BENEFITS OF ROOF RESTORATION
Your roof is one of the most important aspects of your home’s exterior. It keeps you warm and dry during bad weather and ensures that pests like rodents and birds don’t invade your home. Moreover, a well-maintained roof helps to keep your household’s energy where it should be (inside your home).
That’s why it’s important to ensure your roof remains in good condition. Although you don’t always see it, the value your roof provides cannot be understated. As such, roof restoration, which involves repainting, repairing and cleaning, offers many benefits.
ROOF RESTORATION INCREASES YOUR ROOF’S LONGEVITY
Sydney is known for its extreme weather conditions i.e. winds, hail storms and blistering heat waves. They weaken the structural integrity of the roof. While it may not mean that your roof is going to collapse today, it means that eventually your roof is going to need some maintenance performed on it.
Not acting on issues you have now can make things a lot worse in future, causing you a fair amount of out of pocket expenses.
A roof restoration will prolong the life of your roof and negate the need for expensive repairs, or even a full replacement, in the future. For instance, an experienced roofing contractor will inspect your roof before work begins to locate areas of potential weakness. That means they will identify cracked or broken tiles, or unsecured metal sheeting, both of which can allow the elements in. As a result, investing in a roof restoration can add years to your roof’s lifespan.

ROOF RESTORATION PREVENTS ROOF LEAK
Home damage comes in many forms, but one of the most troublesome is a water leak that allows moisture into the home through the roof.
When a roof deteriorates or is not properly sealed, water can easily find its way in and once it’s in, it will wreak havoc. If the roof is not restored, the house suffers from water damage and the growth of mould.
A roof restoration can easily remedy this problem by ensuring that all of the tiles are in place and that the roof is sealed as it should be. This also eliminates the cost of repairing damage due to water.

ROOF CLEANING SYDNEY
Over the years a build up of dirt, moss and lichen will occur. How much so depends on the roof product, any coating it may have and the age of the roof. How bad it looks depends on the contrast between the dirt, moss and lichen and the color of the roof. Lightly colored roofs will show the effects of dirt build up much more than say a black or charcoal coloured roof.
While moss and lichen build up is normal and a little can look appealing to some on say a slate tile roof, a major build up on a terracotta roof could lead to some issues down the line. As the moss and lichen can grow between tiles and over the bedding/pointing which can lead to cracking. This can create voids which in an extreme case can lead to water/rodents penetrating your roof and capping tiles coming away.
Moss and lichen building up on a Colorbond roof not cleaned for an extended period can cause premature ageing of the surface of the metal. This is because the moss and lichen eats into the bonded paint, damaging the coating and leaving a mark. Once the lichen has taken hold, stains from where it bonded to the roof will remain after roof cleaning Sydney. This is why it is important to have your roof cleaned when you see mossy cauliflowers forming on the surface.
