Make your terracotta roof beautiful again with the help of a professional roof restoration.
The process for restoring a terracotta roof is quite straight-forward, however without the aid of a professional roofer and their equipment, you could be looking at a very long, time consuming process and could cause unintentional damage to your roof by using incorrect treatments. Service central recommends you use a professional roof restorer to ensure a great end result.

Your roof restoration professional will begin by replacing all broken and damaged tiles. This ensures that they have a perfect roof to begin with. They will then apply a mould remover and antifungal treatment to the roof in order to loosen the lichen and moss. It will also help to kill any spores and prevent regrowth.
High pressure cleaning is then used to clear away the loosened moss. With the moss removed the tiles are restored to their former glory and you can clearly see the bright colour again.
Next the roofing professional will rebed the ridgecaps, where necessary. This involves lifting the ridge caps and removing the old concrete underneath and replacing it with new concrete. Once this is done, they will then apply flexible pointing to all the capping on the roof.
And there you have it, your terracotta roof restored to its former glory. After reading this article, are you thinking to yourself, ‘I want my roof restored,’? If so, simply post your roof restoration job with Service Central and have the professionals come to you!
