The outside world constantly batters roofs. From storms, hail and debris to the blistering Australian sun, your home’s roof is the key to keeping the elements out of your home. Unfortunately, this also means that your roof takes a lot of punishment daily and is prone to become damaged and old over time.
If your roof has undergone some wear and tear, like loose tiles or faded paint, it might be time for a roof restoration. A proper roof restoration is a necessary part of roof maintenance. It ensures that your roof looks fantastic all year round and can fix some of the smaller problems that might be affecting it before they become big, expensive issues.
Every ReKote restoration follows our tried and tested process to ensure that your roof comes out looking better than the day it was installed.

The Way We Restore Your House Roof
1 Thorough Roof Inspection
We start all roof restorations by checking the roof surface for oxidisation levels broken tiles, and make sure all repairs are complete.
2 High-pressure cleaning
This is one of the most important parts of roof restorations – the purpose of this process is to remove any oxidisation from the roof surface (failure to complete this part of the job successfully will result in peeling and cracking of the paint). This will allow the primer/sealer to do its job properly and create a lasting finish.
3. Re-pointing and re-bedding the ridge and/or gables
After the pressure cleaning, the next step in the roof restoration involves using a C3-rated flexi point to re-point all ridges and gables; in some cases, if the mortar has badly deteriorated, we will have to rebed the ridge. In this case, we remove the tile or ridge, clean out the old mortar and set the ridge or tile with a 4-1 bedding cement mix and then we will continue with the pointing process.
4 The application of the primer/sealer
Not all roof surfaces are the same i.e. metal, concrete and terracotta and the way that they age under the harsh Australian elements can vary a lot so it is important that all roofs are inspected properly to make sure the correct primer/sealer is used during the roof restoration. This will make sure that the paint bonds with the roof surface for years to come.
5 Masking hand painting
Roof restorations for houses with exposed cladding or solar panels must be masked or hand painted so that no over-spray is caused.
6 Roof Painting and Polishing
This is the final process to take place now we have all the prep work complete we can start our paint application we apply 2 coats using an airless spray gun to ensure an nice even coating and in most cases we use a Nutech tile flex paint that insures a premium finish for years to come. Job completed!
