Your Metal Roofing Experts On The Gold Coast

Your metal roof is an important part of your home. Left unchecked and unmaintained, it can cost you big time in the long run. Prevention is definitely key when it comes to protecting your ceiling space and home since, over time, an unmaintained roof can begin leaking through flashings, old screws and untreated rust spots. You might not even notice these issues at first, at least until the next heavy downpour or when mould starts forming on your ceiling due to moisture.

We provide residential and commercial roofing services; no job is too big or too small. For a trusted, reliable service, time and again, choose A. I. Guttering & Roofing is your roofing contractor.

Do You Need New Metal Roofing?

All parts of our buildings age at different rates, and roofs are no exception. While most roofs are designed to last 40-70 years (or more), the elements can wreak havoc on your metal roofing sheets. This can cause different spots to age more quickly or break down the longevity of the overall roofing system.

One of the first and most obvious tell-tale signs that you need a new roof is leaks. If water is getting through the protective layer of your roof and into your home, you need to call out for roofing contractors. At the minimum, you’ll need a repair. They may diagnose the issue by an inspection as an older or outdated roof beyond repair or more cost-effective to replace. Other signs of a roof that might need to be replaced include:

  • Loose panels
  • Mould and moss growth
  • Water damage in the home
  • Damaged flashing
  • Rusted nails, screws, and finishings
  • Sagging roof lines
  • Rotting underlay
  • Ridges in the roofline
  • Cracked roofing material
  • Staining on interior ceiling and walls
  • Higher energy bills
  • Visible light in your attic

How Long Does It Take To Install A New Roof?

Thankfully, the process of replacing and installing a new roof is typically not a long one. Of course, a few factors affect the length of the process, including how well the weather cooperates with the project. Assuming sunny skies (which Brisbane and the Gold Coast often bring), most roof installations and reroofing take just 2-3 days to complete. This includes everything from removing the existing material and disposing of it properly to installing the new material with proper vapour barriers in place.

There are a few other factors that can affect how long the Gold Coast roofing job takes, aside from Mother Nature. For example, if the substructure of the roof has been damaged by water or the elements, it could take some time for the project to replace it properly. In addition, old roofs that are made with asbestos need to be properly remediated. The size of the roof also comes into play. If you have a smaller home, your contractor may be able to complete the work in less time.


What Will It Cost?

Cost is going to vary depending on a few factors, most notably the size of the roof. The bigger the roof, the more material you will need to secure and cover it adequately.

Of course, the cost also comes down to the type of quality roofing you choose. Metal roofs are among the most durable and popular choices on the Gold Coast, but several options are available. Among the most common is Colorbond roofing, a coated steel option that comes in various colours and is applied with special primers to ensure the integrity of the colour and the roof panels. Colorbond has an average cost of $50 – $80 per square metre, from anywhere from $9,000 to $15,000 for the average 185m2 home.

Other options and their prices include:

Material Cost per Square Metre
Colorbond $50 – $60
Copper $170 – $180
Aluminium $50 – $70
Corrugated Steel $50 – $60

Note that these costs are for the material only. You’ll also have to pay to install it, which can fall between $50 – $80 per hour here on the Gold Coast. Make sure that any quote you receive from a contractor in the roofing industry for roof installation includes all of the costs for the project, from material to waste disposal to installation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofing

Will metal sheeting be too heavy for my roof?

Not at all. Metal sheeting is a relatively lightweight material that remains resistant to the weather. It’s typically lighter weight than roof tiles and provides better thermal protection and overlaps to ensure a tight seal for your roof.

Do I really need to replace my roof?

It might come down to the cost of whether it makes sense for you to replace the roof or continue to repair it. The best route is to ask for an estimate for both projects and compare what makes sense for you financially. Keep in mind that an older roof with less structural integrity will continue to have issues, so your repairs might not be the last.

Is metal roofing energy-efficient?

With a properly insulated roof, you won’t have to worry about swings in temperature with a metal roof in place. A metal roof also helps to trap heat in the winter and keep your home cool during hotter months, making it a great insulator. This, in turn, can help you cut down on your energy bills by running your air-con or heating less often.

How much maintenance will a metal roof require?

Near to none. Metal sheeting can last anywhere between 50-70 years or more with almost no attention required. When installed properly, you shouldn’t have to worry about rust, leaks, or degradation of the panels. Metal sheeting is also much more durable than other roofing materials, such as tiles or shingles, and is unlikely to crack from swings in temperature or impact during inclement weather.
