Roof restoration is an extremely popular choice for Australian home owners. A new coat of paint looks good but the brittle tiles remain underneath. The paint job can last as little as 5 -10 years before starting to fade, flake and peel off. To re-paint every few years can become a very expensive exercise. A better option is to replace your old roof materials with new lightweight roof shingles, offering up to 40 year manufacturers warranties. The initial cost will be a little higher but there will be considerable savings over the long term. Virtually all roof materials can be replaced without having to provide added reinforcement to the existing roof frame.
