If you’ve decided to replace your old roof, the next step is deciding exactly how you want it to look. Hiring a qualified team of experts like Brastin Roofing is the best starting point to get some ideas. You’ll need to consider the roofing material you’d prefer, and also the colour options. But above all, it’s likely that you have a specific budget in mind for your roof replacement. So, what can you expect it to cost?
Ultimately, the material you chose will have a large bearing on the cost. Bearing in mind that each roof is different, there are a few different ways to go. For this exercise, we’ll look at the cost of Colorbond® metal roofing because it’s by far the most popular modern choice.
- Replacing old metal roofing with Colorbond®: Between $6,000 -$10,000
- Removal of an asbestos roof in favour of Colorbond®: $15,000 – $20,000
- Removing a tiled roof and adding Colorbond® roofing: Approx $20,000
The size and shape are two other contributing factors, but we’ll go more into the pricing by size a little later on. It’s important to remember that the pitch and design of your roof will play a part in determining the overall cost. The more complex your roof, the more labour is required to complete the job.
