Roof Repairs & Roof Restoration
We are the leading specialists in roof repairs and roof restoration in Melbourne and Victoria.
All our roofing services, including roof repairs and roof restoration, come with a 10-year guarantee on our workmanship and we will leave your roof and property in spotless condition.
Leaky roof? We can repair all leaks and other problems with your roof - from broken tiles to cracked cement work and bedding that has fallen out from hips, valleys and gables. We can assess and fix any problem with your roof as part of our complete roof repair services in the Melbourne area.
Full Roof Restorations
As our name implies, we specialise in full roof restorations. Your roof will look entirely new after we have restored it! We will replace all chipped and broken tiles, replace rusted valley irons, pressure clean your roof with 3,500psi water pressure and remove, re-bed and point all cement work.
For cement tiles, we only use our superior 3-coat sealing system, which includes primer, sealer and topcoat. You will also get at least 6 coated tiles as spares for future use, and we will clean down your roof and remove all rubbish.
New Roofs and Extensions
We also install new roofs and do all types of roof extensions, using any tiles of your choice. For your roof extension, we can match the tiles from your existing roof.
And for ultimate protection we use our primer, sealer (base) and top roof coatings as part of our 3-point coating system.
Re-roofing / Roof Replacements
If your roof tiles are old and brittle, it's likely you need a complete re-roof - having all your roof tiles replaced. We can either use new or good second-hand roof tiles for this, whichever you prefer. A complete re-roof can be done within 2 days to a week, depending on the size of your home.
A re-roof involves replacing all roof tiles and ridge caps and installing new battens, heavy-duty sarking, new valleys, new gable flashings and flexible pointing. We will also clean down your roof and remove all rubbish.
As always, for superior protection and finish, we use our 3-coat sealing system. By coating your roof with a primer, base coat and top coat we can ensure your roof is sealed, safe and looks great.
Dirty roof? Let us pressure-wash it for you and your roof will come out looking spotless! Using high-pressure water at 3,500psi, we will wash and rinse down your entire roof and do a complete clean out of your gutters. We'll get rid of all moss, lichens, leaves and other dirt off your roof. As part of our service, we will also hose down and clean the outside of your gutters, fascias, windows, paths and other surrounding areas. Most terracotta roofs will look brand new after we've pressure washed it.
Roof Re-Bedding and Re-Pointing
We can re-bed all loose or misaligned ridge caps, gables and valleys on your tiled roof. We'll then re-point all ridge caps, gables and valleys using flexible pointing and replace any rusted valley irons. Our re-bedding and re-pointing service includes the changing of all broken and cracked tiles, using similar sizes and profiles. To finish off, we'll clean down your roof and remove all rubbish.
Valley Iron Replacement
Rusted valley irons cause leaks. If the valley irons on your roof are rusted, we can replace them with either zinc or ColorBond® valley irons, ensuring a long life of your new valley irons. In most cases, we'll re-bed and point the valleys with cement and flexible pointing, but we also use a new foam product called Valley Seal underneath the valley tiles.
The scotia, which is a thin strip of wood underneath the gable tiles, is generally exposed to the weather and can rot away easily if it's not painted. If your scotia has rotted away, we can replace it for you. We also have to re-bed and point the gable tiles when doing scotia replacements.
Roof flashing is essential for the waterproofing of your roof. Flashing can be very vulnerable in places where different surfaces join, especially around chimneys and skylights. If you have flashing that is rusted or cracked, that will cause leaking into your roof. We can replace the flashing to ensure your roof is waterproof again.
Guttering & Gutter Replacements
Total Roof Restoration can take care of all your gutter needs. We have a licensed plumber on hand to do all your gutter replacements at great value. If you need your gutters replaced as well as your roof restored or repaired, keep in mind that the guttering needs to be done first, as it can disturb some of the ridge caps on your roof.
Sarking / Roof Insulation
Sarking is a form of insulation as well as roof protection. To install sarking, we roll out Sisalation paper on top of your roof rafters and underneath your battens before laying the tiles on your roof. Sarking in your roof keeps the heat out in summer and retains it in winter by up to 40%, making it a great insulation material. Sarking also acts as an extra roof barrier or a second skin, protecting your roof from wind-driven rain and dust. If any rain should come in through your roof, it would then run straight down to your gutters. Sisalation paper is also fire retardant, making it a great barrier in bushfire prone areas as it keeps hot ashes and embers away from your roof space.
We also do repairs of roof gables. A gable is the generally triangular portion of your wall between the edges of a sloping roof.
Spin Ventilator / Whirly Bird
Need some fresh air? We can install a spin ventilator in your roof. Spin ventilators are effective all year round, removing hot and moisture-laden air from your roof cavities and replacing it with fresh air.
