Coloursteel: Metal re-reroofing in Coloursteel has become a popular option when re-roofing Auckland homes. For those complete roof replacements from rusted metal sheets that are past their due date, you are sure to be pleasantly surprised by the durability, anti-corrosion properties, and its ability to retain very long-lasting colour.
Zincalume: This material is a combination of half zinc and half aluminium. Galvanised steel is still produced today; however, ZINCALUME® is more widely used amongst Auckland and Rodney reroofing jobs.
Metal thickness: The thickness of sheet metals is specified by gauge. In New Zealand you have 0.4 and 0.5 guage. Traditionally the 0.4 guage have been used and while we do install 0.4 on customer request as it is slightly thinner and more cost effective, we would suggest you investigate the 0.5 gauge. The 0.5 gauge has definitely advantage for instance:
- 0.5 is thicker and noticeable quieter when it rains and when someone walks on it
- it does note dent as easily
- thicker does extend the life of the roof
