restoration service, or you may end up with a hazardous or patchy roof if you should attempt to repair it yourself.

Some common reasons for why DIY roof restorations fail:

  • Roof was not cleaned properly to restoration
  • Improper inspection for cracked tiles, especially the hidden ones
  • Wrong type or inadequate roof primer was used causing the peeling or blistering of paint
