How Much Does a New Roof Cost in Cairns?
A new roof is often necessary when your current roof is old or in poor condition. Leave it too long, and dangerous leaks can occur and be more expensive to fix, especially if you also have to replace ceilings and redo electrical work. At Intrust Group, we’re the experts in roofing Cairns homeowners can trust for high quality, cost-effective roof installations. Below, we look at some factors that influence the cost of a new roof.
Type of Roof
The flatter the roof, the cheaper the installation generally is. A flat roof inherently takes up less area than a pitched roof. This means fewer materials are used, leading to a less expensive project overall. The roofing material you choose will also affect the cost.
As a rough guide in terms of overall cost, a new Colorbond roof costs between $20,000 to $25,000 on average for a standard size dwelling.
Wind Loadings, Fastenings and Other Features
Any additional features can also add to the costs. For example, wind loadings and fasteners may be required for high wind areas. Other features may include skylights, chimneys, specialised guttering systems and whirlybirds.
Accessibility also influences costs. If roofing contractors have to implement extra safety measures to access and complete the job, the costs will increase. Most residential roofs are fairly simple to access so this is usually more of a consideration for large commercial or industrial buildings. Naturally, the more floors or levels involved, the more complex the job becomes.
