Why Re-Roof My House?
A new roof can greatly improve the value and look of your house. You may want to consider re-roofing your home if your roof is old or outdated and you want to update the look. You may be extending or renovating and part of the roof needs to be replaced or extended. Or your roof is unable to be repaired due to extensive deterioration causing the roof to be unstable, unsafe or no longer weather proof.
All Re-roof quotations include the removal of your existing tiles and relaying of your selected new tiles. This process is completed in sections so that your roof is never exposed to rain or harmful elements.
Heath will arrange a time to come out to your residence where he will measure your job and discuss your options. We can also arrange to have sample tiles delivered to your address to aid your decision in tile selection.

Ten Essential Steps to get the Best Re-roof for Your Home.
1. Install safety railing
At all times, safety is a priority. Before commencing any work guardrail is installed around the perimeter of the roof to prevent roof tilers from falling and to keep your family safe.
2. Remove old tiles
All the old roof tiles and ridge are removed.
3. Inspect roof
The roof timbers are inspected to make sure the battens are sound.
4. Install sarking
Sarking provides insulation and reflects up to 95% of radiant heat entering the roof.
5. Install new battens
New battens are installed ready for the new roof tiles to be laid.
6. Load up new tiles
Old tiles are removed and the new roof tiles are sent up to the roof using a conveyer system.
7. Start laying new tiles
Tiles are laid sequentially up the roof from the gutter line and fixing clips, or nails, are used to secure the roof tiles to the roof.
8. Ridge tiles installed
Ridge tiles are installed and bedded in place using mortar.
Pointing is a flexible material that covers the mortar and comes in a colour that matches the roof tile. It acts as a mechanical fastener, keeping the ridge in place. It is also used to finish the tiles at the gable or edge of the roof.
Guard-rail is removed and the site is tidied and any left over roof tiles removed.
