When it comes to roofing solutions, homeowners often face the challenge of balancing durability, aesthetics, and functionality. A recent project in Red Hill epitomizes how addressing these needs can lead to transformative outcomes, particularly for properties experiencing persistent issues like leaks and structural vulnerabilities. This case study involves a comprehensive tile-to-metal roof conversion for an elderly lady’s home, providing a robust solution that addressed her immediate concerns and long-term needs.

Understanding the Challenge

Our client, a resident of the scenic suburb of Red Hill, was dealing with a tile roof that had seen better days. Frequent leaks and the ongoing maintenance costs associated with tile roofs were causing her considerable distress. As is common with many older homes, her roof’s underlayment and structural integrity were compromised, necessitating frequent repairs. The need for a durable, low-maintenance roofing option led her to consider a conversion to metal roofing.

Choosing Colorbond Steel for Durability

After evaluating several options, we decided on Colorbond steel roofing in the shade of Pale Eucalypt. Colorbond is renowned for its durability, weather resistance, and aesthetic appeal. The Pale Eucalypt color was chosen to blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings and the architectural style of Red Hill homes. Colorbond steel is also known for its thermal efficiency, which was an important consideration for improving the home’s energy efficiency and reducing heating and cooling costs.

Structural Upgrades for Enhanced Safety

Given the age of the property and the issues with the existing roof structure, we consulted with our engineering team to assess the necessary structural upgrades. This assessment led to the installation of new Truecore steel battens, which are known for their strength and durability. These battens provided a stable framework for the new metal roof, ensuring it would withstand the local climate conditions, including heavy rain and strong winds.

New Guttering System Integration

No roof conversion is complete without considering how water evacuation is handled. To complement the new roof, we installed a new guttering system designed to integrate flawlessly with the Colorbond roofing. This system not only enhances the roof’s effectiveness in managing rainwater but also contributes to the overall aesthetic and functional upgrade of the property.

Addressing the Client’s Needs

Throughout the project, our focus remained steadfast on addressing the client’s need for a durable roofing solution that would minimize future maintenance. The elderly homeowner required a solution that would give her peace of mind, knowing that her home was protected against future leaks and structural issues. By opting for Colorbond steel and implementing the necessary structural upgrades, we provided a roofing system that exceeded her expectations in terms of durability and maintenance.

Long-Term Benefits and Maintenance

The advantages of a tile to metal roof conversion extend beyond just immediate leak prevention. Metal roofs such as those made from Colorbond steel offer long-term benefits, including enhanced resistance to fire, mold, pests, and rot. Additionally, metal roofs can last up to three times longer than traditional tile roofs, making them an economical choice over the lifespan of the property.

Aesthetic Considerations and Community Impact

The choice of Pale Eucalypt not only aligned with the homeowner’s aesthetic preferences but also with the community’s architectural standards. This subtle yet modern color choice allowed the property to maintain its character while subtly upgrading its external appearance. The project demonstrated how modern materials could be sensitively integrated into established neighborhoods to enhance both functionality and street appeal.


The tile roof conversion in Red Hill is a prime example of how modern roofing technologies and materials can solve traditional roofing problems while enhancing the property’s safety, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. For homeowners considering a similar transformation, this project serves as a benchmark of what can be achieved with the right materials, expertise, and attention to detail.
