Have you decided you need a roof restoration? Started making enquiries and getting quotes?
Well you have probably found there are many and varied amounts quoted for what may seem like the same service.
In our many years of conducting roof restorations in Adelaide we have gathered a lot of feedback from past customers about other quotes or advice they may have received before engaging Oz-Roof to undertake their job. We have made the conclusion that the roof restoration and roof painting markets can really be broken into 3 segments.
1. The Big guys:
This post is not intending to name and shame anyone or organisation so we will hold short of stating any names but there are several larger companies in the roof restoration market. The companies that are national franchises or usually the ones running endless TV commercials we call “the big guys”. The big guys tend to all have a similar business model, a call centre, a team of sales people and a fleet of subcontractors or franchisees that actually perform the work. Typical prices for a roof restoration in Adelaide from “the big guys” are $15,000 – $18000. They tend to represent the least value to the customer as their prices are heavily inflated to cover their huge cost of overheads. They also tend to pay their roofing contractors and franchisees as little as possible to squeeze even more profits from each job. This tends to result in the person actually undertaking the roof restoration to rush and cut corners to get the job completed quickly and get to the next one.
2. The good guys:
Oz-Roof falls into the segment that we have titled “the good guys”. Being one of “the good guys”, Oz-Roof are the professional roof restoration company you should be dealing with. We are a small to medium businesses that are locally owned and operated. Due to our comparatively low overheads you can expect to find much better value. A typical roof restoration from Oz-Roof is usually around $6000 – $8000 depending on the job. We don’t have sales people and we pay our onsite workers good money which allows us to ensure we deliver a top quality job that is not rushed.
3. The Cheapies:
As the title may suggest these businesses (or probably individuals rather than businesses) will hand out the lowest quotes of all. We have all seen those signs on the side of the road “roofs painted $1850”. These guys may very well paint your roof but the questions that should be asked of them are; what type of paint will you use? Will you clean and prime the roof properly? How many coats will you apply? Will you mix water into the coating to save money? Do you have liability Insurance? Do I receive a 15 year warranty backed up by the manufacturer covering my new roof restoration? The answers you could expect to receive to the above questions when paying $1850 are probably obvious.

We also offer a multiple house discount so let your neighbours know when you are having your quote done as we may be able to do several roof restorations in your street at the same time and give everyone discount.
