So, you bought a home with a tin roof when you decided to live in Blackburn years ago. Are you looking for a tin roof restoration expert now? Our company, Melbourne Roof Specialist, is here to provide you with our affordable and quality roofing services.

Tin sheets are made of rolled steel with tin coating. They were very popular as roofing material years ago because they are less expensive, lightweight and easy to install. But this material is rarely available now. When people say tin roofing today, they are likely just referring to steel or metal roofing.

Old tin roofs may be flat or corrugated. They are usually bare metal and just painted with a desired color. They don’t require much maintenance. But the problem arises when the tin sheets, just as with any metal roofing material, starts to rust. If left untreated, the tin sheets will form holes, which would permit water leaks when it rains.

There are steps to take to treat rust formation so that the roof can last for years. Homeowners can probably do it themselves if the affected part is small. But if the rust formation is too much, it is best to replace tin roof sheets. In that case, the best person to do the job is a professional roofer.

Tin Roof Repairs

Dealing with rusts isn’t just as simple as painting over it. It is necessary to do several steps including cleaning the tin sheets, scrubbing the rusted area with wire brush, applying a rust-retardant primer and then several coats of the best paint for metal sheets.

If small holes need to be patched up, there are metal repair kits that can be bought and used to fix the problem. Just follow the instructions that come with the repair kit.

Tin Roof Replacement

If the tin sheet has been totally covered with rust, it’s time to hire a roofing contractor to remove and replace the tin roof. But what is a good replacement since old tin roof sheets are no longer available? Well there are alternative metal roofing like Colorbond roofing and Zincalume roofing.

If you want to know which type of metal roofing is compatible with your old tin roofing, call Melbourne Roof Specialist to ask your questions and get the free information you need.

Roof specialists replaced our sagging old tiled roof with a new colourbond roof. They worked really well with our carpenter and communicated well before and during the project. We are really happy with the end result. Their pricing was competive and we definately recommend them.

Great team, and seamless experience. The team kept me up to date and the work done was thorough, and to a high quality. Highly recommended. Restored our late 70’s tiled roof to look like new. Neighbors have all commented how great it now looks.

Peter Pianta

I had a number of roofing tradespeople who had repaired and replaced sections of my roof in the past and I had not been overly happy with the quality of work completed. After making the tough decision to replace the entire roof, I turned to the roof specialist for assistance. Whilst not the cheapest, they were competitively priced and in terms of the outcome achieved, great value for money. The team was fast, efficient, tidy and the finish was excellent. One could not ask for much more.
