ROOFING FAQS

There is no easy answer to a question like, ‘how much does Colorbond roofing cost?’ as there are so many factors to consider. There are the obvious points such as the size and surface area to cover, but there are also a number of other variables that affect the quoted price of Colorbond roofing.

There is not only the cost of roof replacement to consider, but also whether the current guttering, downpipes, or fascia need replacing. These are factors that can easily influence your Colorbond roofing prices.

As a minimum, when installing a new Colorbond roof, it is a requirement that we install reflective foil (sisalation paper, or sarking), to protect the underside of the roof sheeting from the condensation that can form in your ceiling.

This reflective foil can also be installed with a 55ml layer of fiberglass insulation on one side, which most people refer to as builders blanket. Usually it comes with a R value of R1.55, but you can install different blankets with higher R values if required. It is best to talk to one of our friendly staff about this, as homeowners needs can differ depending on whether your home is already adequately insulated.

Lead time is generally around 2-3 weeks from quotation approval. If a job is urgent, depending on availability, we are able to commence work within 2-3 days.

As we all know, weather can be a tad unpredictable. However, to protect your home as best as we can, we only strip as many tiles/sheets as we can lay in a day, or before it is going to rain.

At the end of every day, your home is left watertight and protected from rain, so even if it rains for a day in the middle of your job your roof will not leak. In case of emergencies, our teams have large, sturdy tarps which we can use to temporarily cover your roof.

There are many benefits of a Colorbond roof over a tiled roof. They include:

Lower household heating and cooling costs: Colorbond doesn’t hold heat like tiles do, which means you don’t have to run your cooling system for as long in summer.

Colorbond comes in a range of 20 colours

The safety of our employees, and protection of homeowners are the number one priority on any job that we do.

According to Worksafe procedures, any edge with a fall of greater than 2.0 meters requires active fall prevention, so we safety rail every edge of your roof possible to make sure work is completed as safely as possible.

The safety rail we use is very stable, and adheres to Australian Standards. If safety rail is not possible in certain situations, we will use static line or fixed point harnessing to complete the job.

Our employees must follow SWMS forms on every job, so the homeowner is safe in the knowledge that works are being completed in the safest way possible.

It is important to note that if any workplace accident is to occur during works, the homeowner is usually involved in any WorkSafe hearings and procedures that might follow. That is why protecting our employees and homeowners in our number 1 priority.
