As a homeowner, there are many costs associated with maintaining your home and securing it for the use of you, your family, your business or tenants. You may be wondering whether professional roof restoration is worth the cost, or even necessary at all. Wherever you are in Australia, roof maintenance is essential to protecting your home from the elements, pests, and general wear and tear.
Benefits of Roof Restoration
Roof restoration is a cost-effective measure to maintain the upkeep of your property, and improve your home’s value. Whether you’re planning to sell or not, the aesthetics of your home or business are an important part of providing a positive first impression to guests and visitors.
Roof restoration services can:
- Extend the life of your roof
- Add street appeal to your home
- Provide protection from harsh weather conditions
- Can deter pests from entering your roof cavity
While roof restoration may seem expensive, the value added to your home by caring for your roof is significant. Most homes only require extensive restoration work every 10-20 years. However, depending on the location of your home/business, your roofing materials, and the weather conditions your property is exposed to, more frequent maintenance may be necessary.
The following elements can impact the cost of your roof restoration:
The size of your roof
It goes without saying that the larger the roof that is being restored, the more you can expect it to cost. A one bedroom home will be cheaper to restore than a 3 or 4 bedroom family home due to the smaller amount of resources, time and man-power required for the job to be done properly.
If the roof is difficult to access or requires specialised machinery/safety equipment to scale, this may impact the cost. Very steep roofs are generally more complex to work on, thus the cost may increase.
Type of roof
The roofing material may play a part in the cost of its restoration. This is because different tools, equipment and techniques are required to restore different materials.
Tile roof restoration
Common terracotta roof restorations can involve cracked or loose tile replacement, repointing and rebedding, mould removal and cleaning.
Metal roof restoration
Your metal COLORBOND roof restoration might involve rust removal and repair, metal sheet replacement, and repainting.
Extent of restoration required
If you only require a mould treatment or a new coat of paint, this will be cheaper than a full-service restoration – or even a roof replacement. The quote provided by your chosen roofing company will come down to the extent of TLC your roof requires, as well as your budget.
