Roof Flashing

FLASH….AH-AH, SAVIOUR OF YOUR ROOF!

August, the last month of Winter.

By this point of the rainy season, you would likely be aware of any rainwater that is leaking through your roof. This could be occurring due to one or more of several different penetrations in your roof. The likely solution to this? Custom made roof flashing.

Roof flashing are thin, flat sheet metal products, generally made of folded COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel, designed and installed to redirect water from weaknesses in your structure to your rainwater system i.e. your guttering.

These weaknesses in your structure can include holes in your roofs surface for elements such as chimneys, skylights, flues, and vents.   Weaknesses also occur in joins between roofs and gutters, walls and window and door frames.

All the above examples may not be sealable with sealants alone, and may require flashing, specifically designed, and installed at strategic points in the roof to create a more weather resistant structure.

By far the most common material used for flashing is sheet metal particularly COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel.  COLORBOND® Steel Flashing and ZINCALUME® Steel Flashing can be customized in shape to fit within the structure of the roof, while still being rigid enough to provide an impervious barrier to rainwater.

Given that no two roofs are exactly alike, custom made flashing with the ability to fully customize the shape and size of roof flashing is crucial to ensure an effective and efficient installation.

At Roofing Options Centre, we provide custom made flashing to suit your needs.  Made onsite at our Campbellfield manufacturing plant, we manufacture custom made flashing up to 8m long and 1.2m wide.

Our custom flashing come in the full range of COLORBOND® Steel colours, including ZINCALUME® Steel, and are generally produced within a two day turn around.

For more information about Custom-Made COLORBOND® or ZINCALUME® Steel Flashings, visit:  https://www.roofingoptions.com.au/custom-made-flashings/ or contact one of our 3 stores where our friendly Flashing experts are waiting to help you with your Flashing enquiry.

Polycarbonate Or Glass?

7 REASONS WHY POLYCARBONATE ROOFING IS BETTER THAN GLASS There’s no denying the use of Glass as a cladding material in commercial and residential property constructions has many appealing qualities. The most prominent quality is transparency. Glass allows natural sunlight to light up and brighten interiors creating a warm and inviting space. But despite this

COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® Colours

COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® Colours

Colour is often referred to as “the most personal element of design”.  This makes sense.  Building structures are often restricted in design to allow for function. Therefore, it’s in the colour where you can really make it your own.

We at Roofing Options Centre know this.  We understand how important it is for you to really express yourself and play a major part in the personality of your home.

That is why, this month, we want to talk to you about the Colourbond colour range.

Whether you are looking for inspiration for your roof, gutters, wall cladding, garden beds or sheds, the Colourbond colour range gives you the confidence and ability to create a number of harmonising or contrasting colour schemes that you will love for years to come.

Available in three distinct ranges, you are sure to find the Colourbond colour that suits the style you are trying to create.

The Classic Range includes the enduring colours that we’ve all come to know, including Classic Cream, Woodland Grey, Night Sky and Paperbark.

The Contemporary Range contains a more modern palette that is fast becoming popular.  These colours include Basalt, Monument, Surfmist and Ironstone.

The Matt Range of Basalt, Dune, Monument, Shale Grey and Surfmist offers a subtle, softer and more sophisticated twist on some of the Contemporary colours to give you that extra flexibility and range in your design.

At Roofing Options Centre, we offer the entire Colourbond colour range across all of our steel roofing, rainwater water goods, wall cladding and garden bed range.

We provide colour sample cards for your reference to help with your decision.

Trimdeck: 5-Rib Roofing

If you’ve ever considered installing a metal roof or building a shed, you’ve probably been directed toward several different websites, pamphlets, and publications about Corrugated roofing and its benefits.  It’s understandable, given the long and successful history Corrugated Roofing iron has had as both a roof and wall cladding material.

But did you know you had another option that provides a little more flexibility when compared to Corrugated roofing?

It’s called Trimdeck or 5-Rib Roofing.

Like Corrugated Roofing iron, Trimdeck roof sheets are roll formed out of .42BMT thickness metal sheeting as standard but are also available in a thicker .48BMT.

The profile of a Trimdeck roof sheet is almost double the height of a Corrugated roof sheet which allows Trimdeck roofing sheets to be installed on lower pitched roof lines.  Trimdeck roof sheets can be installed on roof pitches as low as 2 degrees, ideally suited to Carports or Garage roof spaces.

The Trimdeck profile is a square fluted design, offering a more contemporary appearance than the classic Corrugated “S-Rib” design.  However, the benefits to Trimdeck aren’t just limited to its look.  Beyond just its style, there are a few more reasons why an increasing number of people are now using Trimdeck.

5-Rib Roofing

Trimdeck Specifications

These reasons include:

  • High strength to weight ratio – a Trimdeck sheet profile design allows for a lower minimum pitch than a Corrugated sheet. Trimdeck can handle a roof pitch as low as 2 degrees vs a Corrugated sheet which has a minimum roof pitch of 5 degrees

  • Optimal load span consistency – the coverage of a Trimdeck sheet is the same as that of a Corrugated sheet (.762); however, the design of the Trimdeck profile allows to span a further distance between purlins (up to 20%) more

  • Effective Drainage – Trimdeck roof sheets effectively drain water from your structure, keeping you safe and dry

Like Corrugated sheets, Trimdeck can be cut to length according to your requirements and is available in ZINCALUME® and the entire COLORBOND® colour range.  Selling at the same retail price as Corrugatedroof sheets, Trimdeck is suitable for walls, sheds, garages, carports, awnings, verandas, kit homes, and commercial buildings.

Trimdeck is worth considering for your next project, especially if your roofline is almost flat!

Spring is just around the corner

It might seem odd to think so, given that we are on the doorstep of Winter, but September comes around very quickly.  And given the ideal weather in Spring, September, October and November are considered the best months for home renovations and improvements in Australia.  But don’t wait until builders and tradies start filling up their calendars for the sunny months, start thinking about replacing your wearing pergola roof today.

One brand to consider for polycarbonate roofing is Laserlite.  Since its inception, the name Laserlite has become synonymous with Polycarbonate roofing in Australia.  Polycarbonate Laserlite roofing provides an attractive and functional solution for outdoor roofing.  Whether you are seeking shelter from rain and hail or protection from UV rays (while still allowing light through), Laserlite polycarbonate roofing contains patented technologies that suit these purposes.

Both the Laserlite 2000 and Laserlite 3000 range are available in corrugated and greca profiles.  The Laserlite 2000 range also comes in a 5-rib profile.

The Laserlite 2000 range contains the colours Clear, Opal, Cream, Bronze Tint and Grey Tint, whereas the Laserlite 3000 colour range has a more metallic feel, coming in Platinum, Frost and Gun Metal.  Deciding on the colour comes down to the desired look and the function you require.

Whether you are considering the traditional Laserlite 2000 range or the more advanced Laserlite 3000, there are plenty of reasons to choose either.


Reasons to choose Laserlite

  • A robust colour and profile range design to cater to differing light and heat requirements

  • Up to 69% Heat Reduction

Further to this, the Laserlite 3000 range contains Comfort Cool Technology that further reflects heat away, keeping you cool underneath, while still allowing visible light through to brighten up your space and maintain your outdoor feel.

The range of Laserlite Polycarbonate Roofing is available online via our website.
