RE-ROOFING HOMES ACROSS ADELAIDE FOR OVER A DECADE
If your original house roof is leaking and showing signs of age or is beyond repair, it may be time to consider re-roofing. Re-roofing is simply the process of removing the original roof surface, be it tiled or iron and installing new Colourbond roof sheeting. The original tiled or metal roof may have become brittle or showing signs of corrosion or rust. When a roof reaches this point it’s best to stop investing good money in the original roof surface and opt for a higher cost yet better value option of re-roofing. Re-roofing will increase the value and aesthetic appearance of your home instantly. It also allows for the performance of the roof to be enhanced by Insulating the new roof sheeting as part of the reroofing process.
CONCRETE TILE TO COLOURBOND RE-ROOFING
As concrete tile and terracotta tiled roofs age they lose integrity and begin to become porous and brittle. Without regular roof maintenance a tiled roof may have run its usable life after 40 – 50 years. At this point our recommendation is always to re-roof with Colourbond roof sheeting. There are many benefits of this type of conversion.
THE BENEFITS OF REROOFING IN COLOURBOND
Dust and bushfire risk
For re-roofing of an original metal roof the panels and rails must be removed but the original hardware can generally be reused. The solar guys always check the integrity of the solar panels themselves, making sure there has been no water damage or cell failure before going back on. If they find any problems you will always be notified and new panels can be an option.
THE COST OF RE-ROOFING IN ADELAIDE
At Oz-Roof we really don’t use square metre rates to price our re-roofing projects. We attend each job and inspect the roof and the whole site for access before giving a formal quote. Some of the bigger factors that affect price are the pitch of the roof and the access to the roof edge. These two factors alone influence price more than the outright size of the roof. A low pitch roof comes with reduced difficulty and therefore reduces labour. The opposite is true for a steep pitch roof. When looking at access we try to find the most efficient way of getting our work done. There are many different types of re-roofing. From Iron to Iron and from tile to Iron are all different prices. Also no two properties are the same and for that reason the below is just a rough price guide.
As a rough price guide:
Re-roofing on a smaller roof with good access and simple roof design could be $18,000 – $20,000 + GST
Re-roofing a moderately sized roof with reasonable access and typical design could be $20,000 – $25,000 + GST
The above price guide includes insulation for the new roof sheeting.
If you would like a ballpark figure on a re-roofing job for your property then give us a call. We are more than happy to give information over the phone and for most straight forward jobs we can make a reasonably accurate estimate from online imagery. If you are happy with the online estimate figure we can then arrange to come out and inspect the site, discuss the re-roofing process in detail with the homeowner and issue a formal quote.
RE-ROOFING WITH SOLAR PANELS ALREADY INSTALLED
These days most roofs have solar panels installed. We are often asked what can be done when it comes to roof reroofing when a roof already has solar panels already installed. We work with several solar installers in Adelaide on a very regular basis. It is as simple as one phone call for us to have a solar system of any size removed and reinstalled after our work has completed.
For Tile roof reroofing and conversion to Colourbond roofing we need to use all new mounting components and solar panel rails. This is because the mounting components are specific to either Colourbond or Tile roofing. We generally arrange to have the solar panels removed in the week prior to us commencing the re-roofing process. We try to get them back on as soon as their respective piece of roof has been re-installed, often going back on before we have even left the site.
For re-roofing of an original metal roof the panels and rails must be removed but the original hardware can generally be reused. The solar guys always check the integrity of the solar panels themselves, making sure there has been no water damage or cell failure before going back on.

When re-roofing, we highly recommend lining the new roof with an Insulation blanket. It’s a great way of increasing the energy efficiency of old homes that were built prior to the 6 star energy rating system. With roof insulation blanket the thermal and acoustic performance of a roof system can be dramatically improved.
