A Roof Over Your Head
The roof is an integral part of your New Zealand home. Which roofing product you choose needs to be carefully considered so you get not only the right look, but a roof that will stand the test of time. Auckland Roofers will provide you with the right advice and options so you make a well informed and educated decision.
Why Steel Roofing?
Metal roofing first came here in the form of corrugated galvanized steel and has been used extensively in New Zealand for over a hundred years. Because of this legacy steel roofing has become NZ’s most popular roofing solution. Steel roofs contribute much more to buildings than just keeping the water out: you get looks, style and strength, and unlike other roofing with steel, you can create a statement.
Auckland roofers most often recommend this type of roofing because of its value for money.
Residential steel roofs are available in a wide variety of designs, textures, styles and colors. As roofers on the North shore we can suggest the best product for your needs. Give us free phone call now on 0800 766 328 or email us.
Below you’ll find some of your roofing options.
Types of metal roofing:
Corrugated galvanized steel is the original product used in roofs. Corrugated galvanised steel is wrought iron/steel sheet coated with zinc giving it the silvery look and then roll formed into corrugated sheets. The use of corrugated iron is on the rise again in modern architecture, and with the increased use of green products.
Zinc Steel Roofing
Zincalume or galvalume steel roofing products are of a blend of zinc, aluminium and silicon-coated steel, sometimes left in the raw zinc finish. They have superior durability compared with the old galvanised steel / corrugated iron so are better in coastal parts of Auckland. The inherent strength, durability and usability of steel roofing make it a very attractive product for a range of building applications, not only roofs.
Stainless steel roofing is available for harsh conditions or is incorporated into house or industrial buildings as a distinctive design element.
Colour Steel Roofing
Pre-painted, factory coated steel comes in a range of grades and designer colours. It is rust resistant and should need little maintenance. Check with your North Shore roofer about the grade you need. Many North Shore homes may need marine grade colour steel roofing. COLORSTEEL® Endura™ and COLORSTEEL® Maxx™ are two products designed to meet the demands of New Zealand's range of environments.
Steel roofs are a good option when building a house or when you’re considering renovating your existing home. They provide excellent protection against extreme Auckland weather because of their durability. Another bonus is that they can help to reduce the homeowner’s carbon footprint. Steel is the most highly recycled building material in the world. You can use steel roofing knowing that it contributes to the sustainability of New Zealand as a whole. Just ask us, your local Auckland roofer, for more information on these great products by phoning 0800 766 328 or it's best to email us.
Steel Roofs are attractive and versatile
Steel roofs can complement any type of architecture. The colour of your roof can either contrast or complement the rest of your house. Using coloured steel roofing you can design a home that is as individual as you are. Pre-painted steel roofing is suitable for almost every design and can turn your house into a stunning home.
Steel Roofs are durable
Steel roofs can withstand extreme weather conditions: wind, hail and the harsh Auckland and North Shore sun. Because steel roofing is resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, it is a very low maintenance roofing material that lasts. You can be sure that the registered roofers in Auckland will use the correct flashings and fittings to ensure the long life of your steel roof. No leaky homes!
