What roofing companies consider when quoting
Colorbond roofing specialists consider a number of factors to determine the overall cost of a job, and these can include:
The size of your roof
This is an important thing that roofers consider when giving a quote. Companies usually charge on a per square metre basis for roofing installation jobs, so a larger roof area is naturally more expensive to install.
The type of Colorbond
There are different variants of Colorbond roofing available, and some are cheaper than the others. If your home is located in one of the coastal areas where salt usually sprays in the air, you might want to opt for a Colorbond roofing designed especially for that environment. This is usually more expensive than regular Colorbond roofs, but it can definitely serve its purpose. If budget is really a bit tight, you can go for Colorbond roofing with powder coating. It’s more affordable and adequate enough for homes.
Additional services required
When it comes to Colorbond roofing, a new installation is normally cheaper than replacing an existing roof. This is because re-roofing takes more work. Your chosen company will have to remove and dispose of the old roofing material prior to installing the new one. They are likely to charge you a higher fee for this.
