How do you restore metal  roofs?

Roof Restoration can be complex and difficult depending on the steepness, height and design structure of the roof. We follow a 4-step process Roof Restoration Process to restore your roof to its former glory.

  1. Roof Check
    The metal roof is checked for leaks. Loose roof sheets and flashings are secured. Nails and rusted tek screws are replaced with new Tek screws where needed. If roof sheets are in poor condition they are replaced.
  2. Pressure Cleaning
    The roof is pressured cleaned with an industrial grade roof pressure cleaner. This removes scale, dirt and loose rust to clean the roof surface thoroughly. This means  that roof membranes  will adhere to the roof sheets.
  3. Rust Treatment
    Where rust is found a treatment is applied to ensure the metal roof is water tight. It will also create a  strong surface for the  primers and membranes to adhere to.
  4. Roofing  Membrane Application
    A primer coating is applied to the metal roof. Followed by an additional two (2) coats of the metal roof membrane. This membrane is available in a range of colours to meet your needs and preference. We use the “Colourtile Membrane System”. Heat reflective paints/membranes are available for clients that request it.
