Quoting for materials and labour. Now that we know how big the roof is by doing the measurements on step 1. This means that we also know how much materials will be needed.
We do this by calculating how much materials are needed per m2. For example, We need – 13 tiles per m2 – 3.4 Linear meter of battens per m2 and 3 lengths of ridge caps per meter and so on…
- We price the materials by letting our suppliers quote on materials.
- And then we also price for our labour costs.

Cause of Roof Leakage
There are 7 reasons that can cause roof leakage: 1. Broken tiles 2. chipped tiles 3. Broken tiles under the solar panels on the roof 4. Cracked ridge caps 5. Around the solar hot water system. 6. around Whirlybirds and flashing. 7. Around the valleys (wrongly cut valley tile pieces).
Repairing Leaking Roof
There are 7 reasons why your roof is leaking and there are only 4 ways of fixing that roof leakage:
1. By replacing all the broken and chipped tiles.
2. By pointing Around the solar hot water system By pointing: around Whirlybirds and flashing.
3. By re pointing the whole roof when there are Cracked ridge caps.
4. By Re-cutting the valley pieces.
When we come to repair your roof leakage We will take 1 roof tile and take it to the second-hand roof tiles yard so that we get the exact same tiles on your roof because all roof tiles have varieties of shapes and sizes.
Roof Replacement or Re-Roofing has exactly the same steps as putting on a new roof. Except the old tiles gotta be removed first before renewing of the roof. When removing the tiles off the old roof the owner always has 2 options
- By throwing away the roof tiles in the skip bin
- By saving the old tiles and selling them to a second-hand tiles yard.
When option a chosen then we will have the bin closer to the roof so that the roof tiling team can just through the tiles in the bin straight away from taking them off the roof.
But when option b chose, it takes longer because we have to use the elevator to get them from the roof to the ground making sure that the tile broken. The old battens are taken off and must go to the rubbish pile.
With Roofing extensions, this means when your family has run out of bedrooms and you want to add additional space to the property and then you may as well extent the roof also.
It has the same procedures as new roofing installation: except when you have to match the roofing gauges and get the same or matching to the existing roof tiles on your existing roof.
4 Reasons Why You Should Choose Tile Roof.
1. Tile Roofs can survive major weather conditions such as cyclone, storms or heavy wind. But tin roof can’t survive all of that.
2. Roof tiling has existed for over 2,000 years since Jesus was in this world before He went to back to Heaven. 3. Roof tiles are good even in hot or sunny weather. While tin roofs make the house hotter because it’s metal and it’s a heat conductor.
4. Every tile on your roof is important. If there is anything wrong with a tile, it can easily be replaced. While if there is anything wrong with a tin sheet, it is harder to replace.
The Bible Talks About Roof Tiling
(Luke 5:18-20 NIV)
Jesus Heals A Paralytic
18 Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. 19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.
20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
