What is roof restoration and why do I need it?

Roof restoration is the process of cleaning, repairing, and recoating your roof to extend its life and improve its appearance. Brisbane’s harsh weather can damage your roof over time, so restoring it protects your home and saves you money on costly replacements.

How do I know if my roof needs restoration?

Look for signs like cracked or missing tiles, rust, moss growth, leaks, or a shabby appearance. If your roof is over 15 years old, it likely needs some TLC. Contact ABC Roof Restoration Brisbane for a free assessment.

What are the benefits of roof restoration?

Roof restoration improves your home’s look, value, and energy efficiency. It fixes leaks, extends your roof’s life up to 15 years, and can lower cooling costs. Plus, it’s much cheaper than a full roof replacement.

How long does roof restoration take?

Most roof restorations take 2-5 days, depending on your roof’s size and condition. We work efficiently to minimise disruption and complete the job promptly.

Is roof restoration messy?

We take great care to keep the work area clean and contained. We use drop cloths to protect your property and thoroughly clean up at the end of each day.

What is the roof restoration process?

First, we inspect your roof and make any needed repairs. Then we clean the roof to remove dirt, moss, and debris. Next, we repoint loose ridge caps and apply primer. Finally, we apply a durable top coat for long-lasting protection.

What type of coating do you use for roof restoration?

We use high-quality, Australian-made roof membrane with a 10-year warranty. It’s UV-resistant, waterproof, and formulated for Brisbane’s climate.

How long does a restored roof last?

With proper care, a restored roof can last 10-15 years before needing recoating. Annual inspections and touch-ups can further extend its life.

Can you restore any type of roof?

Yes, we have experience restoring tile, metal, asbestos, and terracotta roofs. We’ll assess your roof and recommend the best solution.

Yes, we partner with a financing company to offer payment plans for approved customers. Ask about financing during your free quote.

How can I tell if a roof restorer is reputable?

Look for a company that is licensed, insured, and has been in business for several years. Check their online reviews and ask for references. Be wary of very low bids as this may indicate subpar work.

How far in advance do I need to schedule my roof restoration?

We recommend contacting us at least 2-4 weeks before you’d like the work done, especially during peak season (spring and summer). However, we can often accommodate shorter timelines if needed.

Do I need to be home during the roof restoration process?

No, you don’t need to be home while we work. We’ll need access to your property and may need to turn off your power for safety reasons. We’ll communicate any special instructions before we start the job.

What if it rains during my roof restoration?

We monitor the weather closely and try to schedule work during clear periods. If unexpected rain occurs, we’ll pause work and cover any exposed areas to protect your roof. We’ll resume as soon as it’s safe to do so.

How do I maintain my restored roof?

After restoration, we recommend having your roof professionally inspected and cleaned every 1-2 years. This allows us to catch and fix any small issues before they become big problems. Avoid walking on your roof when possible.

Can roof restoration improve my home’s energy efficiency?

Yes! A reflective roof coating can help deflect the sun’s rays and keep your home cooler in summer. This can reduce your air conditioning usage and energy bills.

Will roof restoration increase my home’s value?

Absolutely. A well-maintained, attractive roof is a major selling point for homes. If you’re thinking of selling in the next few years, restoring your roof can boost curb appeal and asking price.

We offer a wide range of color options to suit your style and complement your home’s exterior. During your quote, we can show you samples and help you visualise how different colors will look on your roof.

Can you match the color of my existing roof?

In most cases, yes. We can custom tint our coatings to closely match your current roof color. This is a great option if you need to restore only a section of your roof.

Do you offer discounts for roof restoration?

Yes, we occasionally offer seasonal promotions or discounts for seniors, veterans, or first responders. Check our website or ask about current specials when you request your quote.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Payment is due upon completion of the work, unless other arrangements are made in advance.

Do I need council approval for roof restoration?

In most cases, no. Roof restoration is considered maintenance and doesn’t require council approval. However, if we need to make significant structural changes or upgrades, approval may be needed. We can help you navigate this process if necessary.

How can I prepare my property for roof restoration?

Please clear your driveway and areas around your home so we can access your roof. Move any vehicles, outdoor furniture, or potted plants out of the way. Let us know if you have any fragile items near the work area so we can take extra precautions.

What safety measures do you take during roof restoration?

Safety is our top priority. Our team is trained in proper safety protocols and we use appropriate equipment like harnesses, non-slip shoes, and ladder stabilisers. We also cordon off the work area to protect you and your family.

Are the fumes from roof coatings hazardous?

The coatings we use are low-VOC and non-toxic once cured. You may notice a slight odor during application, but it will dissipate quickly. We recommend keeping windows closed and pets inside during the coating process.

How do you handle unforeseen issues during roof restoration?

With over 2 decades of experience, there isn’t much we haven’t seen! If we uncover additional damage or issues during the restoration process, we’ll promptly bring it to your attention and discuss the best solution. We won’t proceed with any additional work without your approval.

Can you provide a written estimate for my roof restoration?

Absolutely. After your free assessment, we’ll give you a detailed, written estimate outlining the scope of work, materials, timeline, and costs. We’ll review it with you and answer any questions you may have before proceeding.
