Concrete Tile Roof Recoating

Over time, concrete tile roofs wear. They lose their original coating and tiles can crack causing leaks and interior damage. You’ve probably seen recoated concrete tile roofs and been impressed by how watertight and stylish they look compared to your dull grey roof. We can revitalise your concrete tile roof so it looks great and water-tightness is guaranteed.
