What happens during an average metal roof replacement?
During an average residential roof replacement we:
- Remove the existing roof (usually made of Galvanised Iron, Decramastic Tiles or Asbestos),
- Replace any damaged battens with new steel battens – free of charge!
- Install insulation (if requested),
- Install new Zincalume© or Colorbond© roof, and
- Tidy the property as if we had never been there!
The average sized roof replacement takes approximately 2-3 days (removal and installation).
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 due to constant moisture contact. This is usually from dirt and debris build up where short metal roof sheets have been lapped. To solve this problem, roof sheets are now bought in custom lengths which eliminates these issues.
Concrete or Terracotta Tile
You may currently have a tile roof and are considering a tile to metal roof conversion. Tiles crack easily and often require more frequent ongoing maintenance than a roof made of Bluescope Steel.
Metal roofs generally suit a more modern aesthetic than tile roofs and though durable, metal roofs are much lighter than tile roofs which puts lets strain on your building’s frame.
As 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 which often leads to roof leaks.
Also known as fibro, super six, asbestos cement or AC sheeting, the hazards of asbestos is well documented. Asbestos roof sheeting may deteriorate from 30+ years of enduring Queensland’s harsh climate. When disturbed or damaged, the fibres can become airborne and if inhaled, pose a risk to residents.
At Vantage Point Roofing, we aim to remove your asbestos from your property the same day we remove it from your roof. Additionally, all asbestos removal work is carried out by licensed professionals, ensuring your safety.
