Frequently Asked Questions

Why it's still cold inside the house, even if you have installed high quality insulation product?
Because it is not only important how good is the insulation product, but also where it is installed and that you heat or cool your house internally any way. Most people think that it is enough to have their ceiling insulated… But, they don’t realise how much waste of greenhouse gases (and hence their money) is leaking through the roof. If the roof is insulated, the whole roof space (i.e. space between the roof and the ceiling) becomes an additional insulating air pocket.
Should scratches on the steel roof be touched up?
Absolutely Not! Minor scratches, especially along the ridges, are common and normal industry standard. They are not visible from the ground. Touching up minor scratches will cause damage to the roof sheet and shorten its lifespan. If the scratches are very bad and highly visible from the ground, the roof sheet should be replaced with a new one. However, we will always touch up all rivets in the gutters.
Does coated steel last longer?
Yes (in my opinion)… It is similar to a permapine pergola which will last longer if it is painted. However, Blue Scope Steel doesn’t extend its warranty for coated steel.
How do you 'bushfire' proof the roof area?
This can be done by using sisalation and/or an insulation blanket under the whole roof, using special glass for skylights and using bronze flywire to any penetrations (e.g. rotary vents).
Which gutter guard is the best?
Well, there are quite a few good gutter guards available on the market. However, the best result is achieved by creating an easy to maintain gutter system, and by cleaning it at regular intervals.
