Roof repairs are a broad field of work. Although you probably think of your roof as one big part of your home, there’s actually a lot more to it than you’d think. It’s kind of like repairing a vehicle – the word ‘repair’ can mean a lot of different things, from changing a flat tyre to rebuilding the entire engine.

Luckily, the team at Royce Roofing, Melbourne’s finest in roof repair, are here to explain the various types of repairs for your roof. By the end of this post, you should know exactly what type of repair you’re in need of.

High pressure clean

Got a roof that needs to take a good bath? It’s normal for your roof to become dirty with moss, lichen, and general dirt and dust that accumulates over the years. A high pressure clean can take care of all of these nasties in just a matter of hours. Royce Roofing offer a top quality roof cleaning service, using state-of-the-art pressure washers to blast off any dirt and grime, making your roof look brand new again.

High pressure cleaning isn’t just about keeping up appearances – it’s about structural maintenance, too. Moss, for example, has little roots called rhizoids which can weaken your tiles and eventually lead to roof leaks if left long enough.

Tile replacement

If you’ve got a fair few broken tiles that need replacing, then a professional can definitely help out. Broken tiles make your roof more susceptible to roof leaks, so there’s no reason to wait around when you have a number of broken tiles. Royce Roofing match the tiles on your roof with their array of used tiles, stocking over 200 pallets of different roof tiles.

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. If valley irons have rusted, Royce Roofing can replace these with a brand new ones, keeping your roof watertight and preventing serious damage due to rain.

Gutter repairs

Rusted gutters are just useful. That’s why Royce Roofing can help get your gutters back on track, or handle all-out replacements.

Roof restoration

Full-scale roof restorations can be carried out when your roof tiles are aging and deteriorating. With a high-pressure clean, necessary repairs and a fresh coat of paint, your roof is given an extra 15 years of life.
