Common Roofing Renovation Questions:
1. How does quoting work?
Free on-site quotes given for roof and gutter replacements for given quantities. We cant attend on site to give a quote to fix a leak. Leaks can some times be tricky to locate If investigating leaks for possible repair and patch work, fees start from $220. This allows us to gain access to the roof,conduct some testing and repair if it is an easy fix. If a larger body of work is required, we will submit a report and a fully itemized quote to conduct the works. You can use this report and quote to gain other prices from other companies to compare the quotes.
2. I got a cheap quote –what should I worry about?
A good roof installation will cope with any heavy downpour, without any leaks or over-flowing gutters. This can be hard for the un-trained eye to spot with a major storm, and by then it is too late. Some basic tell-tail signs include: misaligned screws, cuts between sheets that are not aligned, box gutters that are too small or have pooled water that does not drain.

An average size home takes about 1 week to have the roof replaced professionally.
4. What could happen if my roof is not installed correctly?
A poor installation could allow leaks. These might not be seen immediately, until rising damp is found, or other damage to the structure of your home. Even a poorly installed roof may cope with most average rain, but will fail whenthere is one of the all too regular Sydney storms.
5. Can we do any of the work?
Under Work, Health & Safety legislation we advise that the contractor conducts all work relating to working at heights.
6. What does an average roof replacement cost?
This will always depend on the specific site. Colourbond starts from $88 per square metre while gutters start from $88 per lineal metre. To get an accurate quote, please contact us for a free quote.

“We are happy to recommend STS Plumbing because they identified the cause of our roof leaks and gave us options.
We chose colorbond corrugated iron, because it gives us the best outcome, insulation, functional life and appearance.
STS Plumbing installed the light tubes, whirly birds and a ventilation exhaust that we required.
They came to replace the roof when they said they would and they did it in good time and in careful stages to avoid rain.
We are very satisfied with the work & product.”

“As a long term client of STS plumbing, I knew who I needed to call when I was faced with the complex task of replacing a large, custom built dome. Simon came to inspect the bespoke dome and was not fazed by the challenging task. The base structure had badly rusted due to a leak in the outer dome and both had to be carefully measured and replaced. The inner dome’s stained glass segments had to be carefully removed and set aside while the structure and outer dome were rectified. Simon was able to source custom materials for the job and install them with meticulous attention to detail. For such an unusual job, I was very impressed with STS Plumbing’s ability to complete the job accurately and to all the required specifications.”
