Just as with regular gutter cleaning, regular roof cleaning is essential in the longevity of your roof.
Roof Repointing and Re-bedding
The bedding on your roof refers to the concrete mortar that keeps the roof materials such as tiles in place. Over time, this concrete mortar can deteriorate and lead to lose tiles and roof leaking, therefore it is important to maintain it, this is the process of re-bedding.
Roof pointing is a strong second layer that goes over the initial roof bedding and helps to further add protection to the roof.
Both roof repointing and roof re-bedding are services that we offer in our roof restoration service in the Ipswich Region.
Tile Roof Restoration by local, experienced roofers
To restore a tiled roof, our roofing contractors will firstly remove any cracked, broken, chipped and defective tiles and replace them with an identical tile that will make your roof watertight and appear cohesive with the rest of your roof. It is important to tend to all and any roofing needs including repairs throughout the entire roof before painting and sealing it, this is to ensure that you get the best outcome for your investment.
Then the surface of the entire roof is cleaned. Depending on your roof type, we will use a high pressure cleaning process to remove any debris, like moss, lichen and algae. If your roof is asbestos, no high pressure equipment is used to reduce the risk of breaking sheeting. However most roofs will be cleaned with high pressure, specialised equipment.
Following the cleaning, the roofing experts will take care of the ridge caps, by either replacing them or restoring them onto a re-bedded surface.
Roof repointing is next, we use up to date materials to ensure the best outcome for your roof.
An anti-fungal spray is next, this will ensure a longer lasting result without the need for further cleaning.
Then, the roofer will seal and coat the tiles according to the budget and desired outcomes of the home owner.

The benefits of roof restoration and why it is worth investing into
Why should you restore your roof?
- Add value to your property
Your roof is an important factor in determining the value of your property: it can either add value or decrease the value of your property. Peeling paint on an old roof is a big deterrent for a lot of people. It is an obvious but forgotten part of DIY renovations but will make a substantial difference in the outcome of your sale or property valuation. Full roof restoration services will enable an existing roof to get a new lease on life and last for a whole lot longer than if it is left to deteriorate.
The street appeal that a restored roof gives to your property is significant. A home’s exterior can be completely elevated when a new or restored roof is added. Especially important when assessing the value of your home prior to selling or renting. The investment that you put into restoring your roof and gutters will return many fold. When a roof is leaking or is compromised in some way but aesthetically looks good, home owners may ignore the signs that the problem needs to be addressed, however this can lead to much bigger problems in the future that bring with it a higher price tag.
- Fix problems promptly before they become bigger issues
Your roof is also the protector of your house and belongings from the elements, and we all know how unpredictable the QLD elements can be, so your roof needs to be reliable. For this reason, your roof needs to be in good condition to be able to protect you.

The most common type of roof restoration
The most common material of roofing in the roof restoration industry are tiles. This is because it is a very common building material for roofs. Metal roof restorations are increasingly becoming more popular in the local area, especially for renovated Queenslanders. Due to the harsh weather QLD sees on a regular basis, especially in the storm season, roofs see a beating that can require specialist restoration services. Metal roofs are a durable and less expensive option than tiles due to the labour involved in installing a tiled roof.
Tiled roofs are durable, they come in such a huge range of aesthetic varieties that they can be suited to almost any home. Broken tiles can lead to leaks and eventually to deterioration of the roof and ceiling structures which can lead to mould growth and many other long term problems. Usually a broken tile is found to be as a result of a branch or something landing on the tile on an unfortunate angle and cracks it. Most often, tiles can simply be replaced by a roofer as part of a roof repair or roof restoration process depending on the condition of the rest of your roof.
