Tile & Metal Roof Repairs
Tile and metal roofs are two of the most popular roofing materials in Australian homes and businesses due to their durability and low maintenance requirements. However, general wear and tear, harsh weather conditions and other external factors can all take their toll on the condition of your roof, so you might need to hire the services of a roofing repair specialist like Stormguard Roofing to get your roof back to optimum condition.
At Stormguard Roofing, we have over 20 years of experience in repairing both tile and metal roofs, so if your roof is looking a little worse for wear, all you have to do is give us a call.
What Types of Issues Lead to Roof Repairs?
If you’ve spotted discolouration in your ceiling or water dripping from a bulge, water is likely collecting on the other side. As soon as you spot a leak, it’s essential to take action immediately to prevent your home from sustaining further damage.
If you think that you can identify where the leak is coming from, cover the surface with a large tarp before calling a roofing repair specialist like the team at Stormguard Roofing. If your roof is leaking due to harsh weather conditions, we will not be able to repair the roof properly until the rain has stopped, so the tarp should minimise the damage until we can fix the issue.
Gutters play a crucial role in making sure that water is vetted away from your home. However, if your gutters are not maintained properly and become clogged with debris (dirt, leaves, etc.), the gutter can start leaking and causing roof water to overflow.
When water accumulates around the roof of your home, this can cause rotting damage and mould, and can even cause your gutter to fall off your roof entirely. Thankfully, the team at Stormguard Roofing is here to carry out any necessary repairs and prevent further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a reroof and a new roof?
A brand new roof involves replacing every element while reroofing updates or replaces what you already have and may involve retaining existing components. There are two kinds of reroofing, overlay and tear off, and both have their benefits and advantages.
Overlay roof replacement involves putting shingles on top of your existing roofing system. The good thing about this type of roof replacement is that it is less costly and takes less time to complete. However, this reroofing method can only be used on roofs that have not already been overlayed.
Roofing companies often use the tear-off method to replace your roof to install a new one. A complete reroofing will repair any underlying damage or leaks in your roof, and it will last longer than an overlay, all while increasing your home’s resale value.
How long does a reroof last?
This depends on whether you have had an overlay or tear off the project and the type of materials used. Slate is the most durable material and can last up to 200 years before replacement is required.
Copper and zinc are also solid materials and can last up to a century. Aluminium, terracotta and concrete materials will last up to 50 years, while asphalt will give you up to 25 years of life. Wood and shake materials can last up to 20 years but will require a lot of maintenance during that time.
When should you reroof?
You can use the above timeframes to gauge when a roof might be reaching its end of life, but there are also symptoms to look out for. For example, if you are experiencing water damage in your home, have problems with moss and fungi or the roof is bowed or sagging, it is a reasonably safe bet that it is time for a replacement.
The shingles themselves might be curling or buckling (or missing altogether). While these can be replaced individually, you can be pretty confident the other shingles are likely to fail soon as well. Of course, this also applies to any supporting structures like the flashing, guttering or fascia.
If you have noticed any of the above problems with your roof, it is advised that you call in a professional to inspect it and determine whether repairs or replacement is required.
How long does it take to tear off and replace a roof?
This will depend on the property, the materials used and the weather conditions. In some instances, same-day replacement is possible, but you should usually budget for the entire process to take up to three days (weather permitting).
