Roof Repair Experts on the Gold Coast
When you have a colour bond roof or metal roof, the grub washers can deteriorate over time and need replacement, otherwise you may end up getting bad leaks and compromising your roof’s conditions and stability. When the sand cement that holds your roof’s ridge capping begins to break apart, we’ll be there to repoint and re-bed or and install new capping as needed. A single gap in the bedding cement can be enough for a serious leak during a storm, so we use high-quality cement and flexible pointing, which we then reinforce.
A weep hole is a hole the size of a nail every 30cm along the top ridge pointing, allowing water to escape from underneath the top ridge. This weep hole is needed because cement is porous, and condensation builds up behind the cement in storms and rainy weather.
We use a variety of methods to secure valley cuts or gable end cuts. It’s common to find the cuts secured with silicon and flexible pointing – even tile chips jammed under the cuts. All these methods fail over time allowing the cut to slide out of position. The silicon or flexible pointing breaks down and lets go of the tile over time allowing the cut to slide and will cores your roof to leak from leaf build up. A galvanised clip is a permanent fixture securing the cuts for their required lifetime. We recommend a galvanised valley clip (superior permanent fixture) be used to secure all cuts.
A Roof Repair You Can be Proud of
When your old tiles are beyond repair, the team at Zoo Roof Restorations can replace your old roof tile with a new tile. This way your roof will be looking like new.
A valley seal is a strip of tar-like foam product that sits under your valley to prevent water, leaves and dirt from going into your roof cavity. (This is great for rooves with a bad leak).
Whirlybirds are a cost-effective way to cool your roof space. They remove a significant amount of heat from your home whilst reducing moisture and improving ventilation and airflow. The team can remove and replace your whirlybird to ensure proper airflow into your house.
