In three words: Time and Storms…

All Roofing Services has been successfully operating since 2009 and we have completed literally thousands of roof repairs and replacements in the past 14 years. In that time we have had some seriously challenging weather conditions, from prolonged rain periods (such as the whole of 2022) and some intense east coast lows that can really test the best roofs!

These conditions do interesting things to the roof repair and replacement market in general. Firstly, it does create a lot of demand as weak, old or faulty areas of your roof get found out, which of course results in calls to your “go-to roofer” or whomever you can get out if they are too busy.

The “whomever you can get” is a bit pot luck though, as there’s a fair chance that if they are not flat-out busy during these periods, that is for good reason. They are either new to the game or they do not do good-quality work and so have little business.

After Covid lockdowns and during the extremely wet year last year, I noticed more and more roofing contractors popping up to meet a very high demand. Many roofers felt the timing was right to go out on their own and do their own business, and many have done well, but the real test is yet to come for not only them, but also the consumers that have used the new contractor in town, unfortunately.

The dry year we are having now is making things competitive again and market conditions are back to more of a “normal” (whatever that is). The usual approach by the inexperienced operator who needs work is to drop their prices to get more work in. They will then have to rush or cut corners to make a profit to allow them to survive. But when that next big storm comes and they have under-quoted jobs to carry out and far too many call backs for workmanship issues, they are going to be in real trouble, and so will the consumers that used them. Many roofing companies will simply disappear.

Licenses are very easy to get these days and are only one of the things you need to look for when choosing a roofing contractor. But, my ultimate advice to anyone who wants peace of mind when choosing a roofing contractor is to consider experience as the most important factor. Hence, the only real test of a good roof is: TIME and STORMS.

In the theme of standing the test of time, below are a few roofs that we completed many years ago and are still going strong today.


I am very happy with the beautiful roof that All Roofing Services installed so efficiently. The team work was excellent, very punctual, neat, tidy and clean; even the jasmine all along the fence of my home survived completely unscathed. I could hardly believe this. I recommend All Roofing Services Pty Ltd for their quality of work, very reasonable pricing and patience when delays occurred and am happy to pass my recommendation to associates who may have roofing needs. Please, to all management, office and roofing staff at ARS, accept my gratitude for the excellent work carried out and the beautiful result you achieved, despite quite adverse weather conditions during September and other obstacles that occurred earlier during the months of planning and preparations.

Great to work with this company! With juggling the rain and working in with another company, they were patient and always kept us up to date. They took the awkward Inner West access in their stride. Thank you!
