Hi all,

 

 

 

I'm getting quotes to repair and paint my decromastic tile roof. Aware of the asbestos issue - doesn't seem to be a concern with my roof.

 

There are a bunch of dented tiles of which most will be able to popped up.

 

I have a split level house, about 120spm of roof space of which 1/2 is a second story.

 

 

 

I am getting quotes from Kowhai, Auckland Roof Painting, and will get a third. So far like Auckland Roof Painting, but not sold.

 

 

 

Has anyone had this done recently? Any idea of what I might be in for, and anything to watch out for?

First quote is for just over $10k including treating, blasting, popping up dented tiles, re-chipping and painting.

Does that include all associated costs like edge protection?

Seems to. I've asked a couple of clarifying questions about that, and a couple of other minor points.

Probably worth getting a quote from Edwards & Hardy:

They've been around a very long time in an industry where many cowboys have come and gone.

I got a reply from these guys stating that before they'll even come out I have to agree to a $150 asbestos test.

 

One of the other guys said that if we do a chemical spray and a low pressure wash not needed.

 

Hmmmmmmm.........

 

They also seem to be very strongly steering into the re-roofing angle.

3 quotes in - ranging from $5.5k to $6.9k to 10.5k.

 

Likely to go for the middle crowd - good reputation, lots of good reviews on no cowboys, and were good to talk with.

 

They will also do a couple of other small jobs while up on the roof - paint a second story window frame, and sort out a piece of guttering. Not too bad.

There was a roofer on trade me that apparently used to do a lot of tile renovation. IIRC he stopped and also recommended putting money towards new roof. Unfortunately he seems to have been banned and all his posts with reasoning have been deleted.

Thats a pity - I'd have liked to read his reasoning.

 

I had a chat about roof replacement a while ago, but it's just too much money right now, as I'd need to get a chunk of work done.

 

Essentially the whole roof would need to be lifted for room to get decent insulation installed. For a cheapish job I'm looking at $30k+ for the roof just replaced with colour steel or similar, and for a good one with decent insulation $45k+ apparently. Had this chat about 5 - 7 years ago, so prices may have changed. Also likely to require plans and building consent for even more money- blech.

 

I'd want to spend the 45k+, and don't have that right now. All of the painters, a couple of which do roof replacements have said it's in good enough condition they are happy to recoat and repaint. Only Edwards and Hardie who didn't come and look said they won't touch it, and that was asbestos related I believe more than anything else.

That's TM scorched earth policy for you. Say something stupid in Politics for example and everything sensible you've ever contributed disappears. I think he was in Tauranga - Te Puke area.

Poliitics was one of the forums that got cut as they didn't relate to TM activity. 2nd hand politicians have no auction value 😊. New owners saw some forums as too much liability.

We went with kowhai roofing but in welly they did a good job of renailing, rust treatment and new chips got the end flashings done as well for around  6 k a couple of years ago. The guys wore harnesses as well so didn’t have to pay for scaffolding. They were the only company we didn’t have to get an asbestos test. The asbestos is in the glue that sticks the chip to the tile so most places ask for it to be tested before they will consider the job. The other option we looked at was a reroof the cheapest option was  long run iron at around 15 k was cheapest option, colour steel was really expensive.
