The Roof Replacement Process

1. Understanding the Need for a New Roof

When homeowners experience persistent leaks, often stemming from roofs made of galvanised iron or decramastic tile, they look towards a durable solution. Enter Bluescope Steel—a trusted name in metal roofing. Not only does it offer a long-term fix for those troublesome drips, but it also provides numerous other benefits that make total roof replacement an appealing option.

2. Out with the Damaged, In with the Steel

You might wonder, what gives your roof its structure? The answer is battens. These are long strips that provide a foundation upon which the roof rests. While many homes have timber battens, we’ve noticed that over time they tend to succumb to wear and tear.

Our approach is proactive. During the re-roofing process, we identify and replace any weakened timber battens with robust steel battens, ensuring your new roof has a solid base. And the best part? We handle this replacement without any additional cost to you.

3. Prioritising Comfort with Insulation (if requested)

Before we introduce your home to its new roof, there’s the matter of insulation. While some homes might already have it, others could benefit from its addition. Insulation plays a pivotal role in maintaining temperature balance, making your home cosy during winter and comfortably cool during summer.

We often find homeowners pondering on the type of insulation suitable for their needs, or even if their home requires it at all. Let us guide you through it. By deciding on insulation before the re-roofing process, you’re in for a smoother, more cost-effective experience.

4. Laying the Best: Colorbond© or Zincalume©

Here’s where the magic happens. Opting for the superior quality of Australian Bluescope Steel, we ensure that your home is adorned with the best metal roofing on the market. Whether you choose Colorbond© or Zincalume©, rest assured, our commitment to quality remains unflinching. With steel roofing, you’re not just investing in durability, but also in warranties that stand by the product.

5. Finishing with Finesse

Once the new roof is securely in place, our team sets to work on the final touches.

Roof restoration isn’t just about the roof itself — it’s about ensuring the entire property looks pristine. We go the extra mile, tidying up and ensuring edge protection. The goal? Making sure the only evidence of our presence is the gleaming new roof overhead.

Remember, for most homes in Brisbane, on the Gold Coast and beyond, the transformation from an old roof to a gleaming new one takes a mere 2–3 days. If you’re wondering about the specific duration for your home, however, you can dive deeper here.

At Vantage Point Roofing, we believe in transparency, quality, and a job well done. Join us in the journey of giving your home the upgrade it truly deserves.

Common Roof Replacement Types

Galvanised Iron

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 that exist on older roofs.

When ‘gal’ roofs are due for replacement there is no better option than to have a Bluescope Colorbond or Zincalume roof installed.

Galvanised roof replacement

Decramastic Tiles

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.

As this product can be difficult and expensive to repair, for their peace of mind (and back pocket), our customers with decramastic roofs have all opted to replace their roof with Colorbond.
