What is Roof Restoration?
“Roof Restoration” is a term that is used to describe the process of cleaning, repairing and re-coating a roof. Roof restoration is beneficial for just about all types of roofs.
A roof restoration goes beyond just repairing a roof. Rather than repairing a tiny section of the roof, a roof restoration looks at the roof as a whole and upgrades it all. It’s a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to roof replacement.
What’s Involved in a Roof Restoration?
Benefits of a Roof Restoration
Prevent future damage and leaks
A poorly maintained roof is going to suffer at the hands of harsh weather and falling debris like branches. And if a roof becomes damaged, that’s when you start to get leaks.
A roof restoration is a great way to make sure that every inch of your roof is in top condition.
Any broken tiles will be removed and replaced, and any loose tiles or ridge caps will be re-bedded. The roof will be covered with a protective sealant which is going to prevent damage and leaks for years to come.
Improve your home’s energy efficiency
If your roof is run down and not sealed properly, it’s going to be letting a lot of air in and out. This means you’re going to have to crank up the heat (or the air conditioning) to compensate for all the heat you’re losing.
A roof restoration stops air escaping from your roof, which in the long run is going to save you money on energy bills. You’ll also be doing your bit for the environment too.
Extend your roof’s life
A roof restoration is going to add years to the life of your roof. This means no worrying about damage or leaks for years, and no worrying about the safety of your home.
You’ll be safe in the knowledge that your roof is in good condition, and will be for years to come.
Increase your home’s value
The condition of your roof is vital to the safety and appearance of your home. A good quality, safe roof that’s been well maintained is going to boost your home’s market value.
Buyers are often put off by a roof that looks in need of repair, so by having a roof restoration you’ll increase your chances of an easy sell. You’ll even be able to list your home for a higher price.
How Long Will a Roof Restoration Last?
A lot factors go into determining exactly how long your restored roof will last. The real answer is not as long as a brand new roof, but a lot longer than if you had let your roof continue to deteriorate.
This is why so many of our customers choose roof restoration as a happy medium between the expense of investing in roof replacement and the hassle of constantly paying for minor repairs.
If you want a quick and simple answer, though, a roof restoration typically will add an extra 10 to 15 years to the life of your roof.
How to Tell If Your Roof Needs Restoring
An easy way to tell if you need a roof restoration is to see if there are any cracked or broken tiles. You can also check for sagging, mold, and any signs of corrosion.
In addition, think about the age of your roof. Most roofs last between 20 and 25 years, but you might find that after 15 years or so your roof is in bad shape.
If your roof needs frequent repairs, it’s usually more cost-effective to have a full roof restoration. The cost of frequent repairs adds up, and a professional roof restoration will repair your entire roof in one go, with more long-lasting benefits.
How to Restore a Roof
Different roof types and materials require different approaches, so your best bet is to hire a professional roofing company to restore your roof.
BOSS Complete Renovations has been offering roof restoration in Calgary for decades, so we know what how the weather takes its toll on the roofs in this area.
Roof Restoration Process
To start with, we identify any cracked or broken shingles and replace them. Even shingles with the tiniest, hairline cracks will be replaced to increase roof life.
Once repairs have been made, we’ll clean the roof by pressure cleaning. This is going to get rid of dirt, mold and debris, improving the appearance of your home and reducing damage.
Once the roof has been repaired and cleaned, we’ll apply filler coats, protective coats and seals. During this stage we’ll paint the roof with an airless sprayer, and paint any areas that the sprayer can’t reach by hand. We offer an exclusive colour range so that we can perfectly match the coating to your roof.
