Is roof restoration better than roof replacement?
It depends on the condition of your roof.
Roof restoration is a good option if
- Your roof is less than 20 years old.
- The damage is minor, such as missing or cracked tiles, or faded paint.
- You want to improve the look of your roof.
- You want to extend the life of your roof for a few more years.
Roof replacement is a better option if
- Your roof is more than 20 years old and has extensive damage, such as leaks, sagging, or rot.
- The underlying structure of your roof is damaged.
- You want to change the look or type of your roof.
How long does it take to restore a roof?
Of course, your roof is different from others, and your Brisbane roofer will need to inspect it, determine what needs to be done and estimate how long the work will take.
Factors affecting the size of the job in include the level of damage, the height of the roof, the level of finish you want and the weather. Since some factors are out of anyone’s control, you will only get an estimated timeframe.
As a rough gauge, however, most tile and metal roof restoration projects take 2-3 days in good weather conditions. Note that your roofer may need some time to finish other jobs and prepare, so start time may not be immediate.
Importantly, regardless of the time is takes to start, and finish, your project, using an expert team, like Dr Roof, will reduce the impact on your life during the restoration, and ensure a long-lasting result: a strong, beautiful roof.
How long does a roof restoration last?
Naturally, we all want the work we do to last forever, but nothing ever does. Whether metal or tiles, your roof will continue to be exposed to the sun, rain, hail, wind and airborne debris.
So a good way to estimate how long your roof will stay in good shape once it’s restored is by how long it lasted up to this point. A rough gauge for a professional roof restoration is 15-20 years.
When you hire Dr Roof to restore your roof, you get a 3-year warranty on workmanship and a 15-year warranty on materials (we use high quality materials, so you know you’re getting a great deal).
