    Question Bullnose profile fitting on new roof

    Hi all,


    we have had the roofers in and out for the past two weeks doing the house and today is the second last day.

    The rest of the roofing is good, they were unanimously recommended and it wasn't the cheapest quote!


    The bullnose was completed this afternoon and after looking at it and comparing to old photos, it seems to dip up and down slightly just on the curve.



    It's a bit hard finding any photos on google that show a bullnose from an upwards viewing angle, and against a line to compare.



    Can someone tell me from the photos if it is

    - the fitting,

    - the material (ie. just down to iron bullnose vs colorbond properties and is to be expected)

    - or the relatively frameless structure for the colorbond (just wall plate and hip rafter) that would be causing this,


    -or is it just due to getting used to a shiny new colorbond roof and part of me is missing the crumply character-filled old iron roof?

    That does look a bit odd. I'd be giving the boss a call to take a bo peep and see what can be done to improve that look.
    Was the bullnose rolled onsite?

    The boss was installing it with two guys and said it was hand rolled by Strammit.
    I will go out on a limb here and say there was a machine involved somewhere and was the ~1mm stuff.

    Bullnose is usually done with curving quality sheeting (heavier than standard).
    They have not spent enough time fitting it.
    Get them back and don't accept it until it is straight.
    Should not be too hard to fix it.
    There appears to be 3 sheets out of line, but difficult to pick any more without being there.

    If they did the main roof, ask them to fix the ridge cap at the top.
    Don't know why it is standing up unless it is unfinished.

    Thanks Uncle Bob & Cyclic,

    the ridge cap is getting finished today...

    It's definitely the heavier stuff- very stiff compared to the 42
    I checked the old with the new sheets and there is a longer straight and greater angle on the newer so this and a slight difference in level with seating on the wall plate may have 'popped' the curves when fixing to the fascia.

    I've spoken to them this morning and they realise it has to be fixed.
    Luckily haven't paid yet
