Roof Sealing process
1. Pressure cleaning roof tiles
2. Roof Repairs
Following the roof cleaning stage it’s much easier to spot any broken or chipped tiles and identify flaws or defects in the roof. All broken tiles are replaced at this point and any bedding requiring replacement is done also.
3. Roof Pointing
At this step in the roof sealing process all the cap tiles are re-pointed. We use flexible polymer based pointing compound and in most cases simply point over the top of the original cement pointing. The flexible pointing does not crack with roof movement as the old cement pointing did. In some cases the original tile bedding has failed and meant that all the cap tiles must be removed and have the bedding replaced.
4. Roof Priming
5. Colour Coating
Your newly sealed roof will now look better than the day it was installed!
Benefits of Roof Sealing
Roof sealing can make a huge difference to the appearance of your roof and really transform a whole house. In many cases a newly sealed roof actually looks better than the original tile when new. The coating is a gloss finish and really shines. The coating is warranted for a period of 15 years by Dulux and Oz-Roof so you can be assured its fantastic new look is not short lived. Any new roof seal colour can be chosen irrespective of the original colour of the tile. Often clients want to change roof colour to modernise or change the look of their home.
Longevity of the roof
The biggest wear factor on a roof is when the roof tiles become porous. When in this state the roof tiles will absorb water with each and every rain event and then eventually dry out. The repeated action of absorption and drying over a long period of time causes a concrete roof tile to become brittle and crack. In many cases this is actually visible from ground level. If you notice a roof looking damp or soaked several hours after rain this is often a sign of water absorption and a porous roof. Following roof sealing this will never happen again. All water that lands on the roof will simply run down it and into the guttering rather than be absorbed.
Cost of roof sealING in Adelaide
The cost of roof sealing in Adelaide really depends on the house and the roof type. We don’t tend to use square metre rates but look at each job separately. The roof pitch and access to a site often influence the quoted price more than the overall size of the roof. We only use the best quality market leading roof seal products from Dulux and while this adds a little to our cost base the finished outcome is well worth it. The cost for a roof seal on a typical Adelaide house of 4 bedrooms with a standard 22 degree roof pitch is usually around the $6500+GST mark. For a larger home or slightly steeper roof this may be more like $8000+GST. The number of broken tiles is also a factor when quoting a roof seal in Adelaide.
Roof Sealing with Solar panels
With the huge popularity of solar in Australia we come across the question every day of what to do with rooftop solar panels when considering roof sealing. In most cases we leave the solar panels in place and simply undertake the roof seal around them. In this case we ensure the roof sealing coating is sprayed around 100mm under the edge of the solar panels so that no uncoated tile surface can be seen from the ground. On a roof with significant wear or when the tiles are obviously extremely porous we recommend our clients to pay a little extra and have the solar panels temporarily removed and reinstalled after the roof sealing. In this case we arrange all this and get one of our partner solar electricians to do the work.

Roof sealing means rejuvenating your existing roof by way of a process. This process includes pressure cleaning, re-pointing, changing broken tiles and finally coating and therefore sealing of the roof tiles surface. The end result is a roof that looks better than the day it was new and has an impervious seal that will be warranted for 15 years.
Roof sealing is essentially the same as other processes. Once completed the roof tiles will no longer be able to absorb rain water and will be fully sealed. For more detailed information you can read our blog post roof painting vs roof sealing vs roof restoration explained.
