Expert Tips

Reduce rain noise

A metal roof can be a stylish and low-maintenance addition to your home, and contrary to popular belief, it needn’t be noisy.  Just have a chat with your local metal roofing expert and they’ll be able to install the right type of insulation to dampen the noise on your roof when it’s raining.



Protect your home

Always keep an eye on your gutters and downpipes. They are designed to divert large volumes of water away from your home and prevent water damage. If you can see water damage, bubbling paint or rust spots it’s time to get them repaired or replaced.



Don't lose your investment

A metal roof should last around 50 years, but if it isn’t professionally installed, the fastenings might not work as they should and it could cost you a lot of money in repairs over time. This is why you should always hire an honest and reliable metal roofing and guttering business to install your new metal roof. They will use their skills and experience to make sure everything is installed to a high standard, making sure that your roof will last the distance.



Add value to your home

One of the first things people see when they drive past your house is your roof. If you are thinking of selling your home, the last thing people want to see is an old, worn-out roof as this could be a sign that the rest of the home isn’t cared-for. A stylish, functional and low-maintenance new metal roof will do wonders for your kerb appeal and will improve the value of your home.



Small metal roof leak - big problem

If you suspect that your metal roof is leaking, it’s best to sort it out straight away, however small. Any water leakage into your home will be damaging and it can only get worse over time. Call your metal roofing and guttering expert to find the source of the leak and fix it, before it turns into a major, expensive disaster.



Don’t DIY downpipes
Installing your own downpipes may seem like an easy DIY job, but major problems can occur when downpipes have not been properly installed. This can result in flooding, or not taking water far enough away from your home which can cause significant damage to your foundations.



Get a ‘green’ roof
A metal roof not only looks great and lasts for around 50 years, it is also good for the environment. Recycled metal is now standard in all new metal roofs from anywhere between 25%-95%. It can also be recycled again when it reaches the end of its life, making it an environmentally-sound choice for your home.



Metal roofing for year-round comfort
Metal roofing is great in all weathers. In summer they reflect heat which means less air-conditioning and lower electricity bills. In winter, a professionally installed metal roof can withstand wind gusts of up to 200 kilometres an hour, keeping you and your family safe inside.
