A roof and its accessories need not be boringly conventional, but can be an exciting architectural feature that adds colour, texture and personality to a home.
Steel & Tube Roofing Products is in an ideal position to supply the roof shopper with a customised solution for their needs, according to commercial manager Rod Newbold.
A division of Steel & Tube Holdings Limited, Steel & Tube Roofing is New Zealand’s largest manufacturer of Colorsteel longrun roofing materials, rainwater systems, gutters, fascias and flashing.
Its seven manufacturing and distribution sites are all certified to ISO 9001:2000. The company’s range of roofing profiles and claddings includes Custom Orb Corrugate, trapezoidal or rib profiles, trough section profiles and commercial profiles.
All the products are available in a range of finishes including galvanised, Zincalume and Colorsteel, as well as in non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, copper and stainless steel.
Mr Newbold says New Zealand Steel’s new products Colorsteel Endura and Colorsteel Maxx prepainted steel, introduced to the market in 2004 to take advantage of the latest advances in coating technology, were designed to meet the demands of New Zealand’s range of environments.
Integral part of every building
“The roof is an integral part of every building. Colorsteel prepainted steel roofing can weather our harsh climate and is suitable for almost every design, long straight lines or gentle curves, to create stunning homes,” he says.
“Steel’s light weight gives greater design flexibility, while the colours give the designer the choice of blending or creating interest through building design.”
He recommends that builders discuss their site location and building design with Steel & Tube Roofing Products’ technical staff to find the correct roofing solution, and to ensure the profile and finish will perform to their expectations.
“With correct product selection, installation and maintenance, a Steel & Tube Roofing Products roof will remain attractive and weatherproof for many years,” he says.
The company offers a toll-free technical help line, an online list of recommended installers and a comprehensive library of design details.
Prepainted and metallic coated products are suitable for the collection of drinking water, and are backed by a comprehensive warranty.
