Replacing an awning roof to stop roof leaks
This week we completed some roofing works at Oxenford on the Northern end of the Gold Coast.
The issue with this roof is that there was a gutter between the main house roof and the new awning roof. The gutter would fill up with water and backflow into the roof cavity in heavy rain, making a lot of internal damage. The roof sheets on the awning were Corrugated Colorbond and being a roof with minimal pitch, this was also hindering the water from running off the roof sheets, causing internal water damage.
The solution was to install new Trimclad sheeting which Metroll designs specifically for roofs with minimal pitch, as it allows more water run off. We also removed the gutter, replacing it with custom made flashings, so the water will now flow over the flashings and onto the Trimclad sheeting and off the edge of the roof - minimising and risk of water entering the roof cavity!
The colour of this roof is Colorbond's Cottage Green, Colorbond has also recently released six new colours which you can view here. If you have a metal roof and are experiencing roof leaks or any issues, call us today for a free roof inspection and assessment.
