Roof restoration is an extremely popular choice for Australian home owners. A new coat of paint looks good but the old tiles still exist. 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 shingles, offering manufacturers warranties of 30 and 40 years. The initial cost will be a little higher but there will be considerable savings over the long term. We can replace all types of roofing without having to provide added reinforcement to the existing frame. Australia has new shingle system that has been protecting North American homes for a century.
