Last week we completed a roof replacement in Zincalume roof sheeting which is silver in colour. Zincalume is a popular colour choice for heritage and QlDer styled homes.
The roof of this home was hail dented from the November 2014 hail storm that hit Brisbane and this roof was replaced under insurance.

Looking at the photos below you can clearly see the fire hazard. This is not always visible from the ground where you stand though - please ensure you are regularly blowing the leaves out of your gutter and roof regularly. They are extremely flammable and one single ember can easily catch alight in dry dead leaves.
A well prepared home is more likely to survive a bush fire.
Even if your plan is to leave early, the more you prepare your home, the more likely it will survive a bush fire or ember attack. A well prepared home can also be easier for you or firefighters to defend, and is less likely to put your neighbours' homes at risk. A well prepared home will also give you more protection if a fire threatens suddenly and you cannot leave.
Here are some basic maintenance tips to prepare your property and roof:
Tiled roofs require regular maintenance. We recommend having your roof inspected every 12 months to ensure the following:
- ridge capping mortar is not cracked or deteriorated
- there are no broken tiles
- valleys and gutters are free of leaf litter and debris
We recently attended a home in Benowa to carry out some tile repair works, as in recent storm activity the roof had been leaking, causing significant internal ceiling damage. We undertook the following works:
- replacing 6x broken Monier 100 patterned tiles
- reinstalling a poorly installed whirlybird
- disconnecting the tile clips in the affected area, to also prevent them from leaking
- removing poorly installed Valley seal and installing new
- repointed all ridge capping as the existing mortar had deteriorated
You can see some of our progress and works below:
You can see on this roof, that the tiles had been previously painted and it is peeling away. This can be a cause of a roof leak - peeling paint. The paint can flake and cause water to trace into the roof cavity, by blocking valleys, gutters and more. We ha also recommended to this owner to have the roof high pressure cleaned to avoid this issue.
