Our Roofing Services
There are plenty of factors to consider when you’re considering repairing or weather-proofing your roof, especially if it’s a metal roof.
The benefits of a metal roof over a tile roof- a metal roof is lighter which means less stress on the structure of your home. A quality metal roof requires less maintenance than a tile roof over the years.
A metal roof is the strongest, most durable roof to withstand our harsh Australian elements. It’s worth considering the exposure your metal roof gets – rain, hail, sun during intense summer seasons and even seasonal strong spring winds. In Australia, your roof is exposed to more extreme weather conditions than elsewhere.
Depending on the amount of damage your roof has sustained, is a roof repair an option? Otherwise, a complete replacement may be the more viable, affordable solution in the long run. Organising a roof inspection by a professional roofing contractor is another consideration.
Regular inspections and maintenance will help keep your metal roof in the best condition to protect your home against the constant weather exposure.
Roofing Master can repair all metal, terracotta, cement and slate roofs.
We repair all roof types
Repairs can be very simple, sometimes extremely difficult or anywhere in between!
The first step in fixing a leaking roof is targeting what is causing the leak. This can sometimes take longer than actually carrying out the repair. Our team of roofing contractors are skilled at finding the issue.

Is Metal The Right Roof Material?
With a wide range of roofing materials to choose from, it’s worth taking time to research which is the best roof to suit your home from the profile of the roofing material, to the colour. Make sure you run through the options to find which product is the right one for your roof.
The benefits of metal roof include: longer lifespan; Colorbond steel has long been proven to withstand hail, rain, harsh winds and even bush fires for Australian homeowners. Tin, aluminum, steel metal roofs have the lowest maintenance costs, plus they’re 100% recyclable. After the lifespan of the roof ends, the metal can be recycled to produce brand new metal sheeting.
Picking the right materials
A good looking roof is an asset to anyone’s home and benefits your real estate valuation. Whether you decide to go with steel, aluminum, copper, stainless steel or alloy roofing, Zincalume or Colorbond or any of the other types of steel, keep in mind how well the new roof will compliment your home. Make sure you consider cost, durability, weight and compatibility as your indicators as to what’s best for your home.
Styles (profiles) of Metal Roofing
- Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated iron sheets have corrugated panels that tightly overlap and then screwed to the roof structure. Ideal for all housing, garage and shedding.
- Metal Shingles
Metal shingles are cast in the shape of metal panels, with the look of overlapping shingles, giving them a classic look. Depending on the architectural style of the house, there are a number of shingle style options t suit the style of the house.
- Hidden or Exposed Fasteners
This simply means the screws fastening the metal sheets are, or are not exposed. Roofs with hidden fasteners have the screws hidden away under the metal sheeting, which is held into place with metal clips. Roofing using hidden fasteners takes longer to install and certainly looks much better
- Mechanically Seamed Roof Panels
Most often used in commercial roofing settings, this type of roof features metal panels that are crimped and folded together with a water tight seam.
- Standing Seam Metal Roofs
These are the easiest to install as the panels have interlocking edges which makes the roof self sealing. Standing seam metal roofs are efficient and amongst the most recognisable roofing options.
Inspection from a trusted roofing specialist.
Now it’s time to get a reliable roofing contractor to do a detailed inspection on your roof, give you a quote of what repairs are needed and to advise you on whether the damages require repair, restoration or a complete replacement.
Removing the old roof
The next step in the metal roof repair job once the quote is accepted will be when the roofers start stripping away the old, existing roof and begin installing the new roofing materials. This is a good time for you to double-check whether your roofing contractor has checked for signs of rotten battens or water damage on the roof area before the new sheets are laid down.
Finalizing the job
After removing the old materials from your property and installing the new sheets, guttering and extra protective layers on your metal roof, it’s time for your roofing contractors to check their work to make sure every aspect is correct, watertight and sealed. That way you can enjoy your brand new metal roof without any mess left behind.
Congratulations! You now have a new metal roof that can last for years to come!
