A New Roof Refreshes a Home!

If you are planning a home upgrade,
your roof is a great place to start.

This is not a fresh coat of paint (does anyone do that anymore?).  This is advanced technology to reduce radiated heat, with a durable roof covering which is environmentally friendly, with a highly attractive finish, in 13 outstanding colours and three distinctive style profiles.

It’s also a remarkable and long lasting investment, which secures your family and property from the ravages of Caribbean weather, while adding real value to your home.

COLORBOND® and Zincalume® roof sheeting
are industry standards.

In our 40+ years of regional experience there are no more reliable products for our complex weather environment.  

From sea blast to tropical rains, constant shifting wind patterns, storms and hurricanes, these premium roof sheets withstand what nature provides.

All COLORBOND® steel 
contains recycled content and is 100% recyclable.

COLORBOND® features:

Thermal efficiency

Standard COLORBOND® colours feature Thermatech® solar reflectance technology, designed to reflect more of the sun's heat on hot days, which can mean less dependence on air-conditioning and reduced heat stress for your roof.

Sustainable Performance

COLORBOND® steel is durable and resilient to harsh climate and its long life helps conserve resources and energy that may otherwise be invested in products with a shorter life span.

Easy Maintenance

Simple maintenance of COLORBOND® steel by regular washing with clean, fresh water will not only prolong its life, but also maintain its attractiveness for longer periods, thus protecting your investment.

5 Layers of Protection

Genuine COLORBOND® is far more than just ‘paint on steel’.

With enhanced corrosion resistance, pretreatment layer to improve the adhesion of further coatings, a corrosion inhibitive primer baked onto the surface and a top coat, baked on, to provide resistance to chipping, flaking and blistering.

COLORBOND®  is good for your home,
your wallet and our planet.

Zincalume® features:

Zincalume® is a tried and tested high performance steel for roofing or siding, with a manufacturer recommendation for the use of Zincalume® steel for the collection of drinking water. 

Traditionally an industrial product, it can change and enhance any personal construction project.

Therefore, in terms of design, Zincalume® is a cost effective and eco friendly material, which creates many new avenues for its application.

From garage roofs and siding, to garden partitions and fences, modern gates and home details, this only requires a little imagination.  

We have even seen the most innovative internal ceilings created with Zincalume®, giving a distinctive visual punch to a modern home.

Steel sheeting is just that, 
until we give it character.

Our three distinctive profiles
will enhance any construction project.

  • Traditional 10/3. Old fashioned style. Timeless.
  • Modern 107.  Fresh, clean and sharp.
  • Spanish Tile. Sophisticated,
    with Mediterranean charm in reliable steel.

Roofing Accessories

Our comprehensive collection of accessories will secure and enhance your roof.

Sealant Tape

A high adhesion double sided tape, recommended for use in roofing. When applied appropriately, the tape maintains the integrity of roofing sheet edges, reducing lift due to sustained high winds and under-sheet penetration by the elements.

Bat proofing strips

Dramatically reduce under-sheet roof penetration by insects, bats and rodents.

Roofing Screws

Our Roofing Screws, which are tested in extreme environmental conditions, are made from Carbon Steel giving superior strength.
The unique unthreaded upper section of the screw reduces the effects of oxidisation on the area not embedded in rafters or purlins. The washer is made from a much more durable rubber than neoprene, reducing early deterioration and breakage.

Ply-Foil Roofing Insulation

Ply-Foil is a multilayer, reflective insulation, which comes in rolls for use in both specialty and standard construction projects.

Two outer layers of metalised film reflect 96% of the radiant heat. Each layer of film is bonded to a tough layer of polyethylene for strength.
The inner layers of bubble-pack resist conductive heat flow, while a centre layer of polyethylene gives Ply-Foil additional strength.

K-Style Aluminium Guttering

To complete a clean reliable and stylish roof, we offer 5" Aluminium Guttering with fittings and accessories.
