Roof Replacements - Lessons Learned

After decades working on Brisbane roofs, we’re confident to say we know roofing inside out…

Replacing your roof will transform the look of your home, improve its structure and increase its market value. However, replacing your roof is no small feat. 

There are many things to consider when replacing a roof. Over the years, we’ve learned some lessons in roof replacement. Here are our top tips on how to have the perfect roof replacement experience:

1. Choose A Reliable Company

There are many companies in Brisbane offering roofing services, but they’re not all the same when it comes to quality.

It’s easy for roofing experts to spot botched repairs, but they may not become apparent to you until it starts leaking. Before you hire a roofing company, take the time to do your research to find the best deal for your needs.  

2. Set A Budget

At the start of the project, it’s important to set out your budget and expected costs. Make sure that you can stick to this budget, because you can’t leave a roof restoration project only half-finished. 

3. Decide On The Right Material

It’s important to choose the right material for your new roof, as this will have a big impact on it’s look and feel and cost. Popular roof types in Australia include metal, tiles, Colorbond steel and decramastic (pressed metal). Learn more in our guide to Australian Roof Types

4. Don’t Do It Yourself

DIY roof restorations are never a good idea. It may look easy on TV, but in reality, it can be quite dangerous. Initially, it may seem like DIY will save you money, but in the long run, it can become very costly and time consuming.
