All about Roof Restoration

Roof restoration is the procedure of maintaining your roof to ensure that the roof is kept in optimal condition. Roof restoration involves the process of identifying any weaknesses in your roof and repairing them as required. Generally the roof restoration process includes a final protective waterproof coat to ensure that the roof remains in good condition for years to come.

Roof restoration will be performed differently dependant upon the type of roof that you have. A house that has an old roof from the 1800ís will need to be restored differently from that of a house with a slate roof and different again to that of a tiled roof. Most roof restorers are experienced in different types of restoration and therefore will be able to help you with your roof restoration.

When you hire an experienced roof restoration contractor not only will you be preserving the life of your roof, but will also gain such benefits as increased energy efficiency which in turn can result in lower power bills. Whilst lower power bills are a great benefit of roof restoration, the most cost effective reason to choose roof restoration is to avoid paying a costly replacement of a new roof later down the track.


The cost of roof restoration will be dependant upon the type of roof you have. As a rough guide the average price for a roof restoration regardless of your roof type is approximately one third of the price of a new roof. When considering that a new roof can cost around $25,000 or more and only lasts for 10- 15 years without roof restoration, it makes sense that the benefits of a roof restoration can ultimately save you money and extend the life of your roof for years to come.
