Replacing a concrete tile Roof with metal, Colorbond or Zincalume roofing is a common practice among homeowners whose concrete tile roofs have reached the end of their life.
If you’re in this situation, you can choose to replace your tiled roof with a new Colorbond roof, available in many colors, or you can opt for a metallic Zincalume finish.
Replacing a concrete tile roof with a metal roof requires adherence to several Australian Building Standards. This is because the new metal roof will be significantly lighter than the original concrete tile roof. As a result, the roof timbers must be secured since a Colorbond or Zincalume roof weighs much less than concrete tiles. Brastin Roofing specializes in converting tile roofs to Metal roofs. You have the option to replace your old tile roof with metal roof from Australia’s top metal roofing suppliers.
When we replace your tile roof, we first remove the existing tile battens. These battens are not suitable for installing the new metal roof, so we replace them with new more suitable battens. We also upgrade the tie-down of your roof frame to the wall frame and provide an engineering certificate. Once the roof frame is ready, we suggest installing Insulation as an optional extra, followed by installing your new metal roof and accessories.
