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.

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