Residential Roof Replacements

All Roofing Services specialises in metal roof replacements on Sydney homes. We can change just about any roof into a new Colorbond or Zincalume roof. Most of our work is domestic re-roofs, but we also do industrial and commercial roof replacements too. ARS has come to specialise in inner-west roof replacements through years of experience. The inner-west of Sydney is a unique place for roofing. Access is often difficult with small lanes (or no lane at all!), the roofs can be steep and high making them dangerous for in-experienced roofers and most homes will usually have at least one extension – which can often be a little unusual in the roofing department! In short – very few roof replacement jobs are the same in the inner west and can often have a few challenges which the inexperienced roofer will struggle with. We have seen new roofs that were probably worse than the one that was replaced – so don’t make the mistake of working out which quote to go with based only on price. Make sure the roofing contractor knows what he is doing. (Asking for local references is one good way to check.) You also need to check what kind of material has been quoted for. There are more and more imported materials these days and whist most of it is probably meets Australian Standards – buying Australian made Colorbond or Zincalume for your new roof is the best way to go. Zincalume comes with a Manufacturer’s warranty of 20 years – and Colorbond is 25 years. These are tried, tested and proven materials for Australian conditions – and [...]

Roof Repair in Sydney

All Roofing Services also specialises in roof repairs in Sydney. Roof repairs can be very simple, extremely difficult or anywhere in between. They can be very successful and sometimes a complete waste of time and money. You would think that roof repairs were generally easier than installing a new roof – well sometimes it is – but often they can be very tricky indeed. Most roof repairs are temporary in nature but they can be done properly. The first step in fixing a leak is to find out exactly what is causing the leak. Finding this can sometimes take longer than doing the actual repair! Basically, if the roofing contractor is not totally sure he found the cause – he probably didn’t and any work that was done was done in vain. Julian Dirou (ARS owner) has developed an exact process for finding and fixing leaks which is being turned into a manual for homeowners and contractors. (Please enquire for a draft copy) Finding the exact cause of the leak cannot be understated in importance. But doing the repairs properly is also very important. Non-standard repairs such as waterproofing materials or loads of sealant on metal roofs is a bad idea and can often end up making the problem worse or create a new problem. Sealants have their place, but the average roof repair man or handyman will tend to go overboard so it is important to get someone who knows what they are doing. The other thing to consider is cost. Yes, a roof repair will generally be cheaper than a roof replacement but why not get a quote [...]
