Pressure cleaning Excellent surface preparation is key to a long lasting restoration
Our cleaning procedure is as follows:
- Sand bag street gutter and set up bilge pump to ensure no water enters our waterways
- Block or divert downpipes that may enter water tanks or swimming pools etc
- Cover swimming pool if required
- Apply mould kill if required
- Pressure wash the surface of the tile with a whirl-a-way
- Pressure wash the nose of the tile with a variable lance
- Pressure wash the valley irons and valley cut tiles with a variable lance
- Pressure wash barge caps from every angle with a variable lance
- Pressure wash pointing with a variable lance
- Pressure wash all flashings with a variable lance
- Pressure wash all pipes & antenna
- Pressure wash solar panels & hot water systems
- Final thorough rinse down of entire roof
- Pressure wash out internal & external guttering
- Rinse down house, paths, fences, glass panels etc
Ensuring excellent surface preparation is key to a long lasting restoration, simply going over the roof once with a whirl-a-way is not sufficient to produce a perfectly clean surface.
It is vital to ensure these extra few steps are completed as they often hide a dirty surface that the primer will not adhere to and can cause premature wear and deterioration.
Repairs Repair work is carried out to ensure the roof is in as new condition and water tight
- Replace all broken tiles from under ridge caps
- Replace all broken tiles
- Seal around any penetration on the roof (TV antenna, stink pipes etc) using a quality polyurethane
- Repair any flashings if required
- Reset flashings if required
- Reset valley tiles and install valley clips to ensure no movement in future
- Clean debris from roof
- Blow roof down from work carried out
These repairs are undertaken in an extremely fussy manner to ensure the roof will weather every storm.
Pointing Pointing of the ridge caps is essential to ensure the ridge and hip tiles will not allow water ingress
- Re-bed any ridge & hip capping if required
- Apply flexible pointing to all ridge & hip capping
- Reinsert weep holes to keep with building standards
All pointing is carried out to a high standard ensuring a neat and uniform finish is achieved and all collars are rounded smoothly.
Completing the pointing as smoothly as possible will achieve a better end result once paint is applied.
Roof Painting Coating of the roof provides a water tight surface and a deep lustre that will outlast the original tile coating
- Blow down entire roof for a clean surface
- Mask all solar panels, skylights, hot water systems etc
- Apply a thick even coat of primer sealer (High build CT-401 for cement tile & W+ for Metal)
- Apply 2 colour coats by brush to all lead flashings, barge caps or any surface that can not be sprayed
- Apply a thick even layer of roof membrane
- Apply a second thick even layer of roof membrane
- Apply 1 even layer of NanoProtect SC-96
- Remove all masking plastic and tape
- Once dry inspect entire roof to ensure we are satisfied the job is complete
We have developed our coating techniques over many decades, cement tile roofs require a different coating technique to metal.
Our cement tile technique ensures the nose of the tile receives 6 coats total and all 3 coats are applied evenly over the entire surface with no thin areas and every angle of the tile is coated.
Our Metal roof technique involves 2 separate spraying methods to ensure all screws are coated evenly with the final layer achieving a perfect, even finish with no patchy areas.

Under normal environmental conditions, it should last over 20 years.
The durability of the coating on a painted roof depends on various factors, such as the quality of the paint, weather conditions, and the age of the roof.
Generally, a high-quality roof paint can last over 20 years, but this can vary depending on the above factors. Harsh weather conditions like heavy rain, extreme heat, and strong winds can reduce the lifespan of the coating. This is why we choose high-quality paint that is specifically designed for roofing and suitable for the climate in the Gold Coast area. Additionally, regular maintenance and cleaning can also help prolong the life of the coating, allowing you to enjoy a beautiful and protected roof for many years.
On average a restoration will take 3-4 days.

Roof restoration involves repairing and restoring a roof to its original condition, while roof painting is a cosmetic improvement that enhances the look of the roof. Roof restoration typically includes cleaning, repairing or replacing damaged tiles, repointing, and applying coatings or sealants to protect the roof from weather conditions. In contrast, roof painting is a process of applying paint to the roof’s surface to improve its appearance and provide additional protection against the elements.
While roof painting can be a part of the roof restoration process, it’s not a substitute for repairs and maintenance needed for a deteriorating roof. Therefore, if your roof needs more than a fresh coat of paint to restore it to its original condition, you should consider a roof restoration project to ensure long-lasting results.
