Types of Roofs & Roof Repairs

Today, there are a number of roofing materials- some of them have been around for centuries while others are considerably new entrants into this space. Regardless of the type of roofing material you choose, you want to be sure it will give you years of trouble-free service. Installing a roof represents a major investment and its best to conduct some research before you decide what roof you will install in your home. Let’s take a look at the different types of roofing materials available:

  • Shingles – This type of roofing has been used for homes across the country for a number of decades now. These are available in metal, slate, terracotta, synthetic polymers, asphalt and wood. Most of these roofing materials are time tested and last for decades
  • Metal – This material is being increasingly used for roofing in modern homes across Australia. When people think of replacing their old and worn out roof; they opt for metal roofing.  Colorbond Steel and Zincalume are two very popular metal roofing materials
  • Terracotta tiles- This is a classic roofing material that is available in a variety of designs and styling. The tiles are strong and durable and don’t get discoloured either.
  • Concrete- This material is also quite popular and is cheaper than most of the other options. Concrete roofing can be in the form of tiles or slabs.
