Scotia Replacements


Scotia Installations

Timber doesn't last forever. The wood on your home or office is often prone to rotting, especially in Melbourne, with our extreme Australian elements. The thin timber beading on your home is called a scotia. It's responsible for holding the cement up on the gables on your home's exterior.

Rot is the most common issue property owners face with scotia. Rain, natural decay, and debris can wreak havoc on the structure of your home. Once scotia begins to rot, it puts your safety and the safety of your property at risk. The cement can fall, causing potential personal or physical damage and it leaves your residence partially exposed to the elements. If the cement is down, this also becomes an open entry point for possums, critters, and other creepy-crawlers to enter freely.

Gables Re-cement

Over time, the materials on your home’s roof will naturally start to decay or break down. Our gables re-cement services include removing the old gable mortar that sits on scotia or fascia boards, – this is what holds the gable tiles. Old cement mortar cracks can cause leaks and be a wide opening for possums or other critters you don’t want in your home.

It may be hard to tell if your roof’s mortar is compromised. If you’re unsure whether or not your roof is in need of a gables re-cement, one of our roofers can come on-sight to perform an inspection.

How We Do It:

We carefully remove all old gable mortar on your roof. We then replace it with cement that perfectly matches your roof. We offer various colors to ensure the look of your home remains the same after we’ve finished the job. After we’ve re-cemented, your roof will be stronger and less vulnerable to the elements, or unwanted pests.

While we’re on your roof, we’ll inspect for any other damage like missing or broken roof tiles. If needed, we will also replace roof tiles. Our clients often ask us to check the condition of the flashings, fascia & soffit boards, and guttering while we’re on the roof. We are always happy to check.

We take all safety measures and precautions to ensure the job is done right. Call us today for gables re-cementing in Melbourne. We’re ready to help.


Our goal is to restore roofs to look gorgeous and keep your property protected from harsh weather conditions.
