Had the old decramastic type roof tiles replaced on my roof with colourbond roof sheets by Vantage Point Roofing in late November of 2019. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of customer service, professionalism and the quality of installation that the team had provided. The multiple persons i dealt with over the phone including the installation team were friendly, attentive to my needs/questions and I felt they were more than capable of delivering the final product.

The customer service I experienced with Vantage Point Roofing was fantastic, Dan stepped me through every step of the process. The roof looks amazing! So happy I went with vantage.

WONDERFUL! Our roof wasnt the easiest job, having valleys and 3 box gutters all with the original iron orb from 1955. Paul, Andrew, Harley and Chris worked tirelessly, so our building was water tight. Luke also worked hard on quoting and explaining the roofing lingo. The place looks amazing, we are very happy with the job, thank you guys.

Vantage Point Roofing did a wonderful job of replacing our roof and guttering. Couldn’t be happier with their communication, and willingness to help with extras such as installing insulation.
Unlike other companies, moving the solar hot water system and replacing skylight was was no problem, and all for a competitive price.
They were clean and prompt and I would have no hesitation recommending them to others!

Honest, Reliable and oozing professionalism. The team at Vantage Point roofing makes the process from start to finish easy, from detailed and personalised quoting, right through to the final product. Would highly recommend.
