Our Sydney Roof Restoration Process
We offer a range of interesting options for your roof restoration in Sydney that can suit your budget and specific requirements. Our services range from a relatively simple yet thorough roof cleaning to complete painting, tile replacements and repointing.
Before we start a roof restoration, we perform a roof inspection to determine its current condition. This is because the needs of your roof during the restoration process are dependent on the current state of your roof. Your home’s roof is exposed and working hard all day, every day. So, it’s only natural that it will deteriorate over time, but if it has been damaged or neglected, your roof may require more work than one that has been well-looked after.
Some of the most common steps involved in a roof restoration include:
- Ensuring the roof is safe and structurally sound
- High pressure cleaning
- Roof Repointing
- Tile replacement
- General maintenance
- Soffits and fascia repairs
- Roof painting – including Terracotta Tiled Roofs
- Gutter and downpipe repairs
Your home may require one or two of these services or a combination of many of them during its roof restoration. Whatever the needs of your roof are, we’ve got you covered and we’ll have your roof restored and back to it’s best condition in no time.
Our roof restorations are available for many different kinds of roofs, including, but not limited to, metal roofs, concrete roofs and tiled roofs.

Frequently Asked Questions
When do you need a roof restoration?
A roof restoration is a very common process, particularly for homes with old roofs that are in great structural condition but have built up wear, tear and minor damage over time.
As your roof is always working, exposed to various weather elements, natural wear and tear will occur. How long your roof will last is dependent on the materials used to make it, the skills of your roof installer, and of course the weather it has been exposed to, so there is no set time period for when a roof restoration is required. Rather, there are signs you can keep an eye out for that may indicate your Sydney roof needs to be restored.
These are some of the most common ways you can tell a roof restoration may be required.
Cracked, Broken and Work Roof Tiles
One or two broken tiles isn’t a big deal and often only need to be replaced or repaired, however, if your roof has multiple broken or missing tiles, or they are generally all quite worn down – which can occur from natural degradation, this can be an open invitation for water, debris and insects to find their way inside and cause further damage.
Water Damage inside your home
If you notice water damage inside your roof cavity, on your ceiling or in your walls, this is a sign that water is getting in somewhere. You may have a guttering problem or your roof may have some weaknesses that are causing it to no longer work efficiently. Your best bet is to call in Roofline and we can inspect your roof and provide you with our recommendations.
Rusty or corroded roofs
If you see signs of rust on the metal sheeting or metal fixtures of your roof, this is a sign that they may need to be replaced, which may mean you need a roof restoration. Any signs of rust or corrosion means that you do have damage and it’s time to stop it in it’s tracks before it becomes a major costly issue.
If there are any changes to the structural integrity of your home’s roof, this is a sign that it needs attention right away. If it appears that sections or panels are sagging or even missing, you may need a roof restoration. If the issue is caused by the actual roof structure having been weakened, you may need an entire roof replacement.
Mould and/or Debris Build Up
Debris like moss, mould, algae and lichen can build up on your roof and actually lead to significant damage to your roof. This sort of debris can cause mould to build up and spread which can be a health issue to you and your family. This happens as this sort of debris can trap moisture on the roof, and if the roof is older or hasn’t been looked after, it can cause the materials to deteriorate faster.
Damaged or worn downpipes and/or guttering
Your roofing system and the gutters work hand in hand, and when one isn’t working properly, it can cause major issues for the other. If your downpipes or gutters are not able to divert water away from your house, this water can build up and cause the materials of your roof to deteriorate at a faster rate.
If you notice any of these issues on your home, it’s time to give us a call at Roofline.
What are the benefits of a roof restoration?
Two important reasons to have your roof restored are to maintain the value of your property and to prevent expensive, avoidable problems occurring in the future. A full roof replacement can run to many thousands of dollars and Roofline is happy to offer you expert advice on how best to delay this for as long as possible, giving you time to make financial provision.
Something as simple as a cracked tile can easily lead to water intrusion, which can then cause damage to roof timbers and even your internal electrical wiring. There is also the very real danger that wet rot or even dry rot can develop, causing major problems, particularly in poorly ventilated roof spaces and voids, which provide the ideal environment for the destructive dry rot fungus to grow. For Roofline’s tradesmen, this is very quick and easy to fix and could save you a small fortune later on. A restoration, particularly when incorporating modern techniques such as ‘Point Last’, can give your roof a whole new lease of life.
Another benefit of roof restoration is that we can apply the Dulux InfraCool coating. This can dramatically decrease the heat radiating into your home via the roof, reflecting up to 90% of the sun’s energy. Surface temperatures can be reduced by 20-40°c and you should see your air-conditioning bills decrease significantly as a result.
Your roof is your home’s first line of defence, so look after it with the help of Sydney’s roofing specialists at Roofline. Your newly restored roof will keep you and your family safe!
How much does a roof restoration cost?
The cost of a Sydney roof restoration is dependent on several factors, including: the size and pitch of your roof, the overall condition of the roof right now, the extent of any repairs required, the accessibility of the site and roof, and the finish you require for your roof.
We can work with you to help plan out your needs and work within your budget. We’re not pushy sales people here at Roofline, we’ll provide you with honest advice and recommendations, so you can feel comfortable knowing that you’re making the right choice for your home’s needs.
We don’t provide quotes for our services over the phone, however, we do provide free, no obligation written quotes for our roof restoration services. Just call us today on 1800 555 800 or fill in the form on the right to organise a free quote for your roof restoration.
How long does a roof restoration take?
The time it takes for a roof restoration is dependent on a variety of factors, but most commonly it takes between 2-4 days to complete.
The time it takes will depend on the size of the roof, the pitch of the roof, the repairs and overall work required, and the finish you’re after. Once we have inspected your roof, we can usually provide a pretty accurate time estimate along with our written quote.
One thing to remember is that the weather can impact our work, but we will always advise this.
What is the roof restoration process for a tiled roof?
Yes, we can restore a wide variety of roofs, include tiled roofs and those with terracotta roof tiles.
The restoration stages for different types of tiled roofs are quite similar, and our roofing teams are well-drilled in completing the work quickly and tidily to the highest professional standards.
Firstly, we remove any cracked, broken, chipped or otherwise defective roof tiles and replace them with an identical style for a seamless match, making your roof watertight again.
Secondly we use a pressure-washer to remove any debris, like moss, lichen and bird droppings. This also helps to eradicate the plant spores, which lodge themselves deep into joints and the porous fabric of the roof tiles themselves.
The next stage involves the careful lifting of the ridge caps, which are the angled or curved tiles that form the apex of your roof. These can then be entirely replaced with new caps or we can save you money by resetting the originals on a new bed of sand-and-cement.
We then replace the pointing, using a great modern alternative, known as Flexi-Point, which has the advantage of moving with the building while under pressure from strong winds without cracking and breaking, thanks to its high-tech flexible polymers. It also comes in an extensive range of over 40 pre-mixed colours to match your roof or perhaps provide an interesting contrast. .
Once the ridge caps are replaced we move on to a sterilisation process, using an anti-fungal agent, which is designed to kill off any remaining spores, whose presence could lead to the regrowth of unsightly mosses and lichen.
The final stage is optional and dependent on your taste and budget. It involves the sealing and priming of your roof and a full repaint. In terracotta roofs, this includes an additional stage whereby the glazed tiles are further sealed with a specialist product.
