Re-roofing is recommended when it is evident your roof is tired and obviously suffering from the ever changing weather conditions of New Zealand and in particular Auckland. Leaks may have appeared and this is the time to act to minimise major damage to your biggest asset.
At Roof Me we specialise in Metal to Metal re-roofing and Concrete to Metal using quality COLORSTEEL® and COLORCOTE® materials in assorted grades, profiles and colours. Let us use our expertise to help you make an informed decision on which products would best suit your roofing project.
Not only can re-roofing a house be visually pleasing it also provides your home with a dry healthy environment in which to dwell. Many older homes/roofs were fitted without underlay (roofing paper) and just the addition of this alone will achieve a warmer home. Wooden purlins that are part of the substrate structure to which the roofing material is attached can sometimes be rotten and need to be replaced before a new roof is fitted – although in most cases the purlins are fine. This may also a good time to insulate (which we can carry out and organise) because the roof space is easily accessed at this time. Re-roofing is a very simple process and carries extensive warranties by our suppliers.
There are many visual signs you yourself can spot before it’s too late:
Roof conversions are a very simple process that Roof Me carry out frequently. This involves removing concrete/clay tiles/metal decramastic tiles and replacing them with long run metal roofing. In most cases the purlins will need to be replaced – this is an easy job and ensures a secure hold for your new roof.
Long run comes in many different profiles and colour choices, Metal roofing is a very stylish looking roofing product that can make a drastic visual improvement to your home and is currently the most popular roofing product in Auckland – please check our Products Page for more information and see below for some roof conversion projects that we have carried out.
