Do you suspect that the condition of your tiled roof has diminished significantly over recent years? Your roof’s age may reveal itself in the subtle signs of cracking, broken tiles or even a build-up of moss or lichen. Many homeowners are only aware of their roof’s actual condition once they reach out to a roofing contractor, only to discover their roof is far beyond the help of a roof restoration and requires a roof replacement. So how exactly do the experts determine the line between a roof still viable for repair and one needing replacement? This article will share some of our key considerations when contemplating the best renovation options for Adelaide’s rooftops. If you’re weighing the pros and cons of these services, be sure to stay tuned!
The benefits of a roof replacement over a restoration
Improved roof performance
The performance of a new insulated COLORBOND® roof is a significant improvement over older tiles, regardless of whether they have been recently restored. A new COLORBOND® roof will have notably increased insulation in terms of thermal and acoustic performance compared to the original tiled roof. Home occupants usually report noticing a noise reduction, especially during heavy rain. Yet the benefits of insulation aren’t limited to your home’s acoustics. The increased thermal insulation of an insulated COLORBOND® roof often results in lower heating and cooling costs.
Roof Weight reduction
Thermal mass effect
Increased aesthetic appeal
Warranty and property value
When should I consider a roof restoration?
Ultimately, a roof’s current condition and age determine whether a roof replacement or restoration is the best way forward. Venerable roofs that have served their purpose for over 40 years are generally ideal candidates for a roof replacement. This is especially true if they have been neglected and remained in a porous state for a prolonged period. In such cases, there can be so many broken tiles and leak points that restoration becomes very expensive and offers less value when compared to a total roof replacement.
