Common Roof Replacement Types
Corrugated, galvanised iron sheets are the most common form of roof covering found in Queensland.
The number one reason that old galvanised roofs rust is constant moisture contact. This is usually from dirt and debris build up where short metal roof sheets have been lapped. Roof sheets are now bought in custom lengths which eliminate the issues associated with lapping sheets.
As possibly one of the most disliked roofing materials in existence, Decramastic roof tiles are pressed metal tile strips that were made to imitate concrete tiles. Produced from light gauge metal, it deforms very easily if walked on – often leading to roof leaks.
Also known as fibro, super six, asbestos cement or AC sheeting, the hazards of asbestos is well documented. After 30+ years of being exposed to Queensland’s harsh climate, asbestos roof sheeting is often left eroded exposing deadly fibres and putting residents at risk.
