Addressing roof damage quickly is essential to prevent minor issues from becoming significant problems. RDW Roofing specialises in handling all roof repairs, from minor leaks to serious structural issues.

Our skilled team employs high-quality materials and tested methods to repair your roof, ensuring it remains a reliable protector of your Hobart home. Regular maintenance and repairs are crucial for early detection of potential issues and prolonging your roof’s lifespan. By opting for RDW Roofing for your repair needs, you’re investing in the long-term durability of your roof and the safety of your residence.


Breathe new life into your ageing roof with RDW Roofing’s thorough restoration services. Beginning with an in-depth inspection, our team will create an affordable plan to revitalise your roof, improving its aesthetics and lifespan. Our restorations tackle natural challenges like moisture, mould, and wear and tear, prolonging your roof’s life and preserving your home’s structural integrity.

Opting for restoration is a proactive measure against the elements, securing your roof’s condition for the future.

Roof Replacement

When restoration is no longer an option, our licensed team stands ready to deliver a complete roof replacement that conforms to industry standards. We employ durable and visually appealing roof materials from the Monier tile range, known for their reliability and high-quality standards.

Our thorough process ensures a new roof that enhances your home’s appearance and withstands Hobart’s weather conditions. A successful roof replacement can increase your property’s value and ensure it meets any necessary building inspections, protecting you during stormy seasons.

Roof Painting

Revitalise your home’s appearance with RDW Roofing’s professional roof painting services. As Dulux Accredited Roof Paint Applicators, we guarantee a flawless finish that enhances your roof’s aesthetic appeal. Our comprehensive process ensures a long-lasting paint job, offering diverse, vibrant and durable colours from the Dulux Acratex range.

Being accredited paint applicators and licensed roofers, you can trust that we are fully equipped to manage your project meticulously from start to finish.

Roof Cleaning

Preserve your roof’s aesthetic appeal and functionality with RDW Roofing’s extensive cleaning services. Our expert team in Hobart uses specialised power washing equipment for a gentle yet effective clean, removing dirt, moss, and algae from its surface. After the cleaning process, we apply two layers of sterilising agent to maximise the value and longevity of the cleaning.

Regular roof cleaning maintains your roof’s aesthetic appeal and prevents potential damage, extending its lifespan and efficiency. A clean roof contributes to the overall structural health of your home, ensuring it remains a safe and comfortable space for you and your family.

Ridge Capping

Secure and enhance the appearance of your roof in Hobart with our specialised ridge capping services. RDW’s roofing experts provide both ridge cap repair and replacement (if necessary) to ensure your roof’s ridges are properly sealed and ready to protect your home from the elements. Our precision and attention to detail ensure a seamless and aesthetic solution.

Rebedding & Repointing

Improve the durability of your roof and safeguard your Hobart home against the elements with our specialised rebedding and repointing services. We replace old cement with new, sturdy bedding and repoint your ridge caps with flexible mortar for increased protection against water penetration. These maintenance steps are crucial for maintaining your roof’s structural integrity.

Regular rebedding and repointing are key to keeping a healthy roof. They prevent mould growth by stopping water damage from affecting your home. Over time, the mortar between your roof tiles can weaken, leading to potential leaks and damage. By addressing these issues, you can avoid expensive repairs and ensure your home’s safety and structural stability.


Boost your home’s comfort and energy efficiency with RDW Roofing’s roof and ceiling insulation services. Proper insulation is vital, as the roof accounts for over 35% of winter heat losses and summer heat gains in a home. By maintaining a consistent indoor temperature throughout the year, insulation leads to lower energy bills and improved overall comfort.

Our skilled Hobart roofing team ensures the correct installation of industry-standard batts in your ceiling for optimal effectiveness. High-quality insulation can save you thousands of dollars in the long run and is one of the best investments for enhancing home efficiency. In addition, effective insulation reduces heat transfer through the roof and minimises your home’s carbon footprint by reducing your yearly energy usage.

With a proven track record of consistently delivering outstanding results and numerous 5-star reviews, RDW Roofing in Hobart is committed to providing you with the best possible solution for your needs. We prioritise customer satisfaction, quality workmanship, and cost-effective solutions to provide you with value-for-money results that last.

Make An Informed Decision for Your Roof
UV Protection

With high-quality tiles, a fresh new roof offers excellent reflective properties to prevent UV light from penetrating your home, keeping you comfortable and temperate.

Physical Protection

Your tiles are a physical barrier for falling trees, hail, or pests such as rats, possums, and birds from nesting in your attic. An uncompromised roof also protects your insulation.

Pollutant Barrier

Your roof is an essential barrier to the external environment, working in tangent with your ventilation to prevent pollutants and allergens from entering your living space.


With many residential building inspections failing on the roof, a new roof adds significant value to your home.

Foot Traffic

An immediate consideration is that foot traffic, including gutter cleaning, solar installations, etc., can cause roof tile cracks. A qualified roofer can immediately replace cracked tiles before any further damage starts.


Within as soon as ten years, the pointing of your roof can start showing signs of cracking (further worsened by foot traffic). A quick pointing touch-up is a simple way to prevent further damage.

Accumulated Grime

Within ten years, the first signs of moss and lichen will start to show (particularly in moist environments). A periodic powerwash is the best way to keep your roof looking fresh.

Dislodged End Cap

Usually one of the first things to go, your ridge cap end tile can start to feel the weight of gravity and begin to slide. This is an easy fix at this stage.

Cracked Pointing

More extensively cracked and peeling ridge pointing will start to show, exposing the mortar under your hip tiles (ridge caps). Should you address the issue soon enough, a qualified roofer could save the bedding with a cost-effective pointing touch-up.

Dislodged Flashings

Your roof’s flashings can become dislodged over time and may need replacement. A simple installation of a lead-free, adhesive flashing is a cost-effective way to prevent further damage.


At a minimum, we recommend a roofing inspection of your roof to have any routine maintenance complete and ensure your roof is in functional condition.

Accumulated Grime

Moss and lichen will continue to grow, making your roof look lacklustre and contributing to cracking of your pointing. A simple roof clean by an expert is a great way to nip this issue in the bud.

Dislodged Shell Cap

If your end ridge tile is not addressed soon, it can continue to slide and allow the tiles it sits on to begin to slide into your gutter.

Loose Ridge Caps

Ridge caps are likely loose at this point. When this occurs, complete cleaning and replacing bedding cement is required to ensure the ridges are refastened and stay in place.

Degraded Pointing

If left unattended, the pointing of your ridge caps (at a bare minimum) needs replacing to keep your ridge caps secure.

Faded Colour

With age, all roofs will lose their colour/glaze. Restoring this is for cosmetic purposes, but when all maintenance is completed, followed by re-sealing and painting, it will add a new lease of life to an old, bland roof.

Dislodged End Cap

By this stage, your end cap could have continued to slide off, leaving no weight on its under tiles. This not only looks terrible but also allows water ingress.

Replacement Required

At this point, your roof may be beyond repair. Moss could have penetrated under your tiles, unattended mechanical stress could leave your tiles riddled with cracks, and your ridge caps likely need complete repair. Unfortunately, complete reroofing may be the only solution.

Use our interactive tool to explore the long-term benefits of quality roofing:

Leak Protection

The roof tiles are designed to allow rain to run freely off your roof and into your gutter to prevent pooling on your roof’s surface.

Controlled Runoff

Your roof’s valleys act as a securely sealed, free-flowing channel to allow stormwater to run seamlessly into your gutters.

Leak Protection

The ridges of your roof are fastened with bedding cement and sealed with pointing mortar to prevent water ingress.

Leak Protection

Flashings are small pieces of metal placed around your roof’s joints to act as a tight and secure waterproofing barrier.

Weather Damage

Strong winds caused by storms can dislodge valley tiles. Having an expert roofer clip these back into place is an easy and cost-effective way to avoid further damage.

Accumulated Debris

Within ten years, debris and organic matter will start to fill in your gutter, increasing the chances of rust and water overflow. A simple, quick emptying of your gutter is the best way to avoid any issues.

Water Ingress

Any cracked and unattended pointing will start to make your roof vulnerable to water ingress, with a high chance of leaks beginning to move through your ceiling and into your attic.

Lost Flashings

Flashings aged 20 years are highly sensitive to wind gusts, proving a prime access point for water infiltration.

Dislodged Tiles

At the 20-year mark, multiple roof tiles are likely to become dislodged. Having an expert lock them in place is a simple way to prevent leaks.

Soaked Insulation

At this point, unattended leaks are already soaking your ceiling insulation, making it an excellent breeding ground for mould and rendering the insulation effectively useless.

Mouldy Insulation

If exposed to moisture, your ceiling insulation has heavily degraded and is likely full of mould. Degraded insulation is an excellent breeding ground for mould and could be promptly replaced to keep your indoor space healthy and comfortable.

Water Ingress

Unattended ridge caps with deteriorated pointing and bedding are a leading reason for water ingress and leaks coming through your ceiling.

Interior Damage

Any unattended leaks will show on your ceiling and walls as yellow stains and mould. An expert professionally treating your home for mould and water stains is costly…

Electrical Hazard

Unattended leaks are a significant electrical hazard and could be dripping onto electricals. If exposed to water, this poses a considerable fire risk and likely needs complete replacement.

Attic Damage

An unattended roof will likely allow multiple entry points for water ingress into your ceiling. Wood rot of your trusses could be a significant issue at this point, and the plaster of your ceiling may need complete replacement.
