Other elements that you will need to consider for any roofing project include sarking - a reinforced foil material that is laid underneath the actual roofing surface. Its purpose is to help keep out any water as well as to provide insulation against the heat, cold and sound.
You can also choose to install insulation after your roof has been completed. Your roofing professional will be able to advise you on which insulation materials are best for your requirements. Finally, before erecting a new roof or renovating your existing one, it is always wise to check with your local council and familiarise yourself with their regulations. For example, some councils will only allow certain materials in certain colours.
What can you reasonably expect to pay for your roofing project? The first step is to have an idea of the area or size of your roof. This can be determined by using house plans or physically measuring the perimeter yourself. Once you have a square meter figure a roofing specialist would be able to give you a quote. This could range from $80 to $110 depending on where you live, and would typically include removal of your existing roof and installation of all the new elements - roofing material, blankets, battens, sarking etc. Expect to pay more if your roof is especially steep or your property has difficult access. In terms of roofing materials Colorbond is generally the most costly type of roofing followed by terracotta and concrete tiles.
