Replacing Your Metal Roof
Metal roofing is popular with homeowners and commercial builders due to its strength, energy efficiency, colour range and durability.
An experienced, qualified roofing professional can assess the condition of your roof and guide your decision to either replace or restore your roof.
Why would you replace a roof rather than restore the roof?
If the roofing material is so compromised or damaged that it will no longer keep out the weather then you will need a new roof.
If the battens beneath the roof have deteriorated, do not meet modern building standards or have been damaged in some way you will probably need a new roof (along with repairs to the timber).
If you wish to redesign or otherwise modernise the look of your home, you may opt to change to a metal roof.
If you have an existing asbestos roof, you may wish to replace it with a modern metal roof.
If you wish to take advantage of the energy saving properties of a metal roof, you would have your house roof converted to a metal roof.
Metal roofing comes in both light and dark colours. Light colours or a Zincalume finish reflects heat effectively reducing cooling costs in the summer. Darker colours will hold the heat and so help to insulate homes during the winter months.
The decision to restore or replace a roof should not be taken lightly. There are many factors to consider when making this decision. Price, compatibility with the existing structure, compatibility with the design of the house, and colour preferences are just some of the points to discuss with your roofing professional.
Replacing a roof is not a job for the inexperienced, unqualified or basic handyman. It must be installed by a roofing professional with years of experienced to ensure your substantial investment - your home - maintains its street appeal, offers protection from the elements and creates peace of mind for many, many years to follow the roof replacement.
