Superior Residential Roof Restoration, In and Around New Orleans

Give Your Roof the TLC It Needs Before You Overspend Replacing It!

Is Roof Restoration the Same as Roof Replacement?

This is a question we get asked all the time at Lone Wolf Renovations: Roof Restoration vs. Roof Replacement

Many people believe that restoration involves removing your old roof completely to bring it back to its original quality.

But that’s not the case at all!

Roof restoration simply means improving the overall health of your roof without ripping it up! Even if your roof is old and seemingly on its last ‘tiles,’ damage can be addressed without drastic action. At Lone Wolf Renovations, we don’t believe in making more work for you or us.

We’re always open and honest about the solutions we offer our clients. While many contractors will try to nudge you toward replacing your roof (because it puts more money in their pocket…).

We always consider the solution that’s right for you.

On this page, you can learn more information about our New Orleans roof restoration services for residential homes and see if restoration is the right solution for you.

The Lone Wolf Roof Restoration Process

1. Roof Inspection

Our specialist team carefully assesses your rooftop for damage in the form of cracked tiles, leaks, and areas of structural weakness.

We’re always thorough, so we’ll find even the smallest of holes and cracks with ease!

2. Roof Cleaning

This isn’t just part of the service – it’s essential to keeping your roof in top condition!

Using a high-pressure hose, we remove dirt and debris from your roof and ensure your gutters are cleared of branches and leaves.

This step is essential before our protective coating is applied.

3. Roof Repairs

Here, our team follows up on their initial roof inspections to replace any damaged sections of your roof with the highest quality materials, always to the highest standards.

By the time we’re done with repairs, your roof will almost look new again – but we’re not finished yet!

4. Chemical Treatment

After repairs are complete, we coat your roof with a protective sealant to increase the durability of your tiles and prolong your roof’s lifespan.

This coating waterproofs your tiles and provides an extra layer of insulation to your home.

5. Final Assessment

Our expert team will complete one final assessment to ensure that any problem areas have been dealt with and your roof restoration is complete according to our high standards.

Once we sign off your roof, it’s guaranteed to last for years to come!

The Benefits of Roof Restoration

Although we could go on for hours listing the countless benefits of a roof restoration, here are a few of our top reasons for restoring instead of replacing:

Prevent Future Damage & Leaks

As a resident of New Orleans, we’re sure you’re already very familiar with the extreme weather we experience throughout the year.

All that rain, wind, hail, and those falling branches add up!

Too many impacts on your property will almost certainly lead to leaks – and while these can range from minor to major, it’s always best to let the professionals deal with them.

Otherwise, you face costly bills and serious water damage.

During a roof restoration, your roof is covered in our tried and tested protective sealant, which will prevent damage and leaks for many years to come.

Extend Your Roof’s Life

A roof restoration isn’t just a short-term solution. It’s a solution that can add 10-15 years to your roof’s lifespan!

Instead of having that sinking feeling that your roof won’t survive the next storm…

You’ll have total peace of mind that you, your family, and your possessions will be warm and dry for many more storms in the future!

Save Money & Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

If your bills seem higher than usual, but you can’t figure out why – it might not have anything to do with your pipes or plumbing…

…and everything to do with your roof!

If your roof isn’t sealed properly, whether that’s through faulty flashing, missing tiles, or something else entirely:

All of your warm air will be escaping!

To keep warm, you’re probably cranking up the heating or air conditioning to compensate for the loss.

Our roof restoration service helps keep your house warmer for longer, meaning you’ll save money on energy bills as well as your insurance – and you’re helping the environment too!

Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal

The roof is one of the first things potential buyers and investors notice about your home.

In other words, keeping it in good condition is crucial to boosting your home’s value on the market.

It’s not all about appearances – it’s about safety too.

A roof that looks run-down and in need of repair is almost guaranteed to put buyers off.

On the other hand, a restored roof will increase the likelihood that your home sells fast – and you may even be able to list it for a higher price than you originally thought!

Is A Roof Restoration Worth It?


Here are our 3 BIG reasons why you should consider roof restoration (especially if you’re also considering roof repair and/or roof replacement!)

  • Restoration is much more affordable than replacing an entire roof.
  • Restoration allows you to extend the lifespan of your roof for up to 15 years without the HUGE price tag.
  • Restoration is more environmentally friendly than a replacement, as it reuses parts of your roof.

How To Choose Between Roof Repair & Roof Restoration?

Another common question we get asked is: “Why can’t I just repair my roof instead of restoring it?

Roof repairs are only suitable for small, specific areas of your roof, such as minor leaks and damaged tiles.

If you only have one problem, a repair might be the right solution for you.

However, if you want to address multiple issues AND protect your roof at the same time, a roof restoration is a far more cost-effective solution.

It’s not just about patching a leak or replacing tiles. It’s about strengthening all areas of your roof, so it can withstand even the most extreme weather conditions in New Orleans.

When Should You Consider a Roof Restoration?

No roofs last forever, and that’s why it’s important to conduct regular checks of your roof or get professionals to inspect it on your behalf at least twice a year – especially after storms.

But what is it that you’re looking for?

Here are the telltale signs you should consider a roof restoration:

water stain roof damages

  • Signs on the inside of your home:

Holes in the roof can sometimes be easy to spot – you may see visible leaks or light coming through the ceiling.

However, not all holes are visible, but you may see the water damage caused by them, such as dark spots or trails.

  • Signs on the outside of your home:

If you’re brave enough to climb up on your roof, keep an eye out for worn-out or loose shingles and other materials around the chimney, pipes, and vents.

Be sure to check for cracks in your flashing too.

Residential roofing tiles are incredibly durable, and it’s very rare that an entire roof needs replacing instead of just a few shingles.

You may also notice signs of mold, rot, and moisture, which are most prominent around gutters and downpipes.

Don’t Get Ripped Off by Ripping Your Roof Off!

Although roof damage on New Orleans homes is something we see every day at Lone Wolf Renovations, it’s much less often that this damage requires a full roof replacement.

Make sure you know what your roof really needs!
