- After the cleaning process the true condition of the tile/colorbond tin is revealed. Due to age, deterioration and sun damage some roof surfaces are compromised/weathered resulting in a variation in texture which can determine the look of the finished painted roof. For example; if
the existing tiles are extremely pouris/grainy this can affect the way the finish paint job can look compared to a newer tile with a smoother finish to it. Some roofs display irregularity in the finished painted look by way of a duller flat or uneven/patchy satin finish. The final finish can only be determined by the type of tile you have on the roof and we cannot be accountable for the type of tile surface you have which can affect the finish look. Different light can affect the finished look ie sun.
- Paint Colour/Flexi Colour: The paint/flexi-point colour will not be exactly as they appear online or the colour chart due to monitor resolution/colour chart paper etc.
- Prior painted roofs. After the cleaning process the true condition of the tile/tin is revealed. Some paint might be removed during the cleaning process and some paint may remain on the roof. This determines the look of the finished painted roof. Some roofs display irregularity in the

To notify other parties that maybe affected by the work carried out on your property. For example:
- tenants etc
To remove cars, motorbikes, etc from the access point to your property to allow access for the tradesmen to carry out work to your property. This will also safe guard your property from damaged from pressure cleaning and spray machines. Roof Makeover Specialist is not responsible for damages to property if property has not been removed or covered. If our staffs are unable to carry out work due to being unable access the work site due to lock out or cars blocking driveway etc, you may occur a labor charge due to delay.

- Payment for work
The price quoted and agreed on will be paid in full on completion of work without deductions unless agreed upon in writing. You cannot hold payment or payment for complaints or issues. It is important to notify us within 7 days via phone call or email and we will formulate remedies to solve issues.
- During the washing stage, there will be a lot of dirt that comes down from the roof, so please ensure cars/clothes/anything valuable is either covered or moved away from the roof to avoid getting dirty. The owner/landlord/agent is also responsible to letting the neighbours close to your house know of this.
- If you have a water tank – this will need to be closed off during the washing stage to avoid getting dirt in it.
- If you have existing leaks, please ensure this is shown to the roofers on site before we start. Occasionally some water can come inside through * air vents/skylights areas/flutes etc during the washing stage – Roof Makeover Specialist will take all pre-caution to ensure water doesn’t get in however we cannot take any responsibility for any water that gets inside/causes any stains – as it’s outside our control and a risk the home owner has to take to perform this job.
- If gutters are already full of dirt, this could cause blockages – we will wash as much as we can away from downpipe, however we don’t use vacuums so cannot expect this to be thoroughly cleaned. *unless this is part of the quote to use vacuums*
- If gutters/fascia/anything close to the roof is freshly painted – the dirt from the washing stage could stain this a little bit. We will wash this off as much as we can – but it would be unrealistic to make it look brand new.
- Solar panels/pool panel sheets on roof – we wash/paint around this. If the panels are too close to the edge of the roof and there is no safe access to walk at the bottom row to wash/paint the bottom row – we will not be able to do this especially in the double storey section.
- If the quote includes repointing, – if they already have weep-holes on the top ridge, we will apply weep holes as well. If they don’t, we will not be able to put a weep holes unless we are re-bedding the whole section. We will repoint the collars of the ridge for added strength without the weep holes.
- Our aim is to ensure all the pointing work is as smooth as possible and to make it look nice however this is based on the existing bedding condion of your roof – if they are sticking out a bit then this will also effect the way the pointing will look.
