Top Tips 

Our top 3 tips for keeping costs down while hunting for quotes are:



  1. KEEP IT SIMPLE – skip the accessories
  2. GO WITH ZINCALUME – it’s cheaper than Colorbond (see here for more information about the difference between Zincalume and Colorbond)
  3. DO IT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS – for a joint discount (just ask us when you book in your free roof replacement quote!)

This might seem like an obvious one, but something else to keep in mind is the old saying ‘prevention is better than a cure’ – in the case of roofs, that means being proactive about leaks and other potential hazards before they become big problems. Addressing issues now can save you hassle and money in the long run!
