You may be looking for a stylish new roof for your home, but there are more important things to consider first. For example, where your house is located plays a huge factor in the style of roof you should choose. Is your area prone to weather conditions such as extreme heat or extreme colds? Are storms or heavy rainfall such as the La Nina event that most of us in Sydney experienced prominent? Is your house located near coastal areas? More specifically, are there trees surrounding your home or is your house isolated? Different roofs suit different homes, as some will withstand certain conditions better than others do.


The profile of your roof refers to the shape and style. This will be factored in by your roof’s pitch, as different angles may suit certain roof types only. Your profile will also be determined by the aesthetics of your house. Roofs come in various shapes and sizes, and your house may look differently with certain choices. Our experts will give their advice and help you to decide which roof will look the best on your house.


Everyone knows that colours improve the appearance of your home. The colour you choose should coordinate with the style of your house. Do you want your home to look sleek and stylish? The colour of your roof should also factor in your home’s energy efficiency. If you’re located in a cooler climate, darker colours can help absorb more heat. Otherwise, if you wish to cool down your home, choose a lighter colour to reflect sunlight. We can also provide you with a colorbond colour chart to help you pick and even suggest suitable colours for you.


Depending on your price range, Some roof types are more expensive than others, so it’s very important to decide how much you want to spend and let us know your budget prior. This isn’t just because of how much money you want to save. You should look into how affordable and reliable it is for you. There are some metal, tile or even slate roofs out there that are cheaper, but require more maintenance. This may cost you more money down the track, so spend wisely.
