Roof restoration can make a big difference in the appearance of your home or commercial property and help to protect your roof from the elements, so that it can last for years to come. Often, homeowners and commercial property owners look at their roofs and know that some type of work needs to be done because it is simply not looking as good as it once did.

But is the right solution repair or restoration?
The answer will depend upon a number of key factors and vary based upon the type of roof that you have. Read on to learn more about what to look for when considering a roof restoration for three of the most popular types of roofs:
Tile Roof Restorations
Although tiles are cured during the manufacturing process to make them durable, no tile roof can resist the factors that cause aging forever. A tile roof that could benefit from restoration will often look as if it is spotted with visible areas of light and dark along its surface. These colour variations indicate that part of the roof has faded due to the sun or been weathered by chemical pollutants or rain. Issues with missing, cracked or otherwise damaged tiles cannot be corrected with restoration alone. Repairs will need to be made prior to treatment.
Metal Roof Restorations
Metal roofs are incredibly strong and don’t readily crack or break like tiles, but metal is easily affected by moisture, chemical pollutants and other environmental factors. Metal roofs may develop spotty deposits that detract from their appearance. In commercial settings, particularly on the roofs of restaurants and adjacent buildings, the metal may also become caked with grease and look as if it is peeling. Restoration can help to correct signs of weathering; however, roofs that have corroded or are showing signs of rust will require replacement or repair rather than traditional restoration.
Asphalt Shingles Restorations
Most asphalt shingle roofs will require major repairs or replacements within 15 or 20 years of when they are built, and minor shingle replacements may also become necessary if shingles are lost due to winds or begin to curl at the corners. These types of matters require roof repairs, not restoration; however, roof restoration can help to remove discolouration caused by algae and other microbes. Restoration can also help to bring out the colour of shingles that have faded in the sun.
