Top FAQs about Roof Replacement

Replacing your roof can be a big investment, so it’s worth taking the time to make the right decision about materials, finding reputable roof installers and more. 


There are lots of factors to consider when replacing your roof. At Roo, we have decades of experience working on Brisbane roofs and know all there is to know about roofing. 


Here are some of our most frequently asked questions (and answers) for you to make an informed decision when considering replacing your roof. 


How long is a roof meant to last?

The lifespan of your roof will depend on when it was made/fitted, the climate of where you live, and the materials it’s made of. The durability of your roof can also be affected by storms, heavy rain, hail, humidity, and the level of salt in the air. On average, a roof should be replaced every 30 years. Metal roofing, such as Colorbond, can last much longer. We wrote a blog about this earlier in the year. Check it out here.


How much does a roof replacement cost?

There is no set price for a roof replacement. The cost will depend on the size of your house, which material used in the old roof, and which material you are going to use for the new one. Most roofing companies charge by square metre, so the larger your roof is, the more expensive it’s going to be. 


What is the best type of roof?

The best types of roofing for Australian homes are steel, terracotta, concrete and slate. Metal roofs like Colorbond are the most cost-effective option, because of their durability and easy maintenance.


Does a new roof increase home value?

Yes! A new roof can increase your home value by an average of $17,000. Similarly, if you don’t replace your roof before trying to sell, you will find that your home value significantly decreases. When people are considering buying a house, they will always take note of the condition of the roof. 


How do I find a good roofing company?

When replacing your roof, it is important to hire the services of a professional and reliable company. Don’t be tempted by cheap quotes, as these will result in bodged jobs that require costly repairs later. To invest in your roof and add value to your home, turn to the experts at Roo Roofing.
