Frequently Asked Questions

What are shingles made of?2020-04-28T15:12:07+10:00

Our GAF shingles are a fibreglass mat, embedded with asphalt and ceramic granules.

Why are they a better option than tiles?2020-04-28T15:02:21+10:00

Shingles are much lighter, they are also much stronger. They’re safer to walk on, no algae growth and are maintenance free.

Why are they a better option than metal?2020-04-28T15:14:15+10:00

Our shingles have a higher thermal rating, are quieter, safer to walk on and they won’t scratch or dent.

Marine ply is pretty expensive. Is that what you use to ensure waterproofing?2020-04-28T15:03:56+10:00

No! Marine ply is not required. We utilise ply, of varying sizes and thickness, depending on the rafter and truss sizes and their spacing. We then have a waterproofing layer, that protects the wood from moisture and water.

How do I get a price for roofing with asphalt shingles?2020-04-28T15:05:01+10:00

How can you supply shingle roofs across three states but be located only in Melbourne?2020-04-28T15:06:48+10:00

We have a network of fully trained roofing contractors across the three states at the moment.
That enables us to connect with customers to provide a first class service with regards to supply and install.

How do you actually lay the shingles on the roof?2020-04-28T15:07:53+10:00

Initially, plywood sheeting is used to cover the roof. Over the plywood, we then install “Deck Armor”, a one-way breathable membrane. The shingles are then fastened to the sheeting using flat-headed clout roofing nails.
