With an increasingly heated climate, the cost of a roofing system can become a serious issue for renters and buyers alike.
The Australian Capital Territory has already seen its first shortage of metal roof coating on a residential roof in the form of copper roofs, with the government offering an additional $150,000 to help with the costs.
“The government’s announcement that it’s prepared to provide an additional grant of up to $150k to help fund the cost to the copper industry is very welcome,” Peter Hirsch, executive director of the NSW Copper Council, said.
“It means that the copper supply will be better protected, which will help keep our electricity prices low.”
While the issue of copper shortages is not new, the new funding will give us the opportunity to start a national conversation on this issue and ensure we have an efficient supply for all households.
“The government will be looking to extend the grant through to 2020.
The council has already been working with the NSW Government on a plan to offer its copper-based roof coating for free, with an option for the state to offer up to 25 per cent of the cost for other projects. “
This is an issue we have been raising with the federal government,” a spokesperson for the Australian Roofing Council said.

Copper roofing sheet shortage The copper industry has been struggling for the last few years to find the right materials to supply its customers with the right products.
“We have been looking to our suppliers for quite some time now and have found that some of our suppliers are not happy with the current prices we’re paying,” Gary Wysong, chief executive of the Australian Industry Group of Roofing Contractors, said in a statement.
While the copper shortage is a long-term issue, there is an immediate need to increase the supply of roofing.
The average price of copper in Australia is currently around $60 per metre, with a range of costs for different types of roofings ranging from $40 to $80 per metre depending on the material used and the design of the roof.
A copper roof is a type of roof coating used on roofs in the United States and Europe.
It is used to insulate a building from the elements, such as rain, snow and hail.
The coating is also used to protect a building’s roofing from the sun and moisture.
It also acts as a coating for paint and is commonly used for insulation.
It is used in residential and commercial buildings, which is why copper roofing is commonly found in roofing panels, as well as in residential structures such as roofs, chimneys and decks.
Metal roofing plates are a cheaper alternative to copper, as they are cheaper to produce, but they require extra labour and labour intensive processes to make.
In Australia, the copper market is worth around $4.5 billion, and in the first half of 2017, the Australian copper industry was worth around half a billion dollars.
The government’s $150m funding announcement is another step towards ensuring that Australian roofing materials can continue to be produced at a fair price, as the country’s economy is struggling to cope with the heating and cooling demand.
