What is Roof Restoration?
The Roof Restoration process basically involves the Cleaning, Repairing, Re-sealing & Re-Painting of Concrete roofing tiles. Faded Colourbond roofs & un-glazed Terracotta roofs may also benefit from this application.
So I designed the restoration process for concrete roof tiles to stop or slow the process of roof tile surface deterioration.
It’s important to know that your roof tiles will begin to Oxidize and go powdery after a few years. So over time, the oxide powder will soil in and around your gutters. Importantly, this will restrict the flow of water and even limit the life of your gutters. Once the original coating has left the tile surface the tile will then begin to suffer from surface erosion.
What is Surface Erosion?
Surface erosion involves the pitting of the sand cement component of your tiles. Therefore the surface is at a more advanced state of deterioration.
Alan’s Roof Restoration has been in the business of roof restoration for over 40 Years. And, at Alan’s Roof Restoration I treat every roof individually. I have sealers and coating to suit a variety of roof tile or metal roof surfaces. Catering to very old roofs to fairly new roofs.
Concrete Roof Tiles are normally only cleaned where the intention is to re-seal & re-paint/coat the roof tiles surface after.
There have been various makers of Concrete/Cement roofing tiles over the years. Some have performed very well & others have performed poorly.

Terracotta Roof Tiles are normally cleaned to have the moss and lichen removed. Terracotta tiles are made from natural clay which is usually a moist material. Therefore moss and lichen is attracted to the roof tiles surface. If left it will grow and most likely restrict the flow of rainwater. Then the rainwater will not flow freely over the surface of the tiles into the roofs gutters.
An application of an environmentally friendly anti-fungal solution should be applied to all moss & lichen prior to undertaking the roof cleaning process.
