Roof Installs and Replacements
Our company follows a systematic approach in ensuring that our clients get to enjoy their new roofs, and to avoid unnecessary costs and delays in the project. These are the steps that we follow:
Removing Roof and Protecting Property
All roofing projects start with protecting your property. Our experts will carefully put covers over nearby plants and landscaping with durable covers to make sure that roof debris does not lead to damage.
Getting Rid of Damaged Sheathing
The moment the shingles are removed, our team of professionals carefully study the exposed sheathing to check if there is any damage that needs to be fixed. It is usually common for parts of the old sheathing to be damaged. During this time, we will remove and replace the damaged sheathing with a brand new sheathing to serve as a concrete foundation for your new roof.
Installing Drip Edge
Using drip edges assist in protecting the roof by making sure that there is proper water shedding and in preventing horizontal rain from penetrating into the system during storms.
Sealing Vents and Pipes
All of our roofs contain penetrations that enable air to go through the roof into interior spaces. This is to allow sewer ventilation and curve vents to ventilate bathrooms or kitchen ranges, and more. All of the vents will be sealed using a large bead of roofing cement, making sure that no water will seep the shingle.
Applying Roof Shingles
Our qualified roofers will carefully install your selected roofing shingles. Our company follows procedures and industry standards to ensure the safety of our clients and of our staff.
There are a lot of roofing materials for roof replacement in the market, and this includes corrugated iron, steel, concrete, ceramic, metal and composite tiles, slate, shingles and more.
Each of these options has its characteristics that will fit your needs and specifications.

The need for a reroof arises when the pre-existing roof is removed from an old building and a new roofing system is placed. Between a reroof or recovery, such would depend on the situation.
Our company recommends that if you can remove the deck, reroof is always more beneficial. It enabled us to point out and correct underlying damage, avoiding you from unforeseen issues in the future.

How much does a roof replacement cost in Australia?
The cost of roof replacement will depend on the materials chosen. For asphalt and clay tiles, the costs are placed at a lower price range. For an average-sized home in Australia, at 190m2, the roof replacement cost ranges at $12,000 to $30,000.
Does my roof replacement/ re-roof come with a warranty?
Roofing contractors usually have a two-year warranty to cover any defects in the installation happening within the first 2 years. Keep in mind that it is always best to ask your contractors for the warranty coverage.
How much does a roof repair cost?
If your roof is in great need of repairing, don’t shrug it off just because you’re worrying about the cost. Neglecting the needs of repairs and maintenance can cause an even greater roof repair cost. Typically, roof repair experts may charge by the hour or per square metre.
For the hourly rates, such can be anywhere from $40 to up to $90 per hour. For a square metre roof repair, such can cost $15 to $35 per m2 on average. However, the cost per square metre will change depending on a number of things such as, but not limited to:
- The type of roofing material
- The quality of the roofing materials
- The level of difficulty of accessing the roof.
- The roof’s pitch or complexity.
- The services and expertise needed
- The type of repair being executed
Should I repair or replace my roof?
If the damage to your roof is not that big, a total roof replacement might not be an ideal option. This is so, because a roof is meant to last for many years and stand against outdoor weathers. If the damage is limited to tiny areas, roofing experts can easily repair it.
If you just paid for the roof that was recently installed on your house, it is best to make the most out of that investment. On that note, it’s best to keep the current roof in functioning condition for as long as it can stand. Don’t think that just because a roof has suffered minor damage, the need to replace the roof arises.
Does a roofer have to be licensed in Queensland Australia?
Since there are different skill sets required by roofers, the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) issues trade licences in your local, and there are two general classes of licence are issued by the QBCC:
- Trade Contractor
- Nominee Supervisor – the Nominee Supervisor is usually an employee for a contractor, while a contractor’s licence is a full licence and requires the supervision of workers.
A licensed tradesperson must perform and handle any building or home improvement project that costs over $3,300 in Queensland. When it comes to roofing, the person or company you hire the services from must hold one or both of two licences:
- Roof and Wall Cladding
- Roof Tiling
