Roof Restoration Process
Concrete Tile Roof Restoration
Its worth getting a roof restoration done sooner rather than later. We can restore just about any roof in any condition but the longer a tile roof is left porous and open to the elements the more damage is done. It’s the repeated action of the concrete tiles absorbing rain water and then drying out that causes the tiles to become brittle. The longer the tiles are left in this state the more brittle they become. After a complete roof restoration the roof is sealed and tile surface no longer porous thus prolonging the life of the tile and extending the life of your roof For more details on our roof painting and restoration process click here to see the roof painting page.
Metal Roof Restoration
Tile Roof Restoration
Terracotta roof tiles are different to concrete in several ways. Firstly they can not be painted. There is still no paint or coating product that can bond to the terracotta tile surface and maintain its finish long term. We generally pressure clean the Terracotta surface and apply a silicon-based solution to give a good roof seal to the tiles. Once the roof cleaning is finished the Terracotta tiles will look like new as they never fade. Terracotta Tiles Roofs have a strong tendency to moss and lichen growing on the tile surface. The silicon-based roof seal just deters the moss regrow by blocking up the pores of the tile. As part of a Terracotta Tile Roof Restoration, we pressure clean your roofs.
Colourbond Roof Restoration
In the late 90s and early 2000s there was a long running batch of colourbond that had a tendency to loose its out coating rather quickly, usually starting to flake and peel off from the 10 year mark onwards. The good news is these sheets are usually able to be restored back to new with a roof restoration as the original Zincalume coating remains bonded and stuck to the base metal. Check our gallery to see what we have done with many roofs clad with 1990s Colourbond.
BENEFITS OF A ROOF RESTORATION
A roof restoration can increase the value of your home and prolong the life of your roof for many years. The appearance of the whole house can be drastically transformed with a new roof restoration. Whether going for a new modern colour or keeping with the original theme of the house, the differences can be incredible.
Cost of Roof Restoration
At Oz-Roof we have years of experience undertaking top quality roof restorations in South Australia. We are proud to offer a great value service to our roof restoration customers. We give a fantastic standard of finished work backed by the strongest warranty periods in the industry. We offer all this at a price that is usually 20% – 30% cheaper than the big-name players. We are able to keep our prices down as we aren’t a huge company with big offices and high overheads to pay. We don’t have salesmen that take a commission and play silly games with customers. We are a small team that just enjoy what we do. As a rough price estimate, the cost of a full roof restoration is usually around $6000 – $7000 for a reasonably simple regular size roof and around $8000 – $9000 for a larger and more steep roof. Obviously, every roof is a little different and hence requires a site inspection to determine the exact cost.

Offering up to a 10% discount for 2 houses, and 15% for 3 houses or more.

Have a look on the Re-roofing page and in our Gallery for great before and after photos of Re-roofing and Tile conversion restorations.
Roof Restoration with Solar Panels
These days most roofs have solar panels installed and we are often asked what can be done when it comes to roof restoration with solar panels installed. We work with several solar installers in Adelaide on a very regular basis and for us It’s as simple as one phone call to have a solar system of any size removed and reinstalled after our roof restoration work has been completed.
For Tile roof restorations and roof painting we usually recommend removing the panels only and leaving the rails and mounting hardware still attached to the roof. This allows us access to inspect and replace any broken tiles under the solar panel area and be sure of the integrity of the roof before re-installation of the panels. In cases where the roof is in reasonable condition or the customer is budget conscious, we can leave the solar panels in place and mask up over them before coating the roof around them. We can usually apply the coating up too 100mm inside the edge of the panels so that no uncoated roof area is visible from ground level.
We usually send our solar guys out several days before we start our work to remove and stack the panels. All the rails and mounting hardware are left on the roof as they don’t prevent access to any of the roof surface. Another benefit of removing the solar panels for roof restoration is that every part of the roof can be covered under the 15 year roof restoration warranty.
Why use Oz-roof over other roof restoration companies?
We are Not a franchise!
We are a locally owned and operated roof restoration business servicing the local area. When you make a phone call to us it won’t go through to a national call centre. The person that inspects your roof will issue the quote and then manage the job to completion.
No Money down!
We have a no money upfront policy. While other companies charge a hefty deposit and often ask for a percentage of the job upfront to lock you in, we don’t play any of those games. We just ask for a $100 deposit and don’t ask for a cent more until your roof restoration is fully complete and you are 100% happy with your new roof. No risk, No pressure. No BS.
Because we aren’t a big company with huge overheads or part of a national franchise system we are able to be very competitively priced. From years of feedback, we have found that we are generally 30% – 40% cheaper than the big name brands and franchises – This is while delivering a quality of work that exceeds our competitors.
Specialists in roofing
We just do one thing and do it really well. We wont try to sell you Roller shutters or Solar panels or steak knives or pizzas! Roofing is what we know and love and the only thing we do. Don’t go with a company that sells everything under the sun, they cant possibly take their roofing as seriously as we do.
Backing of the big name manufactures!
We might be a small company but through a proven history of quality work, we have the backing of some of the big name suppliers in the Roof Restoration Industry. We use Revolution Roofing for all our Iron roofs and Tile to Colourbond conversions.
The Revolution Roofing products come with the highest warranty on the market. For all our Tile Roof Restorations we exclusively use Dulux Acratex products. Oz-Roof are a Dulux certified applicator and that means the full Dulux 15 years warranty comes with all our Restorations.
Tradesmen not salesmen
The person that comes to your house is a tradesman of many years experience that really knows roofing. We are not a company that sends you a high pressure sales person with no real industry experience who will probably be selling Indoor blinds at his next appointment. We don’t play sales games either.
We generally give you a fixed price quote verbally at our roof inspection and then follow it up with a formal quote by email.
No “for a limited time only” No, “If you sign up today we will give you a fake discount” No, “Free plasma TV for this week only” We just give up front discussion and quote with no games.

No this is not a problem. In most cases the panels can stay on the roof but we will advise you if we think they should be temporarily removed after a roof inspection. For more detailed information on this, refer to our blog article on Roof painting and Roof Restoration with solar panels.
No this is not true. This is semantics and sales tactics played by some other companies. Once the tile surface has been coated the roof has been sealed and the tiles are no longer porous. A roof restoration is exactly the same thing. For more detailed information on this refer to our blog article Roof Restoration vs Roof Sealing vs Roof painting explained.
Your new roof restoration roof coating is covered under a 15 Year warranty issued by Dulux and Oz-Roof. In the event that any fault may become evident both Dulux and Oz-Roof will inspect and rectify the problem. Also good to know if your roof restoration flakes or peels it would make a first for us at Oz-Roof.
Yes we can replace pointing only however we will give your roof a good inspection because chances are if the pointing is failing it may be a better use of your money to have a full roof restoration done at the same time.
Every roof is different and therefore the cost of roof restoration can vary a little or a lot depending on a few things. We generally advise that a simple and smaller Roof Restoration is usually around the $6000- $7000 + GST mark. While a larger and more time consuming roof style may cost closer to $8000 - $9000 + GST for a full roof restoration. For more detailed information refer to our recent blog post the cost of roof restoration in Adelaide.
This depends on several factors such as size and pitch of the roof. It also depends on the number of broken tiles. Generally 3-5 days in good weather will be adequate to complete the roof restoration.
