5 Questions to Ask Regarding Installing a New Roof

“What things do I need to know before getting a new roof?” We’re here today to tackle roofing issues head-on and break it down into more manageable pieces. Let’s explore five essential questions that you need to ask yourself before installing new roofing on your property.

Which Roofing Material Will Last the Longest?

Longevity is a popular idea these days – it cannot escape being an issue in this article. Roofing comes in many materials, all of which have different characteristics. Different roofing materials will fare better in certain climates, and a roof’s lifespan is also heavily influenced by how much maintenance the owner is prepared to undertake. In Adelaide, the roofing material that fares best in terms of longevity is metal roofing. We supply Australian-made Colorbond steel roofing which typically lasts at least 50+ years, even with minimal upkeep.

How Much Upkeep Am I Willing to Do?

If you’re a homeowner who likes to spend their time relaxing and sitting in the garden drinking coffee, then you should seriously consider how much maintenance time you’re prepared to dedicate to your roofing.
Roofing materials such as slate and clay tiles typically require higher levels of maintenance than other types such as metal and asphalt. You’ll need to consider that while any material you choose will probably look suitable for a few years, without proper maintenance, it can quickly descend into a very haggard, old-looking roof. Steel roofing is the ideal choice for folks who are keen on keeping maintenance time to a minimum.

What Kind of Appearance Am I After?

The look of your home is critical; it’s crucial to nail the aesthetic appeal of our homes.

Slate is a common choice which can look well in certain circumstances, but it ties your hands in terms of personalisation. Colorbond Steel, on the other hand, comes in over 20 colour shades and gives you the freedom to put your creative touch on your property. With matching guttering, your house will take on a new lease in life.

Will My Home Be Left in a Mess?

There are countless numbers of tradesmen who when undertaking a job, walk across your new carpet with mucky boots; they’ll leave building materials scattered across your front yard; they’ll leave nearly-empty paper cups dispersed about the place.

At Old Port Roofing, we make sure that we leave your home just as we found it. That means each day while we’re installing your roofing, you can enjoy a clean and tidy space at home – when we’re finished, we’ll take all of our tools and material with us too so that the only trace of us being there is your spectacularly beautiful new roof!
