Tile roofing has been very popular in the last 50 years of construction. But more and more people are now choosing metal for re roofing Brisbane and elsewhere. When your home is in need of re roofing, you’re going to have a big decision ahead of you. Should you stick with the current roofing material, or switch to a different type?
Tile roofing does last. We can see that on the many houses that still retain their original tile roofing. However, metal roofing lasts just as long, or longer. Additionally, metal roofing is a tougher product. Metal sheeting does not crack or corrode, and can be walked on, unlike tiles which can crack easily.
These days we are much more conscious of the environment, and how we can help protect the planet. Cement tiles are hard to deal with once they have been taken off a roof. They can be recycled, but the options are limited to gravel and aggregate. On the other hand, metal roofing sheets can be easily recycled into new metal products, prolonging the life of the steel.
The main reason that people choose metal roofing is its aesthetic value. Metal roofing can transform a home into so many different looks. Depending on the colour you choose, your house can go from traditional Australian cottage, to streamlined and modern, beachy and casual, or outback/federation style.
