Keeping your roof clean
Organic growth like lichen and moss is a natural phenomenon that occurs on most permanent outdoor structures including your roof. Left unchecked, organic growth can cause damage to the surface coating of your roof and can create ‘moisture traps’ that cause corrosion.
It is strongly recommended that the roof is kept free of organic growth by periodic cleaning with Roof Wash.
Our Roof Wash is an effective roof cleaning solution to remove the unwanted growth on roof surface.
If rainwater is collected from the roof for drinking, the water connection and storm-water systems should be disconnected from the tank before any chemical cleaning of the roof. The system should remain unconnected for at least three heavy rainfalls to ensure the removal of any residue.
Alternatively the roof can be thoroughly hosed down with clean water before re-connection. The majority of local government bodies have prohibitions against chemicals being washed away in storm-water systems. Check with your local authority about prevailing requirements as to disposal/diversion of waste water before treating your roof.
When we replace roof tiles, we do not just replace the old tiles with new ones. When we remove the old tiles, we will then inspect the roof’s structure to evaluate if the structure is still sound or not. If it isn’t, we will inform and advise you on your options. We look into every corner and joint, to ensure that the roof replacement takes into consideration of the roof’s overall integrity. This is why we are confident of offering a 10-year warranty for all roof replacement projects.

What is roof rejuvenation?
Roof rejuvenation, also known as roof re-coating, is a common type of roof maintenance. Most of our clients do this to prolong the integrity of their roof so that roof replacement is only necessary much further down the road.
How is it going green when i rejuvenate the roof?
We use material that is non-toxic to the environment. By rejuvenating the roof, it will extend the lifespan of roof tiles and in turn, you might not need to replace the roof in the short-term. You can delay replacing the roof by 10 to 20 years, with this type of roof maintenance. Re-coating or rejuvenating the roof ensures that the roof is properly cared for and it also reduces rubbish, which then reduces carbon footprint.
What is the difference between roof rejuvenation and roof replacement?
You need to replace the roof when roof rejuvenation will not cut it anymore due to a bad roof condition. Roof replacement costs more (almost double) compared to roof rejuvenation. So, we would advise that you look into roof rejuvenation or roof re-coating while it can still be maintained that way.
When is the ideal time to rejuvenate the roof?
The ideal time would be 5 to 6 years after the installation of the roof. Generally, you can perform such a roof maintenance if the roof tiles is not older than 15 years. Beyond that, roof rejuvenation is not recommended.
How is roof rejuvenation done?
We repair all leakages, if there is any. We will seal all the joints, even areas/parts that are not leaking, to prevent leakage in the future.
We will wash the roof to get rid of the accumulated dirt.
Then, we cover minor holes with waterproof glue.
We add another layer of waterproof glue for good measure.
Then we add a layer of paint which acts as sunscreen, protecting your roof from the sun.
We add another layer of paint for extra protection.
By re-coating your roof, you will save money in the long run as it can provide roof protection for up to 10 years. If you do not re-coat the roof, corrosion will take place and the structure is weakened.
If you do not re-coat after a few years, roof rejuvenation will not be able to save your roof. This is because the roof tiles gets more worn out and fragile after approximately 20 years. By re-coating every 5 years, your roof’s lifespan is extended for another 5 to 8 years. It all depends on weather conditions throughout the years at your area.
If the paint has worn out after 5 years, then all you need to do is to repaint it. You know who to call for such a job!

Roofing Singapore can be customized into different materials, designs, colours, patterns for exterior theme purposes. Roofing designs are always so important to synchronize with exterior architectural, wall colors, garden themes of the house.
Asphalt roofing is generally divided into two types which are organic and fibreglass. The organic shingles consist of wood fibre, cellulose, waste paper and other base mat material while fibreglass oriented asphalt shingles are on the other hand having special treated glass fibre reinforcement mat. Generally, building owner opts for this type of roofing allows wide range of colours, style (can be as similar as slate, cedar or wood), it is also very cost effective since extensive range of product pricing options can be selected, easy installation, lower risk in leakage issue and having high durability in lifespan. Furthermore, the product raw material itself is recyclable, high resistance against fire, wind, algae, impact, weather and other kind of chemicals.
Metal shingles roofing saves a lot of cost in the perspective of setup, maintenance, overall light-weight structure and eco-friendly to the environment. When metal roof colour deteriorates, it can still be repainted and yet it tolerates diverse kind of weather, it can have very wide options in term of theme, shape and colours to fit intended architectural designs. Metal roof can recycle at least 50% or above of its steel content, go into production for recycling and reuse, replacement of metal sheet can also be done without getting rid of the existing underlayment. It offers heat insulation that keep house from hot temperature, reduce the air-conditioner usage, anti-insect as well as providing long-life value to both industrial, commercial and residential, long-lasting which also meant you can use it for longer lifespan.
Concrete roofing in Singapore are widely applied because of its obvious features, including the durability due to concrete nature, cost effectiveness, can withstand strong wind, UV, extreme weather, requires limited maintenance and easy cleaning. Varieties of shape and colour can be done through custom work. Concrete roof provides security, solid nature as it also able to prevent building from foreign objects intrusion. A proper designed roofing system allows optimization of building performance which comprises of functionalities such as constant air flow to keep air breathe is fresh, clean and keep away pollutants; rainwater drainage system, security, foreign substance defense, air ventilation, heat insulation, acoustic protection with additional foam or sheet to be included.
Wood shingles can be divided into two general kinds, shakes and shingles where the latter is shorter and thinner than the shakes. Wood shingle and wood shake can accomplish Class A fire rating with proper design, their dimension such as cedar wood is stable and able to retain the sizes even exposed to high humidity and will not have much shrinkage. In addition, it can also withstand against harmful UV, insect, fungus, wind, moisture and fire resistant through proper coating. In term of work-ability and appearance, it can be custom made easily to match design requirement. Cedar is one of the strongest timbers globally and has heat insulation feature by the material itself, definitely a good roofing choice for designer who want to bring out the rustic, authentic appearance.
There are two common types fall under this roofing category, which is the clay tile and slate roof. Both of these can have lifespan as long as to 100 years or more provided it does not receive destructive external damage. Both have many advantages such as maintenance is minimal while enjoying varieties of natural styles, colour and able to look similar to other roofing options such as concrete and wood shakes. They are also cost effective materials where replacement possibilities are low, re-coating is not required to tolerate weather, fire, temperature and insects. By opting on them, we are also responsible to the environment since materials are naturally from the mother earth, energy and pollution used to manufacture them are low.
