This was the main roofing style used in New Zealand until the 1970’s. If you have a bungalow or villa you really should have a Coloursteel corrugated roofing iron to retain the character of the home.

Corrugated iron needs to be installed on roof pitches greater that 11° (if your roof is less than this other profiles are more appropriate) and should be painted every 10-15 years. Corrugated Iron has the great advantage that it can be ordered in any length and then cut to any size or shape according to your requirements.

If you are fortunate enough to live near the coast, please ensure you choose the most appropriate Coloursteel roofing to handle the sea spray and seagull droppings.
