Some of our most common Roof Repairs
Tile Repairs & Replacement
Royce Roofing are skilled and experience in all kinds of roof repairs, from general upkeep to replacement and repairs. Our roof repairs team will go over every inch of your roof searching for damages of any type. We treat your roof like our own.
When we come across broken or fractured tiles we will change them straight up, whether you have the tiles or we need to source them from our Tile Yard.
We can match you roof tiles to make sure there’s no mismatch tiles giving that uneven looking roof.
Rebedding & Pointing
Probably one of the most important roof repairs for anyone with a roof over their heads is the Re-Bedding & Pointing technique.
If the cement mortar under your ridge capping is loose and falling out, then this needs replacing asap. This is the cement structure that adheres the ridgecap to the roof. Rebedding helps prevent trapped moisture and thus mould on your property, so it is essential that you get a professional.
We Replace the Old with New
Refresh your roofing with Royce. This process is where we replace the old cement mortar that had no adhesion between the ridge and roof tiles and replace with a new cement mix.
After allowing that to dry we apply flexible pointing over the top to colour match (as close as possible) to your roof and leave everything watertight. Damaged or old roofing can cause loss of heating or cooling, which may impact your overall energy consumption. A fresh roof can also increase the value of your home and add a modern touch.
Valley Iron Replacement
It is very common to have valley irons rusting out in Australia, and when this happens it can deem your gutters near useless as the waterflow can directly go into the roof cavity. Plus, brittle iron is more exposed to harsh weather damage.
Valley irons are vital as they pool the water into your gutters.
If yours have rusted we can replace these with a brand new valley iron to keep things watertight.
Skim Over Technique
When your cement mortar ages but still holds onto your ridge gap we can apply flexible pointing (waterproof sealant) over the top to prolong the life of the mortar.
Our fieldworker will let you know if this is a viable option for your roof.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does my roof need replacing?
If you have an old property then you will likely need to replace your roof eventually. Leaks, poor insulation or change in heating/cooling and broken tiling can also indicate you may need a replacement. Harsh weather conditions can damage older roofs, so a good preventative measure is to replace it with a new roof. Its always good to get a quotation from a few parties regarding your roof health – it could just need minor repairs to get it to a watertight state or may need more.
Can I repair the roof myself?
While it might seem like money-saving option to DIY, we advise that you get a professional to check on your roof’s condition. There are a lot of safety measures that professionals put into place, and without these you may put yourself in danger. We highly recommend a professional service when working on roofs and gutters, and Royce Roofing can offer you a free quote when you call.
Is it better to repair or replace a roof?
Roof repairs can extend the lifespan of an old roof, and if you have minor damage or aging then you can likely just repair the roof, which can be a cost effective option. If you wish to maintain the quality of a brand new home, older properties may eventually require a complete replacement.
Why is repointing necessary?
Repointing is the process of taking out and replacing the mortar, or pointing, of your roof. It is important to prevent weather damage and slow down the deterioration of your roof. When done correctly it ensures you property is protected from mould growth and water damage.
How do I know if my roof needs repairing?
If you have found that the insulation of your home has changed, or if you live in an older property you may want to consider restoring your roof. Leaks and damaged tiles can also impact the integrity of your roof, and we advise you get a professional to inspect the property. Harsh weather conditions can impact your roof’s condition, and damage can worsen if overlooked.
