DIY & HOME OWNER TIPS

A roof is a roof right? Well there are actually countless options when it comes to roofing materials, shapes, colours, finishes, etc. and that's just here in Australia. Roofs can vary depending on climate, culture, and country, and there are many differences between roofs built here and American roofs.

In this post, we look at the differences between Australian roofing and American roofing.

Springtime is here! The weather is already getting warm and balmy - a sure reprieve from the cold winds and temperatures invading our Queensland homes (as you know, they're not built for the cold!).

With spring upon us, out come our spring cleaning checklists! As the main focus of these cleaning routines is usually inside the house, it’s so easy to forget about the critical areas on the outside. A great example of this is your roof - it protects you from the elements so why not show it the attention it deserves this spring?

Summer is almost here, so it's the perfect time to think about solar power for your home. In this post, we talk about solar roofs and whether your roof is able to go solar. 

More and more buildings in Australia are now being constructed with plant-covered roofs, also known as 'living roofs'. They’re not just an architectural trend, they serve a far greater purpose. These green roofs have existed for thousands of years in Scandinavian countries, where they used layers of turf, or "sod", for insulation and a wood alternative.

Summer in Brisbane means torrential downpours and thunderstorms. This is due to our subtropical climate, which means we experience hot weather for the greater part of the year.

But when does winter come, we experience drier and much milder temperatures. In this post, we talk about the unique roof and building services that Brisbane requires.

Your roof takes up almost 40% of the houses’ exterior perspective; making it a large portion of the homes external appearance and also one of the key expenses in remodelling a house. Before you embark on a roof remodel, here are some easy and safe tips. 

We touched on the craze of renovation shows in Australia earlier this year, and we still can't get over them. In this post we elaborate on some of the top renovation TV shows to see why they're so popular. 

Flat roofing is not your typical roofing system. It requires a bit more maintenance than the traditional slope or pitched-roof, however it does have  a lot of misconceptions. Most of these come from the consequences of poor installation and the incorrect design of the roof, rather than flat roofs themselves. In this post, we concentrate on the advantages of a flat roof.

Deciding which roofing option best suits your house is probably one of the most important considerations when it comes to planning and building a property. The roof is not only your home’s barrier from the elements, but it lends to people’s first impressions of your property.

Your gutters shouldn't just match your roof in terms of colour palette, they should also match your roof's structure and design. In this post, we ask readers: "Do your gutters match your roof beyond colour matching?"
