The lion’s share of our business involves waterproofing low-slope membrane roofs. More commonly referred to as ‘flat roofs’, these roofs endured plenty of bad press in previous decades due to leaks caused by poor workmanship, risky detailing, irresponsible removal of critical components to reduce cost, or poor maintenance.
We have always ensured water-tightness of low-slope membrane roofs via our multi-pronged approach:
- working with building contractors to ensure the substrate has been constructed to the Building Code prior to installation (slope being critical)
- specifying only proven, nationally accredited and international standard membrane systems; and installing them in full and to the manufacturer’s specifications (best practice).
Our installers have nationally recognised qualifications in the form of NZQA’s National Certificate in Membrane Roofing and/or LBP (Licensed Building Practitioner) certification.
Some of our membrane suppliers also have their own comprehensive licensing programmes which our team members have all attended and passed.
