After first inspecting this roof we found it to be in a less than fantastic condition. The original coatings had faded significantly, leaving the once impressive property looking old and drab. More importantly, we discovered the ridge caps were starting to come loose and were in danger of blowing off if the roof restoration Narre Warren project was not conducted soon.
The ornamental ridge caps made this particular job quite tricky. As you can see in these photos, parts of the housetop had special ridge caps running along its length (primarily along the top ridge). Due to their age and unique profile, replacements for these special tiles would be very difficult to find.
Our expert tradespeople were patient and delicate when removing the old mortar, knowing that breaking or damaging these particular caps would not impress the Customer and be counterproductive to the restoration job – leaving us in the awkward positing of sourcing and replacing these expensive, hard to acquire roof tiles.
Once the old, cracked and crumbling mortar was removed we applied a new layer of bedding to sit the tiles onto. After making sure the caps were secure, pointing was administered to protect the bedding and prolong the life of the roof restoration. Afterwards we coated the roof using our industry leading four coat system, insuring the bedding, pointing and tiles were protected from the elements and remain looking new for years to come.
