FAQ

We try to update this FAQ section on a regular basis. If you are looking for an answer that is not here, give us a call on 5564 8200. We will answer your question for you and will add your question to our FAQ's section for the benefit of other customers.

+ Where are you located?

We are conveniently located off the Smith Street Motorway at 513 Olsen Avenue, Ashmore on the Gold Coast. Directly across from the Holden dealership, our large red signage is hard to miss.

+ What are your opening hours?

We are open from 6:30am to 4:30pm from Monday to Thursday, and from 6:30am to 4:00pm on Friday. For your convenience, we are also open from 6:30am to 9:45am on Saturday mornings for pick-ups.

+ How much do your services cost?

At Action, we pride ourselves in providing well-priced services and value for money. The cost of our services will vary depending on the individual customer as everyone has different specifications for their projects. However, we do offer free quotes for all customers.

+ What is sheetmetal?

Sheet metal is simply metal formed into thin and flat pieces. It is one of the fundamental forms used in metalworking and can be cut and bent into a variety of different shapes. Countless everyday objects are constructed with sheet metal. We work with stainless steel, Colorbond, copper, aluminium, black steel and galvanised steel. Depending on the material, thicknesses range from .55mm to 12mm plate.

+ What metals do you use?

We only use high-quality metals to ensure your custom project is long-lasting and sturdy. We work with metals to the like of aluminium, stainless steel, mild steel, copper, Colorbond sheeting, Zincalume steel, and an architect’s favourite, Corten steel.

+ Should I install my own roof or patio?

While installing your own roof or patio may save you costs in the short-term, it can be very costly in the long-run if you have made any mistakes during the installation. Unless you are experienced and truly know what you’re doing, Action suggests using a licensed tradesperson. This is the safer option because in the event of a dodgy installation, their insurance will cover the costs rather than you having to dip into your pocket. And what’s more, if you’re struggling to find a local contractor that you can count on, we can refer to you to one of our most trusted and long-time contacts.

+ How long does it take to organise a patio?

From placement of order, the lead time is around one week and many tradesmen can have 60 square metres covered in just 2-3 days, ready to enclose if required.

+ How long does Colorbond last?

For COLORBOND® steel, BlueScope Steel offers a warranty against corrosion to perforation by weathering in the natural elements for a period of up to 30 years from the date of installation. BlueScope Steel also warrants that the paint system on COLORBOND® steel will not flake or peel due to natural weathering for a period of up to 20 years from the date of installation.

+ What sort of fasteners should I use?

If you have decided to DIY, it is imperative that you use quality fasteners as there have been many serious cases of screw failures. We recommend using Buildex Class 4 or Class 5 roofing screws which are proven and superior fasteners that we ourselves have used for many years. Going with a cheaper option really isn’t worth the risk you take for your family, or your business and clients. Read more here http://bit.ly/14IKD2c

+ Do you offer powder coated finish?

Yes, we are able to finish your custom manufactured project by powder-coating it in the colour of your choice. We offer a variety of colours including the Colorbond colour range in case you need to match your project to your Colorbond roof, gutter, panel, or shed.

+ Do you perform rush work?

If you have a last-minute or emergency project, we can have it completed for you as soon as possible, depending on the complexity of it. We work closely with our clients to make sure we have their project finished by their deadline, but still to our usual high-quality standard.

+ Do you deliver?

Yes, we can deliver your roof or custom made sheetmetal items or arrange suitable freight. We also post custom made projects both nationally and internationally if you are not a Gold Coast local. Pick ups are also welcome, but only if the load can be legally carried.

+ Do you install?

We don’t install roofs and patios but we are able to refer you to the best local and licensed tradespeople to do so. We can however install custom manufactured items on large projects.

+ Can you shear and bend material?

Yes, we have quality tooling on hand which allows us to shear, bend, weld, laser cut or punch the material of your choice.

+ Do you work with design software?

Yes, we use 2 and 3D design software and can accept most file formats.

+ Do you design and build?

Yes, we have expert staff who have the know-how and skills to both design and build your custom project.

+ Can you make single items or do you only mass produce?

At Action, we regularly make one-off custom projects such as custom furniture pieces and gifts. We also do small production runs.

+ I have an idea for a design…what should I do next?

If you’ve got an idea in mind, the next step is to speak to us so we can help you turn it into a reality. You can phone us, drop into our Gold Coast showroom, email us, or submit an online enquiry here.
