The Process once accepted

First you will receive an introduction to your personal operations manager who is backed by his/her team of delivery guys and foremen. He/she is available 7 days a week to answer any questions you may have regarding your roof. We ask that only urgent calls be made outside working hours.

  • Next, the scaffolding will go up approximately two weeks before the job starts so that all accurate measurements can be taken safely.
  • Our roofers will then start on site, weather permitting and provided that the roof booked before yours hasn’t experienced any delays. All delays are unavoidable, we work tirelessly on improving our systems and have knocked out every kink. Any delay will be communicated to you by your operations manager.
  • Once the roof has been completed the foreman on site will carry out a quality check to ensure that nothing has been missed.
  • Finally, the operations management team will carry out the final quality check and sign the job off

Materials we work with

We remove all material that is currently on your roof; Metal roofing,  Metal and concrete Tile, Butynol, Asbestos however we will only reinstall long run roofing iron.

There are two main suppliers of long run roofing iron in the New Zealand Market, COLORCOTE and COLORSTEEL®.

Each supplier has a 2-3-tiered product system based on the climate; please feel free to call us for a full run down on which product will best suit your home.

Roofing Selections

0.40 gauge

0.40 gauge is the most cost-effective option, many residential roofs that we install are 0.40 gauge. It is a lighter gauge steel and can dent if walked on.

0.55 gauge

0.55 gauge is thicker steel and is becoming more popular among residential roofs which was once mostly used in commercial roofing. This is less likely to dent when walked by servicemen (plumbers etc.) It also has greater resistance to uplift. In some cases (high wind zones) it may be the only option.


Suitable for moderate climatic conditions, ZinaCore has a hot-dipped aluminium/zinc alloy coating over a steel substrate. It has an acrylic or polyester top coat baked on a polyester primer, giving an extremely durable paint system that resists UV damage and provides excellent gloss and colour retention.


Suitable for mild and moderate inland settings to severe coastal environments right around the country. It’s made tough – in accordance with the ISO9001 quality management system – yet

forsakes nothing when it comes to aesthetic appeal, boasting a range of colours and profiles suited to everything from residential to commercial buildings; from traditional styles to contemporary designs.


Designed for ‘Severe marine’, up to 100m from the coastline, the superior corrosion resistance of MagnaFlow, makes it an ideal choice for demanding coastal environments. The magnesium in the aluminium/zinc/magnesium coating ‘magically’ helps zinc flow over cut edges, sealing them against exposure which will cause corrosion.


The ideal solution for rugged coastlines. Designed specifically for New Zealand’s more extreme conditions, Maxx will stand up to higher atmospheric salt concentrations. Appropriate for roofing, cladding, gutters, downpipes, and fences.

Aluminium – COLORCOTE

A premium metal roofing product, designed to withstand the harshest conditions. Aluminium doesn’t rust and is suitable for use in ‘Very severe’ marine environments, right up to the waterline, or for acidic exposure in harsh industrial or geothermal areas. Under AlumiGard’s durable baked-on paint systems is the same marine grade aluminium alloy boats are made from.


Zincalume zinc/aluminium alloy-coated steel has a 45% zinc, 55% aluminium alloy coating which offers superior corrosion resistance compared to galvanised steel in most environments (particularly coastal environments). This is the unpainted product found under the coating of ZinaCore and Endura.


The technical specifications of ZinaCore and Endura are the same, as are the warranties. Both companies use New Zealand steel and the coloured finish is achieved through the same paint system. These products are interchangeable and we will usually suggest which one to use based on which supplier is able to provide us with the necessary bespoke flashings in the shortest time frame

at the scheduled time of your reroof; flashings are often only able to be measured and made once other parts of the roof have been completed so delays in receiving these can hold up the entire job. MagnaFlow and Maxx vary in composition and we will generally advise the use of one rather than the other based on the warranty available for your specific job.
