Roof Ventilation Melbourne

Having Roof Vents / Whirlybirds installed in your Melbourne roofing is necessary in order for your roof to function properly. The two main functions of the Roof Vent is:

To clear out the hot in your roof space caused by direct sunlight.

FACT- Your roof space can actually get up 60 degrees in temperature, causing insulation to become less effective and air conditioners to work much harder.

To draw the moisture out of your ceiling area caused by the running of bathroom and stove exhaust fans.

FACT- your roof space can actually accumulate over ten litres of water through condensation, creating stains on interior walls and ceilings.

Other important benefits of having roof vents or Whirlybirds installed on your roofs are that they operate absolutely free, saving you on electricity bills. By lowering the power consumed by airconditioners, you are also limiting green house emisions. There are many roof vent sizes to choose from. The most common size in Melbourne is the 300mm standard roof vent. For a commercial roof such as a factory or warehouse, the most common size of vent would be 500mm. They can come in either an aluminium or stainless steel build.

Using wind power for propulsion, your roof vents operate silently 365 days a year!

Pressure Clean

First your roof is cleaned using at least 3000 psi of pressure to remove dirt, grime and moss build up in preparation for painting.

Bed and Pointed

Your ridges, valleys and gables are then Re-Bedded where any unstable cement is present and fully Re-Pointed using an acrylic flexible pointing compound (as per Australian standards on new roofs). It is also recommended that we change any rusted valley irons at this point.

Tiles changed and valley renewed

Next up we replace all your broken tiles. Your roof is blown down and your gutters are cleaned. We then install your complimentary roof ventilator.

Sealing and Painting

We then prime your roof with a high quality primer so that the paint will adhere to the tiles with the strongest possible bond.

We then spray 2 to 4 coats of Nutech arcrylic roof paint depending on the condition of the tiles and of our clients choice, whilst allowing about an hour to dry in between applications.

We then spend as much time as it takes to make sure you and your neighbours properties are left clean and tidy.

Professional Melbourne Roof Repairs Guardian Roofing Can Offer

When they are in need for professional roof repairs Melbourne residents will find numerous respectable companies in their area. Those roofing companies should offer a free on-site inspection. They will also provide a general condition report, where they will outline what has to be done and how much this will cost. For a total roof restoration Melbourne customers should expect to pay roughly $24 — $34 per meter2.

It is highly important to keep roofs in very good condition, to clean and check them regularly and prevent possible roof tile leaks, as well as structural damages. Porous or damaged tiles could cause more serious problems. Strong wind and other harsh weather conditions are mostly responsible for occasional broken or loose tiles, but you dont have to worry about those weather conditions any more.

Professionals will make sure they make all the necessary repairs. A great looking roof in tip top condition will greatly affect the value of your beautiful home. It will surely improve your house appearance. Regular maintenance will not only save you a great deal of money, but it will also make your home safer to live in. Preventing all potential problems is always the best way of saving both your time and your valuable money.

Sometimes with roof repairs Melbourne customers cannot have all the issues solved, it is necessary to replace or have a roof restoration completed to the entire roofing structure. The price of a total roof restoration Melbourne is usually about one third of a price you would pay for a new roof. For this amount you will get a full pressure cleaning service, all the necessary repair works done and a complete re-surfacing / roof re-spray.

Broken, loose or cracked tiles should be replaced or fixed. Porous tiles can absorb too much water and cause different problems. Moss and lichen should be properly removed, and gutters perfectly clean. Problems can also occur if the mortar is crumbled or broken in different places. All those problems might be the result of improperly structured roofs and lack of maintenance.

Regular maintenance could significantly extend the life of every single roof, both cement and terracotta. High pressure cleaning will eliminate the excessive dirt and mould build up, including the dirt collected in your gutters. Rusted valley irons should be replaced, and lead flushing repaired, if necessary. Ridges are the most important aspects, and should be kept in great condition. These should be periodically checked and re-pointed with a high grade flexible pointing compound.

All elements should be appropriately sealed. A sealer protects tiles from becoming porous. This is the way for preventing the moisture absorption and possible leaks. Final coatings will additionally protect all exposed surfaces. Coatings are available in various colours, and they look glossy and especially appealing. Painting your roof will greatly lift the appearance of your property.

Ventilation is another important issue. The Melbourne area has very warm summers and colder winters, and roof ventilation can significantly improve the insulation of the object. This way you can have an energy efficient home, with reduced costs both for cooling during summer months and heating during winter. It will also remove the damp from your living space.
