Problem Solved Roofing Townsville

Metal Roofing Townsville

It doesn’t matter if you are providing a roof for a new house, a restored home, or a complete roof replacement. You inevitably need to choose the best material for the job. In Australia we have traditionally used metal roofing, such as corrugated iron, particularly in rural areas, instead of clay and concrete based material.
 
Currently the most popular metal systems have been aluminium, zincalume, galvanised steel and Colorbond.
 
Right from the beginning of Australia’s history, we have always used metal roofing, because it is so durable. It stands up to anything that you can throw at it, no matter how harsh the Australian climate is.
 
It has become the best selection for Australian building construction, whether it be homes, offices, shops, schools and commercial buildings.

There are many reasons why metal roofs are such a popular choice in Australia, as detailed below:

1. Metal roofs are intrinsically strong and durable, particularly when you take into consideration how comparatively light the material is. Extreme conditions such as cyclones will test all roofing materials, but metal roofs are the best in every test.

2. Bush fires can impact homes quite often through floating embers. Metal roofs provide natural resistance to such fire spread.

3. It is impossible for any pest or termite to attack metal.

4. The cost of maintenance and repairs for metal roofs is minimal, as they are almost impervious to corrosion and decay.

5. Many metal roof systems come pre-coated, so there is no need for painting, and are naturally highly resistant to the typical natural forces found in North Queensland.

    When it comes to the overall cost of a roof installation, there is more to keep in mind than just the basic cost of the roof material. It is true that metal roofing costs more than some of the other materials. But the flip side of the coin, when it comes to overall roofing costs, is the installation cost and the supporting roof structure cost.

    Because of the larger size of the roof metal sheets and the comparative lightness, compared to concrete and terracotta tiles, there is less support structure required and less time to carry out the attachment of the roof sheeting.

    As a result, the combined overall cost of a sheet metal roof installation is significantly less than the comparable tile installation.

    OK, that argument may apply for larger roof installations, but what about roof restorations, where the roof area may be smaller and the existing roof support structure is being used instead of being replaced?

    Consequently some of the above advantages in costs may not apply, but there are still other important factors worth considering, which will affect overall costs in the long term. When extreme weather conditions are taken into account, such as hail, high winds like cyclones, quite often tile roofs tend to suffer considerable damage compared to metal roofing.

    If time is brought into the overall assessment, metal roofs on even smaller projects and restorations are likely to be the best and cheapest option.
