Roof repairs are an effective way to deal with minor problems like cracked tiles, slow leaks and small rust patches. If you’re seeing bigger problems, like significant leaks, water stains on the ceiling and crumbling pointing, you may be better off with a roof restoration or replacement.
It can be tempting to continue patching and repairing your roof as problems occur. But, it’s often more cost-effective to replace an old or damaged roof. A professional roof inspection can help you determine what the best course of action is and whether your roof needs repairs or replacement.
We typically cart away any debris that is related to your roof repairs or replacement. If your home has sustained major structural damage that generates lots of construction waste, you may be better off working with a demolition company.
It takes between 1-3 days to install a new roof on most homes. The process takes longer for larger properties, and it may be extended if we run into difficulties such as structural damage or bad weather. Because the process takes multiple days, we only remove the portions of the roof that we can replace in one day. This protects your home from unexpected weather and emergency situations.
It usually takes us 1 day to make minor repairs to your roof. Tasks like replacing cracked tiles or damaged Colorbond® sheets are relatively straightforward. It may take us several days to repair serious damage that occurs due to storms or fallen trees. These types of events tend to cause extensive water leaks and structural damage that aren’t as easy to rectify.

It costs $50 to $95 per square metre to replace a roof. The actual cost varies widely depending on things like:
- The size of your home
- The roofing material you choose (e.g. tiles vs Colorbond sheets)
- Underlying structural damage
- How many storeys your building is
- The complexity of the roof design
- Whether we need to match existing roof materials
The only way to get a reliable quote is to book a roof inspection with our team. An inspection will give us a chance to measure and assess your roof, check the site and look out for any special conditions. All of these factors play a role in your quote, and it means we’ll be able to give you an accurate estimate of how much the work will cost.
It’s all about being prepared! The Gutter and Roof Repairs team continually monitors the weather while we’re working on your roof installation. We will attempt to schedule your job on clear days wherever possible. If there is a chance of rain, we use tarps to weatherproof your home and prevent further damage.
Once we have started working on your roof, the only reason the project will be delayed is due to poor weather. We understand that delays are inconvenient, but it’s too dangerous for our teams to work in the rain, and new roofing materials need to be 100% dry during installation.
