Case Study: Apex St Roof Replacement

Case Study: Apex St Roof Replacement

Your roof is the most important part of your home, making it even more essential to invest in keeping it in good condition. Our team recently completed a major roof replacement in Balmoral. Read on to see how we achieved such a great transformation.

Before and after of our roof replacement service at Apex Street, Balmoral.

Background

It was evident the roof was in poor condition due to water ingress, and in desperate need of some TLC. There is a myriad of causes for water ingress, often due to damaged walls and defective draining, allowing water to seep in. This can lead to a host of problems like water damage to both the inside and outside of your home, and damp plasterwork consequent to musty smells.

Water was found in numerous areas of this roof, so the most efficient option was to carry out a complete roof replacement. We allocated five team members due to the scale of the project and allowed a two-week timeframe.

The process

Although roof replacements vary from job to job, KWR roofing ensure the same basis steps are followed to perfectly replace a tired looking roof.

Firstly, we installed edge protection and safety harnesses to work safely on the roof, plus a tarp to safeguard waterproofing due to unpredictable weather. We always put safety first, and ensure extra precaution is taken to provide you with the best outcome.

As part of the replacement we supplied an Anticon blanket, which was installed directly under the Colourbond roof sheets. This minimises condensation from forming as well as improving the acoustic and thermal performance of the roof.

Next, downpipes and gutters were carefully selected to be tough, durable, and able to manage high volumes of water. It is vital you spend accordingly as this will lessen the likeliness of leaks, overflows, and other problems.

Finally, we removed all rubbish, and cleaned the space while ensuring to leave any landscaping intact from the re-roofing process. We recycled the old existing roof to ensure minimal wastage.

QBCC insurance is applied to all applicable works and we provided the owner with a Fluids Engineer Report.

With experience and the right skill set, the professionals at KWR Roofing can provide you with a cost-efficient and flawless roofing solution. 

Materials matter

For this roof replacement, we used a combination of high-quality materials. Corrugated roof and flashing were chosen from BlueScope for design and flexibility, as well as BHP Colourbond a long-lasting, fade resistant option unlikely to crack, peel or chip due to harsh Queensland weather conditions.

KWR Roofing use the highest-quality materials to ensure longevity of the roof.
