RE-ROOFING

The roof is your homes’ first line of defence against the harsh Australian environment so re-roofing can be the single greatest improvement to your homes’ appearance, value and performance. It makes sense to consider the benefits of an actual roof replacement as a one-off, long term solution.

Why Re-Roof With Monier?

The roof can make up to 30% of your homes façade, so it has a major bearing on the overall look. Re-roofing creates an opportunity to refresh the design of your home

Increase the re-sale value to your home by 3% when re-roofing with Monier roof tiles

Reduce the need for ongoing maintenance of an old roof by using the best products available on the market today. This will also deter additional expenses you may incur by completing a quick fix solution

Improve the performance of your roof by adding insulation and ventilation to your roof space and consider sarking if your roof cavity doesn’t already have it. These factors alone will increase indoor comfort and further protect your home from the harsh Australian conditions

In some cases, the cost of repairing, fixing, or recolouring an existing roof can cost just as much – if not more – than the cost of undertaking a full re-roof

Consider installing Monier Solar Roofing products including INLINEsolar™ and SOLARtile™ to encourage energy savings without compromising the street appeal of your home

 

OUR EXTENSIVE PRODUCT RANGE WILL PROTECT AND KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE FROM THE ELEMENTS BY KEEPING THE HEAT IN AND THE COLD OUT, AND ADD A STYLISH FINISHING TOUCH TO YOUR HOME.

 

UNDERSTANDING THE RE-ROOFING PROCESS.

MONIER'S 10 STEP RE-ROOFING PROCESS

Re-roofing can take 2 to 4 days to complete, depending on the size of the roof. There are 10 steps to the re-roofing process.

1. INSTALL SAFETY RAIL

Safety is a priority. Before commencing any work Monier guardrail is installed around the perimeter of the roof to prevent roof tilers from falling and to keep your family safe.

9. POINTING

Pointing is a flexible material that covers the mortar and comes in a colour that matches the roof tile. It acts as a mechanical fastener, keeping the ridge in place. It is also used to finish the tiles at the gable or edge of the roof.
