As I’m sure you’ve already heard, the Australian Government have unveiled its very enticing HomeBuilder package. The scheme offers $25,000 for individuals or couples to upgrade/ renovate or build their dream homes.
Since the announcement, we’ve had many questions and calls regarding if a roof replacement can be included within a prospective home renovation.
The answer to this is YES!
New roof replacements fall under the requirement where “renovations need to improve the safety of your home.” If you’re living under a roof with rusty screws, problematic battens, poor insulation, old shingle tiles or want to add an extension or external facelift to your home – now is the time to upgrade!
Upgrade To Colorbond
Capricorn Roofing is the Sunshine Coast’s preferred contractor for Metal Roofing works using the very popular Colorbond Steel range.
Colorbond Steel is the industry’s leading metal roofing material that offers compelling designs and practical benefits, including:
- Design flexibility
- Wide range of colours and profile choices
- Fast and efficient construction
- Thermal efficiency (warmer in winter and cooler in summer)
- Long-life performance made from corrosion-resistant ZINCALUME steel base and a paint finish that is resistant to cracking, peeling and chipping.
Should you meet the renovations criteria (which we outline further below), there are still a few requirements regarding building contracts that need addressing. One of these requirements describes that all works need to be conducted by a registered or licensed builder (not your favourite uncle or extended family member offering a helping hand).
This is to avoid contractors, and business’s bumping up the project costs just so individuals can access the grant (as it’s a requirement for renovations to be worth a minimum of $150,000)
$150,000 sounds like a lot …
However, when you take into consideration several renovation costs within your home – whether it is a kitchen, bathroom, living room or roof replacement … the prices add up.
Rough Roof Replacement Estimate
To gauge a VERY rough roof replacement cost for your renovation plans, it’s safe to estimate around $25,000 – $30,000.
However, this is depending on your home’s individual requirements including:
- Batten quality and replacement
- House size
- Insulation installation
