We can facilitate all applications, assessments, reports, and approval certificates to help building professionals and property owners achieve fluid and timely building approvals.
Failure to obtain valid building approval and payment of the Home Warranty Scheme premiums when performing roofing repairs over the value of $3300 could mean the QBCC takes disciplinary action.

Significant roof repairs
A roof that requires more than 20-per-cent of the existing roof space to be replaced will require a building certificate application to be made by the contractor or the property owner.
As a general rule, a roof structure is expected to last from 40 to 50 years. During this period, quality and safety standards for roof structures and coverings can change dramatically, and the new construction must meet the new code, not the code that was relevant when the property was built.
An assessment will need to be made by a building certifier to ensure the roof repair or reconstruction proposal meets all current checks and specifications.
The assessment will be a requirement whether the roof is being repaired due to its age or state of disrepair. This includes insurance claims due to storm damage or otherwise.
The experienced consultants here at the Building Certification Group can facilitate all assessments, application and certifications on behalf of property owners or contractors for all roof repairs, restorations or rebuilds.
Having all advisors, consultants, facilitators and certifiers’ under one roof means property owners and building contractors can negate the chance of miscommunications between agencies, contractual confusions between tradespeople, and delays in productivity.
Avoidable delays can be especially frustrating for all parties involving roof repairs, especially in times of unfavourable weather.
Our contractors can ensure the entire process runs as smoothly as possible, reducing wasted time for contractors, and getting property owners roofs repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
