Your home is usually the biggest and most important asset in your life, with all your worldly possessions under one roof. So, what happens when the roof starts to show a little wear and tear?
In this latest blog, we’re talking about tile roof repair vs roof restoration, the differences involved and which would be a better choice for your home.
Tiled Roof Repairs
It’s best to take up the option of roof repairs if the roof is under 10 years old or a full roof restoration doesn’t fit in with your budget.
Our team can assist with cleaning and roof repairs, but we will advise you if we believe your roof requires restoration work.
The age and condition of your roof may also be another indication that more significant repairs are necessary. We have found that tiled roofs aged between 10-15 years and without regular attention will have to undergo some degree of repair or maintenance due to the porous nature of concrete roof tiles and the natural movement of homes in weather conditions.
Tiled Roof Restoration
We highly recommend a roof restoration because it helps maintain a tiled roof, enhances the overall appearance, is a more cost effective solution and adds protection to the aged roof tiles with a protective roof membrane coating.
When we restore a tiled roof the process involves:
- High pressure cleaning
- Minor repairs with the replacement of any broken, cracked or chipped tiles.
- Rebedding and Repointing of the Ridgecapping
- Re-painting the roof.
The JMZ Warranty
JMZ offer a dual 10-year warranty on workmanship and materials. Competitors generally offer a 7-10 year warranty on the workmanship only.
Regular Roof Maintenance
Whichever option you choose – repairs or restoration – it is still vital that your roof undergoes regular roof tile maintenance. We also like to inform our clients that most home and contents insurance companies will not cover damage if it is shown that general maintenance has not been undertaken by the homeowner.
