When your roof needs restoring, you might spend some time pondering which type of roof to choose. You could decide to splash out on terracotta tiles, or maybe even slate, but if you want dependable, strong roofing for your Ballina home, you need to consider metal roofs. Ricky Jenner Plumbing, Roofing and Guttering believe that there are several benefits to choosing this form of roofing, and we can explain why. 


Perhaps the most pressing reason for choosing a metal roof is that it is extremely durable, with the ability to resist corrosion and protect the home against extremes of weather, particularly important when you live in New South Wales and have to be aware of the risk of fires and storms. Of course, other advantages include being fireproof, resistant to sparks and fire hazards which could otherwise damage your roof.

Insect Resistance

Metal roofs are one way to solve a problem with insects such as termites. You may have had to remove the roof to get at a nest in the eaves, for example, and so a metal roof replacement could be the solution that you were looking for. 


When you are on a strict budget, finding a roof that is affordable is essential, and a metal roof can help you out here when you ask Ricky Jenner Plumbing, Roofing and Guttering to install it. It is much easier to fit onto your home, allowing for faster installation and lower labour costs. There is also the chance that you won't have to paint it or maintain it in costly ways, so that you can save money in this way.

Thermal protection

You might be worried about energy efficiency, particularly when it comes to saving money on your gas or electricity, and a metal roof can be helpful here since they offer great thermal protection. Not only can they be fitted with insulation which keeps you warm, but when you have lighter coloured metal roofs, they can be resistant to heat absorption.
