The Most Trusted Roof Restoration Brisbane Has To Offer
Roof restoration is not a project that home or business owners are engaged with regularly. If your roof was professionally installed using high quality and Australian Made products – they are going to last for a very long time.
However, due to extreme weather conditions, roof naturally becomes worn or damaged. When left untreated for an extended time, it can create massive damage to the property. The good news is that in many cases, you can have your roof restored rather than fully replaced. It just takes a professional to assess the issue and provide a trusted recommendation.
Restoration in Brisbane does not need to be a stressful experience. With us, you can rest assured that we will offer you hassle and stress-free roof restoration services at affordable prices. Our team is on time and within budget all of the time.
When does a roof really need to be restored?
It’s normal to see a bit of fade or build up on a roof over time. This cosmetic change doesn’t mean you should panic or rush to have your roof redone. It takes a bit more to require a restoration.
However, when you see the right signs, it pays to move quickly toward the restoration. Wait too long and let the roof experience further damage, and you might find yourself facing a much more costly replacement instead. Keep these indicators in mind as you consider whether you need restoration in Brisbane:
- Missing tiles, panels, or trim pieces that expose the substructure
- Cracking or flaking coatings that cause panels to deteriorate
- Corrosion of panels or hardware with excessive rust
- Built up moss, mildew, or mold that welcome moisture
- Repeated accumulation of debris in channels, ridges, or joints
What are the steps included in a roof restoration?
A licensing contractor will start by assessing the extent of the damage and the materials needed including any replacement tiles, sheeting, or trim. From there, the steps could vary based on what your roof is made of. At a high level, you can expect:
- Manual review and removal of any large debris or loose roof
- Wash the existing roof to create a smooth clean surface
- Replace or repair any deteriorated hardware or screws
- Install new tiles or panels to remove overly worn or compromised sections
- Apply new paint or coating for a fresh and even look.
How long does it take to restore a roof in Brisbane?
Again, this can vary, but faster is not always better. Look for a detail-oriented contractor focused on getting the job done right. It’s largely dependent on the extent of the damage and the size of the roof. If the team experiences inclimate weather, they’ll have to wait to get started. This can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, but for a typical home in Australia, it will likely take 4-5 days.
How much does it cost?
One advantage to restoration is that it is much cheaper than a full replacement. You can make use of many of the materials and structures already in place. A contractor will be charged with bringing new life into the roof. But what will you be charged for this service?
It can vary depending on how poor the condition of the roof is. A straightforward cleaning and refinishing is less involved than replacing tiles or panels, although that’s certainly an option, too. The size of the roof also comes into play, since larger areas logically take more time to restore.
A professional roofer should provide you with an estimate based on all of the factors that are unique to your roof. On average, a roof restoration will cost $2,500-4,000. The table below breaks out these costs a bit more.

Does it come with a warranty?
Yes, but these are often in two varieties. The first is the manufacturer warranty, which will apply (often separately) to the replacement materials or paint that’s applied. These typically offer anywhere from 10-25 years of coverage, so be sure to get the necessary paperwork from your contractor.
The second is the workmanship warranty, which will be different for each contractor. Standard warranties for this cover six years so you can be sure your roofing is restored and repaired properly and made to last.

Frequently asked questions about roof restoration in Brisbane
Should I restore or replace my roof?
If your roof is in good enough condition for a restoration, this is the best budget option. You can still extend the life of your roof, protect it from the elements, and even update the overall look.
Replacement comes into play in instances where the restoration would be too costly to bring value. If you need a significant number of tiles replaced, for example, it might make more financial sense to upgrade your roof with a full replacement in a more durable material like metal sheeting. Another factor here is the condition or damage to the substructure. If water or pests have compromised the framing and supports, you may need a full replacement. This will allow a roofing contractor to remove everything, eliminate the damage, and install a brand new roof that will last for decades.
How long will the restoration last?
This is not a shortcut by any means. A comprehensive restoration by a professional contractor can last 20-25 at minimum. They’ll make sure everything is aligned, sealed, and coated correctly so that you can get more life out of your existing roofing material.
Does it add value to a home?
Absolutely. To start with, your neighbors will probably thank you since they’ll have something much nicer to look at. But aside from appearance, restoring a roof will ensure that the structure and home below are well protected. This is attractive to prospective buyers, who appreciate the work being done before they move in and the security of a solid roof.
Will I need to do regular maintenance on my restored roof?
Not at all. The natural cleansing power of the rain will take care of almost all of the work for you. If you notice dirt or other debris starting to build up, you can rinse it with plain water or have a service gently power wash it clean again.
