A Terracotta Roof Restorations Melbourne by Casey Roof Care starts with creating a safe work environment for us to carry out your roof repairs. 99% of the time this involves installing hand safely rails around the perimeter of your roof. This not only protects us from hazardous falls, but it is also required by law. If your contractor is going to perform work on your roof without installing safety rail, consider what other shortcuts they may be taking on your roof repairs. Where the situation makes the installation of hand safely rails impracticable, we work with full body harnesses under a strict Safe Work Method Statement as to how the work will be performed safely.
Once we have made the working environment safe, we need to inspect the water courses and flashing to make sure the roof is water tight. What happens next is we blast the tiles with high pressure water. This removes all pollution, lichen and moss from the tiles.
Next we strip the bedding and remove all traces of the old mortar. Then we mix our own custom blend of sand, cement, aggregate together with a concrete plasticizer, similar (but stronger) to how they made it decades ago. You can read more on how and why we do this in the articles section on our website. To finish it off we use a cyclone rated pointing compound applied by a highly experienced and knowledgeable tradesmen who will ensure it’s correct application.
Our focus is on providing a quality product with a high level of customer engagement. We are not interested in taking on these types of jobs where an investor is looking to flip the house and wants a quick fix. We take pride in our work and always do a very thorough job to the highest standard possible.
