The purpose of a house is to protect your family and property from the elements. A major part of this is the roof. Any good roof should be able to handle UV, hail, moisture, torrential rains and vigorous storms.
Your local council will also have peculiar requirements for your area. My neighbour built a new house ( we live rurally just north of Sydney ) and had many bushfire regulations to comply with that included specifications for their metal roof and guttering. One of these was a guttering system that would not fill with leaves, and they wanted easy maintenance too. This was handled with a leaf guard.
Major roof work is always going to be costly, and everyone wants to save money on these jobs. So what should you consider when you need to get a roof ?
