I am planning to replace my existing roof, made up of concrete tiles (75%) and colorbond (25%). The roof is OK, but ugly and there are to many nooks and crannies where tiles and colorbond bits come together. No wonder I have possums as neighbours and whenever there is a torrential downpour I pray the roof won't leak (it doesn't, but there is always the fear )
The idea is to replace it with a single solution (probably Nu-Lok) to improve looks and weatherproof the house. This would require a redesign of part of the roof (the colorbond part, about 25% of the roof) to increase the pitch of the roof. Apparently Nu-Lok can handle roof pitches as low as 5 degrees.
Would you consider involving an architect for this new roof design (which also includes replacing soffits, fascia's and all downpipes, etc.), or just work with a builder/roofer?

I'd get a rough floorplan and a couple of elevations drawn up by a draftsman. Neither have to be in great detail as you are only changing your roof but a few arrows and explanation notes would cut out any uncertainty on the builders, carpenters or roofers part.

Hey howey. You’ll need a drafty to start with mate. There regs to follow that constitute a habitable space you may not be aware of and that’s where draftys come in.…
