New Roof Extensions – Answers to Important Questions
Are you in the market for a new roof or roof extension in Sydney? Are you feeling stressed about the potential roof replacement costs involved? Southern Cross Roofing are Sydney’s roofing experts. We offer a plethora of options to make sure that you get the perfect roof for your taste, requirements, and budget.
It can be hard to decide whether or not it is time to get a new roof. Because we understand that most of our customers are not roofing experts, we have put together a small checklist about modern roofing in Sydney.
Do I Need a New Roof in My Sydney Home?
The first point to consider is the age of your roof. If your roof is looking like it was here before mankind then it may be a good idea to consider talking to us. Sadly, no roof will last forever. The older it becomes, it is more likely to cause damage to other parts of your home.
Visually checking the roof is a great way to identify its condition. It is important for homeowners to know what they are looking for when performing an ocular inspection. This can be difficult if you don’t have a wealth of knowledge but there are some obvious things you can notice. These include missing tiles, cracks, and missing cement work.
Another red flag is an obvious one–leaks. Do you find yourself constantly needing to get repairs done or putting a bucket beneath that annoying drip? Sometimes a simple repair is the answer, but sometimes it is not! If it is an ongoing issue, then it is likely that your roof is no longer in a position to protect your home from water damage. Don’t leave the issue until it becomes a really big problem!
Then again, it is not always a need that pushes the idea of a new roof. Sometimes a homeowner may just want a fresh, modern looking roof. Whatever the reason; Southern Cross Roofing is here to help.
How Much Does a New Roof or Roof Extension in Sydney Cost?
New roof and roof extension prices vary across different regions in Australia. Southern Cross Roofing quotes for each job depending on its exact requirements; labour, materials etc. This is to ensure that we do excessively charge our client’s, for work which we undertake.
Other factors that come into play:
- Roof materials: The type of material used has a big influence on the final price. For example; concrete roof tiles are cheaper than terracotta, slate is much more expensive than both. It is a misconception that Colorbond roofing is cheap; it can be even more expensive than terracotta.
- Roof extension/new roof requirements: Each job is unique in its own way and will have different requirements and challenges which need to be considered when a quote is being put together.
