Flat Roofs or Commercial Application
High performance elastomeric SBS torch-on roofing membranes developed for use in high performance built-up systems on flat, pitched or curved roofs.
Elevated SBS torch-on capsheets also feature a unique patented mini groove profile that enables up to 30% faster application times and uses 25% less gas than traditional torch-on membranes.
30% faster application than traditional torch-on membranes.
Technically advanced low heat-reactive bitumen.

Commercial Roofs - There are multiple Types of EPDM Applications
The EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) single-ply rubber roofing membrane has been an appealing choice of the low-slope commercial roofing industry for over 40 years.
The number one roofing choice of architects, roof consultants and contractors for both new construction and replacement roofing projects according to market surveys from Building Design and Construction, and Roofing/Siding/Insulation magazines, and the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA).
EPDM has gained industry-wide acceptance and respect by providing immediate and long-term roofing solutions. As more emphasis is placed on the sustainable performance of building materials, EPDM continues to be the roofing material that stands the test of time.
An asphalt shingle is a type of roof shingle. They are one of the most widely used roofing covers because they are relatively inexpensive and fairly simple to install.
Shingles tend to last longer where the weather stays consistent, either consistently warm, or constistently cool. Thermal shock can damage shingles, when the ambient temperature changes dramatically within a very short period of time. Proper roof ventilation can extend the service life of a roof. Shingles should not be applied when temperatures are below 10ºC (50ºF), as each shingle must seal to the layer below it to form a monolithic structure
Concrete roof tile is made of sand, cement, and water. The exact materials vary somewhat with each manufacturer but basically contain Portland cement, blended hydraulic cements and fly ash, sand, and other aggregates. The products from most manufacturers look very similar in size and shapes and colors. There are several manufacturers of concrete tile.
Concrete roof tile has three main appearances based on their profiles:
Flat Profile concrete roof tile is flat - no curves when viewed from its butt.
Low Profile concrete roofing tile has small curves when viewed from its butt that have a rise to width ratio equal to 1:5 or less.
High Profile concrete tile has larger curves when viewed from its butt that have a rise to width ratio greater than 1:5.
Concrete tile is available in several different colors and a couple of textures. The surface texture of the tile can be smooth or rough. Most are color impregnated rather than just slurry coated.
Concrete tile is available in standard weight and lightweight tile. It is advisable to stay away from lightweight tile if you can. They are much weaker and hard to walk on without breaking some and are very susceptible to breakage from hail and heavy snow loads compared to standard weight Concrete tile. Lightweight tile costs more than standard weight. In my opinion it would be better money spent to use the extra money it would cost for lightweight tile for consultation fees of a structural engineer and use the standard weight tile.
Standing Seam Metal
Primarily manufactured from recycled steel and aluminum, which themselves can be recycled at the end of their life, metal roofing is environmentally friendly by making excellent use of what otherwise would be scrap metal, buried in a junkyard somewhere to pollute the environment for hundreds of years.
And by its very nature, metal is impenetrable to the elements, lasts a very long time, and reflects most of the sunlight off of your roof, rather then heating up and absorbing it into the building. This leaves you with lighter energy bills, and who doesn't want that?
A. Residential Metal Roofing - We don't usually think a metal roof could look good on a house. But that perception is changing. Metal is the fastest growing material in the whole roofing industry, for both Residential and Commercial purposes. Metal roofs are no longer drab and grey. Coming in a variety of designs and with over 30 standard colors (and unlimited combinations of custom colors), metal roofing offers the ultimate in design flexibility. Shingles, look out!
B.Commercial Metal Roofing - Any commercial building owner knows that a metal roof can either save or expend a lot of money. The roofs vary greatly in quality and expense, as well as the warranty. We offer 2 types of standard commercial roofing designs. Both are excellent roofing choices and pass all wind, fire and impact resistance certifications.
C.Metal Roofing's Durability and Energy Efficiency - And where metal roofing really triumphs is where it counts: Durability and Energy Efficiency. Metal Roofs have proven to last twice as long as asphalt shingle or rubber roofing. And they reflect a huge portion of the sun's heat energy back into the sky. So this drastically reduces the energy requirements.
For many people, choosing a roof is primarily about style, and in this respect, a modern, lightweight Gerard roof offers a myriad of different options to suit architecture of all kinds.
But equally important is peace of mind. You want to feel confident that your roof will continue to protect your home and its precious contents even under the most extreme conditions imaginable.
Gerard roofs have been thoroughly proven over time right throughout New Zealand and in over 120 countries around the world.
You won’t need to worry about the weight
While a concrete tile roof on an average home can weigh around 10 tonnes, the equivalent Gerard satin finish steel tile roof would weigh just one tonne.
You won’t need to worry about the wind
Because Gerard interlocking tiles are fixed horizontally, a Gerard roof is significantly more secure in high winds than vertically fixed roofs such as concrete tiles or longrun iron.
You won’t need to worry about the rain
A properly installed Gerard steel tile roof is fully weatherproof, and unlike traditional concrete or clay tiles, Gerard tiles won’t crack and let in water.
You won’t need to worry about sea spray
The protective coatings on Gerard roof tiles include a special combination of aluminium and zinc, which provides up to eight times the corrosion resistance of alternative steel roofing products.
You won’t need to worry about snow or ice
Gerard roofs have been well proven in the cold. They are unaffected by snow, frost or ice and because the tiles are made of steel, they can easily withstand heavy snow loadings.
Copper roofs offer corrosion resistance, durability, long life, low maintenance, radio frequency shielding, lightning protection, and sustainability benefits. Copper roofs are often one of the most architecturally distinguishable features of prominent buildings, including churches, government buildings, and universities.
Today, copper is used in roofing systems, flashings and copings, rain gutters and downspouts, domes, spires, vaults, and various other architectural design elements.
