Last week our team replaced a roof in the hail affected suburb of Woolloongabba on Brisbane's inner city southside. This Manor Red roof had obvious hail damage to the roof sheeting, cappings, flashings and whirly birds.
Manor Red is a great colour for heritage styled homes. Greens, creams, greys and white are often used with this colour scheme and look great for highset Queenslanders or similar styled homes. You can head over the the Colorbond website to see more options.
The photos below show the condition of the roof before - hail dents, worn coating and a roof that was at the end of its life.
Hail impacted roof sheeting needs to be replaced on your house roof. Why you might ask?
Your roof is your homes biggest asset - it keeps your home watertight and protected. Once hail has impacted your roof sheeting, signs such as dents and the loss of the top layer of paint are clear signs of damage. Dents can compromise the life of your metal roof. If notable dents have been caused, this allows for the possibly of water and dirt to pool in these dents and cause corrosion. Similarly, if you have a low-pitch metal roof where the sheets of metal overlap and hail damage has caused these laps to deform, water could become caught in these laps and also cause corrosion.
