Roof

How long does it take to replace a roof?

The length of time to replace a roof depends on several factors. Weather (rain and wind), style of roof (material used) and the height of the roof. We allow an average of 2-3 days for a standard sized roof, or 3 to 4 days for a large or unusual designed roof.

What happens if there is bad weather when replacing our roof?

The roofer will assess the weather at the start of each day and determine whether or not to start roofing. A roof is a dangerous slip hazard even when slightly wet, so no work is undertaken in the rain, unless it is an emergency. Not many people realize that windy weather is also dangerous. When bad weather is a possibility, the roofers will only remove a small section at a time and replace the new sheets in their place. This means that at any time during the day, it is only a few minutes to ensure that the roof is watertight.

What length of warranty do we get with our new roof?

We offer a 2 year installation warranty on our roof for the workmanship aspect, while the product warranty from Bluescope varies depending on several conditions.

Colour

What is the difference between colorbond and zincalume?

Both materials are available in all profiles, and have a coating on the base metal. Zincalume is obviously more reflective than colorbond, is generally cooler and is therefore used frequently on large industrial applications. Colorbond is used more prominently in residential applications as it adds more character and appeal to the house.

What is the best way to get additional light into my house?

As per the insulation there are a number of different options here depending on site specific issues. For roofs which aren’t lined (don’t have a ceiling), the most common for of natural light is achieved by using either fiberglass or polycarbonate sheeting. Once again, each of these have their pro’s and con’s and it is recommended that you make your own mind up as to your preference. For roofs that are lined (have a ceiling), the most common option is to install a skylight. Once again they take many forms and shapes and vary depending on the supplier. Below is a link to the two main suppliers of skylights for you to suggest which option is better suited for your application.
