If your roof has emerging issues, or if it was installed any earlier than the ’90s, you should consider replacing it. Water damage is often invisible, and usually very costly.

Roof Lifespan

All roofs need replacing eventually. 

A well looked-after roof can last for decades. Unfortunately, when we purchase an existing home, we inherit the maintenance – or lack of maintenance – done by previous owners.

In time, sealant perishes, nails lift with thermal expansion, minor scratches turn into rust patches, and any small installation imperfection is magnified with years of storms, salt, detritus, animals, and UV sun damage. 

If significant areas of your roof are damaged or corroded, the costs of repairing those areas quickly becomes comparable to the cost of properly re-roofing the entire thing. 


Re-roofing your home is a sound investment. Re-sale value goes up, and any potential buyers are assured that the home has been looked after. Using a high-quality roofing system such as COLORSTEEL® really does take years off the perceived age of a house. 

If you have no intention of selling in the future, that’s even more reason to re-roof. A quality installation of long-life roofing means that besides the occasional clean, you won’t have to think about your roof for decades, potentially. 

New Roofs VS. Re-Roofs

The major difference between a new roof and a re-roof is the removal of existing materials. This must be done safely, without damaging the underlying structure. 

In some cases we will replace the purlins (these are what we fix the roofing iron to). If your house has asbestos, don’t worry, we partner with a team of certified asbestos removers to ensure the re-roofing process doesn’t affect you or your family. Coldrick Roofing can easily convert your existing tile roof to long-run steel, too. 

We offer free quoting, so don’t hesitate to call Coldrick Roofing today.
