Expect to pay $15 to $35 per square metre for the cost of a roof restoration, however, price may increase depending on your requirements. Consider a 150m2 roof tile restoration, it may cost from $4,700 to $6,300. Prices vary depending on the amount of roof maintenance required, area, and your location.

In most cases, roof replacement is not the best solution. If you notice a few signs of damage or mould build up on your tiled roof, another option is restoration. This involves cleaning, repainting and replacing broken tiles to improve the longevity of the structure.

Replacing a few tiles affected by damage may cost more than simply cleaning the entire roofing structure. Always request for accurate quotations from local roof restoration specialists to know what to expect.

How Much Do Roof Restoration Experts Cost?

Roof restoration professionals have varied rates in terms of labour. The difference in labour pricing is caused by market changes, your location and industry experience of your Tradie.

Factors that Influence the Cost of Roof Restoration

Access difficulties and scope of work are few of the common factors that determine roof restoration prices. Read the following aspects to help you define your requirements and allocate your roofing expenses.

1. Roof condition

The condition of your roof is the major factor that affects your roof restoration cost. Your local roofing specialist will inspect your roof to see the level of detail work to perform. Restoration jobs that demand structural amendments attract increased costs.

Is cleaning required to remove algae, debris or moulds which may weaken the durability of your roof? Does it need repainting? Are the gutters in good condition? Will there be access difficulties? Prices may alter based on these concerns.

2. Bedding and pointing

The type of bedding and pointing you will use also adds to your expenses. The price of basic mortar bedding may differ from polymer bedding. Likewise, the cost of repointing roof ridge tiles may vary from the standard labour rate of repointing metal roofs.

3. Roof type

Metal roof restoration jobs may require a different process unlike with tiled roofs. Age-old metal roofs may need to be resealed or repainted to resolve aesthetic concerns. In some cases, replacing the entire sheet is necessary to avoid further leaks or damage.

Colorbond roof sheets cost anywhere between $13 to $37 depending on the type.

Tile roof restorations, on the other hand, involve repointing and replacing cracked tiles that show signs of structural issues. New installations can have an impact on the cost of roof restoration. Expect to pay around $3 to $5 per tile.

4. Additional charges

In some cases, large repairs are required to restore the look and functionality of your roof. This may mean spending extra for labour and materials. Replacement jobs also influence the cost of roof restoration services.

Note: Gutter guard upgrades are another factor that can impact on your cost. Specifying your requirements helps you manage your expenses.
