When it comes to roofing, homeowners and businesses need solutions that they can rely on over the years to protect them from all the elements. Metal roofing is a great option for this, in part because of its renowned durability.

Why you should choose a metal roof in Brisbane
Metal is one of the most durable options for roofing available on the market. Compared to tiles that can be easily damaged, you never have to worry about damage to your roof from a strong storm – hail included.
Metal resists more than just heavy rains. Metals are naturally fire resistant, giving your structure an extra line of external defense. Insects, molds, and mildew are also deterred by metal surfaces, so you don’t have to worry about build up or infestation.
Here are a few more reasons why metal roof is a great option:
- They are energy efficient and can keep the heat out during the day to reduce your utility bill.
- They are eco-friendly and often made from recycled materials and recycled when replaced.
- They come in a number of styles and finishes that give your home or business a modern look.
- They are lightweight and don’t put any additional strain on your existing roof structure.
- They work great on roofs with even the most minimal pitch without worry of build up.
- They are extremely low maintenance and come with long warranties of at least 30 years.
Does it take long to install?
When you leave it to a licensed, professional contractor, your project can be completed in just a couple of days. Metal roofing comes in interlocking or overlapping panels in various lengths that are quick and easy to layout and install.
If you are having your existing roof replaced, it may take a bit longer for the old roof materials to be removed and the substructure prepared.
How to choose a professional for roofing in Brisbane
Start your search by narrowing down the field to only contractors with many, many years of direct experience. Then, confirm that anyone you are remotely considering is fully licensed and insured. You need to be confident that the people working on your home or business can be trusted to do the job right.
Here are additional questions you should ask a roofing contractor:
- Will your team be doing the work or do you use subcontractors?
- Can I speak with prior customers about their experience with you?
- Do you manage all of the required permits and permissions?
- What workmanship or additional warranties do you offer?
- How long will my particular roofing project take to complete?
- Do you handle removal of all waste or prior roofing materials?
What is the cost?
Pricing is dictated mostly by the size and material of the roof. From there, a contractor will be able to provide an estimate for the roofing hardware and panels as well as the labour needed for the installation. On average, it can cost between $7,000-10,000 to install a metal roof sized 140 square metres.
The table below can help guide your budgeting based on your needs. These figures include materials and labor combined.

How long will a metal roof last?
It is not uncommon for metal roofs to last near 60-70 years when professionally installed. Most metal roofing materials are warrantied for up to 30 years, which will also provide you coverage in case something comes up with a panel that needs repair.
In Queensland, all professional roofing contractors should provide a workmanship warranty up to six years. This further protects you against any cosmetic or structural defects that can happen as part of the installation.

Frequently asked questions about metal roofing in Brisbane
Can I install my own roof?
No – You will need a licensed contractor to take care of this for you. Many roofing jobs require permits and must be done to regulation or code.
Working on a roof can also present harm to you and the roofing material. Leave the task to teams that are highly experienced with this work. Improper installation could void any warranty you could have qualified for, not to mention the damage to your home from water seepage.
Is the metal roof loud?
Most of the time, you won’t hear a sound from your metal roof. However, when it rains, the roofing can amplify the sound. This is typically only an issue in areas that experience frequent or heavy rainfall, cyclones, or hailstorms. There are some options to insulate against the noise from the inside of the roof structure.
Do I need to worry about repairs or maintenance?
Metal roof is outstandingly durable. But just like any other material exposed to the elements, they can experience wear or damage in time. In many cases, you can have a roofing contractor evaluate your roof and make minor repairs without the need for a full replacement. Most of these issues stem from:
- Damage or denting from debris or structural impact in severe storms
- Corrosion or rust in areas near salt water or humid climate
- Creaking or warping from frequent temperature extremes
Can I install solar panels on a metal roof?
Absolutely. In fact, solar panels tend to perform better when installed over metal as opposed to tile or other materials. The metal roofing reflects light back to the panels to give them a higher efficiency and power output. It can also help insulate your home along with the solar panels to keep the heat out in the first place.
Is a metal roof going to attract lightning?
When we think of lightning and electricity, we think of metal as a great conductor. However, metal roofs do not attract lightning any more than other roofing materials. You can also have peace of mind that a metal roof is naturally noncombustible. Of course, you can speak with a lightning mitigation specialist if you are concerned or want to go the extra mile.
Can I stay in my house while you install my new metal roof?
While roofing work might be a bit noisy, you can certainly remain in your home throughout the project. The actual installation is non-invasive to your main living area.
