A tile to metal roof replacement is a transformative process for our clients' and their homes. As you can imagine, it requires well thought out planning and the execution itself to be well managed.
CHANGING THE ROOF'S SUPPORT - ROOF BATTENS
Tiled roofs have a different supporting structure to metal roofs. Tiles are laid on timber battens, metal roofs usually are laid on metal battens. We often find when we remove the roof tiles that the timber battens have deteriorated and are ready for replacement.
When discussing a tile to metal roof replacement with our client, we are often asked if we will remove all of the roof in one go. The short answer is NO! Melbourne's weather is far too unpredictable to do this. Typically we remove only the tiles we can comfortably replace with metal roofing for the day. Tarps are always on hand as well to ensure we leave the property water tight at the end of each day.
If you don't have insulation, it's a great time to have insulation batts installed. If you've had the old blow in insulation, it's also a good time to have it vacuumed out and replaced with new batts. The difference will be noticeable.
WHAT WILL IT COST FOR A TILE TO METAL ROOF REPLACEMENT?
There is no definitive answer we can give over the phone to this question. The reason being that there are many variables that will affect the price:
- how close to the edge of the dwelling can we get skips?
- how many metres of metal roofing battens are required?
- how many square metres of roofing is to be replaced?
- what is the complexity of the roof line, eg how many ridges, valleys?
- are we replacing the guttering as well? and downpipes?
- how many metres of flashings and roof capping do we require?
- will the tile to metal roof replacement be in Zincalume or Colorbond?
- do we require scaffold to meet Worksafe OH&S requirements?
Clearly, the question of cost can only be answered with a roofing quotation. We can often have a look on NearMaps or Google Earth to give you a ball park figure. If it's within budget and you are wanting to proceed, we can schedule a site measure to firm up the price.
