All roof systems need to be replaced after a period of time. Many people are concerned about the price of re-roofing – but taking into account the overall aesthetics of the building and the potential damage a leaking roof can cause, the benefits far outweigh the costs.
Signs that you need a new roof
Re-roofing: What you need to considerRe-roofing is a great time to insulate your roof space, remove asbestos from your roof and clean or clear gutters. It’s also an opportunity to modernise your home, change the colour scheme or give it a completely new look with a contemporary long-run roof. Other considerations include:
Asbestos removalAsbestos is a specialised product to deal with and needs to be removed by an approved contractor. We hold certification issued from DOL (Department of Labour) to conduct asbestos removal.
Re-pitchingYou might also consider re-pitching your roof at this time. You can engage a builder of your choice, or if it is a minor change we can often get one of our roofers to do this while they re-roof your home. With Aaron’s building background he will be able to tell you more about the process.
New Purlins Timber Purlins are what roofs are typically fixed to. Existing purlins are sometimes affected by rot, especially on older and usually leaky roofs that we are replacing or repairing. If our roofers become aware of this when existing roofing is removed, upon discovery of degraded timber we advise the customer, and then our highly skilled roofers will be able to replace it.
