Re-roofing Perth for 30 Years: The Difference a New Roof Can Make
…outstanding in skill, knowledge, workmanship and attitude. We know it was a difficult job and we are absolutely delighted with the result. We would happily recommend this team to anyone needing a new roof.
Is your roof is leaking? Ridge caps cracking? Maybe you just want to give your tired old house a practical and value-enhancing face-lift? Just call The Doc. We can remove your old tile, iron, decramastic or asbestos roof and replace it with a new, light-weight corrugated Colorbond® or Zincalume® roof in just a few days. There are many advantages to re-roofing.
- A longer lasting home. The biggest problem with old cement and clay roofing tiles is that they are extremely heavy. The average tile-roof home has anywhere from 10-30 tonnes of tiles sitting on the roof. This excess weight can often cause cracks to the walls of the house, and sags or dips in the gutters or roof line.
- A new BluescopeLysaght Corrugated Colorbond® or Zincalume® roof will be 15-20 times lighter than the old tiles, stopping the weight-damage immediately.
- Independent BluescopeLysaght product warranty of 20 years, plus The Roof & Wall Doctor’s no leak guarantee.
- Hear the rain on your roof again, and take advantage of the rainwater catchment. Useful in cities, but absolutely vital in rural areas, enjoy the benefits of chemically inert, fresh drinking water caught and delivered by your brand new Australian made Colorbond® or Zincalume® roofing.
The Top Re-Roofing Extras
Once the old tiles or iron have been removed many of our Perth re-roofing clients take the opportunity to have some of the following options installed:
Insulation: Building Blanket Insulation (commonly referred to as Anticon) can be fitted between the new steel purlins and roof sheeting to keep your house cool in summer and warm in winter. Your savings on energy costs means it can pay for itself within a few months.
Skylights: Bring the warmth and brightness of natural light into your home without the heat.
Ventilation: A simple way of boosting air circulation and decreasing interior humidity, ventilation is almost a must-have in the Australian climate. Choose from traditional Whirlybirds or a streamlined ridge ventilator such as an E-Vent.
Our Re-Roofing Process
When you call for your obligation-free quote, it is the owner of The Roof & Wall Doctor you will meet on site, not a salesperson. That is 34 years of hands-on experience and expert advice in the industry, so give us a call when you are comparing options.
Most roof replacements in Western Australia require a Building Permit from the local Permit Authority, Council or Shire. This is the first step towards your new roof, and The Roof & Wall Doctor will handle all the paperwork and lodge on your behalf.
When we actually get started, the first step is to remove and dispose of all the old tiles, iron or asbestos. We then replace the old tile battens with new steel purlins. At this stage, we can also replace gutters and downpipes. With the purlins in, it is time to install building blanket insulation where applicable, and plan for skylights and ventilation.
As a Registered Building Company we then ensure that we install the appropriate Tie Downs to tie the existing roof structure to the walls, all according to a Structural Engineer’s specifications. The type of Tie Downs used will vary according to the type of walls you have. Your new corrugated Colorbond® or Zincalume® roof sheets are then laid and secured with Climaseal 50mm Tek screws.
Once your new roof is installed we clean the entire site, removing all rubbish and debris.
We are fully certified and licensed to carry out any Perth re-roofing job. We have 34 years of experience and an immense satisfaction rate across over 4000 jobs.
