Some of our most common Roof Repairs
Tile Repairs & Replacement
Tiles repairs and replacements are incredibly common, and handled by the crew at Royce Roofing on a daily basis. The roof repairs team go over every inch of your roof searching for damages of any type. Damaged tiles are repaired or replaced straight away, thanks to the enormous array of spare tiles in the Royce Roofing Tile Yard. No matter the type of tile, we stock over 4,000 tiles so we should be able to find a good match.
Re-bedding & Repointing
Your roof pointing is one of the most crucial parts of your roof. This is the cement mortar that fixes your ridge capping to the top of your roof, preventing moisture from seeping into it, which can create awful damage to your home.
If the cement mortar under your ridge capping is loose and falling out, then this needs a re-bedding and pointing treatment. It’s essential to hire a professional like the crew at Royce Roofing for a job like repointing the ridge capping, as getting this wrong can cost you later down the track.
How Repointing Works
The legends at Royce Roofing remove the old cement mortar between the ridge and roof tiles which lacks adhesion and replace it 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.
Valley Iron Replacement
A valley iron is a metal flashing installed underneath roof tiles to allow excess water to be released into the gutter. It’s 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. If valley irons have rusted we can replace these with a brand new ones, keeping your roof watertight and preventing serious damage due to rain.
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.

Benefits of roof repairs in Melbourne
Roof repairs aren’t something to be put off, and most of the time they’re a necessary procedure that saves your roof from demise, rather than one that provides a couple of benefits. The benefits of roof repairs are basically limitless… especially if you enjoy living with a roof over your head!
- Prevention of further, costlier damage
One of the main reasons to get your roof repaired as soon as possible in Melbourne is due to the prevention of bigger, costlier, scarier repairs. Roof repairs prevent all sorts of damage to your home, including ceiling damage, wall damage, paint damage, foundation issues and more.
- Improved heating and cooling efficiency
Melbourne is a city with hot summers and cold winters. What does this mean? Your HVAC unit gets an absolute thrashing. Damaged or old roofing can cause loss of heating or cooling through holes in your roof, which may impact your overall energy consumption. Fix your roof, and you’ve fixed your energy bills too.
- Added home value
Roofs are rigorously checked over during building inspections, and if anything off-putting is found, it can lower the value of your home. Fixing roof issues before this point is a reassuring thing to do, which adds value to your home.
