frequently asked questions

Do I need to be home?

If we have access to the roof externally, no you don't have to be home. We can take photos and show you what needs to be done and what has been done.We can also give you a call while we're there if you have any concerns.

Are you insured?

Yes, we are fully insured both for Public Liability and Workers Compensation. Click for the current certificates.

What areas do you service?

All Sydney metropolitan areas.

Do you remove all rubbish?

Yes. NSRS prides themselves on being clean and efficient. We promise to leave you home without any debris from our worksite.

How high do you go?

We can reach any height provided their are "man holes" to get to the roof. We also carry three storey ladders so can work on three-four storeys without a man hole.

I want to hire you, what comes next?

Once you've contacted us, we will organise as quickly as possible to quote your job. After you accept the quote and we have recieved a deposit, we confirm colours and materials with you and get on with the job!

I'm on a budget, are there other options?

The short answer is "yes"! Many roofers today quote based on the value of your home, or want to take the easy option of just replacing your whole roof. We don't think this is fair and believe in providing a fair quote for our clients. Although in some cases a new roof may be the best option, on request we can provide various conservative options so you can choose one to cater to your budget.

The Ins And Outs of How We Do Business


metal roof or

tile roof?


Metal roofs have come a long way since the old corrugated tin roof. They're now more popular than tile roofs not only because of their cost effectiveness but also their longevity.


Advantages of metal roofs include:

  • Almost unlimited colour selection

  • Variety of modern profiles to suit any home design

  • Hail and impact resistant

  • Extremely weather durable

  • Very good value for money

  • Easier to detect leaks

  • Faster and cheaper to replace sheets of metal than a collection of tiles

  • Pest control is simpler

Metal roofing materials (including Colourbond) typically come with a minimum of 25 year warranties- also covering flaking and chipping.

​If you're considering installing a water tank or already have one, a metal roof is the way to go. Tiles absorb a percentage of the water and also retain dirt, dust and other yucky things you don't want floating around. Metal roofs will harvest more water for you and it will be cleaner as well.


Colourbond is 10% of the weight of tile roofs! It also doesn't change weight from water absorption, so your roof frames are under a lot less stress- making engineering specifications a lot less difficult. 


A Colourbond roof is more desirable for eaves and verandas because of its lighter weight (it also gives you that traditional Australian veranda look).

So what do you think? Metal roof or tile?
