Reroofing your home with ReKote
Several functional and aesthetic benefits apply when choosing to reroof a home.
In many cases, repairing, fixing, or re-colouring an existing roof can be just as much – if not more – than the cost of undertaking a full reroof.
In addition to giving your home a new modern finish, a full reroof ensures that current or potential problems with your existing roof will be removed.
10 Steps To Reroofing:
Depending on the size of the roof Reroofing can take 2 to 4 days to complete. There are 10 steps to the reroofing process:
1 Inspect Roof
The existing roof timbers are inspected to ensure the battens are sound.
2 Install Safety Rail
Before commencing any work, a guard rail is installed.
3 Remove Old Roof
All the old roof tiles or metal roof sheets are removed.
4 Install Sarking
The sarking is carefully unrolled across the roof.
5 Install New Battens
New battens are nailed to the rafters with a high pressure nail gun.
7 Start Laying New Tiles
Tiles are laid sequentially up the roof from the gutter line.
6 Load Up New Tiles
The new roof tiles are lifted up to the roof using an elevator belt.
8 Hip & Ridge Tiles Installed
All hip and ridge lines are covered with ridge fittings.
Pointing covers the mortar in a colour that matches the roof tile.
Guard rail is removed and the site cleaned up.
