WA’s Commercial Re-roof Specialists

Commercial Roof Replacement or New Roof Installation

All roofs are subject to wear and tear and therefore, possible replacement. A roof replacement is often needed once a roof has significant damages, impacted areas that are allowing water to leak through and no longer able to be fixed with minor repair work. Or when an owner is looking at modernising their commerical property.

A roof should be inspected annually to determine if any maintenance or repair work is required. Sometimes a roof is so extensively damaged, that a new roof replacement is the most cost-effective decision to make, rather than to repair individual areas of damage.

Colorbond vs. Tiled For a New Roof

Whilst in previous years tiled roofs have been the most popular choice, recently there has been a change for asset owners to transition from a tiled roof to a Colorbond roof.

BUSS Roof Plumbers have found that aesthetics plays a large role in the selection of a new roof, whether it be a Colorbond or tiled roof. Concrete tiled roofs are still a cost-effective way of recreating the appearance of the high-priced terracotta tiles often found in European areas. They are available in a range of colours that can easily compliment any building.

Colorbond roofs offer more of a clean lined look due to their crispness and angling of metal sheets. One of the major advantages of a Colorbond roof is the fact that it’s a significantly lighter weight option, making its water absorption, unlike tiles, to be minimal. Tiles have a tendency to absorb a percentage of rainwater before it runs down to the gutters and downpipes.

Another factor to consider when deciding on if a new roof will be Colorbond or tiled, is the future maintenance costs. Tiled roofs are more fragile and are more prone to cracks and leaks. They also have a faster deteriorations rate than Colorbond roofing. Colorbond Roofs are known for the rigorous testing in all different weathers to ensure strong durability and longevity.

Overall, it is more down to personal preference as to what would be best option between a tiled and Colorbond roof. However, there are significant advantages to opting for a Colorbond roof and this is why there has been a change in Perth towards this as a new roofing option.

Due to this, BUSS Roof Plumbers specialise in the installation of new Colorbond roof installation not tiled roof installation. Our team are able to provide individual tile repairs. However, should you be seeking a new roof installation, we will be able to assist in a metal Colorbond roof installation only.


    When to Consider a New Roof?

    A roof replacement in Perth can make a drastic improvement to your property and be a wise investment, especially when coming into winter months where the weather can have adverse effects on your roof. In time a roof’s functionality becomes lessened and efficiency levels decrease.

    Some common reasons as to why you may want to replace a roof or common signs of roofing problems that are beyond repair include:

    Aesthetics and Resell

    A roof replacement can make a property more visually appealing, more energy efficient and increase the value of an asset.

    Excessive Water Ingress & Leaks

    Once water is pooling and in excessive amounts on a roof, it often begins to seep in and cause water ingress problems. Multiple leaks can lead to a roof replacement rather than individual repairs. Leaks are a primary cause for any form of roof damage.

    Dipping and Sagging

     A dipping and sagging roof can be caused by framing issues, weakened or damaged by water and other materials.

    Exposure to Elements

    Natural elements such as debris build up, excessive leafage and other plantation are a common cause roof damage. Colorbond roofing, while a premium roofing choice, if not properly maintained, will rust faster than tile, especially in coastal areas

    Storm Damage

    Excessive rains and storms are a common cause of damage beyond standard repair. The winter months cause concern when rains are at their heaviest. Extensive damage can lead to roof replacement.

    Cracked Roof Tiles

    A new roof is sometimes the only repair option when there are an excessive number of cracks in roof tiles. It is common is for owners to transition from tile roofs to Colorbond. Tile roofs require more maintenance and repairs than Colorbond roofs.
