Professional Metal Roofing Contractors

The history of metal roofing stretches back almost 200 years, to when corrugated iron was created in 1829. The early processes and materials have since improved with metal roofs evolving and becoming popular choices thanks to their ability to withstand rain, fire, and other harsh conditions.

 Our roofing specialists offer a wide range of services. Whether you have an old roof in need of repair, significant damage requiring a partial roof replacement, or you're looking to install a new roof, we’re here to help!

When it comes to your home, you shouldn't take any risks. If you need emergency roof replacement or repairs, contact us today. Upside Down offers 24/7 service, and one of our expert metal roofing contractors can be on site at the time that suits you best.

The Benefits of a Galvanised Corrugated Iron Roof

Metal roofing is simple, sturdy, and reliable. When it comes to quality roofing materials, you can't go wrong with modern metal sheeting. With almost 200 years of proven experience, there's a reason it's still a popular choice today.

New metal roofs can last for up to 50 years, and offer better durability for homes in areas with strong, frequent storms and intense bouts of rain. The hot-dip galvanised coating means your metal roof is protected against corrosion, while the corrugated design means your metal sheeting is tough enough to take a beating and remain strong.

In addition to being one of the best roofing materials for protection against the elements, metal roofing is recommended for homes in regions that are prone to bushfires or intense rain. Unlike tiles, metal roofing offers better protection against ember attacks, lightning, and other natural disasters.

For quality workmanship and exceptional service, get in touch today. The roofing experts at Upside Down can have a metal roof over your head in no time.

Choosing Your Metal Roof Profile

Unlike tiles which can often only be installed on roofs that fall within a certain pitch range, metal sheeting can be installed on roofs of any pitch. This can give you more flexibility when planning a new roof, and with a large variety of profiles you can even plan.

Types of metal roof sheeting profiles include:

  • Corrugated
  • Striated (or standing steam)
  • V-Ribs
  • Bead ribs
  • Pencil ribs

Each type of roofing profile offers different pros and cons, and some profiles may be more suitable to your needs.

We Use the Biggest Names in Metal Roofing

There are also a number of well known brands that produce metal roofing locally. Some of the best known names in the roofing industry include:

  • COLORBOND® Steel

When it comes to metal roofing, there are few brands as loved or well known as COLORBOND® Steel. Produced in Australia since 1966, COLORBOND® Steel has become synonymous with premium metal roofing for residential properties in Australia. It has a well earned reputation thanks to its enduring high standard of quality and reliability. It may be a bit more expensive than other brands, but when it comes to quality, it's a roofing dream.

  • ZINCALUME® Steel

As one of the more affordable choices, think of ZINCALUME® Steel as the cheaper, price conscious alternative to COLORBOND® Steel. Although it's not quite as durable, it's still a great quality roofing option and excellent value for anyone with a modest budget. With a lifespan of 25 to 30 years, ZINCALUME® Steel is suitable for any residential roofing project.

  • Stratco

Founded in 1948, Stratco began as a plumbing company before moving into manufacturing.

Metal Roofing FAQ

Do you have any questions about metal roofing? We can answer your questions here.

There are several advantages if you choose to go with metal roofing.
  • Affordability: Metal roofs are typically a lower cost item than tiles per square metre. Installation costs are also reduced as the lighter metal sheets require less structural support.
  • Durability: The steel used for Australian roofing is guaranteed to protect your home for at least 30 years. Some claim it will last up to 80 years.
  • Low maintenance: A regular wash with fresh water is all that’s required to prolong the good looks of metal roofing.
Metal roofs are also fire retardant, light weight and particularly energy efficient.

The heat impact of a metal roof depends on the insulation and colour of the roof. High quality metal sheets are low density and are therefore a better thermal insulator than tiles. Roof and ceiling insulation helps maintain a more comfortable indoor temperature too. However, darker metal roofs will absorb more heat than light-coloured ones. So if you do live in a warm climate, consider the colour of your roof carefully.

Yes it can. Even the toughest metal roof will fade after years exposed to the sun. A roofing technician from Upside Down can repaint your roof so that it looks as good as new. They will scrape away the existing paint, rust and debris before pressure cleaning and repainting the roof in the colour of your choice, using an airless spray gun. The result will give your roof a new lease on life.
