Experimenting in the kitchen can be loads of fun. Whether you’ve tried a new favourite food at a restaurant, or have stumbled across a winning recipe online, it’s good to break out of the cycle of meals you usually make.

It’s all good fun, going out and buying all the ingredients, until you realise you need some obscure, specific utensil upon which the entire dish relies. Then, you hold up your white flag and whip out the UberEats.

Repairing a roof is similar. Nope, it has nothing to do with UberEats – but you do need a number of very specific tools and materials to get the job done right.

Here, we consult the legends at Royce Roofing about which materials are needed to repair a roof, and why it’s always best left to a professional roofer.


A roofer has no shortage of tools when he or she climbs up on your roof. Your roof is a large, complex part of your home, which has many different materials and components. A roofer usually wears a large belt that is used to carry a whole array of roofing tools, such as a nail gun, caulking gun, hammer, tin snips, measuring tape and many others. Larger tools required to repair a roof include saw horses, circular saws and others.


When a roofer is contracted to repair or replace tiles, you can bet they’re carrying plenty of roof tiles for the job. It can be tricky matching tiles exactly when repairing a roof, but thankfully Royce Roofing have a large stockyard with over 250 pallets of different roof tiles. That variety is simply unbeatable!

Roofing products

Roofing products are an essential part of repairing a roof. From pointing membrane to caulk and more, a roofer would be lost without their specialised products. Not only is it important to have these products on hand at all times, but it’s equally important to be skilled and experienced in applying them. And no, YouTube doesn’t count.

Safety equipment

And finally, safety equipment is another imperative component of the materials needed when repairing a roof. Roofers need extensive safety equipment to do their job, including steel-capped boots, hardhats, ropes and harnesses, purpose-built ladders and hoists – and that’s just the start of it!
