ROOF RESTORATIONS

We know that your roof can make up to 30% of the external façade of your house, so keeping it in top condition is important. Not only that – but you can increase the performance of your roof by ensuring it is in the best condition.

ACHIEVING A GREAT LOOKING ROOF TAKES JUST 4 SIMPLE STEPS
 

1. REPLACE BEDDING MORTAR

Check the bedding mortar under the ridge tiles. If it is cracked or missing, you’ll need to replace it using Monier’s Premixed bedding mortar*.

2. REPLACE BROKEN TILES

Broken tiles need to be replaced. See our how to replace a tile video below for instructions on working on your roof safely and to how to replace tiles.

3. PRIME & TOPCOAT THE ROOF

Concrete roof’s do weather over time. Concrete tiles get stronger with age and a weathered tile has no lesser performance than a new tile, however a roof respray can add significant value and beauty to your home.

4. APPLY FLEXIBLE POINTING

Once the bedding mortar has set in place, Monier’s flexible pointing should then be applied over the mortar. This pointing is a flexible mechanical fastener which is designed to expand and contract with the natural movement of your roof.

RE-PAINTING YOUR ROOF

1. Safety: ensure a safe working environment.

2. All broken tiles must be replaced and valley irons checked for condition.

3. Ridge removed and re-bed.

4. High pressure water should be used to remove dirt, stains, and old paint, taking time to clean all surfaces including the nose of the tiles.

5. Before priming and painting there is one simple rule: if the roof it too hot to touch, it’s too hot to paint!

6. Using the correct primer is important. Remember, primer will seal a roof tile, but it does not cure leaks. For modern concrete tiles (80’s on) Monier recommends Roofcoat Primer. This penetrating primer binds loose powdery material to tiles with oxidisation. For course older tiles, Monier recommends Roofcoat Highbuild Primer. If you’re unsure which primer to use, get in touch with Monier to speak to a professional.

7. Primer should be applied with an airless spray gun, either a brush or roller for smaller areas is also acceptable.

8. Primer should be allowed to dry for 2-4 hours depending on climatic conditions.

9. Paint should be stirred prior to use and applied in the same way as the primer, allowing 2-4 hours between coats. Monier recommends at least 1 coat of Roofcoat primer or Highbuild and 2 coats of Roofcoat.
