Repair or Restore Your Roof?
Sooner or later, every owner of a house asks the question: repair or restore my roof? Dependant on the current condition of your roof, it may not be the easiest question to answer.

Once you have decided on repairing or restoring your roof, there are steps to take to make sure you get it right the first time. If you’ve employed a specialist company for the job, you can ask them about their processes and materials, to make sure they’re doing the best job possible for you.
Choose the best quality Roofing Materials
Deciding on the best roofing material helps you avoid frequent maintenance and/or repairs in the foreseeable future. Selecting the right materials for your climate is extremely important, as well as the appearance you want. A good roofing company will go through all the benefits and drawbacks of materials available.
Opt for Modern Materials
Modern roof materials available today may cost a little bit more, but they’re also lighter to handle, more durable in harsh weather conditions and have a longer lifespan. This makes them more cost-effective over a longer period of time when you restore the roof.
Get Regular Roof Inspections
If you live in a relatively stable climate, then an inspection every couple of years should be sufficient. If you live in an area prone to extreme conditions such as cyclones, severe electrical storms, or extreme cold, a yearly roof inspection is your safest option. This will mean problems are found and rectified before they get serious and expensive.
Keep Your Roof Clear and Clean
It is recommended that your roof should be checked for mould, moss and mildew approximately every six months to a year, or after a weather event when a lot of debris has fallen. If these are allowed to remain on your roof, they can eat into the materials and end up shortening the lifespan of your roof.
Colouring or Painting
For tiled or iron sheeting roofs, use the most durable outdoor, specialist roof paint. This ensures the strongest, toughest and longest-lasting protection.
