Metal Roof Replacement
Usually most clients that call us about a roof replacement have had major damage done to their homes due to storms, tree falls or major structural damage (termites, ground movement, etc) or their roof is over 25-30 years and is in very bad condition.
Let’s not beat around the bush – replacing your roof is a big job and we realise this. That’s why we will always repair or fix any possible areas of a metal roof before we recommend a replacement. Sometimes we have the option of only replacing certain areas of the roof which is a good compromise if it’s a possibility.
What’s the cost of a metal roof replacement?
Great question! This is one of those questions where the answer is a little like “how long is a piece of string?”. The cost of replacing a roof will depend on a wide range of different factors. For example, the things we need to take into consideration are:-
- Your roof material and its availability (old metal roof materials may not be available therefore can’t be matched)
- How many square metres of metal roofing needs replacing
- The damage done to metal sheeting
- Any structural damage to beams and underlying support structures
- Extant of rust damage
- Insulation is also damaged from rain or storm damage
As you can appreciate there are many different factors that go into estimating a cost for a roof replacement so it’s almost impossible for us to give a rough ballpark figure to the question “what does it cost to replace my metal roof?”.
The only way you’re really going to know for certain how much a metal roof replacement is going to cost is to call a metal roofing contractor like us and get us out for an inspection and quote.

How long does it take to fully replace a metal roof?
Again this will depend on a variety of factors. How large is your home? What damage has occurred to the metal sheeting? Is it during storm season? Is there structural damage?
As you can appreciate a straightforward replacement will always be quicker than a project that incorporates some sort of structural damage. It’s worth noting here that removal of the roof and cleanup of waste etc is always included in our quotes for roof replacement.
Call us today and we can discuss all different aspects of your metal roof replacement, then come out and meet with you, inspect your roof and give you a quotation.
What happens if you’re replacing my roof and it rains?
Storm season in Brisbane is no doubt our busiest time for emergency roof repair and home roof replacement. When completing a metal roof replacement we constantly monitor weather patterns and keep up to date with projections from the Bureau of Meteorology.
If there’s the possibility of unforseen rain we take the necessary steps available to tarp up your roof and make it watertight to keep you home high and dry.
