Metal Roof Replacement Melbourne: Caulfield North

The Melbourne Roofing Client

ACR Roofing have recently completed another metal roof replacement in Melbourne for a Body Corporate, this time in Caulfield: a common two storey complex with a low lying roof structure that has minimal pitch, covering a number of units.

This particular Melbourne roofing project consists of an entire metal roof replacement to a block of flats. With many tenants within the building, we ensure to keep all updated of our scope of works. It takes careful planning and coordination skills, however our Melbourne roofers always get the job done! Our team excel in these particular re-roofing projects.

You don’t need to be a roofer to see from the before photos, the original roof is in terrible condition! As we only complete roof replacement projects we are the experts in this unique field, identifying all problems for the client and providing them with a scope of works that always solves the problem. In this case, an entire roof replacement.

Serious corrosion covered the entire original roof, and in some sections the rust has eaten away at the metal roof! Leading to exposure of the clips which hold the roof down. With minimal fall in the roof sheets, water has been able to pool over the years, adding to the corrosion. Previous trades have attempted to repair the roof but this is no longer an option!

So ACR Roofing proposed an entire roof replacement, the Owner corporation agreed, and roofing works began.

Body Corporate Roof Replacement

Due to the three story height of the building, we required a crane to load all materials onto the roof. Furthermore, we install safety rail around the perimeter of the live edge. Working in sections each day, removing and replacing ensuring the entire building is kept water tight at days end.

Insulation of blanket

We then install a new 60mm insulation blanket before laying the new roof. We installed all roofing materials in BlueScope Colorbond,  a new colour called Southerly.

Old metal roof replacements, in particular the old kliplok deck roof sheets, are an extremely physical exercise to remove and unclip each sheet. We years of experience, we know how to complete projects uninterrupted and safely, both for our staff and the public.

The entire Melbourne roof replacement project ran smoothly, and with no disruption to the tenants below. The end result looks great. Well done to our Melbourne roofers!
