- Replace Broken Tiles
Not every broken tile is a clean break Roof Repairs Sydney and it can cause major leakage. To prevent this from happening to you, they inspect your whole roof and change.
- Pressure Wash
A pressure wash not only washes down the surface area in preparation for painting. It also removes any lichen and bacterial growth that sticks to your roof which can cause severe deterioration in the tile and metal roof surface.
- Change Valley Irons
Valley irons are the water channels placed in the middle of two sloping sides of your roof. Valley irons are metal and over time the combination of cement and bare metal will create rust and eventually cause leaks and damage inside your home. We do recommend changing all valley irons and applying storm seal on all of our roof restoration projects.
Your old cement work eventually cracks and shifts away from your ridge capping. This causes the ridge to become dislodged, which will eventually lead to a leaking roof. As part of their roof restoration service, they will replace and re-install your bedding with a fresh mix of sand and cement.
