Rekote Roofing was originally started up in 1981 and mainly focused on the re-painting and repairing of concrete, terracotta and metal roofs.
Terry O'Brien, the current owner and local Wollongong resident, took over Rekote just over 10 years ago.
Prior to that, he used to work within the company completing repairs for the original owner.

Terry previously owned another roof tiling company, O'Brien's Roofing that he began himself in 1999 at the age of 21 and has since amalgamated the two roofing companies early this year, now known as Rekote Roofing and Restorations.
The business has been administering the Illawarra and Sutherland Shire regions since the beginning and has recently branched out now operating in parts of Nowra.
They offer a range of roofing services including roof restorations, repairs, re-roofs, new roofs, extensions and guttering replacements, etc.
"We've also been working in conjunction with various local builders around the Illawarra for many years", Terry said.
Rekote prides itself on being a family run and locally owned business.
"Our office is managed by my very own sister, daughter and wife," he said.
Rekote currently has three apprentices and four qualified tradesmen undertaking repairs and roofing, along with three licensed roof tiling contractors that are specially qualified to complete all roof restorations.
"We're also a member of the Master Roof Tilers Association of NSW - I was on the board of directors around five years ago.
"I love the industry and can't imagine doing anything else, I started at the age of 18 and am now 41," Terry said.
"What I like about the region is that it has that close knit community and coastal feel, all of our customers are friendly and through word of mouth and our solid reputation we can carry out a couple jobs in the one street," he added.
Heidi T, a recent happy customer posted the following review on Rekote's Google account.
"Our roof looks amazing; the whole experience with Rekote was easy and stress free.
"Brodey did an amazing job, as he was a perfectionist with his painting...
"The house behind us had their roof sprayed on the same day by some other company and their guy did not take as much pride as ours... and every time I look at it, I think they should have used Rekote."
Rekote Roofing and Restorations is located at 3/5 Lady Penrhyn Drive in Unanderra.
