Roof restoration is one of the best things that you can do to your home this year. Especially if you haven’t done any roof cleaning or repairs to it ever since you moved in. It will certainly give your home a breath of fresh air and make your roof last for more years to come.

If you’re having second thoughts about it because of your tight schedule, don’t worry. We’ll breakdown to you our roof restoration process and the outside factors involved so you would have an idea of how long will the process take.

How long will my roof restoration take?

Typically, a basic roof restoration project can take between 3 to 5 days to complete. However, more complex jobs that involve significant repairs, re-roofing, or installation of new roofing materials can take longer, up to several weeks.

The whole roof restoration process will also depend on several factors:

The size of the roof – larger roofs will generally take longer to restore than smaller ones.

The condition of the roof – if your roof has significant damage or requires extensive repairs, the restoration process will take longer than if your roof only requires minor repairs.

The weather – roof restoration projects are weather-dependent. If it’s raining, snowing, or too windy, the restoration work may need to be postponed.

Availability of materials – if certain materials are not readily available, it may delay the restoration process until they become available.

Contractor availability – if the roofing contractor has a busy schedule, it may take longer to start or complete the project.

Unforeseen issues – sometimes, unforeseen issues can arise during the restoration process, such as hidden damage or structural issues. These issues may require additional time and resources to address.

Our 5-Stage Roof Restoration Mastery

With over two decades of working on roofs all over Sydney, we’ve already mastered our roof restoration process. Here’s what you can expect in one of our most-sought after services:

Roof Inspection

The first step is to inspect the roof thoroughly to identify any damage or issues that need to be addressed. The inspection will help determine the scope of the restoration work required.


30 minutes – 1 hour, depending on the size of the roof

Roof Cleaning

Before any repairs or restoration work can begin, the roof needs to be cleaned to remove any dirt, debris, or moss. This can be done through pressure washing, scraping, or brushing.


From a few hours to a full day

Roof Repairs

Once the roof is clean, the next step is to repair any damage that has been identified. This can include fixing leaks, replacing broken or missing tiles or shingles, repairing flashing, or addressing any structural issues.


From a few hours to a full day, sometimes up to several days depending on how bad the damages are

Roof Restoration proper

After the repairs are complete, the roof is ready for restoration. This can involve applying coatings, sealants, or paints to protect and improve the appearance of the roof. This stage may also involve installing insulation, ventilation, or guttering.


2 to 3 days

Final Inspection

Once the restoration work is complete, the roof will be inspected again to ensure that all repairs have been completed, and the roof is in good condition.


30 minutes – 1 hour

Why is roof restoration important?

There are several reasons why roof restoration is a must-do for every homeowner. Especially for those who live in older houses that haven’t been professionally cleaned or even inspected by a roofing contractor.

If you’re still having second thoughts about that roof restoration project, here’s why start it asap.


Your roof protects your home and its contents from the elements. Over time, wear and tear can cause damage to the roof, compromising its ability to protect your home. Restoration can help repair the damage and restore the roof’s protective qualities.


Regular roof maintenance and restoration can extend the life of your roof. By addressing issues early on, you can avoid costly repairs or even a full roof replacement in the future.

Energy efficiency

A well-maintained roof can help regulate the temperature inside your home. A roof restoration can include insulation and ventilation upgrades that can improve energy efficiency and reduce heating and cooling costs.


A restored roof can improve the appearance of your home and increase its curb appeal. This can be especially important if you are planning to sell your home in the future.
