What Our Customers Are Saying...

What an amazing job! Rob and the team stripped down the old tiles from our Brighton East home and replaced it with a colorbond matt finish steel roof. The workmanship is amazing and we can’t be happier with the finish!

Loraine Strizer – Brighton East

We were a little wary about roofers re-roofing our turn of the century home in Port Melbourne as we needed to have the council pass the works. Rob was well educated on these old homes and worked tirelessly to recreate the original look while giving a superior quality roof. Happy Days!

Icon Metal Roofing – Metal Roofing Services. 

They say that having a roof over your head is one of the basic needs that a human has. It signifies that we have shelter, safety, home, and security. So, why do so many homeowners skimp out on the actual roof? The roof provides protection from the elements, absorbs heat from the sun and manages energy efficiency, as well as so much more! That is why our team here at Icon Metal Roofing has made roofing our livelihoods. 

When it comes to building a home, you cannot go wrong with metal roofing. It offers a host of advantages over shingle or tile roofing, and sets itself apart from them in aesthetic as well. But, if you’re unsure about why you should consider metal roofing for your home or commercial property, we are going to dive into it all below. 

So, read on, and let’s discuss everything you need to know about metal roofing and how our team here at Icon Metal Roofing can help you!

  • The Advantages of Metal Roofing. 

Metal roofing is more of an umbrella term than an actual individual roofing material. You see, with metal roofing you are getting a variety of different material options that all come with their own pros and cons (more on this later). However, no matter which metal you choose, you are getting luxury and reliability. 

Metal roofing is known across the industry as the most durable and long lasting material to use for a home or property. It is stronger, lighter, and tougher than shingles or tiles in many ways. But the benefits don’t end there. With metal roofing you can expect to get a material that is:

  • Able to last up to 50+ years easily. 
  • Absolutely gorgeous and designed to fit any aesthetic or neighbourhood style. 
  • Low weight but exceptionally durable. 
  • Fire and wind resistant naturally. 
  • Very energy efficient. 
  • And so much more!

With metal roofing you are ditching a lot of the major drawbacks that you face with tiles and shingles. This has made metal an incredibly popular material for home and property roofing–even more so in recent years. 

  • The Different Types of Metal Roofing. 

The term ‘metal roofing’ likely sparks an image inside your mind. You may immediately think of hard steel roofing–like what you see on top of a small shed. Well, while that is technically metal roofing, it isn’t exactly what you would find on a new home or property. 

Metal roofing is actually incredibly luxurious as well as versatile. You can have a multitude of coloration’s, styles, and metal materials to choose from! Let’s look at the different metal options you will commonly find:

  • Steel.

Steel is among the most common metals used for metal roofing. It is an alloy of iron and various other elements, and provides a very durable and long lasting base for a metal roof. With steel you have your choice of galvanised steel, galvalume steel, and weathering steel. Each one offers its own set of pros and cons for you to weigh and choose from. 

With steel you are able to have the appearance of other metals replicated, and you get a more eco-friendly option as steel is more easily recycled when compared to other metals. Overall steel is a great value for money and performance. 

  • Copper. 

Copper might just be the very first material used to make a metal roof in the history of mankind. It is an ancient material that humans have been using for centuries. It lasts for an exceptionally long time and can be recycled easily. It is a gorgeous material that provides a luxurious look for any home. 

One downside to copper is that it is very soft, and can be dented very easily. This is a drawback that property owners in hail prone areas should always consider. Copper is also often the most expensive option in many cases.

  • Aluminum. 

Aluminium roofing is the most popular choice in coastal areas where salt content in the air causes rust and corrosion. Aluminium is very resistant to salt corrosion, and will hold up well for those coastal homes and villas. It is also very durable against other elements and provides a very gorgeous look to any home when treated and painted. 

 

The major drawback of aluminium is the cost. It’s most certainly not the cheapest metal to use for a roof. However, for many, that cost is more than justified when it comes to protection against rust in coastal climates. 

  • Zinc.

Zinc is an extremely durable metal that is also very malleable. This combination makes it desirable for commercial properties and businesses. It can withstand impressive amounts of damage, resists scratching very well, and can be formed and moulded into some incredible shapes. This all makes zinc a commercial property owners dream metal roofing material. 

The major issue with zinc is that it has a tendency to grow milky over time. This is often referred to as ‘chalking’. This happens naturally and can be cleaned, however that can be a pain for some. 

  • The Cost of Metal Roofing. 

One of the first questions that we get from inquiring clients is, ‘how much is this going to cost’? And that’s a valid question. However, it’s not one that can be answered very easily. This is because often the price of the roof will vary greatly based on size, material, project needs, etc,. This changes how we quote the price. 

In general, a basic repair on a metal roof will cost in the range of $200. The price of a brand new installation for an entire property will run around $20,000. This number can be lower or higher depending on the project–we will always need to do a personalised quote estimate!

This price for a new installation may seem staggering–we understand! After all, that’s almost the price of a new car! However, the real value with metal roofing comes from the fact that it lasts for an incredibly long time. In most cases more than 50 years, and in some cases over 100 years. This is essentially the only roof you will ever need in your lifetime! 

The pure durability and longevity of metal roofing sets it apart from the competing materials which need to be replaced after as little as 25 years in some cases. You are taking a much more long-term approach when you buy metal roofing.

  • Final Thoughts.
