Over the years, exposure to various elements and chemicals have caused the deterioration of the quality and appearance of your roof. Using roof restoration, Maitland Roofing can help return your roof to the way it looked when it was first built – even better, in fact. The entire restoration process may employ a number of methods, including roof pressure cleaning, painting, and sealing.
Cement tile restoration
Cement tiles are usually in need of restoration 10 years after it was first built, although depending in your area, it might need to be restored after as early as five years. For cement tile roof restoration, Maitland Roofing typically uses re-bedding and pointing. A good way to tell if your roof needs to be restored is to look for any cracked, chipped, or broken tiles, and to see if the ridge needs to be pointed or re-bed. Look also for moss and lichens, and any colour fading on the roof.
Terracotta tile restoration
Terracotta tiles begin to deteriorate once they lose their shine. They begin to break and become brittle, and become susceptible to moss and lichen growths that contribute to the spread of moulds and damp areas inside your home.
