Slate, copper and tile roofs can last more than 50 years. Homeowners with wood shake roofs should expect them to last about 30 years, while fiber cement shingles last about 25 years and asphalt shingle/composition roofs last about 20 years, the NAHB found. Climate and weather conditions, such as snow, hail and hurricanes, can cut the life span of all types of roofs.

At Perth Roof Replacements once it’s fixed we also offer a 10 year guarantee!

 

Both Zincalume® and Colorbond® are Registered Trade Marks of BluescopeLysaght Steel and are manufactured here in Australia. Zincalume® is the modern equivalent of galvanized iron with the same silver finish, only longer lasting and much lighter. It is steel coated in a zinc/aluminium/magnesium alloy making it durable, strong and corrosion resistant.

Colorbond® is Zincalume steel with an adhesive, primer and a high gloss colour layer baked onto it. There are over 20 colours to choose from. Both come with BluescopeLysaght’s product warranty and Perth Roof no leak guarantee.

Homeowners insurance policy covers the replacement of a roof, regardless of age, only if it is the result of an act of nature. Roofs that have exceeded their intended life span are not eligible for replacement because they fall under the general maintenance responsibility of the homeowner.

Regardless of what the circumstances are Perth Roof Replacements is here to help.

If your re-roof is over $20,000 (inc. GST), then the law requires it be carried out by a Registered Builder. If it is not, the work is illegal. A Registered Builder has been examined, in theory and practice, by the Building Commission of Western Australia, and is able to provide all the necessary insurances which protect you from default by the builder for a period of 6 years after completion, bringing compete peace of mind. But even if the re-roof of your home is less than $20,000, why compromise on quality and expertise?

Western Australian law states that re-roofing must be approved by your local council. This means submitting a Building Permit Application or risking fines. Nobody likes struggling with paperwork and plans, not to mention finding a Structural Engineer to provide a Tie Down detail! But you don’t have to worry because Perth Roof coordinates all the necessary paperwork and lodges the application on your behalf. It just doesn’t get any simpler than that.
