PARAMOUNT Roof Restorations Sydney
Re Roofing - Tiles
Restoration and maintenance on your roof will keep it looking great. Eventually, however, the roof will need replacing. Paramount offers a full range of roof replacement materials in iron, cement tile and terra cotta. Whenever a home is built the framework is designed to carry a certain load. To this end, it is usually not possible to replace an iron or corrugated roof with a tiled roof without major structural alterations. You can, however, replace a tiled roof with an iron roof if you wish. When looking at replacing your roof always be aware of the load that the structure is supporting and replace with a like or lighter material.
Both Cement and Terra Cotta roofs have been around for years. In simple terms the cement tile is made from a cement mould and then painted, a terra cotta roof is made from clay with the natural colours being evident. In some cases terra cotta tiles are glazed much like a vase or garden pot.
The technological improvements in manufacture have improved the performance in all types of tiles over the years, so when changing a tiled roof you can be comfortable in knowing it will probably not need to be done again. In our experience we have found tiled roofs over seventy years old need replacing. Roofs younger than this may also need replacing depending on a variety of factors. The environment, for one, has an influence on the longevity of the roof. In areas close to the sea, for example, there is evidence of perishing, from the under side of older terra cotta tiles. In some cement tiles the tile may look fine from the outside, however the covered water course may have weathered away.
Re Roofing - Metal
There is a real difference between roofing a new house and re-roofing an existing home. Most existing homes already have established gardens and living areas. The ceilings are existing and the timberwork may need some maintenance. To achieve the results you want, without causing damage or too much disruption, takes years of experience. Paramount offers this experience along with product knowledge, licensed trades and colour selections. We also advise on the material profile to suit the pitch of the roof and environmental conditions.
