The Benefits of Re-Roofing and Roof Restoration

The Benefits of Re-Roofing & Roof Restoration

The roof is perhaps the most important part of any building as it provides protection against the elements. After years of constant exposure to the harsh Western Australian weather, your roof will eventually need to be repaired. This is the ideal time to consider re-roofing, which involves removing parts of the existing roof and creating a new one. Existing structural supports may be used with the new design, saving you money on labour and materials.

Re-Roofing

This is not as expensive as you would think, with a large part of the existing roof structure used in the re-roofing process. Re-roofing is the best option when the roof has sustained heavy damage and it is not viable for repair. Sometimes a new owner wishes to change the appearance of the property, and a re-roof will go a long way towards achieving this. Often houses are designed without considering rainfall and wind direction and after a few years, this becomes evident. By changing the shape and direction of the roof, it can radically improve drainage and offer greater protection against wind. There are many design options available which will add value to the property.

Insulation

This is an excellent opportunity to install or improve upon existing insulation, which will dramatically reduce internal temperatures during the hot summer months, while keeping the heat in during the winter. Bower Roofing & Restorations can recommend the most suitable form of insulation during any re-roofing project. It is the most cost-effective way of saving energy, while giving you a more comfortable living environment.

Roof Restoration

If your roof has not been severely damaged, then a restoration job is probably the best option. This involves replacing the damaged components and restoring the roof to its original condition. With the high labour costs of today, it is considerably cheaper than re-roofing, which is more labour intensive.

The Restoration Process

The first step is to remove all the dirt and vegetation and locate the damaged areas. If needed, further support can be added, giving your roof a sturdy foundation to resist the elements. If your roof only needs a few tiles replaced, this can be completed in a matter of hours. After cleaning and repainting, you restored roof will look like new, adding value to your property.

Minimum Disruption

Construction projects invariably affect some people, yet this should be kept to a bare minimum. With an experienced roofer, things are organised in such a way that you would hardly know any work was being carried out. In many cases, the local council needs to give their permission for such work to be completed and this is something we will deal with, leaving you assured that all the necessary steps have been taken.
