Fact Vs Fiction Learn The Truth About Long Run Roofing For Your Auckland Property

By March 13, 2019Long Run Roofing

Getting a roofing upgrade is exciting. It’s a chance to wave goodbye to persistent leaks, bird infestations and other roof woes. You have an opportunity to fix these problems with your new roof, as long as it’s the right fit. Long run roofing has been available in Auckland for a while. Despite this, many people reject it as a roofing option due to lingering misconceptions on how it operates. We’re here to separate fact from fiction so that you can make an informed choice.

Fiction: You’ll Never Have Peaceful Sleep When It Rains

We’ll start with the most famous myth about long-run roofing. If you’ve ever stood beneath a metal carport while it rained, you’ll know that the racket is unbearable. The same isn’t true for metal roofs. When we install long-run roofing, we include padding to absorb the noise. You’ll continue to sleep like a baby.

Fiction: I Won’t Be Able To Go Anywhere Near It

Walking on any roof isn’t advisable without the right safety equipment. However, you might want to clear your gutters or trim some tree branches alongside your roof. It’s true that metal has less grip than materials like asphalt. However, long-run roofing is designed to include support that lets you place weight on it. If you plan on doing work on your roof, rather trust a roofing expert to do it.  

Fiction: The Roof Will Get Rusty If It Rains

The weather changes all the time. From rain to sunshine, your roof must be able to withstand the elements. While long-run roofing does contain metal, this doesn’t mean it will rust. It’s treated and tested to survives storms, rain and hail fall without rusting in the slightest. Most long run roofing sheets are coated with waterproof protection to allow this and to prevent their colour from running.

Still not convinced long-run roofing is for you? The best way to figure out what will work best is to contact roofing experts like the team at Archer Roofing. Contact us today to speak to a long run roofing expert in Auckland.

  • We tried to get quotes for a new roof on our property and found it almost impossible to even get someone to look at the roof. We managed to get one quote that was horrendous and were at our wits end before we spoke to Kevin at Archer Roofing. The new roof is now on and at a price we were very happy with. Thanks guys and we will recommend and use you again. Brian Langridge.

  • Highly recommended. Helped with an emergency call out when other local contractors let us down multiple times. Contacted our client, headed out to site and got the job done straight away. Price was fair also. Definately worth your consideration ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Kevin and Archer Roofing team were very professional and efficient. They managed to complete our re-roof sooner than expected and started before estimated time. Kevin kept us informed every step of the way which was great. He was also really fast at providing a quote after our initial inquiry. Would highly recommend.

    Kev from 'Archer roofing' was fantastic to deal with, offering expert advice, answers and a willingness to help the client. Of note, his communication was well above average and a major breath of fresh air for me, as I was carrying out concurrent house maintenance.

    Although I am no roofing expert, I am a qualified tradespersons, and the job carried out appears to be professional and of high quality.

    Cheers again.

  • Great job done on our re-roof by Kevin and the Archer Roofing team.

    Gave a good quote then when gear and materials were ready had the old roof off and new one on in one day.

    Easily recommend them for any roofing work you need done.

    Marko Alach 2/25/2019

    When our roof was leaky and we needed fast help, Kevin and the team were there to help and fix. They really went the extra mile to make sure the job gets done quickly and properly. Very responsive, easy to deal with and just professional. So glad I found Archer Roofing online when I needed them most. Great workmanship and work ethic. I can definitely recommend them.

    Mel Pitto 8/27/2018

    Had our house fully re-roofed and was very happy with the professional job and level of service. The scaffolding truck broke a fence post when backing into our driveway and there was zero issue about getting it repaired. Extras like guttering and aerial replacement included. Kevin and his team were easy to deal with, left the place tidy and the roof looks great. Recommended.

  • At first Kevin came out to inspect the roof which was leaking and full replacement recommended. On accepting the job it was a soothe transition in time delivery, getting roof off and on again and Insulation was installed at the same time . Having an old bungalow and the roof layout was terrible which Kevin created the new layout & fixed which was no easy task. I found Kevin to have expertise and his team where great to deal with. We could not be happier with the results. I Highly recommend Archer Roofing Kevin and his team. Thanks again.

    Kevin and his team did an excellent job of fixing our leaky roof, were prompt with quoting and getting the job done, definitely a company you can trust with all your roof care requirements.

    Isla Kirkpatrick 8/27/2018

    They did an excellent job for us replacing the roof of our large property. Pleasant and professional to deal with, highly efficient, the entire job was completed in one day including cleaning up and arranging for collection of the old roof. Our next roofing job surely will come their way too.

    Antonius Gossen 3/15/2019
  • Fast service fixing a leak on an older iron roof. I put in an website enquiry & got a call-back within minutes. Someone came to look at the roof the next day, and the job was done a couple of days after that. The roofer who did the work came from another larger job and worked after hours to get the leak fixed fast in the middle of winter. Thanks guys!

    Stu Maxwell 7/10/2019

    Great service from Kevin and his team. Kevin called in and meassured our roof on his way home the same day as I called him. The next day he forwarded his quote, which I accepted by return. The job was completed on time with no fuss and no mess left behind. Our builder was most impressed with the job done and he will most certainly use Archer Roofing as his "go to" roofer on any future jobs.

  • Cannot recommend Archer Roofing enough. We struggled to get so many other companies to even acknowledge our phone calls/emails, it was nuts.

    Kevin responded to my email almost instantly and organised a quote straight away. Super easy communication via email/text/phone and was happy to answer questions and allay fears.

    The re-roof was completed in ONE day, including clean-up. Like, it was just such a crazy, tidy, efficient job.

    Super happy.

    Belle M Kelsall 7/16/2019

    We had a problem with a leak in our roof and these guys came out and fixed it quickly and efficiently - very happy with the service.

    Andy Clark 8/27/2018

    A big thank you to Kevin and his team for fixing our roof quickly and professionally. Kevin responded promptly to our call. Our small but troublesome roofing issue was sorted within 48hours and at the right price! We would use Kevin again but hopefully won't need to!

  • Reroof, Kevin and his team carried out a great job over a very wet period . Always keeping in touch as to what was haappening . Site left clean and tidy .

    Barry Renton 8/27/2018

    We recently changed our concrete tile roof to long run after getting multiple quotes and advice, we decided to use Kevin from Archer Roofing as we felt comfortable/confident dealing with him. Kevin did a fantastic job with our roof, kept us updated with progress, communication was also top notch.

    We would highly recommend Kevin for any roofing work. Fantastic team who works alongside Kevin.

    Karen Kingdon 6/24/2019

    Kevin and the team did an amazing job re-roofing our house. The price was more than reasonable and they handled a number of extras for us that they wouldn't normally do e.g. painting fascia boards. The cost of the job was very competitive compared to the market.

    I highly recommend Kevin and will definitely be using Archer roofing in the future.

    Andy H 4/15/2019
  • Kevin and his team were awesome! The quality of the workmanship was great. Their communication and reliability were excellent. The price was very reasonable and even when the job became more complicated than we had expected, Kevin was part of coming up with a great solution and implemented it quickly. Kevin even minimized the cost over-runs even though they weren't of his making (i.e. weather issues!). We would use Kevin again without hesitation and have been recommending him to our friends.

    martin dix 4/04/2018

    I found Kevin prompt courteous and efficient. He came when he said he would, gave me a price later the same day and turned up to do the job on the day and time he said he would. Hard to find this quality of professionalism with a tradesman these days. Oh, and he did a fantastic job too , no more leaks !!!

    Diana Ayson 8/27/2018

    Love our new roof! Kevin and boys his boys did a fab job.

    Amazing they got the job done in between our Auckland wet weather, I am pleasantly surprised. THANKS A MILLION 😊

    Gary Cooper 7/25/2018

    Good contact, fast service and a very neat and tidy looking job. Put a new coloursteel roof on my garage extension with no hassle which looks outstanding. Will be the first person I go back to when I build again.
