Roof Restoration Melbourne
Roof restoration is when the roof’s surface is restored to its original condition. The roof can be cement tiles, colourbond, metal, or terracotta tiles.
Moreover, if the porosity of the roof is an issue, then the roof needs to be replaced because the application of any coatings/paint will not be a long-term solution and cost you more in the long run.
Steps For Roof Restoration
- Detailed inspection to assess what action is necessary.
- Replace any broken tiles, checking water courses to ensure your roof is waterproof so there is no leaking during the cleaning process.
- High-Pressure Cleaning using water pressure at 4000psi. To remove all dirt, moss, mould, and lichen we have a clean surface to apply the sealer/primer.
- Valley Irons – remove old rusted valley irons and replace them with new ones if required.
- Flashings – check, repair, or replace if necessary.
- Re-bedding – remove all the old bedding (mortar), blow clean the surface, and lay out the new bedding.
- Re-pointing – all the ridge, hip, gable, and valley tiles will be repointed. The pointing compound is flexible and will not crack as it is specially formulated to adhere to the ridge tiles.
- Gutters Cleaned – all leaves, dirt, rubble, and debris are removed.
- Painting of the roof
- anti-fungal spray applied
- sealer/primer coat applied
- colour coat is applied
- the top coat of colour applied
- We will leave you with six painted spare tiles on site.

Rebedding & Repointing
Rebedding and repointing is the cement work on a tiled roof that secures and waterproofs the ridge capping, gable ends, and valleys.
It’s vital that the bedding and pointing are in good condition because this will protect your property from leaks, pests, and storm damage.
For more information about rebedding and repointing a roof, see our blog roof repointing cost. For more information on flexible roof repointing and what it is read out “What is flexible roof repointing?” blog.
Roof Valley & Valley Irons
Valley irons are the metal flashing under the cut tiles in the gully that runs up the roof.
Properties over 30 years old are likely to have significant rusting of the valley irons. It is much cheaper to replace the valleys simultaneously with rebedding and repointing.
For more information about roof valleys, see our blog ‘What is a roof valley‘?
Weep holes are placed at the bottom of the pointing in ridge capping to allow excess water to escape from behind the bedding and pointing.
See our blog Weep Holes in a tiled roof.
