What Does Roof Replacement Involve?
Roof replacement involves installing a brand new roof. This can be done either on top of the existing one or by completely removing the existing one. We start by thoroughly assessing the roof and building to identify what the most effective solution is for you. Safety is paramount for us, so before beginning any roof replacement work we make sure the entire work area is clear and safe.
For total replacements, we strip away the tiles and metal flashes that surround vents and the chimney. If your roof has older battens we replace these with new steel ones. We lay insulation and then replace the tiles or other roofing elements to give you a top-quality new roof.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often do roofs need replacing?
Most roofs have a 20-30 year lifespan but this is highly variable depending on how it was installed, its material and the conditions it has withstood. A poorly constructed roof or one that has suffered from a storm can last for less than this if not restored, whereas a good quality roof that has been well maintained could see up to 40 or even 50 years. If you need a replacement, Stormguard Roofing will provide the highest quality service that will ensure your roof exceeds its life expectancy with minimal maintenance costs.
What is the best roof material?
In terms of longevity, metal roofing is probably the best option, as it is known to last for up to 100 years. It can endure the hot Sunshine Coast weather as well as withstand storms and rainfall while remaining highly insulating and fire-safe. It is also relatively cheap to maintain. However, it may not be the best option for you if it doesn’t fit your aesthetic goals and it can be more expensive than tiles. For advice about which type of roofing would best fit you, contact us today by calling 07 5499 7500 and we will be happy to talk through the options available, their benefits and pricing.
Do I need a roof replacement, repair or restoration?
These three options for your roof may seem too similar to distinguish between, but there are some easy guiding factors. For a small, isolated area of damage, a simple roof repair is in order. If your roof has lots of damage and is old, and repeatedly encounters problems, a replacement is likely to be your most cost-effective option. But, if your roof is looking worse for wear but still has life left, you may opt for a cheaper restoration process that doesn’t replace it entirely, but fixes glaring issues and makes it look almost as new. We offer all of these services at affordable prices and can give you advice on the best choice.
