Roof Restoration For Tiled Roofs

How We Restore And Cool Your Roof

We inspect the entire roof for damaged tiles,loose or missing bedding,moss and lichens.lichen covered roof

Damaged tiles. Tiles deteriorate  through constant exposure to wind rain and sun.The UV rays from the sun will affect the painted surface and cause it to go powdery.

Have you seen those paint ads on TV?

Hail and sometimes people walking on the roof will cause the tiles to crack or pieces to break off.  Tiles can move  over time and become loose (especially along the valleys. We realign or replace those tiles.

Ridge capping is those special tiles along the peak of the roof and down the joins from the peak to the guttering. (Imagine a north facing side joining a west facing side to the roof).  We rebed and repoint ridge capping with a flexible acrylic pointing mix. Being flexible means it will withstand movement much better.

The entire roof then needs sealing. We have a range of specialty primers and sealers to suit specific conditions on your roof. The primer and sealer not only seals the surface of the tile ,it also helps the final paint to adhere better to the tile and so it will last much longer.

We use and recommend Dulux® InfraCOOL™ paint for the final roof treatment. It comes in a variety of colours and they all possess the same heat reflective technology

Today The CoolRoof CEO Scott Downing launched the company’s new website.

“The CoolRoof will bring relief to many thousands of people who swelter through the Queensland sun.” said Mr Downing. “This relatively new – well new to Australia at least – technology reflects a large proportion of the UV and visible spectrum light that falls on the roof, providing an instant cooling effect inside the building, whether it’s a house, commercial premises or industrial building.”

According to Scott, “White is the new Green” which means that by painting your roof with the Dulux Infra-COOL® Commercial White, you can reduce the heat absorption on your rooftop by up to 70%.

This translates to a savings on your air-conditioning bill of up to 30%!

“The aim of the new website is to explain this heat reflective paint technology in easy to understand terms and to explain the many benefits of treating your roof with this new product.” he said.
