  • A women and a man with blue helmets are checking roofing sheets.

A good roofing supplier will provide you with a lot more than just roofing materials. The best suppliers are also very helpful. They will fill the gaps in knowledge that most people have and make sourcing roofing materials easy.

For more information, here is a checklist for finding the best roofing suppliers.

Sourcing Your Roofing – Some Examples

Most people source roofing materials for use on their homes, for repairs, or to replace old roofing. Determine what you need your roofing supplies for and contact your roofing suppliers directly for product information and prices.

So far, so good:  the problems are likely to be with what sort of materials you specifically need to address your roofing problems. This is where your roofing supplier can save you a lot of time, frustration, and money.

Here are a few examples:

  • If you have leaks or problems with the interior of the roof, you may need new guttering, downpipes, and flashings to resolve the leak and protect your home from water damage. A knowledgeable supplier will be able to recommend the exact rainwater products you need.
  • Large areas of roofing are another typical problem. If you’re replacing a significant amount of roofing, your choice of materials is very important. You can use the cost effective five rib roofing or the ever-reliable corrugated roofing for most applications. These are both available in Zincalume® or a range of Colorbond® steel colours.

As you can see, sourcing your roofing materials involves a range of decisions and practical applications. A good roofing supplier will be able to assist you with all aspects of your roofing, including materials choices, design options, and practical advice that solves your problems.

Prices for Roofing

To get the best prices, it is strongly recommended to source your roofing directly from specialist roofing suppliers. (Don’t bother sourcing from multiple suppliers; it always costs more than from industry suppliers.)

Metal roofing, in particular, is quite cheap from specialist suppliers and the range of product choices is much better. A good roofing supplier will also be able to give you a reliable price for all your roofing needs.

The Easy Way to Pick a Good Roofing Supplier

These are the sure signs of a good roofing supplier:

  • Great service: Expect the sort of friendly, professional help and useful advice you would expect from a good builder or other trades professional. You will instantly know that you’re talking to an expert who is trying to help you solve your problems.
  • Good prices: In the highly competitive roofing industry, the best suppliers always have the best prices. You will definitely get a better deal on your roofing.
