- What are some of the symptoms that my roof needs to be repaired?A wet spot on your ceiling, peeling paint, warped ceiling plasterboard, excessive water streaming over gutters or spilling out of downpipes, or gutters hanging down are all signs of a roof or gutter problem. These are only a few signs that something is wrong with your roof or gutters.
- Do I need Building Consent to reroof my house?Under Schedule 1 of the Building Act, there are some exemptions for the requirement for a Building Consent. The use of a comparable system (sometimes called like for like) usually means a Building Consent is not required. For example, replacing 20-year old metal roof profile cladding, where that cladding has achieved its Building Code durability requirement (lasted more than 15 years) and the replacement cladding is a comparable component or assembly, such as metal roof profile roofing - Building Consent is not required. However, it is best to check with your Local Building Consent Authority (Council / BCA) before work commences.
- Do I need council consent if there is structural roof work during my reroof?With any structural work undertaken it is best to check with your Local Building Consent Authority (Council / BCA).
- Do I need council consent if my roof has failed its durability requirements?Under the Building Code, if the roof has failed within less than 15 years, then Building Consent will be required.
