Roof Restorations in Canberra?

By PinkJellyBean - 2 May 2013 6

After some recent additions to our home we currently have two different coloured roof tiles and we need the capping re-bedded and pointed.

I have had 2 quotes on having the roof painted. The cheapest being just over $7,000 and the other being $11,000
Our roof is not small so I was prepared to pay more then the advertised $3,000 that you see regularly advertised but I wasnt prepared for the $11,000 quote.

We are only painting the roof for cosmetic reasons and it has to be done due to having a mixture of green and brown tiles (the tiles are no longer made so we had to go for the second hand option).

I am after recommendations for companies that people have used for a restoration job.

[ED – Positive recommendations only people]

What’s Your opinion?

Try Kane at All Top Roofing as well. They are about to complete work at my house and all has been a positive experience so far. http://www.alltoproofing.com.au

pptvb – Thankyou for your recommendation. I will give him a call.
KT67 – Thankyou to you aswell, I will look them up.

I have been through the archives and have seen the horror stories and peoples comments that it is a waste of money etc etc.
I have no other expectations other then it will change the colour of my tiles, and if done correctly should last. I intend to stay very clear of the companies mentioned in other stories as being dodgy and difficult to deal with.
I am also looking into changing the roof to colourbond as another alternative and if the cost isnt that much more then It will be the option we go with.

I would suggest doing a search of The Riot Act’s archives may save you a lot of grief, and I’ll leave it at that.

I used Auspro Roofing a few years ago when I live out in Tuggers, they did an excellent job and were well priced compared to some other quotes.

Nev Spencer is awesome. ( 0412386990)
He isn’t a fly-by-night roof painter. He is a roof tiler by trade
They did a great job re-bedding, pointing & then painting our (26sq) roof.
They also cleaned up after themselves!
He even pulled our spare tiles out from under the house & painted them the same colour as the roof so our spares would match!!
I have happily recommended him to friends & family, and they have done the same.
