Decromastic roofs are metal sheets that are manufactured to look like roof tiles. They are notorious for leaking and over time causing issues and damage to your home. We recommend to replace a decormastic roof with a Colorbond roof in most cases, you can read more about decromastic roofs here. If you want to see a replacement of a decromastic roof from start to finish click here to see a job we recently undertook at Eagle Heights in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
This week we undertook a roof replacement on a decromstic roof on the Gold Coast. The roof was initially metal and new battens and decromastic sheets had been laid over the top many years ago. This was common but bad practice in previous times, meaning we had to remove two roofs to then relay it with Colorbond steel.
You can see in the progress photos below the existing decromastic roof - removing the roof sheets to reveal battens and an iron roof underneath - we then laid new metal battens and sarking before installing the Colorbond roof sheets. The owner also changed the colour of the roof, choosing Ironstone from the Colorbond range which updated the home and gave it a more modern feel. You can read more about updating your homes street appeal and choosing a new roof colour here on our website.
We also replaced the guttering on the home and downpipes, so that the roof and gutters are now all new and comply with today's standards and best practice.
