We repair anything from broken and crack tiles to re sealing any leaks around chimneys and pipes. We can even replace any tiles or old corrugated iron sheets and patch up any holes in iron where necessary.
All the sealants that are used are water based products so that paint will adhere to the sealant.
If the roof is in bad condition i.e. badly flaking and bubbling paint then its best to get it stripped off. This is a more expensive procedure but will look a lot better and last you at least twice the amount of time than a roof re paint.
All of the above procedures are followed other than the stripping. A coat of paint stripper is applied to the roof surface using an airless spray gun. After the appropriate amount of time for the stripper to work has passed then the surface is pressure cleaned as above to remove all paint. In some cases the roof will need two coats of the stripper (depending on the age and amount of paint on the surface)
If the roof is in good order i.e. not much flaking paint, then the roof surface will just need the standard procedure. This involves the entire surface to be pressure cleaned using up to 4000 psi to remove all dirt, grime, mould etc. to provide a clean and even surface for the painting. In the areas around chimneys or some trees that are severally stained then a citrus cleaning agent will be applied. After the cleaning process is completed then a coat of seal rust will be applied to seal off any rust from further developing. The roof will then be coated using an airless spray gun and brush with two coats of a premium quality exterior paint to the colour and sheen chosen by the client.
We can do any minor repairs to the mortar along the ridge where needed. Any nails on the ridge will be knocked back into place before job begins. If roof has mould, lichen or moss present then the appropriate cleaning agent will be applied prior to cleaning process. Roof is then pressure washed using up to 4000psi to remove all of the above and dirt. The surface is then left to dry, this is determined by the percentage of moisture in the tiles. When levels reach below 12% moisture then one coat of acrylic tile sealer is applied. Followed by two coats of premium exterior acrylic paint applied by airless spray and brush.
