Metal Roof Replacement Melbourne / Re Roofing Melbourne

A high quality and durable roof is a home’s first defence against harsh weather and other natural hazards.

When your roof fails, you leave your home susceptible to further damage, including weakened foundations, leaks, and other water damage. The cost benefits of complete roof replacement far outweigh patch repairs carried out over a longer period of time.

Roof replacement (or re-roofing) maintains the integrity of your home while providing it with a tough and superior roof that will last for decades. Robust COLORBOND steel is Watermaster Roofing’s metal roof of choice.

Why Might You Consider Metal Roofing Replacement?

Your roof is exposed to a lot of abuse on a daily basis. It puts up with sun, rain, wind, hail and flying branches. Each of these can do a number on your roof.

While roof maintenance helps you keep on top of problems, roof repair – for metal roofs or otherwise – eventually reaches the point of diminishing returns, where the cost needed to maintain it becomes even more expensive than replacing it altogether.

With most types of roofing, this point takes decades (and oftentimes even longer) to reach. And once it reaches this point, roof replacement or re-roofing might be in order.

Age

General wear and tear affects everything – from the clothes we wear to yes, our roofs. If your roof is getting up there in years, it’s likely in need of a professional inspection to diagnose any problems and create the right solution. For some older roofs, that might necessitate a complete roof replacement.

Missing or broken tiles

Missing tiles are an instant entryway for water to enter your roof cavity, leading to ceiling, wall, and structural damage.

Sometimes this can be repaired - in other cases, it can’t. Protect the integrity of your home with metal roofing to replace an old and problematic tiled roof.

Sagging roof

Due to its location, clearly seeing your roof may actually be harder than you think. But if you do notice a dip or sag along your roofline (usually in the centre), talk to a professional roofer ASAP.

Exposure to moisture is a common cause of a sagging roof - water build up on your roof, causing sections of it to sage. If your roof has a sag, your home could be at risk of an imminent collapse!

Buckling shingles

Asphalt shingles may look good, but they can lead to a number of problematic issues for your roof. They can curl, crack, blister, and rot, while moss and algae love to grow on them. It’s hard to come back from this type of growth - oftentimes, complete roof replacement is needed to restore your home’s look.

Temperature problems

Did you know that metal roofing is actually more effective at keeping your house cool in summer than tiles or shingles? Metal roofing (and proper insulation) absorbs heat before it seeps into your home, while heat-resistant finishes reflect heat from your building.

If your metal roof stops offering these benefits, you may require metal roof repair, or in extreme cases, a complete roof replacement.

Why Choose a Metal Roof When it Comes to Re-Roofing?

  • Improved insulation

Heat-reflective metal sheets can keep your home cooler during summer by reducing heat transfer and reflecting solar energy away from your home.

  • Easy maintenance

Metal roofing also requires minimal maintenance over its lifespan, making it the ideal choice for a roof that just works.

  • Durability

COLORBOND steel is built for the tough Aussie climate and can withstand strong winds, hail, rain, and other harsh elements. COLORBOND undergoes tested in lab conditions as well as real-world testing.

  • Longevity

Metal roofs can last for decades – up to 50 years. And thanks to modern metallurgy and protective coatings, it often ends up soldiering on for much, much longer than that.

  • Great for the environment

Not only is metal roofing 100% recyclable at the end of its life, but new metal roofing is made from recycled content! Additionally, metal’s thermal efficiency reduces your energy usage and by extension, your carbon footprint.

  • Affordability

Metal roof sheets are significantly cheaper to purchase than an equivalent amount of tile. Additionally, the installation process is much faster, reducing labour costs.
