Re-Roofing

Ajax Gregson Tiles are also re-roofing specialists. Our quotations include removing the existing tiles from your roof, and relaying your new tile selection. When we commence your re-roofing project we complete one section of your roof at a time. This ensures that your home is never fully exposed to the elements, and eliminates the need for roofing tarps.

Images, together with documentation of the process involved is shown on the images below.

 

10-Step Re-Roofing process

1. Install safety rail

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

2. Remove old tiles

All the old roof tiles and ridge are removed.

3. Inspect roof

The roof timbers are inspected to make sure the battens are sound.

4. Install sarking*

Sarking provides insulation and reflects up to 95% of radiant heat entering the roof.

5. Install new battens**

New battens are installed ready for the new roof tiles to be laid.

6. Load up new tiles

Old tiles are removed and the new roof tiles are sent up to the roof using a conveyer system.

7. Start laying new tiles

Tiles are laid sequentially up the roof from the gutter line and fixing clips, or nails, are used to secure the roof tiles to the roof.

8. Ridge tiles installed

Ridge tiles are installed and bedded in place using mortar.

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.

10. Finish

Guard-rail is removed and the site is tidied and any left over roof tiles removed.
