That is exactly what Total Roofing and Cladding does. After we’re done, you won’t have to worry about your roof for the rest of your life.

A Solid Roof Replacement Process
Roof replacements are a large project for us, but not for everyone. At Total, we specialise in roof replacement, so we have the process down to a predictable procedure, which makes our quality predictable, we can rely on our team to produce the same top quality outcomes every time. All of the effort goes into the frame and preparation; replacing Colorbond sheets is simple. If we’re replacing an existing corrugated roof, we’ll want to make sure the batten spacing is correct and the roof is properly secured; just because it hasn’t blown off before doesn’t mean it won’t in the future. It’s simple to tie down a roof: 1mm hoop iron over the trusses/rafters at the external wall top plates and 40mm tech screws at the ridge/hip rafters; simple, but not everyone does it. The only opportunity to address evident symptoms of a wave in the roof, signalling that the structure has moved over time, is when the roof is stripped and before the new roof is put. We simply lay a string line across the surface and pack out the rafters with structural timber when a roof has that wave effect; it’s simple, but not every builder is ready to do it.

Colorbond and Zincalume are two of our favourite metal roof alloys. Colorbond is a pre-treated corrosion-resistant steel alloy that comes in 22 distinct colors and may be mixed and matched for fascia, down pipes, and gutters. All of the colors are thermally efficient, meaning they reflect and dissipate heat well.
Zincalume is a composite material made up of steel, zinc, and aluminum that has been treated with a scratch-resistant coating throughout the manufacturing process. All Zincalume products have a maximum 36-year warranty, with various warranties offered specific waterfront situations, according to the Australian manufacturer of both alloys.
It can be difficult to choose the correct color for your home and metal roof, which is why Colorbond offers five different color groups: Contemporary, Matt finish, Classic, Ultra, and, of course, Fencing colors.
