What we do

​​Clean, Maintain & Restore. 

We want your roof to look great & last another 10 years!

How? By offering a comprehensive maintenance & restoration service to make your tired roof feel like new again.

Re-roofing is an expensive and, quite often, an unnecessary task. Your roof must always be coated to protect it from the elements, over time this can get worn away. A combination of water, sunlight, debris, pooling water and moss can then begin to rust, crack, and erode your roof. Painting isn’t just for aesthetic purposes, it is the only layer of protection your roofing material has against damage and deterioration.

Could I paint or repair the roof myself?

​As kiwis, we love our DIY jobs. However, your mate Dave with a silicon gun is never going to give you a quality repair, and could end up damaging your roof in the process. Our experienced professionals have been required to fix bad repairs by unqualified tradesman which have added unnecessary costs onto what was originally a simple and cheap job. We have all the equipment, tools, warranties and expertise to complete the job safely and effectively. By walking on the roof yourself, you run the risk of further damage to the existing roof and could cause a serious injury if you were to fall. You must never step on rusted sheets/tiles or clear surfaces such as skylights or clear sheeting. If cost is an issue for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We can arrange a price that suits you with our no obligation evaluation.

Does my roof need restoring or replacing?

​As experts in roof restorations, we will always explore the option of preserving your original roof materials first. Re-roofing is an expensive route to go down on, and we have found most of the roofs we inspect will just need to be restored and have regular maintenance. This will be evaluated during our initial roof visit, as it will be difficult for you to see exactly how damaged the roof may be from on the ground. We specialise in repair and restoration services which will significantly extend the lifespan of your existing roof, and protect it from future wear and tear. However we pride ourselves on our honesty and customer focus. Because of this we will never pressure you to take on a re-roof unless it is absolutely necessary. If we find your roof to be beyond repair, we can point you in the right direction of a reputable provider.

​I'd like my roof painting, but does it need repairs first?

​Necessary repairs may need to be completed before the painting process to ensure it is weathertight and add years to the roof’s life. Visibly broken tiles or rusted sheets are an obvious indicator that more extensive restoration will be required. Broken or rusted flashings are also a common issue with old roofs and may cause leaks. Warped and discoloured plasterboard, stained ceiling lining and cracked paint are also signs that a leak has occurred. Early action will prevent worse problems appearing further down the line.

There is a lot of rust on my roof, is this a problem?

​If the rust is extensive and has caused structural damage to the sheets then yes, we may need to replace these areas. However, if what you can see is just surface rust we can prepare and treat the area. From our initial inspection, we will be able give you options about how to prevent this rust from returning using our specialised methods. If you intend to get it painted, a zinc-based primer then prevents the rust from developing or spreading before we apply the acrylic topcoat in a colour of your choice.

Is there anything you can't repair?

​While we will make repairs where necessary, we do not undertake full re-roofs. Meaning you will not be pushed into an expensive full scale overhaul where not required.

​How long does roof painting take?

​In most cases, the work will be completed within 4 days. This includes a final inspection of your roof.

​How much will it cost to paint my roof?

​The price will depend on the size & condition of your roof. Most roofs will cost between $3200 - $4800.

What they say.

"Phil and his team have done a brilliant job and were super friendly, professional and communicative throughout. I was concerned this would be a big, expensive job but he was very reassuring and honest. I would highly recommend Rimu Roofing and will certainly be asking them to keep an eye on our roof going forwards."

​​"These guys were prompt, efficient, professional and friendly. I had a leak I wanted checked out and repaired, plus a check of the overall condition of my roof. They took care to explain what was happening, where, how and when. They even took photos after, to show what had been done and urged me to follow up if there were any problems. I felt well taken care of! I strongly recommend them in future.”
