The Complete Solution

DuraRoof tiles are today the leading choice for most roofing solutions.The combination of the building industry’s strongest materials, namely steel and stone are expertly pressed and bound together into a panel that replicates heavy traditional concrete tiles without all the obvious weight and costs. Heavy-duty galvanised steel or aluzinc coated metal sheets are profiled into various stylish designs and coated with a layer of acrylic base coat. Natural stone chips are then embedded in the surface and a layer of protective acrylic top coat is applied to preserve and seal the tile. A protective acrylic coat is applied to the bottom.

The stone bonded coating will give your residential or commercial project a durable finish and an immaculate appearance that is unique and textured. At a sixth of the weight of heavy and expensive concrete tiles, it is also the easiest to handle and install and is your most cost-effective roofing solution. DuraRoof tiles offer superb structural integrity and are available with a 30-year warranty.
