There are many potential problems with an unrestored roof
An unrestored roof doesn’t just look bad. It can cause countless problems and headaches down the line.
Leaking roofs with rust holes can cause water damage inside your home. Storm damage to a roof can even void your home insurance. Strengthen and restore your roof to avoid this risk.

Roofing Restoration Melbourne
Completing a total roof restoration is probably the single most important benefit you can bring to your home and choosing the right roof restoration service is a very important decision. Rhino Roofing know that your home is the most important place in your life. It is your space. It is where you have complete freedom to make your home exactly as you want. And your roof keeps it all safe.
A leaky roof is only the start of what can become major problems that will require a lot of effort and money to fix if allowed to continue. For over twenty-five years Rhino Roofing have provided specialised, friendly and reasonably priced roof restoration. Melbourne generally has a very pleasant climate, but every now and then a big storm will blow through and inevitably damage old and worn out roofs. Just like you, a roof is a unique structure; each one is different and requires an expert eye to make sure it is in good shape.
Perhaps you live in a fine old heritage house that needs some improvement and a modern roof restoration, cost is obviously an important factor, but the benefits of having what is effectively a new roof are long lasting. Every time you look up at your home you can be assured that all is safe inside and there are no niggling problems that can lose you sleep at night. Your home will look more attractive, it will be worth more and because we here at Rhino Roofing do not use any chemicals you can rest assured you are not doing anything to damage the environment.
There are various different materials that are used in today's roof restoration, from terracotta tiles to concrete tiles and metal roofs. Each of the many types of roofing materials require a particular and unique inspection routine to make sure all is well. Rhino Roofing strongly recommend you inspect your roof at least once a year and always after a big storm. As the householder you might be the first to notice any ongoing deterioration that could indicate a developing problem. And with roofs, the earlier you spot trouble the less disrupting will be the fix and the overall roof restoration price will be more reasonable.
Probably the most important sign to look for is a sagging roof. This could indicate serious problems with your home's load-bearing structure. If you notice your roof sagging, even just a little, it is time to call in the experts. It is likely that water has leaked into your home and may be rotting your support trusses and might even go as far as to damage foundations. Your underlay and battens may have become damaged and every time it rains, the problem is going to get worse. In the worst case the structural repairs required might even mean you and your family will have to move out while restorative work is completed. Not a pleasant thought.
Another important fact to remember is that if a poorly maintained roof suffers from storm damage your insurance company might decide to void your insurance, leaving you with a nasty bill to pay and a leaky and damp home to live in.
Other signs to look for are rust spots where nails and other fixings join with your roof. A careful examination of other roof equipment is also advisable. Maybe there is rust forming around the edge where your whirly bird sits; perhaps there are signs of deterioration around your solar panels. Anywhere there is any kind of join or fixing should be checked.
Also check any mortar and pointing. Metal roofs and roof tiles will outlast any joins or fixings, but pointing in particular does not have the same secure longevity as the solid materials that make up the bulk of your roof.
The problem is, to give your roof and really good check, you need someone to get up there and give everything a close inspection. This is not a very safe thing to do, even for properly trained roofing specialists. Walking on a tiled roof of any kind can not only increase any existing damage, but might even create more damaged as someone moves around.
If you see rust spots or anything out of the ordinary on your roof, call Rhino Roofing and have one of our certified and safety-trained experts come and do the job for you. This is especially true for commercial roof restorations, where a deteriorating roof problem could become so bad that it impacts a company's ability to carry on their business as normal. We can not emphasize enough how important it is to have your roof inspected by qualified, certified and properly trained professionals. As we said before, the earlier you identify problems the quicker, cheaper and easier is the fix.
Rhino Roofing have been providing Melbourne roof restorations for over twenty-five years and we know the area well. We understand the most common problems that occur in the Melbourne area. We have spent our time working on old and new buildings, family homes and commercial business premises and we can recognise the signs of poor workmanship or a failing roof, and because we are a family run firm we are aware of the need to provide the highest quality service for the most economical price.
Rhino Roofing consider themselves an integral part of the Melbourne community. This is our home area and we care about preserving a safe environment for everyone. A roof in need of restoration is dangerous in more ways than you might imagine: loose tiles can slip off and fall on people. A two kilogram object, about the weight of some roof tiles, falling from only three metres will cause an impact force of twenty-two kilograms per centimetre. If this hits an unprotected head it will cause a serious injury. Roofs suffering from rust or holes, or with mould, lichen or other unwanted organic materials, provides a ready home for bacteria. For those of you who collect rainwater, this creates a health hazard for you and your family. A properly sealed and restored roof will create a clean environment and ensure the water in your tanks is safe.
Rhino Roofing offer a range of effective products to give your roof a whole new lease of life and a clean and safe place for you and your family to live. We refuse to use any dangerous chemicals and insist on using Australian made materials. Rhino Roofing Solutions uses their unique Membrane Coating technology. This will penetrate and re-surface both concrete roof tiles and Colorbond roofs. Our membrane coating has been formulated to protect your roof from Australian weather conditions and provides a durable, long life, roof finish. Its attractive gloss retention, colour fastness and lasting good looks will give you a great deal of satisfaction of a job well done. And don't forget the value it will add to your home.
