Quality Roof Restorations offers no-obligation assessments and quotes, free of charge
Roof restorations are similar to purchasing a new car to replace your old banged-up one – it’s a bit of an investment, but at some point it becomes necessary (or even essential, depending on how long you’ve left it!).
You might have noticed it’s time for a comprehensive restoration of your concrete tile roof, but you’re unsure about how much it’s going to cost. Here’s a quick breakdown of how the Quality Roof Restorations team calculates quotes or concrete tile roof restorations in Melbourne, based on over 30 years’ industry experience.
The “nitty gritty” of how our team calculates the cost of your concrete tile roof restoration in Melbourne
While there are many factors that determine how much your individual roof restoration will cost, there’s one factor that all our clients have in common – you live in Melbourne. Victoria typically has a slightly higher average price for roof restorations than the rest of Australia, mainly due to the weather. Victorian roofers have less days of nice weather to do our work, which means we need to plan in advance and work longer/harder on days when the weather is agreeable.
Average prices for concrete roof restorations in Melbourne range from $26 to $44 per sqm, which means you can expect to invest anywhere from $1000 up to $20,000 in your roof restoration.
Whether your quoted price sits closer to the lower or higher end of this scale ultimately depends on factors like:
The size and pitch of your roof
The severity of repairs needed
The level of difficulty to access your roof
How many storeys your property is
The age of your roof (or the length of time since its last restoration)
How much will your concrete tile roof restoration cost in Melbourne?
As you’re probably already aware, concrete roof tiles inevitably crack and fade over time, gradually becoming loose or disappearing altogether. This leaves your roof increasingly vulnerable to leaks, as it can no longer provide watertight protection from the rain. Rainwater can find itself into your home’s structure through damaged valley irons, while moisture seeps through cracked and damaged mortar.
At Quality Roof Restorations, our service involves returning your home’s roof to optimal condition, like the day it was built. This means meticulously repairing all vulnerabilities and signs of deterioration that we find in every aspect of your roof’s structure, pressure washing, applying algae and mould prevention treatment if necessary, priming with special formula, and sealing with a premium quality sealant.
As you can see, our roof restorations are so much more than a simple paint job. This means it will take time, effort and a financial investment on your part to ensure you’re left with a Therma-Guard protected roof that far exceeds the performance of even a brand new roof.
Every project we take on is different, which means there’s no “one size fits all” price for our impeccable roof restorations in Melbourne. This is why we offer free assessments and no-obligation quotes, so that you know exactly where you stand before we get started.
Well clearly, it’s more about how long is Roof Restoration going to last and whether it’s performed by a qualified trades-person. Below is a guideline that you can expect to pay and the estimated length of time that type of restoration is expected to last.

This is just a guideline only of course, there are many high pressure companies, particularly those that advertise heavily on television, that can come in at double or even triple the above pricing. In many cases, those exorbitantly priced companies, provide a very basic service that will not last for very long at all. It’s best to ask as many questions as you can and make yourself as well informed as possible prior to making a decision.
As we started earlier, it is imperative to discuss your situation carefully with an industry professional. It’s easy to fall into the trap of a seemingly inexpensive repair job that will ultimately cost far more in rectification works than would have a quality job.
It is equally important not to overcapitalise on your investment if your personal circumstances might influence the actual requirements.
