Roof Restorations in Townsville
There are some misconceptions about what roof restoration is. With MJD Roofing, you can be assured that you won’t be getting any kind of quick fix or simple aesthetic upgrade (although you can be assured that your roof will look much better and be structurally and functionally sound).
A roof restoration is a meticulous process that involves bringing your roof back to its original condition and extending its life dramatically.
The professional team at MJD Roofing is your premier roof restoration service in Townsville and we know that a professional job is only as good as the preparation work that precedes it.
Unfortunately, inferior roof restoration companies will neglect this process. Poor preparation is going to lead to problems just around the corner that will usually have to be repaired at the owner’s expense.
With MJD Roofing, you can be assured of comprehensive preparation and planning after a detailed analysis of your roof. This way, you get a roof that is truly restored in terms of strength and durability, as well as appearance.
At MJD Roofing, we know that restoring your roof is a significant time and financial commitment, which is why we provide all of our customers with an efficient and professional roofing service they can rely on.
Every single member of our team has a wealth of experience in roof restoration in Townsville and is committed to meeting our exceptionally high standards of quality. If you’re looking to transform your roof in an efficient and cost-effective way, you can rely on our expert team.
When Should I Choose A Roof Restoration Over A Roof Replacement?
A complete roof replacement can be expensive and we understand customers have a limited budget. A restoration can deliver similar results at a fraction of the price, making it the preferred option as long as the roof is not in complete disrepair.
The North Queensland climate can take its toll on your home. The baking summer sun, the torrential rain during the wet season and the occasional cyclone will all impact the structural integrity of your roof. Having your roof restored will:
- Repair any current or potential leaks
- Improve the energy efficiency of your home through better insulation
- Will also improve your home’s value
Our team will be completely honest when assessing your Townsville roof. If it has reached its use-by date, a replacement might be your only option. But in most cases, a restoration project can bring your roof back to life.
The Benefits Of Roof Restoration
Replacing your entire roof is a significant investment, as the cost of materials and labour are considerable. However, restoring your roof demands much less labour and materials, making it much more affordable. With these cost savings, you can renovate other areas of your home.
It Increases The Value Of Your Home
Restoring your roof can also increase the value of your home, should you ever decide to put it on the market. Installing a brand-new roof is a great way to improve its visual appeal and attract potential buyers.
It Offers Tax Benefits
While an entire roof replacement is regarded as capital expenditure, a roof restoration is classed as a maintenance expense. You will pay less tax on upkeep by withdrawing the current reduction rather than capitalising the cost and then recovering it via depreciation.
Roofs depreciate after 39 years, so as most rooftops are functional for 20 years, it’s a good idea to keep your current roof in good condition for as long as possible.
Every year, piles of roofing waste are disposed of in landfills. Restoring your roof is a more eco-friendly option than a roof replacement as it allows you to recycle your roof’s materials.
Replacing your roof also requires the production of new tiles and sheathing, which produces a lot of harmful waste. Roof restorations only incorporate the roofing materials, not the sheathing.
When Should I Choose A Roof Restoration?
If the paintwork on your roof has started to degrade or your roof has sustained significant water damage, it might be time to consider restoring it. It’s also a good idea to inspect your roof for any cracks, holes or other damage.
All roofs age and degrade over time, and external factors such as moisture, pollution, trees and poor weather conditions can speed up this process.
Your roof should have a functional lifespan of at least 20 years, but it will still require repairs as it ages. If your roof is under 20 years old and needs frequent repairs, a roof restoration is a perfect option.
The best times of year to have your roof restored are spring and autumn, as the process will be completed before the colder season begins. However, autumn is our busiest time, so be sure to book your consultation as soon as possible.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Do Full Roof Restorations Involve?
This process goes beyond basic repairs. Instead of focusing on individual parts that may be failing, it involves assessing the entire roof as a whole. You will receive a comprehensive inspection, a thorough cleaning to get rid of hidden debris, mould and other elements that can damage your roof, repairs and replacements of all failing parts and a protective coating to give your roof many more years of life.
Are Roof Restorations Limited To Houses?
No. You can have the roof restored on any construction. This includes unit complexes, commercial buildings and more. Any building with a roof can enjoy restoration.
How Long Does A Roof Restoration Take?
Typically a roof restoration will only take a few days. This depends on the condition of the roof, the weather and the volume of work required. MJD Roofing Services will always be transparent about timelines and strive to minimise disruptions to your life as much as possible.
