A roof does far more than contribute to a property’s kerb appeal; it’s also the first line of defence against the elements. Even the smallest leak can lead to extensive water damage and eventually mould and rot. Replacing your roof will avoid those potential hazards and be a great investment, since re-roofing is one of the most attractive renovations to potential homebuyers.

Environmental considerations need to be taken into account when selecting the best type of roofing for your property. Because of the region’s significant seasonal variations, roofing materials in Geelong need to be robust and durable. Even during the drier months, Geelong still sees significant rainfall, so that’s a factor as well.
Metal roofing is a great option. It’s lightweight, rust resistant, and impedes algae growth, all ideal given Geelong’s humidity and precipitation. Its longevity and cost-friendly price tag make it a top contender. It’s also strong enough to support solar panel installations.
Roofing tiles are a versatile choice as they come in various materials; slate and terracotta are two of the most popular. Slate is at the high end of the price spectrum, with a lifespan of up to 150 years if installed correctly. Though terracotta can break if hit by a large object (think tree branches) the tiles are easily replaced and otherwise extremely durable. Both slate and terracotta are great insulators and will help increase the energy efficiency of your Geelong home.
Choosing the right roofing material depends on each individual property’s location and roof profile, so it’s best to consult a professional. Get in touch with a local Geelong Renovation Consultant for help deciding what to use for your project.
Whether you want to patch and repair your roof or replace it completely, Refresh offers a wide range of roofing services. And we know roofing projects often go hand in hand with other home improvements, such as recladding or exterior painting. So, whatever your project needs, we’re here to help.
...and anything else you can think of!
The cost of replacing a roof will vary depending on a number of factors, including pitch, area, interior guttering, and the materials chosen. Scaffolding could be an additional expense. Re-roofing an average-sized home in Geelong may cost around $10,000* using corrugated iron and $30,000* for asphalt roofing.
Since roofing is often part of a larger project, here’s an example of a full exterior renovation that was completed by Refresh for $110,000*. This project included:
- A freshly painted exterior
- New outdoor light installation
- Full roof repair with new paint
- Window installation in bedrooms and office
- Garage door replacement
*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Consultant.
Refresh take care of any council applications required for these projects. Your Renovation Consultant will arrange for the necessary permits to be obtained prior to commencement.
