Project Description

In March of 2023 we replaced a roof on a free standing house in Hunters Hill. The original roof was Terracotta tile and the second story extension was also done in Terracotta tile. The new roof installed was Monument Colorbond.

We installed our own guard rail (fall protection system) around the perimeter of the roof first up and then started with the upstairs area which was relatively small but had many faces as it was a hip and valley style roof. We installed new treated pine battens, 60mm Anti-condensation blanket and new 0.48BMT (base metal thickness) Corrugated Colorbond Roof sheeting, with Roll top ridge capping and valleys to suit.

The lower roof also wasn’t large but had quite a few planes and steps, in and out around the second story which required carefully installed custom Colorbond flashings. The timber cladding was to be retained which was challenging, as we needed to get the flashings installed behind it without excessive damage to the cladding.

There was also a low pitched roof metal roof at the front, which was originally a verandah but had been closed in to become Living space for the home. This roof was replaced to 0.48 Kliplok to suit the low pitch and custom Colorbond flashings were fabricated and installed to suit.

In summary:

  • For this project, we focused on delivering a complete roofing solution that met the unique needs of the home:
  • Fall Protection: Installed our own guard rail system around the perimeter of the roof
  • Upstairs Area: Hip and valley style roof with new treated pine battens, 60mm Anti-condensation blanket, and 0.48 BMT Corrugated Colorbond Roof sheeting
  • Lower Roof: Multiple planes and steps requiring custom Colorbond flashings, careful installation to preserve existing timber cladding
  • Low Pitched Roof: Replaced with 0.48 Kliplok to suit the low pitch and custom Colorbond flashings fabricated and installed

The work was completed on budget and on schedule, with only a slight rain delay. The clients were thrilled with the end result, showcasing our dedication to exceptional craftsmanship and customer satisfaction.
