New Zealand roofs are about to experience a major evolution. Technological advancements and innovative new design and application techniques will see a step-change in how roofing materials are made and installed. Creating 100% watertight, well ventilated, sustainable and energy efficient homes, and longer lifetime value for home owners.

Metal roofing technology has changed dramatically since the days of decramastic tiles. The old-generation scallop-shaped tiles made of galvanised metal coated with stone chip, although innovative at the time, unfortunately couldn’t live up to the value expectations of designers and homeowners.

Fast track 20 years, and the technology has certainly come a long way. Metal tiles have continued to make incremental improvements, offering designers and home owners improved value over the years.

And now, the latest innovation in metal roofing has everyone talking. Made from the highest quality steel with a 100% watertight interlocking design, Metal Panels are the new roofing system on the block. And being faster and more cost effective to install, roofers and home owners alike, are lining up to get a piece of the action.
