The work involved in restoring a roof is not a menial task. In fact it is work that requires professional skills and tons of experience along with it. Despite what some people say about their ability in a DIY dare, but at Roofing Corp, we know better. We have been involved in the restoration of roofs for 20 years and all of our customers have showered us with praise for work well done. It takes more than just a heave of an implement to discard the damaged tile and installing a replacement tile. It needs experience and expertise.
Only the toughest roofing materials
Cement tiles for roofing fall into 2 main types. The standard cement tile roofing material and the specially imported French Terracotta cement tile roofing material. Both are outstanding materials for covering any roof. Ordinary cement tile roofing can remain usable for 50 years while the terracotta tiles add another 20 years. The ordinary cement tiles are not subjected to blasts of heat in a kiln as the terracotta tiles are but both are extremely strong and have laminated exterior covering.
Natural wear and tear
Needless to say, the roof is the first and most bombarded area of the house. It is exposed to the full force of the wind and rain. In the higher altitudes, it comes into constant contact with hail, sleet and snow. It becomes subject to the stresses of the thawing and cooling effects and as a result may succumb to cracks and breaks that finally lead to deteriorating and crumbling effects. The protective laminated surface is the first to surrender to the forces of nature but nature itself is not the only cause of damage.
Human generated damage
Over time, after the initial covering of the cement tiles is worn away, further natural impacts will slowly wear away the exposed cement underneath rendering the tiles weaker and more susceptible to human damage. Flying projectile thrown inadvertently or deliberately into the air by occupants or residents of nearby houses can easily creak or break off pieces of roofing tile. Objects like stones, bats, buckets, bottles and many others all have the capability of damaging the cement tiles. We strongly advise that you liaise with us to conduct periodic inspections of your roof.
