Spring in Melbourne… is there a better time of the year in this beautiful city? Your barbie gets wheeled out from the garage and dusted off, Grand Final preparations get made, and you can go back to drinking your favourite beer after winter turned you into a red wine drinker.

And another perk of coming out of hibernation is that we all get a little house-proud and start tidying up our homes.

If you’re looking to beautify your roof after a drizzly, stormy winter, Royce Roofing are here to help you out. Here’s our ultimate roof spring cleaning checklist which we use on every Melbourne home:

  1. Clear the debris
    Sticks and stones may break your bones, but they also make your roof look a shambles too. So, yeah – we get rid of those rogue branches that littered your roof after a stormy Melbourne night. The longer you leave those leaves and branches, the quicker they’ll start going mouldy on your roof.
  2. High-pressure clean
    Then, we like to start with a high-pressure clean. It’s the most satisfying part of the spring cleaning checklist, watching all that muck being blasted off your roof. We use an industrial grade high-pressure cleaner that actually works, unlike that cheap thing you borrowed off your neighbour last year. Mould and mildew is no match for our gear.
  3. Roof tile inspection
    It’s always best to take advantage of your expert roofers while they’re up on your roof – that’s why we do a roof tile inspection during our spring cleaning checklist. If there are any damaged or loose roof tiles, we’ll let you know and see about fixing them.
  4. Flashing and pointing
    We’ll also inspect your flashing, ridge capping and pointing. These structural parts of your roof are some of the most crucial to its integrity, which is why we thoroughly check them during a spring clean.
  5. Roof space
    If you’ve got a roof space, we’ll take a look in there for you, too. Even newly-replaced roofs can succumb to sneaky leaks after the stormy season of winter. The last thing you want is to discover a roof leak 3 months after your roof clean – when your roofers could have easily prevented the problem. That’s why we’re proactive and check while we’re there.
  6. Gutter clean
    And finally, we take care of your gutters, getting rid of all that gunk that clogs them up over winter. We do a thorough inspection and make any repairs if necessary.
