Re-roofing Perth for 30 Years
The Top Re-Roofing Extras
Once the old tiles or iron have been removed many of our Perth re-roofing clients take the opportunity to have some of the following options installed:
Insulation: Building Blanket Insulation (commonly referred to as Anticon) can be fitted between the new steel purlins and roof sheeting to keep your house cool in summer and warm in winter. Your savings on energy costs means it can pay for itself within a few months.
Skylights: Bring the warmth and brightness of natural light into your home without the heat.
Ventilation: A simple way of boosting air circulation and decreasing interior humidity, ventilation is almost a must-have in the Australian climate. Choose from traditional Whirlybirds or a streamlined ridge ventilator such as an E-Vent.
Our Re-Roofing Process
When you call for your obligation-free quote, it is the owner of Perth Roof that you will meet on site, not a salesperson. That is 34 years of hands-on experience and expert advice in the industry, so give us a call when you are comparing options.
Most roof replacements in Western Australia require a Building Permit from the local Permit Authority, Council or Shire. This is the first step towards your new roof, and Perth Roof will handle all the paperwork and lodge on your behalf.
When we actually get started, the first step is to remove and dispose of all the old tiles, iron or asbestos. We then replace the old tile battens with new steel purlins. At this stage, we can also replace gutters and downpipes. With the purlins in, it is time to install building blanket insulation where applicable, and plan for skylights and ventilation.
As a Registered Building Company we then ensure that we install the appropriate Tie Downs to tie the existing roof structure to the walls, all according to a Structural Engineer’s specifications. The type of Tie Downs used will vary according to the type of walls you have. Your new corrugated Colorbond® or Zincalume® roof sheets are then laid and secured with Climaseal 50mm Tek screws.
Once your new roof is installed we clean the entire site, removing all rubbish and debris.
How A Roof Is Replaced
How often is roof replacement needed?
Slate, copper and tile roofs can last more than 50 years. Homeowners with wood shake roofs should expect them to last about 30 years, while fiber cement shingles last about 25 years and asphalt shingle/composition roofs last about 20 years, the NAHB found. Climate and weather conditions, such as snow, hail and hurricanes, can cut the life span of all types of roofs.
At Perth Roof Replacements once it's fixed we also offer a 10 year guarantee!
What is the difference between Colorbond® and Zincalume®
Both Zincalume® and Colorbond® are Registered Trade Marks of BluescopeLysaght Steel and are manufactured here in Australia. Zincalume® is the modern equivalent of galvanized iron with the same silver finish, only longer lasting and much lighter. It is steel coated in a zinc/aluminium/magnesium alloy making it durable, strong and corrosion resistant.
Colorbond® is Zincalume steel with an adhesive, primer and a high gloss colour layer baked onto it. There are over 20 colours to choose from. Both come with BluescopeLysaght’s product warranty and Perth Roof no leak guarantee.
Is roof replacement covered by homeowners insurance?
Homeowners insurance policy covers the replacement of a roof, regardless of age, only if it is the result of an act of nature. Roofs that have exceeded their intended life span are not eligible for replacement because they fall under the general maintenance responsibility of the homeowner.
Regardless of what the circumstances are Perth Roof Replacements is here to help.
Why do I need a Registered Builder?
If your re-roof is over $20,000 (inc. GST), then the law requires it be carried out by a Registered Builder. If it is not, the work is illegal. A Registered Builder has been examined, in theory and practice, by the Building Commission of Western Australia, and is able to provide all the necessary insurances which protect you from default by the builder for a period of 6 years after completion, bringing compete peace of mind. But even if the re-roof of your home is less than $20,000, why compromise on quality and expertise?
Why do I need a Building Permit?
Western Australian law states that re-roofing must be approved by your local council. This means submitting a Building Permit Application or risking fines. Nobody likes struggling with paperwork and plans, not to mention finding a Structural Engineer to provide a Tie Down detail! But you don’t have to worry because Perth Roof coordinates all the necessary paperwork and lodges the application on your behalf. It just doesn’t get any simpler than that.
"Just wanted to pop you a line to say thank you so very much for our new roof...woke up yesterday and heard the rain on the roof and it made me smile...not only for the sound, but thinking HA! - no more leaks!!!!"
JOSIE & HARRY OUTRAM
"I would recommend you to people who need work done. The tiles on our late 1950's timber frame home were past their use by date...you did a wonderful job replacing it with a new Colorbond roof, and replacing some of the timbers. Thank you and best wishes to all at Perth Roof."
VIVIEN & GARY MILES
"Thank you so much for the fantastic job you have done on our roof. We were amazed by how quickly and cleanly the job was done and at a very reasonable price. Thanks again we would not hesitate to recommend Perth Roof to anyone in need of a new roof."
