The condition of your house roof should be a priority for everyone. Not only does your roof add to the aesthetic appeal of your home, it provides shelter from inclement weather, keeping your house and family safe from the environmental elements year-round.
Given the battering your house roof endures from the weather and harsh Australian sun, its no surprise that even our roof needs regular maintenance to help keep it looking healthy and, most importantly, ensuring it keeps protecting your family from the various outdoor elements.
To maintain the condition of your roof, it is important to regularly have your roof cleaned and inspected by a professional technician. Highly skilled roofing specialist are trained to assess the quality of your roof and find any damage or problem areas.
By immediately addressing roofing issues, you avoid further damage to your roof and o other areas of your home, saving you time and money. Your two options for roofing issues are roof restoration and roof replacement, but how do you decide which choice is the right one for you? Well, there are several factors that will help you decide this.
Roof Restoration is a popular choice when only a part of the roof needs fixing. This option is
highly recommended when only parts of the roof suffer storm damage or are affected over time by normal wear and tear. Common issues are the appearance of cracks, decay and colour fading or mould and moss growing on your roof tiles.
Essentially, roof restoration is the process of ‘restoring’ your old tiles to their former glory, making them look as good as new and preventing more extensive damage in the future. The restoration process involves cleaning, repairing and replacing broken tiles, as well as re-coating your roof while addressing any issues such as
Given that it is possible to restore many types of roofs, including Colorbond, Terracotta and Concrete tiles, roof restoration is an attractive low-cost option for many Platinum Roof Coatings customers.
Overall, the benefits of this option are it maximises the life of your roof whilst minimising the cost of a full roof replacement. The result is a fantastic looking roof that is waterproof, ensuring your home and its precious contents are protected from the environmental elements.
Sometimes, a roof restoration is not a viable option, especially if your roof has been severely damaged by a storm, has not been properly maintained or built, or even if it is just too old. In such cases, a roof replacement is usually recommended. A roof replacement refers to the process of entirely replacing your current roof with a brand new one. This may be the only course of action if there are too many repairs required and the damage is extensive.
Although a more involved process, a roof replacement has many advantages. For example, it immediately eliminates the worry of maintenance and repairs for ongoing roof problems, it provides product guarantees for all new roofing materials, and it gives you the opportunity to install new and better insulation in your home.
Overall, a roof replacement ensures your home is protected for many years to come and is one of the best investments you can make to drastically improve the look and value of your home.
