What is better – Tiles or Colorbond?2023-03-15T04:32:06+11:00

“Depends on who you ask!” is one answer, but each has advantages and disadvantages.

  • A new Colorbond roof is lighter than tiles, so it is a good option for an old roof where the roof or building structure has begun to sag, crack or twist under the weight of the old, tiled roof.
  • A new Colorbond roof will also tend to tie the whole roof together making it stronger.
  • A tiled roof is more susceptible to severe hail damage than a metal roof as even new tiles can crack with good size hail, whereas the metal may be dented, but not break.
  • A Colorbond roof is much better under trees too, as falling tree branches tend to break tiles, whereas the Colorbond may only be dented.
  • Steel roofing is also more versatile. It can be used on any pitch and made into all kinds of shapes.

And arguably, a new Colorbond roof just looks a lot better!

Should I use Zincalume or Colorbond for my roof?2023-03-15T02:23:07+11:00

This is really a question of what look you are after as the cost is very similar. Colorbond has Zincalume steel as its base and is then painted with multiple layers using patented methods that have been tried and tested in Australian conditions.

Zincalume is a fantastic product, but Colorbond is far Superior in terms of its durability and look. It comes in 22 different colours. Zincalume has that silver steel roof colour that many people like and up until recently was slightly cheaper, hich is why it was used more commonly on commercial buildings with large roofs.

Should I replace or repair my roof?2023-03-15T02:22:41+11:00

This is a common question and fundamentally depends on two factors: how bad the existing roof is and your budget. The only way to know how bad the roof really is would be to get an un-biased professional opinion. Some companies only do roof replacements so they will only try and sell you a new roof. Some only do repairs and will tell you there’s a good 20 more years for your roof when actually it really is best to replace it now.

One important thing to remember though is: The longer you leave it, the more likely it is that water will get into places it shouldn’t.

If you are wondering if you should get your roof replaced or repaired, the best thing to do is to get an All Roofing Services estimator to look at your roof who can then advise you on your best course of action.

Of course, if you have the means, another important thing to take into consideration is how much value a new Colorbond roof will add to your home. All Roofing Services roof replacements are very aesthetic and look great for years to come – guaranteed. Approximately one third of what you can see of your home from the street is roof, so installing a new Colorbond roof can make a big difference and add a lot of value to your home.

Don’t wait until you have water damage in your home to let you know that you need a new roof!
