Roof Restorations in Canberra?

PinkJellyBean 2 May 2013 7

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]

I used Luke from Van Duren roof resteration, the quote for my roof was very good, for the great job they did.
Luke was clean and professional, and very easy to deal with.
I am happy with my roof, and will use them again.
I highly recommend them as a very professional team to deal with.

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.

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.
