A cheap roof restoration quote could mean an inferior roof restoration.

If a cheap quote seems too good to be true, as the old saying goes, it usually is.

Although there are some roof restorers who may be able to offer you roof restorations at a cheap rate and still do a quality job, in general, a cheap quote should ring alarm bells and you should definitely do your research before proceeding.

A full roof restoration consists of more than making the roof ‘look good’ – a simple coat of paint can do that!

A full roof restoration should include:

  • Replacing broken tiles
  • Removal and replacement of old mortar (bedding) and valley irons
  • High pressure cleaning
  • Repainting, priming and sealing

Be wary of traders who offer a fixed price quote without an inspection, how can they possibly know the extent of restoration your roof requires without looking at it first?

A couple of ways that contractors will cut down on roof restoration costs:

  • Patchy paint jobs. Instead of repainting the whole roof the roof will be painted in patches and the layer of paint will be thin.
  • Broken tiles will be glued back together to be fixed rather than replacing whole tiles.
  • Bedding won’t be replaced, rather just painted over.
  • The roof will just be cleaned and painted and none of the maintenance done. This will leave your roof looking pretty, but that’s it, paint is purely cosmetic, it is the maintenance that is important!

Your roof restoration is not something you want to scrimp on, after all the roof is one of the most important structural elements of your home!

It can be extremely tempting to go with the cheapest quote, we get it, everyone wants to save money and no one wants to spend more than necessary! However more than just cost should be considered when restoring your roof.

Tips for choosing your roof restoration trader:

  • Always get multiple quotes.
  • Experience, previous jobs, testimonials and the ability to offer advice and answer your questions should be considered!

If at any point you doubt the ability or integrity of a roof restorer, you should proceed with caution; unfortunately there are many rogue roof traders out there but by adhering to the above advice you should be able to weed them out.
